Debby’s Introduction and Job 1

Hi everyone, my name is Debby Queen and I amvery excited to be here in the class. I was born and raised in Fairbanks, and let briefly to attend college in Montana where I studied philosophy.  I have three great kiddos; Morrow, Oscar, and Owen (16, 8, and 5, respectively) and a wonderful husband.  I work here at the university in the  Office of Information Technology as an executive assistant.

I use inDesign occasionally at work,along with the other Adobe applications to help create marketing and communications materials and this is becoming a much bigger part of my job. Additionally, I have spend the last 2 months creating the printed and web materials for my best friend’s (and soon to be sister-in-law’s) wedding.  I really enjoy designing and hope to do more in the future, both in my current job and potentially independently.  I am excited to improve my skills and learn techniques to create better products.

I look forward to getting to know you all better through this blog, and getting to see all of our progress and we work through the jobs.

Job 01 and Introduction

Hello, Ginny here…on a rainy afternoon in Juneau.

I’m posting from a macbook with my ipad standing by as a backup display. I’m at home, in the room where most of the action occurred when our three children were growing up.   Lots of block towers, lego creations, sleepovers, home work projects, etc. happened here.  My husband and I met as teachers in Ketchikan but have lived our married life and raised our kids here in Juneau.

I’m tickled to have successfully created my first ever blog post and now look forward to checking back often to learn from all of you! I’ve wanted to try InDesign for a couple of years, can’t wait to be able to begin to use it at work and home.

Oh, and may I share a link with you? Before starting my business card I zipped over to to look at their designs for inspiration. I wondered if you’d enjoy it too.
