Week 8: Recording, Bots and Daily Creates

It’s week 8 and yet it doesn’t feel like it at all! It’s almost weird not having a weekly post to look at, the normal influx of comments and the usual flow of work. And yet, I can’t complain because it was because of spring […]

Sunrise Survivors Debut

This Wednesday we began the recording of the Sunrise Survivors official first (and last) episode. We met in the HCC and rented a USB microphone to begin our recording. I know many people have come up with scripts and we considered doing the same but […]

Rise and Shine, Listeners!

After a long struggle with internet following the insane windstorm this past Friday, I can finally share the beginnings of our radio project. Last Thursday was the first meeting of The Sunrise Survivors: Elaina, Jillian, Alyssa and me! We coordinated a time to meet at […]

Week 6: Playing Catch Up

By now, my desktop has become littered with saved images, PhotoShop files, drafts, transparents, half-edited messes and more. Spring break is calling my name and my computer would like a clean out, please. But I had an enjoyable week of doing one of my favorite […]

Designer Dash

This week we were tasked with a design blitz, the sequel to the ever popular photo blitz. I luckily went to the grocery store this past weekend, which gave me the perfect material to snap. There were ads, signage in the store and products that […]

Post ID: 113

Addison Cruz in her natural element: passing by peoples’ eyes while she documents their every moves. She likes to be on the streets, in the action and capturing moments in society, big or small. An amateur journalist, she considers herself a ‘documentarian’ in her own […]

Design is Adult’s Play

This week I absorbed two Ted talks by famous graphic designers who have done work for the The Met Opera, Quicksilver and more. I’m not sure if this was how it was meant to be taken, but to me the two speakers seemed like two […]
