This idea was first suggested by Tom Woodward and has been a long standing popular ds106 assignment. The assignment is to reduce a movie, story, or event into its basic elements, then take those visuals and reduce them further to simple icons, four of them. Write your blog post up but do not give away the answer, let people guess! The challenge is to find the icons that suggest the story, but do not make it so easy. For icons a great resource is The Noun Project.

DESIGN MEGAPOST!

This week we had to do 15 stars worth of design assignments. This is what I meant by the hardest part of my week. I always thought I knew how to use Photoshop but I guess I was very, very mistaken. I used Photoshop because it is and extremely common …

Week 6: One Story/Four Icons

In this weeks design assignment we continued on our design challenges. We were asked to do 15 stars of assignments, two of which needed to come from our “One Story/Four Icons” assignment. For this we needed to choose a movie to represent in four icons. I chose of my favorites …

Domino (2005)

I used the same movie for three of the five assignments from the design assignments.  I’m not sure if anyone has seen it, but I hope so or none of these are going to make sense!

The design blitz we did helped me to really identify different elements of design …

And they lived happily ever after — ??

For this assignment, we had to reduce a movie, story, or event into its basic elements, then take the visuals and reduce them further to simple icons, four of them.

One Story, Four Icons

One Story Four Icons

For this assignment, we had to summarize the main plots of a movie into four icons.  You can try to figure out what it is.

I got all the pictures from The Noun Project and compiled them into one image using Gimp.…

Stitching Together a Movie in 4 Icons

When it came time to do my One Story, Four Icons assignment, I’ve realized that I have a bit of an odd taste in movies. I’d much rather see live theatre or go to a concert than watch a film, and the films I do tend to watch tend to …

Can Four Bits Really Relate the Whole ???

Prologue

Now I have known for years that two-bits is a quarter, and four bits is fifty cents. In fact, use of the word bits in currency terms had all but stopped before I was born, because I remember asking “what does two-bits mean?” when I heard my parents and …

Guess the Story!

I decided to do the 4 Icon Story assignment. As soon as I read the assignment I knew immediately which story I wanted to do. I loved this story and it is still very fresh in my mind. I would be impressed if anyone guessed this one.

I didn’t find …

Take A Guess

To really get you thinking visually, I chose to do the One Story/Four Icons assignment (**). It may sound easy at first, but picking four images to represent a story, without giving it away, is actually challenging! And I loved creating it! I chose this assignment because I enjoyed looking …

One Story/ Four Icons: Guess the Movie!(**)

For my One Story/Four Icons image, I used 4 images from The Noun Project website. That’s all I am going to say, and it is up to YOU to guess the movie!

What’s the name of that movie again?

The next assignment I decided to do was One Story/Four Icons. This assignment was to “reduce a movie, story, or event into its basic elements, then take those visuals and reduce them further to simple icons, four of them.”

Another part of this assignment was to NOT share what …

One Movie, Four Snippets

From the assignment One Story / Four Icons: This idea was first suggested by Tom Woodward and has been a long standing popular ds106 assignment, but mis-filed in the Visual Assignments category (see the 80+ examples done there). This is really a design task, so hang ‘em here from now…

Design Assignment #1

I did this one first, worth 3 stars.
Here’s the image:

I chose these images off a simple google search, simply because other websites did not have the icons I needed. The four icons featured are a girl, a barber chair, a razor and pie. It took a while for…

A Tale in 4 Pictures

I came across the One Story/Four Icons and thought it looked really cool and a bit challenging. You come up with 4 distinct elements that describe a story. The challenge for me was to come up with a story I could come up with 4 different elements that would describe…

The Hardest 4 Icon Challenge Yet

I’ve been following Jim Groom’s “Name that 80s movie” 4 icon challenge series, and while he promised that they would become more difficult, I think the many summers I spent glued to the TV watching HBO for hours on end gives me an unfair advantage (I totally nailed the Flash…
