nose picking PSA

Using Gimp or a similar program, create a public service announcement billboard on something that really aggravates you about people, society, the world, etc. It can be serious, goofy, but not offensive. Use a 680 x 300 work space in order to mimic the space of a billboard and have fun with how your positioning, font, colors, and images can help get your message across in a small space. Take it to the next level but superimposing it on a photo of an existing billboard!

PSA Billboard

For this assignment I was tasked with creating a billboard addressing something that aggravates me about people, society or the world. I thought this would be a great excuse to let people know that just throwing trash out the window of your car isn’t cool and they should wait to …

PSA: We are all Animals

? A wild ride, over hallway ground
Such a lust for school, the circus comes to town
We are the hungry ones, on a lightning raid
Just like a river runs, like a fire needs flame, oh
I burn for you to get out of the way ?

Rocket and Sportsmanship

Sorry Chikfila

When traveling through the South, especially when traveling to Richmond, VA, I always see billboards for Chikfila. There is usually a cow painted on the billboard which is instructing the public to eat more chicken.

For this assignment, I created my own billboard and advertised a chicken telling the public …

Keep Our World Wet

If not Global Warming, Then What?

Continuing along my steam-train of thought with the question of the week, I decided to consider the environmental issues that would be associated with a developing world that ran on steam.  Even in the real world, power-plants rely on steam generation to create electricity: …

dear virginia drivers – design assignment –

This is a PSA to Please Use Your Blinkers

Design Creation: Put a Rhino on It!

PSA: NO CROP TOPS ALLOWED

One thing that really rubs me the wrong way is when girls show up to class wearing crop tops. Crop tops are party going outfits, not classroom attire. Wearing a crop top to class makes you look unprofessional. Professors do not care to see your stomach and lower back. Other …

The Ultimate Merger

The ultimate merger assignment worth 3.5 stars is where you have to merge two different business logos. I decided to go with two very competitive companies Coke and Pepsi. Using Paint, I took the circle logo from Pepsi, erased the word Pepsi, and then inserted the Coca-Cola logo. I then …

YOUR TURN SIGNAL. USE IT. – Design Assignment #2

This is perhaps one of my greatest pet peeves on the road – people who don’t use their turn signals. I’ve been driving for 5 years without any sort of accident happening to me or because of me, and I think at least 10% of that 100% success rate is …

PSA Billboard

After a particularly infuriating trip to target, I decided to use the DS106 PSA Billboard assignment to vent my frustrations (Why do people think they can just walk around shopping, playing horrible music LOUDLY on their iphones?!). To accomplish this submission, I messed around with Gimp – a free photo-editing …

I hope no one you’ve ever known has wasted money on this.

 

This is one of my biggest pet peeves.  Since when was it cool for your car to be really loud?

One of my friends got rid of his muffler.  Whats the point and why is this necessary?

Made this in GIMP and thought I would add the Jackie Chan …
