Rimi ‘Kookaburra’ Morita posted a cropped sign assignment a couple of days ago giving a unique interpretation of Cogdog’s Assignment. But more importantly Rimi’s post was the first post (tagged correctly) to appear in that assignment’s stream.

So in the spirit of doing a ds106 visual or design assignment not ever done before I’m choosing Cogdog’s sadly neglected, yet awesome “Cropped Signs.” The assignment is inspired by Blackout Newspaper Poetry – tell a story through redaction. I love this idea because it empowers you to sort through the BS of a story and tell an audience what you think the “real message” is.

So here’s my interpretation of this assignment and for Cogdog this under appreciated ds106 assignment post goes to you!
