Use creative commons licensed images to design a poster about how groovy Creative Commons is! Use a tool like Compfight to find creative commons licensed images in flickr (be sure to select the right option on the search pane), and then use photo editing software to add your message, call to arms, rallying cry, urgent plea. INclude as well a creative commons logo-- look to the creative commons itself for ones to use.

Most importantly, in your poster be sure to give attribution credit to the source image.

We’re Gonna Do It Anyway, Even If It Doesn’t Pay

Everything is free now

Even if it doesn’t pay

Mission: ds106 – support Creative Commons with a poster

I went all over the place on this one. I wanted to do something with cloning, clones’ rights, and the future, so first I thought I might use a picture of clone troopers (who might thank you with candy), but I decided not to mess with licensed action figures. Then…

Flock Together & Share

“Sharing is Caring,” words my mother instilled in me a long time ago. I found this picture on the Creative Commons website and it looked as if all the origami birds are looking over and reviewing something. That is where I got the idea of  ”Flocking Together.. Sharing Ideas.”…
