The time has finally come to write my last blog for copy and layout. I can’t say I’m sad about this, but that does not mean I did not enjoy this course. I actually enjoyed learning how to use these different programs, and this is was one of the first classes that encouraged me to … Continue reading One Last Post

A Narrative Emerges

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I touched on this last week, but after reviewing all of my old blog posts I can definitely see a narrative take place over this past semester. In a way it was a series of smaller narratives for each project that has come together to present a greater story. It starts like this… Design novice … Continue reading A Narrative Emerges

An Emerging Pattern

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It is week 12 now, and I can see a pattern emerging through these blog posts. The first week we learn a new software I hate it, and I am lost in the process.

I had no idea what I was doing with InDesign, and this really blocked my creativity. Because I didn’t know how to manipulate the … Continue reading Highs and Lows

Sore Eyes

I was not looking forward to taking this class. People usually say it is hard, and the thought of learning a bunch of design software sounded pretty daunting. However, after syllabus week most of my worries were put to rest.  That was probably because we hadn’t started using any of the software yet…. Fast forward … Continue reading Sore Eyes

The Joys of Syllabus Week

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

For a college student, syllabus week is just about as good as it gets. You get to see all of your college buddies for the first time in a while, and for some reason it is the one week of the year where it is somewhat socially acceptable to go to campus corner every night. … Continue reading The Joys of Syllabus Week
