Week 24

Week 24

This week was pretty crazy in the MacLab. The new Hunters and Healers has been very helpful for people, but has caused some problems in some periods. I was hunted myself, but thanks to Megan Wilson I will not be getting a bad grade in this class. She helped me fix my blog and gave me some ideas about how I can make it better. I personally like the idea of the new Hunters and Healers, and it has helped people improve their blogs to the best of their potential. Near the end of this week I worked on another Polygonal art design. I decided to do a husky which I will post the complete design of next week on my home page. This week was pretty crazy in the beginning, but near the end it was pretty relaxing. Next week I hope there are more projects to be completed and I hope I will finish my polygonal art.

Week 23

Week 23

This week I continued working on the Theatre Revue quest. To the left is my final design for my poster. I really think I did a good job on it and I really hope there are more quests like it. I got the image for my background from here. Most of this poster is made up of vectors that I got from a few different websites. You can find them here. I have not worked much on MyTour, but instead continued watching Lynda.com and explored the website more. The week ended off with us knowing about the new and improved "Hunters and Healers," which would be put into action on Monday. 

Week 22

Week 22

During this week, we were introduced to the Theatre Revue quest. This quest required us to make a poster about Valhalla's play. In the poster we had a stage, sign, and other features to really make this poster pop. You can see my poster to the right. I compared/contrasted the old theatre style to the new theatre style. I have also been working on MyTour again. They did not like any of the logos we submitted before and we had to remake them. I didn't really get far on my work because it is not as easy as the previous requirements. Overall this week was full of work and I had fun working on the theatre poster. The image I used for this poster can be found here. The tickets vector used can be found here. The drama masks were a good addition to this poster. They can be found here. This is a fun project and I hope I will gain more ideas for this poster by next week. My goal is that next week I will finally complete my Valhalla Revue Poster.

Week 21

Week 21

Most of this week in the MacLab I have been watching logo making tutorials on Lynda.com. When I was not watching Lynda.com I was designing T-Shirts for Valhalla Cheer. These shirts were pretty fun to make and they required a lot of thinking to make everything right. We had to make two shirts, one for JV Cheer and one for V Cheer. Each shirt was a different color, but they each had the same design. Next week, I hope to learn more about logo design and shirt creation.

Week 20


Week 20
This week every student in the MacLab was required to buy a guild. I have already bought my guild a while ago so this does not apply to me. We were introduced to a quest called Medical Emergency. This was a quest about a math chart for the upcoming year. We had to redesign a math flow chart so that students could better understand the path they need to take through their math classes. This was a pretty difficult quest, as I needed to completely reconstruct the previous chart and make it into my own. This week we were also introduced to Lynda.com. This website has been pretty helpful as it provides many tutorials for different subjects. This week has been a week full of hard work and determination. 

Week 19

Week 19

This week we were introduced to a few new quests. These quests include Mozart's Requiem, Alma Mater, and the Spring Poster. This week I mainly worked on the Mozart's Requiem quest. This was a quest designed for Mr. Infantino and his music department. It was supposed to consist of a dark theme due to the death of Mozart. This week was pretty interesting and I hope to do more quests like Mozart's Requiem

Week 18




Week 18

This week was the week of the finals. All we did this week was answer a quick survey about the MacLab and overall it was not that exciting. Next week I hope to get more projects to work on and to finish them as best I can.

Week 17


Week 17

This semester is nearing its end. We have about a week left of work before we prepare for finals. This week we mainly worked on T-Shirts for our theatre. These shirts involved working on kerning with type and having correct logo and quote placement. The shirts were fun to make, but were also pretty time consuming as it was difficult thinking of how to place certain things in certain places. We also worked on shirts for AVID. AVID means Advancement Via Individual Determination. It is a class about how to plan for your college career. AVID helps you plan for college and help your get to your college goal. This week was interesting as it was my first time designing shirts and it was a challenge. I hope to have more weeks like this, but next time I will have an idea how to do it and I know I will enjoy it. 

Week 16

Week 16 

During this week we had many changes that occurred in the MacLab. The first major change was the removal of the weekly paychecks that team usually get at the end of the week. I really enjoyed having the weekly paychecks, but the new system we have in place is a good replacement. It is called daily bread, which can be found here.  The daily bread are rewards that we get at the end of working all period. When we purchase our daily bread we receive 30 gold and 60 experience. It may not seem like a lot, but over time it will rack up and we will gain plenty of gold and experience.  The main thing I worked on this week was the Revival Repair and Sonoma State Club Volleyball logo. These were fun quest, and they were revolved around making logos for clients that are in need of them. The first being a phone repair company called Revival Repair, and Sonoma State University. In conclusion, this week was pretty productive.

Week 15

Week 15

This week was pretty enjoyable. I had a lot of fun doing work for real world clients and loved making new logos for them. I also designed a new blog logo that expresses how much I really enjoy working in the MacLab. The most fun project that I did this week had to be Toni's Toys. Toni's toys was a logo we had to design that resembled the Toy Story theme. You can see my completed version to the left. Overall this week was very entertaining and very fun. 

Week 14

Week 14


This week was pretty fun due to the fact that we got to work with code. We went on many coding websites including CodeCombat and this coding game website. I learned some basic coding skills during this week and I now have an idea of how coding looks like and how it functions. Overall, this week was fun and I learned a lot from it.

Week 13



Week 13

This week here in the MacLab was another one of those interesting weeks. We have actually moved our blogs to a new blogging website called Blogger. This blog website is a lot less simple than our previous one on Wordpress. It has a brand new layout and format that I am not fully used to. On the other hand Blogger gives us access to more possibilities and I am getting more used to using it every day. Thats really all that happened this week, but I know there will be a lot more happening very soon in the MacLab
