  • A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes

    Lily was so excited to start her course at her new college, the University of California Berkeley, called “INTRODUCTION TO DISNEY 101”, as she laid in bed the night before. She had a borderline obsessive love for any and all things Disney; she had wanted to change her name to ‘Cinderella’ or ‘Aurora’ when she…

  • K3TV News: Here For You in 4, 3, 2… And We’re Live!

     Allie, one of the best researchers for K3TV, took a deep breath, and then sighed. She’s hoping the new story idea that she just sent to her boss, the one person who can control the fate of her job, would win him over. Ever since they had broken up, she was unsure of where she…

  • Part IV: The Sudden Storm: A Red Herring

    It was four in the morning. Kelly was sitting on her bed with her duffel bag next to her. She had been unable to sleep and was tossing and turning because of the storm outside, and her increasing anxiety about what was about to take place. Every time the lightning struck, she winced quietly. Her…

  • Part III: The Tales of a Wilted Rose, & A Beastly, Unicorn Prince

    When listening to Season 1, Episode 8 of the podcast called Spooked, I was able to listen to 2 stories within one 30-minute segment. Prior to the first story, the podcast host introduced the episode with piano music in the background to set an eerie tone for the listeners, even before the scary story started.…

  • Ira Glass: Building Blocks, Decency, & Fatal Errors

    I chose to watch parts one, two, and four of the Ira Glass videos. I found his advice to be extremely compelling and interesting, especially from the perspective of someone who has never dabbled in audio storytelling for themself. Part one of this video focused on the two most important elements of audio storytelling that…

  • Design Assignment 3: Freightnening

    Cassie sat down with her seven year-old Chromebook on her bed in her matchbox-sized room and looked at the instructions for her criminology class homework on Schoology: “Make a meme that references what you are passionate about in a humorous way”. She sighs, holding her head in her hands. It has been a long day;…

  • Design Assignment 2: Color Change

              Rory looked out of the same window with rusted jail bars grasping desperately onto the surface that she had been staring at for the past three years. Well, she wasn’t entirely sure of how long it had been at this point; she stopped scraping tally marks into the wall behind her bed a few months…

  • Design Assignment 1: Contradiction Creation

      ‘How are we going to get this message out to anyone? How is this going to be possible?!’ Carly yelled, her voice rising in intensity as she continued her endless rant about the current state of the world. ‘You know, Carly, I am not sure that the zombies will go away’ because you are…

  • Design Blitz (Photo Safari)

     The five concepts that I focused on for my Design Blitz include Balance, Rhythm, Color, Dominance, and Typography, respectfully. The way that I represented balance can be seen in the top left image containing the back of a chair in my front yard. If the detailed wooden star were to be divided down the middle,…

  • Intro to Design: Summary & Assignment Links

    Introduction to Design Assignment: Summary Throughout this assignment, I learned about so many elements of graphic design that I had not previously considered nor even heard of, quite honestly. I very much benefited from learning about the use and manipulation of colors in images. I have never really thought about the way that colors could…
