Some issues that I ran into when I encountered WordPress was that it wasn’t representative of Me. I wanted viewers to to see a piece of me when they looked on my page. It took me around 48 hours to get my site to look presentable as well as something I’m proud of. As a solution I asked some of my peers for tips on how to change the way mine looked, I also looked up other people’s word presses to make sure I wasn’t unknowingly plagiarizing. I now feel confident of my own WordPress. I feel that nobody is ever done editing their WordPress due to the fact that things are always changing, as well as making new pieces of art.
For my design process I decided to do research about personal survival guides that already exist to make sure I’m neither copying the format or the layout. What I found during this process is that majority of the psg’s look fairly similar, so I saved a couple images to make sure I didn’t fall into that familiar category. I also have a mood board above for inspiration of certain aspects I’d like to try out on my own So I can incorporate it into my Personal Survival Guide.
After reflecting on my daily schedule, I’ve realized that I spend too much time watching tv shows and movies. I lose track of time which results in my having to stay up later at night to finish my work. I actually began to change my habits this past Friday. I made myself a new rule that i can only watch a single show for every 3 assignments I get done and published, I have a friend enforcing the rule so i don’t go back on my rule.
From my knowledge of design processes, I have gathered that there different design processes. The basic gist of it is that it is a series of steps that people follow when they are trying to solve a problem. My personal process of designing is to do a bunch of thumbnail sketches to get an idea of what I want, then I do a few rough sketches until I know exactly what I want to do and how, after I finish that I move on the the final piece. I don’t think I want to nor do I feel I need to change my work process, it’s working for me fine so far.
