1/22/2015 Writing communication

Design is to writing as air is to breathing, one is necessary for the other to be possible. This essay about the correlation between writing and design is very eye opening. When everyone was just a little child we all had to write our first paper and it was horrible no doubt about it, their was no design the grammar was atrocious and your thoughts were probably a mess. As we have developed over the course of our education these elements have increased 100 fold for most people. Over that exponential growth of our skills our design was also increased. In order to have a good paper you need to have an interesting layout. Without an "eye grabber" your target audience will get bored very easily and just stop reading your paper, so design is of the utmost importance. The way you design your paper very much shows how you communicative on a daily basis. You can even think of this as a gateway into your authors mind. One could say this for many reason, for example if the layout is poor and thoughts have no correlation it is safe to assume that the author is a scatterbrain.  Were on the other end of the spectrum if the paper is very neatly organized with bullet points or something of that manner you can assume that the author is very organized.


I am very skeptical of blogs. I say this because I feel that they can be useful but at the same time hurt the writer or reader.  This is because to me a blog could help a person through hard times. For example if I had a death in my family that was very tragic I could surf the internet for a person that has a blog dealing with death and maybe that would be able to help me cope with this loss more. This would be an example of a blog that is good. Another example of a good blog is one that someone just goes on the vent their feelings and emotions to a mass of people that really don't know their face or their background which to some people could be a form of release. Now their are also harmful blogs. Say someone has a blog that is just their to make fun of someone or a group of people. This could be hurtful and serves no real point other then to poke fun at someone. A blogger signify to me a person that needs to vent to a general group of people or discussing the every day happenings of their life. A blog might be useful to me to form a community of people that like the same things I do. We could discuss what is happening with movies or games or anything relay

WorkCareer, Vocation

Work. This could be anything from physical labor to researching for a school assignment. Work for me can be described as anything that has no long term meaning in life. For example if I am Re-mulching the garden it looks good for a while but after so many years it will have to be forgot about.  

Career. This can be described as being a full time student to having a job in your field of interest. Working at McDonalds full time to me is not a career. A career is something that you can earn a living wage off of and provide basic amenities. 

Vocation. This word means a calling. Your vocation does not have to be a job. Vocation is something that you are passionate about and can pursue that may or may not help others. Someones vocation can be to go fishing on Saturday. Someone else's vocation can be to go on mission trips to Uganda. It vary's from person to person. Your vocation can also change over the course of your life. When you are five years old one could have said there vocation was to be the best T-Ball player in the league, but as we progress through age and get a wider view of the world our vocation could be to be the best doctor in the field. 

2/19/15 poster assignment

I am choosing the harry potter poster. Right away your eye is drawn towards the center of the poster to the wand. The wand seems to be some sort of conflict because both of these people are holding it and it is also emitting some sort of force. After you see the wand your eyes drift to the boarders of the image and you see people with blood coated faces. Finally your eyes drift down to the text which states "IT ALL ENDS 7.15" which is a very powerful statement.  The darkness of the poster suggests that it will not be a happy film and there will be depressing moments. The blood on these characters supports the idea that there will be fighting and conflict in this film also. I believe that this poster was made recently because it was digitally made and the quality is very good. Another indicator to this is that it is being shown in Imax 3D which didn't take off in popularity until recently. I believe that this is an action movie based on all of the blood and the darker elements of the poster. I believe that the designer of the poster chose the colors in this manner to portray a darker meaning. You can say this because the wand is emitting light onto the characters face and you can see that they are coated in blood.  One could assume that being coated in blood is not a good thing. They also made the text white which makes it stand out better against the darker background. The overall effect that this poster has on me is fighting and despair. I say this because you can see the anger and agony in the characters eyes to finally end their prolonged struggle. You also see that they are covered in blood. The darkness of the background also leads you to believe that this is not a movie about rainbows and sunshine.  This poster makes me want to see the movie because of the detail that went into making it.
