I am aware that, as a blogger, I have a HUGE digital footprint, as I use various social media sites and have various emails for my personal and professional life. I have no idea how I am supposed to change this, because it does play a big role in my life, and I think the only thing I can do is try keeping my identity safe by properly reading security agreements and updates.
After hearing some of the stories of my classmates and their experiences with online mishaps, I think a person's identity is 100% important, and keeping it safe is really important online. While I think using online platforms looking for work is fine, I think we should keep our cards closed, even if we know someone we're adding online, because the information could fall in the wrong hands.
For my assignment, I am doing an album cover for Coeur de Pirate's lead single off her newest album Rose entitle Carry On (French title: Oublie Moi).
When I was brainstorming what I was supposed to do for the assignment, I was actually listening to the song, and knew right away I wanted to do an album cover for it. The picture above right now is just a background. I chose this read/pinkish colour to symbolize heart/love, and the streaks represent the heart ache and confusion from the song. I know it's still a base, but I am still experimenting with textures for the streaks going across; it's sort of a nod to the actual album cover, were there is an overlay of different water colours. It's a work in progress, but I recently just scanned my hand drawn logo onto my USB, and I can't wait to add it on and put the typography so it would stop looking so plain.
