Consider a current, cultural issue that is of interest to you. Describe the media’s influence on that cultural issue or any related cultural dynamics. You may want to think about how much the media influence that dynamic and/or how much the cultural issue influences the media.
Select and arrange typographic and graphic (no photographic or illustrative) visual elements to express opposite, yet parallel, meanings, both visually as well as verbally, for two antonyms. All steps are highly unique to your specific project, therefore problem-solving and critical thinking skills are necessary.
Please view LinkedIn Learning: “Graphic Design Foundations: Typography” with Ina Saltz and “Learning Graphic Design: Set Perfect Text” with John McWade before starting this assignment.
List eight pairs of antonyms (word opposites), like “hot” and “cold,” “tall” and “short,” or “up” and “down,” in a word processing document. Be creative in your choice of antonyms; list unexpected ones for a more impactful portfolio project.
Select the three strongest antonym pairs to develop.
Make a new document in any software program that enables you to work with type (Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, etc.).
Arrange each antonym pair on three separate pages.
Transform, arrange and/or distort the words to express their meanings visually. Use opposite (but parallel) visual language to express the meaning of both words.
Whatever you do to one word to express its meaning visually (changes in scale, color, position, etc.), you must apply the opposite visual treatment to its antonym to express opposite meaning, without introducing treatments not applied to the first word—this is known as parallelism.
Remember, photographs and illustrations are not allowed, but please use type, backgrounds, colors, gradients and effects (like drop shadows).
You may space, scale, rotate, shear, cut and reposition the typographic elements. This step is highly unique to your specific project, therefore problem-solving and critical thinking skills are necessary.
I’ve created two videos to help you understand this assignment. Please pick more challenging antonyms than the ones I’m demonstrating. This video demonstrates Compress/Expand and Increase/Decrease in Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint:

This video demonstrates Tall/Short, Hot/Cold and Big/Little in Adobe Illustrator, but the point is I’m demonstrating my thought processes for all the combinations:

Save your files, and export .JPGs or .PDFs. My computer might not have the same fonts as the ones installed on your computer, therefore if you send me a native Microsoft file, I might not see the same image as you’re seeing. Post your first-publish solutions of the list of 8 antonyms and the design of the 3 selected pairs in the Module 3 Discussion Forum (required!) for reciprocal, constructive feedback from classmates and instructor.
Incorporate any changes suggested by your classmates if you feel it will improve your work, and post a revised publish in the Module 4 Discussion Forum, for more reciprocal, constructive feedback.
Incorporate any last-minute changes before uploading your final revisions to the Assignment 2 submission button (click “Submit Assignment” above).
Can you make at least 285 words? 🙂
- I need the essay to be under 770 words in total.
– Please also check for plagiarism because the last time, my essay got that I ordered here got flagged for plagiarism.
– I also need the referencing to be APA 7th style please.
Write at least one to three paragraphs describing your understanding of Media Literacy and Visual Communication. Based on the contents of this module, what are your thoughts about the subject matter?
This is a two part paper.
The directions to the first and the second is below.
In a paper of approximately 700 words, please respond to the prompt below. The article about Infowars that is in this module includes definitions of filter bubbles and echo chambers, as well as distinctions between misinformation and disinformation, so you should make use of that article and other materials in the module in your response.
This module dealt with the spread of misinformation and disinformation and, in the case of Alex Jones, the consequences of spreading misinformation and disinformation. All of us have encountered misinformation on social media. What are some examples of misinformation or disinformation that you have encountered on social media and how have you reacted to this type of content? Where has this content been found, and what do you know about the credibility of the source? Please be specific with your examples. Then, consider your own presence and interactions on social media. To what degree are you aware of your own filter bubble, and what is it (in other words, what are your sources of information and how might that impact your filter bubble)? Do you think that you are susceptible to the operation of an echo chamber on social media? Why or why not? Do you take actions to avoid an echo chamber? If so, what are they? If not, what could you do?
2.) For your discussion board, please make your initial post (approximately 250 words) a response to ONE of the prompts below:
To what degree should social media companies be considered responsible for the content that circulates on their platforms?
Are the removal of pages or banning accounts on social media platforms instances of censorship? Does it matter that they are owned by private companies with self-determined user policies?
For the title of your post, please use "Responsibility" if you are responding to the first prompt and "Censorship" if you are responding to the second one–this will help folks who are responding to you know which prompt you used.
This should be posted by midnight on Wednesday.
Then, by midnight on Sunday, respond to at least two of your peers in posts of approximately 200 words each–again, though, we would love this to be more of a back and forth and more discussion-like, so we encourage you to both reply to people who respond to your posts and respond to more than two posts.
