Next, I began collaborating with my Radio Show group. I created my Radio Show Bumper which was also my first Audio Assignment. We have all decided which topics will be discussing in the Radio Show. I have began researching my topic which is 80s Fashion Trends for Men. I talked about this a little within my Radio Show Progress post.
Lastly, I commented on Abby Cassell Radio Logo post. I throughly enjoyed the design of her logo. Also, I commented on Fun Billboard by Hinoiri. I think billboard art can be incredibly cool and inspiring and deserves more credit.
This week our group have decided all the topics we are going to discuss in our Radio Show. Also, we have all created our Bumpers and Commercials.
My topic is 80s Fashion Trends for Men. I did some research into this topic so I can talk about it and possibly relate it today’s fashion trends for men. I found this website https://www.menshealth.com.au/80s-fashion-trends-for-men. I will be using these 10 best 80s fashion trends in my discussion.
I created a radio commercial about a new portable copy and paste tool. I related this invention to Molly Ringwald on the Breakfast Club. I created a voice memo of both my voice and background music. Then I combined them into GarageBand. I hope you enjoy this commercial!
For this assignment I found a youtube video of It’s Your Wedding Day from The Wedding Singer and then I did a voice memo about my experience and memories of this song. This musical takes place in the 80s and brings back the music and fashion. I combined the very beginning and end of the song into my voice memo by using GarageBand. I hope you enjoy the song just as much as I do!
This a short radio show bumper I created for my groups project. I recorded myself talking by voice memo and an 80s beat through youtube by voice memo. I combined both of these voice memos into GarageBand, then uploaded onto SoundCloud.
Next, I did design thoughts on Brain Pickings article about Kidd and his book. I talked a lot about how design is everywhere you look. You may not realize it but most everything you see, use, or touch was designed. Also, I talked about how design is not always easy it comes with its challenges along the way.
Next, I did four different design assignments. I was able to relate two of the assignments to the 80s theme by using 80s slang words and movies. The other two assignments were also fun I particularly enjoyed creating the body image book cover.
Lastly, I did the DesignBlitz by looking at various book and movie cover designs. I found covers that represent typography, color, minimalism/use of space, and dominance. Also, I commented on One Story, Four Icons by @IezziHannah.
