Weekly Recap

Design has turned out to be pretty tricky, there a major learning curve with using photoshop. One of my room mates who is in the art school was able to help me a bit though

1. Looking through the albums without sound was really interesting. Putting them together reminded me of the way you put together a stripper name– The name of your first pet and the street that you grew up on. Mine is Ella Franklin

2. So I made my own album cover, but I don’t think I would be into the music of Xianjie Subdistrict

3. There were so many examples of minimalism of things that I like, it was so hard to choose. Do I stay current and do the sigils from Game of Thrones or do I do something a bit older like Jaws. I the end though I chose to do Arrested Developmet–> a crowd pleaser.

4. For the movie poster I was a bit more up to date using a movie that came out only two weekends ago. Spring Breakers has been getting a lot of press regarding the cast, so I just labeled them as they are.

5. Ted Talk– I tried to think of a lot of different movie characters and what their ultimate Ted Talk would be. I chose Shosh from girls, she talks a lot. In the season finale she has a brief monologue going over everything her (ex) boyfriend ray hates.

6. Color Splash– this was definitely my most creative (meaning artistic) creation thus far, I’m really happy with how it turned out


Design Create #4- Ted Talk


For my fantasy Ted Talk, I chose Shosh from Girls giving a talk on ” The Correlation Between Men’s Willingness to Pursue Employment and Number of Things Hated”. At the end of this season, Shosh broke up with her boyfriend because he lacked any sort of motivation and hated everything but her. She could not longer tolerate his negativity in her life as she grows into a full formed human.

So first I found a picture of the actress that plays shosh standing up, it was strangely hard to find full body pictures of people standing up. I cut her out of that photo and put her into the template. Then I made a graph of all the things Shosh lists that Ray hates in their break up scene.I estimated how much he hates each item.
