How was the course format? I liked the class format. I especially liked that each week we used Challenge Banks. Since we were able to decide which of the projects we wanted to do, it gave the class a more personal touch. I think it would have been better if there was more teaching rather … Continue reading “Vanessa’s Final Thoughts (the good kind)”

This is it. The final assignment and probably the final blog post from the Samual the Copywriter. This has definitely been an enriching semester with many lessons in store.

For my summary project I completed a peanut gallery film to be used for recruiting students to Advertising Copy and Layout.

For my summary of learning assignment I wanted to highlight the main things we focused on in the class with simple images. Design, copy, and videos were the biggest topics we focused on. I wanted to show future students what the class would entail. I especially wanted to mention video because that was a bit of a surprise to me this semester. And that the video portion did take up a lot of our time.
Overall it was a fun semester, I enjoyed learning new skills and design techniques. The weekly challenges I thought were a great way to introduce us to the subjects with something fun and manageable for beginners. Writing blog posts was a nice way for us to practice writing for the public and to keep you updated with what we were doing. Especially this being an online course, the blog posts helped keep us all connected as a class.
So here it is. My final assignment for the course. It blows my mind how fast this semester has gone by, but I am proud to say that I have taken a lot away from this course. For my Summary of Learning, I decided to create three pieces of a print advertising campaign that show … Continue reading “Final Reflection”
I feel like I’ve fallen off the wagon a little bit. I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to the final project due to finals, and mostly life. I don’t want this to be a reflection of the entire course though. I have THOROUGHLY enjoyed every aspect of this course. From start to … Continue reading Reflection →
