Six words are enough after all
For this week you should complete two ds106 design assignments, each should be posted to your blog, appropriately tagged and categorized.
For my second design assignment I decided to do the Six word memoir idea and really thought long and hard on how I would tell my life’s story if I only had six words. And I decided I would use the following words:
Life = journey. Choose happiness and positivity.
This perfectly sums up how I have lived my life and try to do every day. No one is perfect but it is how I choose to go about every day. I had some other words but kept these. I cheated a little with the equal sign but it counts! I thought about having those words with a person at a fork in the road.
Now here is how that concept came out in an image with text. Unlike the first assignment I knew I wanted to use PowerPoint to create my idea since I am so much more comfortable with it and could do what I had in mind. I blame this on being a consultant and having so much time spent in PowerPoint. I got the text with shadow effect done first. I thought it kind of spoke the reflection of my words on a life time. Also how life mirrors what you think. Next I was starting to create some arrows to show different paths but peeked at the clip art and found something even better with the man and path image. So I went about putting them together and had the text layer on front and the image on back. I like it!
