Unit 02 – Mission 1

In Unit 2 we will complete our first mission. The “creativity” missions all describe or imply a product as an outcome of the module (an animated GIF or two for “Art of the Animated GIF”, for example), so your work should follow a path of your own design that will hopefully result in an appropriate product. However, you won’t be graded on whether or not you achieve that goal of making something. Instead, your objectives are to learn something new and to learn more about how you learn with digital tools and concepts by designing, understanding, and reflecting on your own processes. Doing this well is hard, and it starts by challenging yourself to move beyond your comfort zone. Feel free to fail!
