Assignment Bank Project 1:
For this particular assignment I let my squirrel-like attention span lead the way. While scrolling though the “Fanfic Assignments” a Bob’s Burger’s writing prompt caught my attention . As Bob’s Burgers is one of my favorite shows so I couldn’t resist that particular writing activity, and really, who doesn’t love a good erotic Friend Fiction? Despite my lack of thinking it through, I quickly realized I had made the right choice by selecting that prompt because I had a hoot combining two of my favorite 80’s television shows. What follows below is the background information for my Fanfiction- think of it like the summary printed on the back cover of a book. By keeping it intentionally vague I hope my readers will be able to fill in the remaining story line with their own imagination. Happy reading!

Assignment Bank Project 2:
Okay, I have a confession to make…I am a CDS major with next to no digital skills. If I am being completely honest I am just the creative type. A few semesters ago I took a photoshop/digital art class and I struggled with BIG time. I like direction, I like clear guidelines, I frankly like being told what to do so when I am give vague directions that are intended to spark creativity I tend to freak the hell out. PHEW, now that that is off my chest I hope you understand that what you are about to witness below is not my finest work but I wanted to dust off my Adobe Illustrator skills and see what I could work out. So without further ado I present to you…. America Runs on Starbucks.
Assignment Bank Project #3:
To makeup for the monstrosity that is the above logo mashup I decided to dabble in a project I felt much more comfortable with but for a twist I decided to use a program I had never used before. For project 3 I opted to design and event poster under the Design Assignments section. To tie it to the 80’s theme we are using for the semester I decided to promote a fake tour of 80’s cover bands – this was fun because the names are a riot! Honestly, I wish this event was real because it sounds like a great deal of fun.
