Music In the City

Assignment: One Story/ Four Items 3 Stars

Assignment Description: “This idea was first suggested by Tom Woodward and has been a long standing popular ds106 assignment. The assignment is to reduce a movie, story, or event into its basic elements, then take those visuals and reduce them further to simple icons, four of them. Write your blog post up but do not give away the answer, let people guess! The challenge is to find the icons that suggest the story, but do not make it so easy. For icons a great resource is The Noun Project.”

Rhapsody: All though this isn’t a very popular movie, it is one of my favorites of all time. To give a few hints, the music note stand for the love of two people formed through the love of their music. The Empire State Building Logo represents that the story takes place in NYC. The Guitar belongs to the main character (even though it wasn’t his to start!) Lastly, the hand represents a composer, and conductor. If you can figure it out, please comment below! If not, I will comment back with the answer.  Good Luck!

Process, annotated: I had a hard time figuring out which movie I would be able to summarize in 4 symbols. Movies seem way more complex than just a few icons. The site, The Noun Project, that was provided by the assignment was very helpful in finding icons, and it was incredibly easy. Once again, I used the BeFunky site to put the picture together. I am starting to love this site! It seems that any simple photoshop things that I need to do, I can use this site. I would highly recommend it for all of these design assignments. Overall, this assignment wasn’t too hard, it just took the most time to think of my idea.
