Illustrate what occupies your mind by creating a collage of images that fit inside a silhouette shape. From the original DS106 design assignment:
Collect ten or more images that display what goes on in your head. Using a silhouette of your head in Adobe Photoshop or any other photo-editing program, display the images within your head. Give more space to those items that carry more significance to you. Try not to repeat images that display the same idea. The use of the “Layer Mask” can help eliminate backgrounds and “Color Effects” can help you with drop shadows and overlays.
Create a What I Really Do image to illustrate what people think you do versus what you think you do.
Use the Historic Tale Construction Kit to generate an image that depicts a challenge you have overcome or something else you might place in your portfolio or online representation as a metaphor for something you have done. The elements in the tool are from the Middle Ages era Bayeux Tapestry that depicted the 1066 Battle of Hastings.

If you owned a country, what would your flag look like? Design a flag for The Country of You (lifted from a DS106 Daily Create).
What one word stands out to describe your day?
Create a graphic version of that word in no more than three colors- draw the letters (do not use type tools!) and put a frame around it. Amy Burvall’s visual #oneword practice:
On my plane ride last night I had a thought – what if I could essentialize my day into 1 word? What would be the most important? I am a big fan of creativity in restraint… I also see it as a way to experiment with and practice my typography, since my palette is self-restricted to hot pink and black I really need to play in other ways.
Make a four icon collage of symbols or icons that describe you or your interests. Try to find ones that are graphically uniform in design- the ones above are from the Noun Project. Share a link to your image (can be uploaded to twitter or on your blog, the latter is better because you can give attribution).
