Gotta Start Somewhere

At the beginning of this course, I was not thrilled about having to have a website/consistently turn in blog posts. This mindset was also prior to actually writing my first blog post. Three assignments later and I fell in love. The blog posts weren’t required to be excessively long and I began to enjoy being able to write in a more casual tone of voice. I did, however, find that I am very picky when it comes to my writing. I have a bad habit of editing sentence by sentence rather than editing after I am done writing. The projects that I take the most pride in are the copywriting assignments and the commercial project. Despite those being my favorite, I really liked that we were able to utilize adobe photoshop for a majority of this class. I know that Photoshop is going to be incredibly prominent in my future so its best I start learning the basics now. One project that I wish I could have had a different outcome was the adjective print advertisements. I think if I would have had more time/more experience with photoshop, it could have looked better. I also think if I chose a different company name, the outcome would have turned out a lot more professional looking. This class has taught me a lot across the board about my skills and what I am capable of. I really enjoyed that it wasn’t focused on one application, but creative cloud as a whole. Because of this, I was able to get sneak peaks of intense, professional graphic design programs. I’ve grown as an advertising practitioner because I’ve realized that there will always be something to improve upon. I have gotten to challenge myself in this class as well as create a website full of projects that are applicable to my portfolio.
