This week started off pretty rough for me. The “Vignelli Canon” was a tough read to say the least. As the week progressed, things started to click more and make sense as I was going through and learning about the elements of design. I found myself looking for them when I was out driving around or scrolling through my phone. Creating the GIFs was by far the most fun. I’ll probably make some more for future use. Besides the Vignelli assignment, I choose to do an icon project for one of my design assignments. I realize that I could have dropped that one and moved on to something different, but I have been accused of being stubborn in the past, and I guess I wouldn’t argue that. I don’t understand why this was so difficult for me. I probably should have used a different program, but time was not on my side. Also, as I’m writing this summary, I just realized that I was supposed to do five assignments adding up to twelve stars. Well, I only did four, but at least I did enough to add up to the 12 stars.
