This week we started, yet again, another project. We got in groups and we had to agree on a book to read and do our project with. We got our own individual roles, which will help us learn how to work together using our own different strengths.
During these past few days we worked on reading our book, while looking at it in different points of view, depending on what our individual role is. As the graphic designer my job is to look at the setting of the book, and to think about how to make a visually appealing website that goes along with the book. My job as the graphic designer is to design a website that really gives the audience the feeling they would get from reading the book we chose, which was The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho.
So far all we have done for this project chose our groups, novels, and begin reading and note taking. The note taking is going to be different from what we have done in the past, because it is picture note taking. We take pictures of things that stand out to us in the novel, and write notes on them. This can help us to keep our thoughts organized and can help when it comes to actually putting our project together. with our different roles. So we can see specific part of the book that will help us do our part of the project.
