Flooding

For my design assignment this week I had to create a business card that was simple yet detailed.  The assignment was worth four stars.

I followed one of the links that it suggested to use for designing a logo. Once I got there it asked what the name of the company was and what type of company. I thought it would be funny since my last name is Flood do make the company a water provider.

The next part was deciding what type of card I wanted. I could choose from several types; but ended up choosing a logo based card as it would be something to be remembered by and also would serve as an attention grabber. I chose a water pump as it fit the water provider theme well. It was simple yet, got its message across.

The website then gave me two fonts and asked me to pick which was better. They did this several times in a row. At the end the website then generated a number of options for me to choose from in various fonts and styles. I choose this style as it was simple as was requested by the prompt but it was also detailed. The font was far from plan. Aswell, the water pump served to spice up the card.

  1. I really like the design you ended up with. One thing that I would suggest is to make sure that you copy edit your posts because this one does have some issues.

  2. I know water service is not as exciting as kittens with laser-beams, but I felt like this post could be more lively with some added details. I’ve provided grammar and wording suggestions in parentheses and some big picture questions at the end to give you some ideas for revision.

    http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/create-a-logo-that-is-simple-but-detailed/. (Try using a hyperlink on the word “assignment” so you don’t have to write out the whole url.) The assignment was worth four stars. (Integrate this into your first sentence.)

    > I followed one of the links (What was the link? What is the name of the website it recommended?) that it (what is “it”) suggested to use for designing a logo. Once I got there it (The website?) asked what the name of the company was and what type of company (should be rewritten “what the name and type of the company were”). I thought it would be funny since my last name is Flood do (“to”) make the company a water provider.

    > The Next (improper capitalization) part was deciding what type of card I wanted. I could choose from several types but ended up choosing a logo based (should be hyphenated) card as it would be something to be remembered by and also would serve as an attention grabber. I choose (“chose”) a water pump as it fit the water provider theme well. It was simple (missing comma) yet it (delete “it”) got its message across.

    > The website then gave me two fonts and asked me to pick which was better. They did this several times in a row. At the end the website then generated a number of (use a word like “some” or “many” instead) options for me to choose from in various fonts and styles. I choose (“chose”) this style as it was simple as was requested by the prompt (missing comma) but it was also detailed. The font was far from plan(“plain”). Aswell (two words), the water pump served to spice up the card. (This last sentence feels out of place, since you already talked about the pump above and have been focusing on the text in this paragraph.)

    A few big-picture questions:
    * What was the connection to your alternate history where the Bolshevik uprising never occurred in Russia?
    * What is “the story behind the story”?
    * Could you embed your work via Instagram?
    * Could you add some screen-shots to the how-to section of this post?
