So, I made a GIF. It was actually pretty easy! I filmed something on my phone, put it on desktop, and used a sceen recorder app I’d downloaded a while back.
After talking so much about Zoom Ettiquette and being perceived and the like, I had plenty to work with.
Ta-da! His name is Bandit, by the way.
And here’s his sister, Onyx, because she deserves love, too. She’s the featured image today!
Until next time!
A very homo gif for my girlfriend
I initially had no idea how to make a gif, but Giphy.com made it fairly simple. I wanted to create something that represented how I am feeling given that Black Friday is in 3 DAYS and will likely be an absolute nightmare for me as a retail worker.
I wanted to make something that looked sort of ominous while still being funny, which is why I used a sort of blurred filter and static sort of effect on the words. The original clip is from Glee, and I accessed the clip from here.
I have never made a GIF before so I had to do some research when doing this assignment. I decided to compile some food I had on my last trip to Taiwan and Japan before the pandemic hit.
Here are the steps to how I made my first GIF:
- found a few clips of food that had the ‘live’ feature
- screen recorded and trimmed them to a few seconds
- compiled them on imovie
- used this site to convert my clip into a GIF
I wasn’t able to download the GIF but I inserted a link so I hope that works!
Mini Assignment #6
In the spirit of all NHL teams releasing their ‘reverse retro’ jerseys yesterday, I decided to stitch together a GIF of all seven Canadian teams’ jerseys.
I individually downloaded the videos from each team’s official Instagram account and then trimmed and stitched the videos together in iMovie. From there, I went to ezgif.com/video-to-gif to create the GIF, and voila!
This week, I was tasked to create an infographic about my website. I have no experience in digital/graphic design, however, I was able to produce this infographic through Canva. Coming up with a format and information for my infographic was the most difficult part. After exploring examples of infographics and the information they contain, I was able to nail down an idea of what I wanted mine to look like. I decided to keep it simple with minimal text and an emphasis on statistics. The centre of the “mind map” is a camera to symbolize the focus of my website, photography, and linked to it are statistic bubbles showing the type of content Sincerely, Gracie features.

Mini Assignment #5
Here is my little infographic showing just a brief description on what my blog site is about hope you like it.
This week we were tasked with creating a GIF! A GIF is a format of image sequences that acts as a short animation. I have implemented GIFs in many other parts of my website and enjoy creating them as a hobby. See my portfolio items Welcome to the Omelette Bar and Kinetic Typography, as well as my mini-assignment 3.
For this, I created another hand-drawn animation similar to mini-assignment 3 and mini-assignment 5. I am quite happy with how this illustration GIF turned out. Is it too soon to be listening to Christmas music?
This week’s mini-assignment was to make an infographic! For mine, I decided to make an infographic comparing my personal and professional traits. To do this I made an illustration of myself, cut in half to show two different versions of myself. On the left-hand side is my personality, which includes the top three areas where I spend the most time. On the right-hand side is my professional profile, including adobe skills, programming skills and some
Overall I am super proud of the way that the illustration turned out as I actually used real outfits that are in my wardrobe! I think that it represents me very well.
This week, we were asked to make an infographic that represents our presence online. I have never made an infographic nor do I have the skills to design and create stuff digitally. I usually leave that stuff up to my best friend.
BUT… This week I had no choice but to step out of my comfort zone and learn myself! Here is what I came up with…
