The Big Caption – Design Assignment #2

This photo was an easy choice for me as the Quarter-finals for the World Cup are going on. Today Brazil and Colombia are playing at 4:00pm on ESPN. I found this picture on the big picture website. The link to the original picture is located on http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2014/06/2014_world_cup_goalposts_around_the_world.html. I used the …

Caption that

For my last star design assignment of the week I chose “The Big Caption,” mainly because it was one star and that’s all I needed.

For this 1-star assignment all you have to do is pick a picture off of “The Big Picture” and add a …

Wax Ain’t Cheap, you know

I completed the Big Caption today for another design assignment. The idea behind this one is that you take a photo from the Big Picture Web site and you recaption it so that you completely change the original meaning of the shot. 
The original caption on this photo: 
A worshipper…

Merry Christmas! Love, the Zielinskis

Meet the Zielinskis: Katarzyna, Gustav (yes, he is adopted), Jozef, Marcin, and Wanda.  Every year since 1974 (When little Katarzyna was the only Ziel-baby and just 3 months old), Mrs. Zielinski gets the kids together to take the annual Christmas card photo.  Every year they do something that plays on…

Playing Devil’s Advocate Through Imagery

not necessarily my own opinion, just exploring a point

I have a pathological need like to argue. It’s something that I was apparently born with, as my mother insists at a very young age I was quite obviously cut out to be a lawyer. Despite my best efforts at self-monitoring…

The Big Picture- remix (Food!)

I decided to try my hand at one of the assignments for DS106 this week, and I went with the Big Photo Remix. The idea was to take a photo from the big picture and add typography to change its meaning.  I don’t think I was that great in the…

Design Assignment I — The Big Caption

I couldn’t help myself.  Since you can’t see the cards the man in the car is holding, I went ahead and delved into my middle-school Pokemon memories of trading cards that, in reality, were worth the paper they were printed on.…

Somewhat Satirical picture captions

This is the assignment: The Big Caption. I’ve added the first two, frankly the more appropriate ones, the other are fairly tactless. I have a tendency to make off-color jokes, which some of the images put me in the frame of mind of.
*: This is one particular visual assignment…

The Big Caption

The second of my projects for the week, this one took some thought and time, but I thought it was painless and fun at the same time. Enjoy.…

The Big Caption

The first assignment I completed was The Big Caption, by taking a photo and adding my own comment/text to it and changing its meaning. I initially was not sure if my caption would be inappropriate, but after some discussion, I decided to submit the picture. For the record, I have…

Visual Design – Adorable

I love this photo and I though, what better way to show it off than to use the dogs cuteness. I used Adobe Photoshop once again for the text, but this time I decided to use a color that would blend in a bit with the dogs and also make…

Waiting for the Audio Assignments…

Last design assignment before we start what I think will be my favourite section of the class: audio.* It’s a mix of Tim Owen’s “The Big Caption” assignment and “The Big Hip Hop.” See, I did what I thought was “The Big Hip Hop” without reading through all the instructions.…

An attempt to create

I decided to try and create a picture for “The Big Caption” assignment posted by Tim Owens.  Well, I didn’t create the picture, I just copied one from this website.  But I ran into problems when it came time to insert a message on the image.  I was not sure…

The Big Caption

My “Big Picture” assignment. I have a particular love for this helicoper more than a disdain for Mrs. Palin. The helicopter here is a Russian made MI-8 which I flew in while working in Afghanistan. I was fortunate enough to log nearly 1300 hours as a passenger.
After some rapport …
