Peer Reviewing & Revision Plan

In peer review, I presented what I have designed so far for my infographic.  My peers gave me feedback on both strengths and weaknesses: Strengths included my overall design.  My peers liked that I’m creating a timeline.  They liked my font and color selection, and how the infographic was designed towards the audience.  They also […]

Working Online 4/17

What I Did Since last class, I looked for and downloaded fonts I can use for my project.  I found a few that look exactly like the movie and book fonts for Harry Potter.  I also designed a title for my infographic, which I’m pretty pleased with.  This is always subject to change, but below […]

Proposing a Remix

For my story remix, I would like to retell Harry Potter.  I want to make an infographic, so instead of selecting just one book or one story, I would like to do something more general. I plan to make a timeline using illustrator and also maybe indesign and photoshop if I need to.  I could […]

Working Online 4/3

What Makes a Good Remix I think the best remixes take a story and tell it in a perspective that’s a little different, instead of just digitalizing an existing story or rewriting a story.  I especially like the Chamber of PostSecrets one, because it takes the story and tells it from Ginny’s perspective.  It gives […]

Presenting in Class 3/30

I am most interested in using the tool Thematic.  It allows users to share photography and design, which are two things I am interested in. I like that users can share more than one photo at a time, unlike on Instagram.  The photos also look professional and skilled, which I like.  I think this would […]
