Ballroom (design) Blitz!

Hey, friends! For my designblitz I just looked around my room and thought about the different aspects of design since I don’t leave my house and I don’t have anything really design oriented to find outside. I had a good time staring at the familiar objects in my room and figuring out what the purposes…

Wedding Bells for RM

THIS IS SO GOOFY IM EMBARRASSED Y’ALL Anyways ummmm yeah… I decided to try the Wedding Invitation assignment. I’m embarrassed that I actually made this, but enjoy. Ok so by now we all know that I have an obsession with The Vampire Diaries. My friend sent me a card for my birthday with a little…

RIP Rollie <3

For my first assignment this week, I chose the Tell A Tale On A Tapestry assignment because I thought it would be interesting to use ancient pictures and typical designs to convey a story that is current. I am sad to say that one of my cats, Rollie, passed away this past weekend and I…

RM’s Design Thoughts

When I started reading the original Brain Pickings post for this week, I quickly realized how easy it would be to fall down many different rabbit holes. Actually, the first time I was trying to read through it, I ended up on some article about Freud and his work. This was interesting to me (being…

Thinking About Listening

I started thinking about radio shows at the beginning of the week, but I wanted to write about my thoughts after I had more firsthand experience with audio and radio components.

For my final assignment this week, I worked on the Sound Effects Story assignment. This assignment asked us to tell a less than 90 second story using only sounds. I had a lot of fun making this audio and figuring out how to evoke fear through sound. Here is my creepy sound effects story! Before…

Listening to My Front Yard

Today was such a beautiful day!! Can y’all believe it was really 65 degrees and sunny in February? I spent a lot of time outside today and got inspired to work on the Create a Place assignment. The task of this assignment is to use sounds to transport the listener to a specific place. I…

Relaxing With RM

Anybody feel like they need to relax? Maybe try the All the Relaxation assignment! This assignment asks you to create your own relaxation track, like the ones on YouTube that can be played for 10+ hours by combining any and all sounds that are soothing and calming to you. I really enjoy videos/audios like that…

Sounds Like Week 5

I’m not gonna lie y’all, this week was a struggle! I have never worked with audio editing or Audacity before, so I was really intimidated by the workload for this week. I also ended up getting behind on my schoolwork, so that made doing creative work a little more difficult, but I think I’m actually…
