The most interesting part of this reading was seeing all the different ways designers use to grab attention. It also pointed out that just because the object may grab attention it doesn't necessarily get to the point of the product. One of the ways of grabbing attention that seems the most simple but useful is the alternative shapes of your media, such as posters. This is one idea that I hope to be able to use in future projects.

On this site i found the most examples to generate ideas off of and determine what direction I wanted to take my project.
This reading was very informative. The beginning of the reading gave me a lot better look into the history of the science of color theory. It was very interesting to have that point of view to compare to after years of just looking at it from an artist's stand point. The color indexes toward the end were also interesting and helpful. Those may come in handy some day.
One of the things that I am hoping to take from this class is to have a more solid grasp on what Graphic Design is. I would also like to find a process that will be suit my style of working.
