Top 10 Portfolio shelby reamer

1. Creative Timeline: Forming patterns

The creative timeline was one of the first projects assigned during this course. We were to show how our creative mindset has developed using only colors and shapes. The picture above is my creative timeline. Each of the different dots, in different sizes and colors, represents a memory or experience that has effected my creativity. The more time spent on an activity, the larger the dot. An example of this is the large orange dot that represents the time I spent improving my creativity through sports and the smaller turquoise dot above it represents the time I've spent creatively drawing.

2. Outside; Watch and Observe

skills used: observing
  • In this exercise, we had 15 minutes to observe outside of the classroom. I chose to watch a side walk and came back into the classroom enlightened. I noticed 19 out of 20 pedestrians were looking at their phones while crossing the street, which can pose a possible safety issue. Furthermore, only two pedestrians chose to wave at the ongoing cars that were waiting for them.

3. 3D Prototyping

skills used: Dimensional Thinking

During this project, I was part of a team that turned an idea into reality. This was dimensional thinking at its finest, making a 3D figure of a concept sketch to better visualize and analyze it. This project helped me see the importance of prototypes because once we had this prototype done we found problems to solve that we never imagined on paper.


During this speaker series we listened to a man who runs an innovation hub for medical or scientific companies here in Gainesville. The big take away that I received from listening to him was that small ideas are often the most successful, example being the snuggie, but the trick is being the first one to get the Idea on the market. I am now inspired to come up or improve on an existing idea and work with resources such as an innovation hub to get it out and start marketing.

4. Creative challenge days 1-10: Imaging

During the first ten days of the creative challenge, I was really pushed out of my comfort zone. For ten days, I chose a different creative project from a list of potential ideas and created. I wrote poems, drew animals that did not exist and made a piece of graffiti artwork.

5. ted talk: how great leaders inspire action: recognizing patterns

This was an extremely relevant and interesting ted talk that we watched during class. This speaker claimed the way that great leaders and leading companies are successful are by leading by the "why" rather than the "what." This was extremely powerful to listen to and it was obvious that this man like many great leaders was creative enough to recognize this pattern.

6.Speaker series 1: transforming

During this speaker series we had a unique experience of listening to a speaker who lived her life though dance. The speaker gave us a taste of this and pushed our comfort zones to show that a change in the way we think or do things can make a positive impact on our learning and view of the world.

7. Creative Challenge Days 21-30: Synthesizing

For days 21-30 I chose to paint a canvas each day. Although this was a more time consuming option for me I found it enjoyable. I think the major creative tool for me in this project was synthesizing because I looked at many paintings done by other people to get inspired and chose what I was going to paint, taking a little from each example.

8.Empathy Project: Empathizing

Throughout this project, participants put themselves in others shoes and watched people make healthy or unhealthy choices. Keeping an eye on others gave an opportunity to see places of improvement on our campus that were discussed during class. Some of the improvements emphasized during class were a need for healthier and convenient food options as well as a need for more sanitation at the bathrooms in the library during nightly hours.

9. Inside out: Abstracting

The clip of inside out that we watched during class focused on a very advanced subject manner: abstracting. Characters were simplified and visually broken down in three stages to show a clear meaning behind the term abstract.

10. body thinking: observing

For this Project we used all our senses to conceptualize the chairs in our classroom. We payed attention to detail such as the bright orange color, rolling wheels, and backpack try; however, we also closed our eyes and touched the chair to feel the full texture and get a better visualization of it.
