Reflection Slide

After presenting my previous slide, I found that there were pictures with sharp lines, and it seemed a bit too cluttered. Because of my critique, I decided to take out the pictures with sharp lines and stick with just inserting clip art. I'm happier with the way my slide looks now since it has been improved. Now, it's a lot simpler and seems cleaner.

Julia Hood: Second Slide and Reflection

I learned that you don´t have to write everything out and you have to pay attention to the smallest details because they give an uneasy feeling if they´re messed up. I put all of these things because they mean a little bit to me and they were all a part of my identity as a person.

For my reflection side I added a shade to my pictures to make that black and white theme. I learned not to overlap my title with my pictures so i moved my title over a little. From the comments i had i learned about a lot about theme and cramping pictures together.

  • I learned that you need to relate your slide to everything on the slide.
  •        Why did you make the changes you made to the slide?
  • I made it more simple because I had too much ridiculous  information.

Updated Me Magazine Slide, Lucien Hearn

Updated Me Magazine silde
In my updated Me Magazine Slide, I removed two images, and made the Thailand flag and the woman more prominent. In addition to that, I more so centered the text, and made the slide color the (relatively) same color as the woman's background, a salmon color. I made it seem like the two images' foundations are both aligned, but the bird is popping out, making the image seem like it pops. I'm very proud of this product.

Reflection Slide

I learned that kerning and not showing the most important elements in a photo can make a slide confusing and make the viewer uncomfortable. I moved the photos, so that they're facing upward and my face isn't cut off and I spaced out the letters to prevent kerning.

Slide #2 - Nicolella

I received my criticism, and I made my changes I thought made most sense. I created the slide into more of a collage, as that was one of my main comments. I fixed my words and the colors, making them properly fit and stand out more. The pictures became bigger, to use more of the space up and fixed anything else I had to. I learned a lot from doing this activity, I learned how to properly use colors and the shapes of the photos. I also learned the different aspects of design, and how much it actually matters with presenting and business matters.

Slide #2 by Nick Ryan


From doing this slide, I learned a lot of things. I learned that symmetry, spacing, and wording is the key to a good slide. I also learned about the different tools designers use when creating billboards, like the rule of thirds, making the words big, contrasting the words and the background, and a lot more. I made changes to my first slide presentation. I changed the font, cleaned up the spacing, and got rid of the underlines. I changed the font because I wanted it to be interesting to my viewers and so I put it in Acme font. I cleaned up the spacing because it was sloppy. Each line seemed too close to each other and some of the letters touched the other words. Finally, I got rid of the underlines because it made the slide look messy and it touched the letters below it. These were the things I learned about in making this slide and these were the changes I made to my slide.

I learned from the slide that the one I had was entirely too crowded and that made it look sloppy. I changed the slide so that it could send a strong message but not be crowded at the same time.

Me Slide #2

I learned that the slide is not only about your academic personality but also what defines you, so I removed everything I had and I made a completely new slide with the things that represent who I am and without explaining the slide to people they will know.
I add my favorite game: Clash Of Clans, a graffiti that shows my artistic side, soccer balls that represent my favorite sport, and finally the Illuminati logo.

Me Slide #2, M.Pokora

Me Slide
From the critique I learned a lot about design and how every object and color affect your slide. I made the change of my face. Having a floating head was a bad idea so now i added shoulders and chest with better lightning. I also changed my title from me magazine to "Who Am I?" Since my last title wasn't really thought through and didn't go with the information I had on my slide. I also added more words that define me too, instead of keeping just 3. I'm overall happy with this new slide and think it has improved from the previous one.

Media Fluency#2, To

     I learned a lot from the critiques of my media slide. I made the changes that I made to my slide because my slide was not viewer friendly because I made the pictures all even and boring and that I changed my words because they didn't standout and the changes will make my slide better. I learned that I should change my words and make it into a collage. I used contrast colors like blue and orange because the colors stand out more. I made all the pictures different sizes. I also added two different fonts for my name and what I like to do because they are different.

Media Fluency Part 2- Seng, Meymey

1. From the critique of my slide, I have learned many things from my peers. One of the things that I learned was that I should have stuck to my collage theme fully, instead of committing to it half way. What this means is that on one side of my slide I had two pictures, while the other side had three. Another thing that I learned was that I should change around the font to make the "MEy" part look less distracting to the eye. The third thing that I learned was that while presenting, I should have known more about the background of why the color scheme mattered. 

2. The changes that I made to this slide was adding another picture on the left end of the slide. This allowed my slide to have an even amount of pictures on both sides. I wanted to stick to my collage theme, although I made the choice of not the adding pictures to the top and bottom spots in the slide. This is because those are small spots and I do not want to cram my slide, instead, I want to make it simple. Another change that I made to this slide was changing the font of "All About MEy" from Lato to Indie Flower. I made the font to look more hand, which will hopefully make the odd capitalization more appealing to the eye. I decided to make these changes to better my slide for everyone to see.

Finalized Slide

1. What I learned from the critique of my slide was that simplicity is sometimes better then making something more complicated, and since my slide was very simple they enjoyed that aspect of it, so I decided to keep it that way. Something I did learn while presenting though was that I should pick a different color soccer ball, or one that would not blend in with the background since it was hard to see. One more thing that I was told to change was the way my word were placed. I was told to make them outline the soccer ball, so that it would look nicer.

2. The reason why I decided to make the soccer ball have a black outline is again, so that it would not blend into the background. The reason why I decided to make the words that describe me outline the soccer ball was to make it more aesthetically pleasing.

When the critique process was taking place, I had a lot of good comments about my slide and only a few minor adjustments to be made. By being told these corrections, I learned how to make my slide look more believable that a professional did it and how to make kids and adults look at the slide. One of the suggestions was for me to make sure that my mickey mouse wasn't in the way of one of the flags, because the castle is just as important of the idea of Disney as mickey mouse is. The next thing I did was brighten the picture a little bit, to make the slide look more excited and colorful. Once I did that, it made the slide look like it was having fun and it wants to be seen by many people. The last thing I did was that I fixed Mickey Mouse's bow ties. I was told before that the Mickey Mouse heads were a good addition to the slide, so I wanted to make them well noticed. I played around with the shapes and I found a circle and put it onto the bow tie to add just a bit more color to the Mickey Mouse head.

I wanted to keep my message the same but make it more clear and simple. I basically started over entirely because I felt that the initial idea got lost in the creation of my previous slide. This is why I chose a different background. I wanted to use something that was more related to the message. The road that leads into the sunlight works because though one may not always know what lies ahead they should always keep moving. I made the message move across the road because I thought that it was more eye catching. The color scheme works better together. And though there's a lot less on the page the slide works better.

Me slide#2 and Reflection

I learned that my slide wasn't really creative enough. I wanted it to be eye catching to the viewer. I didn't want viewers to read a bunch of information. I made these changes to my slide because, I included so many pictures and it would probably hurt the human eye because there is so much going on.

Reflection Tech "Me Mag" Slide!

After receiving the constructive criticism from my classmates and Ms.Hull I came to a few realizations. The challenge of the project is to be clear what I'm generally about in a very clear concise message be it through images and/or text. As well a big part in this is the color scheme making sure that everything flows together and is consistant so that  the product is both eye catching and that the audience focuses on the message without imperfections serving as distractions. I also learned that putting in an original piece can also help a lot too. As well the background image also has to follow the rules of design too and should be symetrical.

I basically started over completly. I decided that the first thing to address is simplicity so I made the background black.  Then I addressed my priorities in the billboard and went from there. For my unique piece I chose my name and added it with a priority:photography, so I edited and cut out my name from a photo . Then I edited and cropped out four other symbols representing multiple priorities and placed them where it seemed appropriate to fill in the space.

Final Slide Design

1. What I learned from the critique of my slide was that my old slide didn't look clean or nice because the pictures weren't aligned. The slide had spots of my background everywhere so I had to cover those up. They also said that I should give the background a color so it can blend into the pictures. I also make the words bigger and aligned it directly in the middle of the slide. They also gave me recommendations for anime pictures to add. 

2. I agreed that the slide had some problems. The aligned of everything was so off and looked very sloppy. I also agreed when they said that the color around my name was bland so I changed the color to make it look nice.

Reflection and Second Slide

For my first slide, the majority of critiques I received was mainly about how I had too much going on in one thing. People said that I should've stuck with only a few pictures or just go ahead and make a collage. People also said that having photos of myself was redundant, since I was presenting.

For my second slide, I decided to just use one picture of my favorite singer, Lana Del Rey. She has inspired me to do a lot and I wouldn't be the person that I am today without her. I decided to put words that described me on the right side of my slide instead of all around because they would be too distracting. I also decided to stick with a black and whit theme, since it's really simplistic, yet interesting. I didn't use a default template as my background because they lack originality. Instead I made the entire background black and out in a black and white photo and made my words a white font.

The reason for the words on my slide is because they are all things that represent me. I am all of the things that are posted on my slide.

1. While I received feedback from the class I realized the most minor details can completely change the opinion of someone, about your slide.
2. The main thing I changed with my slide was the text size and the spacing between the letters. I made the font a bit smaller and I made the phrase one line shorter. I also cropped my image to block out a object in my image that was taking away from the main focus of the picture.

Nile Ward Reflection and Second Slide

After taking in the critique, I learned that having a slide full of pictures is distracting to some, so I decided to use a picture with a plain background, and then, because the original solid white background hurt my eyes, and the eyes of others, against the gradient grey/black background, I took out that background all together.  This will offer more focus on the clean, sparkly car instead of the background of my previous image. The transparent image will also allow for more empty "breathing" space, so you don't only see the background with the lawns and driveways and the hose... I also received critique on the call-to-action font, which was dark and hard to see before. In this slide, I used a brighter font for my call-to-action, so it was visible against the dark background. I removed the testimonial and moved the call-to-action up where it would be more visible. The blue font also hints at the fact that this slide is about car detailing. Blue was a cool color, and car detailing is a "cool" activity. The blue could also mean water, and car detailing uses water, too.
