I started working with the WAC (Writing Across the Curriculum) fellows. They had a serious of workshops that ran through out the semester. I designed a postcard that announced the dates of all 4 workshops of the semester. For each workshop, I had to design a poster. They all included the same connecting theme/ design, with different graphics for each workshop. During the same time, I designed a poster for the Living Lab symposium for their 5th year anniversary. I recently began working on a big project that I’m excited about, which is the Literary Arts Festival event. It includes a series of designs that vary from postcards, posters, bookmarks, thank you cards, t-shirt designs and more. I was able to complete the postcard design and work on recruiting students and performers for the writing competition and festival. I also worked on the New Faculty invitation cards for their orientation and following that, I will be revising the seminar program for the 2016 year. I’m always looking forward new and exciting projects.
InDesign is one of the most important aspects of my design techniques. After laying out and brainstorming different words and designs on paper, I like to “sketch” on Indesign and start working. I like to try many different ideas at once and a big part of my design process is research.
I use other programs as well like photoshop for images and effects, and illustrator for logos. That being said, InDesign is where I’m most skilled at and can use different tricks to get my idea executed properly.
