MP3, Cellphone/alarm clock design

Hi everyone,This assignment  I found was fun yet challenging because was had to incorporate many different aspects of design and technology into one piece. My thought while trying to create this was the fact that technology is ever changing and we are becoming more and more dependent on out cellphones and mp3 players rather than home or pay phones, cassette or CD players. When I wake up for school in the mornings I hate having to go to different locations to pick up my cell phone and MP3 player so I decided to create a doc that can hold both of these items. The best place for me would be on my night-stand by my alarm clock which wakes me up in the morning. this dock would be relatively cheap considering that alrmmp3phone-doc.JPG

Web page

Hey everyone. We are all in process with our final project but I’m stuck on something. I am a media major and i do want to continue working with graphic design. However, I do creative writing as in poetry and songs, computer designs, drawing, fashion design, graffiti (like bubble letters), picture editing, and like visual advertising/displays (blah blah blah). Now i feel as if i shouldn’t be putting everything on there because its a lot of information. I want to have a focus but i’m not to sure what to focus on since i enjoy doing all of them. I will post up some of my work and i would really appreciate some feedback on what i should highlight and what to exclude. HELP ME PLEASE!!!

The Cloisters Museum

The Cloisters is one of my favorite spots in Manhattan. It’s a museum cobbled together of monk’s cloisters, tapestries, illuminated manuscripts and so much more, all brought over piece by piece from Europe.

Some Ideas !!

I received these images by e-mail and I thought it might be useful and inspiring. Unfortunately, the name of the designer/s wasn’t mentioned.


 Remember, It wasn’t my idea!


This one is even worse, but look how he was able to combine two pictures perfectly! you know this is not real, don’t u?



If you think these are regular wholes in the street, think again!


You want to know what this is?


This is a new Speed limiting device !!

Some inspiring Designes


 I’ve travelled overseas and I found this poster. It was for a book festival and the message was “let us read” which is obviously written on the poster in English and Arabic . If you can notice, even if u can’t read Arabic letters the Arabic font has a very similar design to the the English font. The tree is made with drawing of books, pens and berds. I think the birds are there just to make more natural look for the tree. And maybe it is there to symbolize the message that needs to be delivered.



This picture speaks of it’s self. I found it funny and interesting. This restourant used the same design as “Hardees” and replaced the star with a tree! it may not look like it, but ‘Yes’ it is a tree. You may wonder, why is it a tree? the answer is simply that the restourant is called “Lebanese” and the lebanese flag has a tree on it. Here you can see it below.



I found this “car renting company” add and I think it’s simple and eye catching. The arrow key has no symbolic meaning. It was only ment to point to the pictures below. And yet I think it is interesting to see a car key shaped that way.


This is a sign for a tea house store. It remind me of the discussion we had regarding the font (the text) and it’s relation to the place that it referes to. If you notice, the letters are taking the form of a cup! look carefully at the letter “c” for example and you will see a half cup. it is a tea house after all. Good design in my openion.


I didn’t know what this poster was for but I thought it was creative. I think it works the best as an add for a makeup brand. It is just a way to play around with images and make a combination between natural and artificial materials.
