This is the last week of classes for the summer semester, my first semester back at school. I have been taking an online graphic design application course, basically learning Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. I had never used InDesign and my skills in the other two programs were a lot of self taught things so I feel like I learned quite a bit. My final assignment in this class was to produce two portfolio pieces that we could present at a job interview that demonstrate some of the skills we have learned through the course and the teacher recommended that we stay conservative in our choices. That was the only instruction given. Of course when someone tells me to come up with something, I can’t, I get a creative block and find everything that is not related to the project to occupy my time and wait until the last minute to do the project. Granted the two projects are due tomorrow at midnight but I still have been putting even thinking about it off all week.
This is the first one I have done. All of the info is made up.
One of my favorite things in this class was learning to use photoshop for more editing than layouts like I have done in the past. We learned how to clone things and how to make more panoramic pictures and I wanted to be able to do that in my final. Now I need to come up with my second idea… then work on my final photography portfolio and study for a comprehensive health final exam!
