I created a newsletter for a fictitious store. It was difficult to come up with content and a theme, but I am proud of my overall design and the way the images are place within the text near corresponding headlines. I’m glad that I got to use a lot of elements that I prepared for my midterm assignment but didn’t work out for that design.
I find this class to be inspirational. I have learned so much and it has really enhanced my skill level and my confidence. I am disappointed that it’s almost over and will be very sad to let it go. The assignments are challenging, but fun. What I like most about this class is that we were given a specific assignment each week to turn in that is not in the book and in turn, we have really ended up with some great portfolio quality work.
I think this was one of the hardest assignments yet. I don’t know if it was just me, but buttons were not cooperating after I exported my pdf. I finally had to give in to what I have thinking it may be a program glitch.
I redid week 8, working with styles.
I found some cute little illustrations on the web.
She sells these on etsy in PDF format for a very reasonable price. I think I’d like to try and do something similar with some of the skills I have learned this semester. Perhaps I can create templates for birthday cards and sell them on etsy.
As someone who regularly uses blending modes in photoshop, I really thought this should be easy. But it actually was not as easy as I thought. It turns out that the first two colors I tried to use didn’t work so well with the blending modes. First I tried magenta, nothing was happening, then I tried yellow, also nothing happened.
I am inspired by the colors that most often represent Easter or Spring. I’ve dedicated my week 10 assignment to them and also the web page that I am creating.
