In Design class, we are going to analyze a poster, advertisement or PSA today. Please choose something to analyze, insert it in your blog, and analyze it!

I chose this graphic because the colors really stood out to me. They are very bright and show good contrast. The title adopt me with the cute puppy face direct the viewers’ eyes to this first. Then some one can read the smaller text to find out more information. I think the blue text on the bottom with proximity to the parts that they relate to are important and break up all the text.
The designer only used three different types of fonts and she used a hierarchy of font size to show importance in the text. This poster could be easily read from far away to catch people’s attention.
After a Typhoon Day we had a great start to Japan Days with Sushi Making in Design class and Mochi Pounding in Japanese class.
Here are the pictures from the makizushi (nori maki) session:

Today I want you to think about what a blog is…
What makes a good blog?
I want you to inquire and analyze a few blogs. You can use other examples if you’d like. Here are a few:
Kotaku – A gaming and news blog
World War II Today – a really interesting blog that posts 70 years ago
Shutterbean – Food, Photography and Life
Spoon and Tamago – Japanese, Art, Design and Culture
The Post Game – Sports NewsBlog
Yowayowa Camera Woman Diary – one of my favorite Photography blogs, but she hasn’t posted in years… sigh.
Bake at 350 – Sweets!
Student Blogs: Bailey, Koko
What are elements of good blogs?
Now I want you to turn your direction to your own blog.
What does it say about you as a person? As a learner? Are you proud of your blog?
Do you follow the CA Publishing Protocols?
