please see below 4 prompts for each journal reflections.
1. BEYONG THE SCREEN: We often think of UCD as something that is primarily applied to web-based interfaces. Describe an example of a product or service that is not web-based. This can be something that is more experiential, something that is a physical/embodied product, or something multichannel. What makes it compelling/engaging? Why do you choose to use this service? What could make it better?
2. UC SKETCHING: If you currently sketch, how might you modify your process to engage in more UCD sketching? Or, how would you apply Buxton’s rules for sketching to your current method?
If you do not currently sketch, how might you apply the rules and create your own method to further explore sketching as a skill you develop?
please refer to the buxton’s rules of sketching, attached file.
3. UCD MINDSET ENVIRONMENT: Have you worked in a collaborative environment in the past where an empathic UCD mindset was employed? If so, how was it used and what were the outcomes? Or, think of an example when a UCD mindset might have been applied to achieve better outcomes?

4. COMMUNICATING UCD: the world of human-centered design pulls together many different groups into the process of creation – it’s never just a team of designers making decisions unilaterally (well, sometimes it is, but that doesn’t make it okay).
A good practitioner of UCD works to be able to speak the language of different parties: visual design, interaction design, development and programming, sound, video, motion, business and more. It’s a long list:
What areas do you feel confident communicating within?
Which do you feel the least confident in?
How might you address your lower confidence areas?

Describe the process for performing advanced selection using masks, channels, refine edge, and defringing.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE PHOTOSHOP OR THE ABILITY TO SEND .PSD FILE DO NOT EXCEPT THIS TASK. YOU MAY HAVE TO EMAIL THE .PSD IF YOU CANNOT UPLOAD IT.
Instructions: Find an old family photo to restore (or a photo of a place that is special to you), enhance the photo with at least five to seven different elements that you’ve learned, and create a magazine cover page using the photos with some creative ideas behind it. Utilize at least one other photo for a background. You will upload three photos minimum, the original family photo, background photo and the final cover page.
Once this is completed, you will complete a minimum of a two-page write up (minimum of 500-750 words, not including Title Page or Reference Page): 12 font Times New Roman, double spaced paper in APA Style format, using at least two references to describe the following: Submit your paper in Word format only.
Purpose of the magazine. You must identify a valid purpose as if this magazine will be published for the public.
Identify five to seven tools used and any challenges encountered.
Describe the layers applied and why selected.
Examine the differences, the benefits and the limitations of the different image file types.
Discuss the purpose and usage of smart objects, layers and vectors in editing, also differentiate between a raster image and a vector image; also detail the layer concepts of hiding, linking, and setting layer styles.
Outline the different processes to enhance images including sharpness, color, contrast, hue, brightness and resolution.
Evaluate the image processing capabilities such as feathering, filtering and burning.
Describe the process for performing advanced selection using masks, channels, refine edge, and defringing.
Detail the capabilities of Adobe Photoshop as a tool for editing and restoring digital images, also describe the process for enhance digital images by manipulating sharpness, color, contrast, hue, brightness and resolution.
Submission Instructions: Submit the original photo, background photo, final cover page and write up in APA format in the assignment area (Submit your paper in Word format only). You may need to reduce the file size of the images if the file is over 25 MB. Do this by reducing the PPI for the image. Images may be in .JPG or .PNG format. Submission of your .PSD on this assignment is at the discretion of your instructor

Research reports will include: (see templates on canvas)

Students will produce a PDF (with attention to layout, aesthetics and design).
Research reports will include: (see templates on canvas)
A cover page with students names
A well-sourced bibliography
A clear definition of the design problem (the ‘what’).
A Methodology (‘the how’) -which will include Primary research, Secondary research, Observational research, Culture audit, interviews, probes and so on.
Analysis: an explanation of the research findings.
At least 2 qualitative and/or quantitative research methods. Clearly stated why they were used.
Quotes from user groups/survey participants.
Illustrations/infographics that convey the meaning of the data/research.
Quotes from user groups/survey participants.
Synthesis: the response to the design problem and a proposal.
Future research potential or actionable paths forward based upon the findings.
A summary of the response to the design problem.
Future research potential or actionable paths forward based upon the findings.
So Im attaching a few documents that can help you. So this project is pretty much how our group feels that the U.S currency are not designed for individuals who are blind/ visually impaired and while other countries had adapted ways to help people with those special needs.
Our professor would like for us to include a story into the report from an interview. So I interviewed Michelle from Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta Miami Branch and she pretty much told me that as we speak they are rumbling around that our currency will be getting a revamped to accommodate those who are blind/visually impaired. So at least it will back up the research.

Please see Evaluation of Discussion Posts for instructions and expectations.
Language usage and writing for accessibility can be an afterthought when there are so many other things to consider about accessible design. Search for your favourite movie or TV show on IMDb and read the written summary. Using the techniques discussed in the RGD’s AccessAbility 2 (on pages 13 and 14), rewrite the complex summary into plain language in as few words as possible, preserving the original intention of the summary. (Please provide a link to the IMDb page in your post.)
OR
What were the key takeaways in the podcast episode about accessible and inclusive graphic design with Josh Skinner? What stuck with you and/or what tips and tricks will you take with you as you move through this course and beyond?
OR
Accessible typography is incredibly important, as text and letterforms are often the ways we consume, understand and interpret the world around us. Find 5 examples ‘in the wild’ (taking pictures of type in your neighbourhood) of type that is either incredibly accessible or incredibly inaccessible and discuss each one. Please connect theory described in the Access Ability 2 reading to your real-life examples of accessible and/or inaccessible type.
OR
It’s been said that “accessible design is good design”. Do you agree or disagree? Please expand on your thoughts providing relevant examples to support your position.

Review of magazines

ASSIGNMENT ONE: EDITORIAL DESIGN PAPER (2.5%)
REVIEW OF MAGAZINES
300 words: include figures and captions. References on a separate page.
FIRST PARAGRAPH: explain your findings: What did you realise? How many layout designs are there in an editorial design? Is the table of content connected to the style/structure/design/identity of the overall books? Page numbering, table of content? Cover and paper quality of the book/magazine?
SECOND PARAGRAPH: Typographic Analysis: Take pictures of typographic inconsistencies and include in the paper as figures (with captions). Explain font choices, are they connected to the book design? Serif or San-serif? Readability experience? Is it boring? Visually appealing to the eye? Font sizes, leading, hierarchy on cover and inner pages.
the two magazine I choose is Dior No. 36 and rouge No.975
