This assignment was to create a kids computer book from a well known kids book. I chose Are you my mother? by Dr Seuss.was by far the best assignment because I enjoy reading children books and want to know all about computers.
In the Washington DC metropolitan area there are several forms of public transportation including bus, rail, metro (train) and even a bike share program Each of the surrounding communities have their own form of transportation as well. Northern Virginia has a system called VRE (Virginia Railway express). While of these are different transportation system and looking at the logos each appear to has created to appeal to the audience in there own special way. According to research Virginia chose to use its state colors (red) when it created its logo. I thought to myself they probably didn’t realize that red is a color that shows warmth. They also chose a diamond shape where the font is not easy to see while driving which is bad as defined by the definition of Typography or the visual part of the words word.
This was the most difficult to get really close as the reason it is so blurry.
Maryland chose a font that actually looks like a train and has the color of orange which is also a warm color. They also created the logo with the color Blue which is a cool color that is associated with calmness, trust, and professionalism. Hey, it is expensive to ride and most of the people who use it are professionals who live in the suburbs.
Washington Metropolitan Transportation Authority(WMTA) chose the color Black and White and this says a lot because the color black is associated with power, elegance, formality, and fits well with the many people who commute into work to Capital Hill.
Typography “is the visual component of the written word” – It is the form in which text is displayed, and the characteristics of the type used- Is san serif always better? why or why not? What do aspects of font weight, style, spacing, kerning have to do with how a message is transmitted and received?
The food was “off the chart” which means delicious.
Litsen carefully to the sounds of eating, cutting the meat with a nife and fork, scrapping the plate when done, loading the dishwasher with the dirty dishes.
This is a gallery of photos taken with an iPhone from the perspective of light which I felt made an interesting assignment. I had significant difficulty at first getting started with using the iPhone because it is my employer provided iPhone and I had only used it for accessing my work email. If you are thinking that I am non-technical you are incorrect, I am just not interested in gadgets and didn’t think it was necessary to use it for taking pictures. Besides, I have an inexpensive digital camera that I use for picture taking. I also decided to take the advice from our professor to use an iPhone. Taking the pictures went fine, however I had difficulty uploading the photos to my PC because it was the first time for me. I was expecting it to be a little more user friendly. Just like when I plug my iPhone into my iMac, the computer immediately syncs everything up.
The gallery contains a several pictures including one of my favorite place to visit, Chocolate World at Hershey Park. It also as 2 photos of showing the light from the stoop of my house based on the previous assignment using thirds. A photo from inside of the house that has a glow of light coming from the outside. A picture of light taken while laying down of the staircase to the basement, a picture of an Aliens hand in the light taken from the tv screen of a movie that my husband was watching, and picture of a shadow which was produced by shining a light on an object in my house.
There was no real reason why I chose to take these types of pictures from the perspective of light other than the assignment asked to take a picture in bright light and unfortunately when I stated taking pictures there weren’t many ways I could think of where bright lights were available because it was a dreary day and my house doesn’t have many windows or lights that are very bright.
