A journal is also a tool for self-discovery, an aid to concentration, a mirror for the soul, a place to generate and capture ideas, a safety valve for the emotions, a training ground for the writer, and a good friend and confidant.” Ron Klug
Task: Create a simple 1 page recipe document using Adobe InDesign. Include images and text. You can either use the template provided or create one from scratch.
Reflection: Playing with layouts and type is one of my favorite things to do as a designer. I LOVE organizing things! =) I started this assignment using the template given to use but found it more challenging to use than creating a spread from scratch and I have experience with InDesign! So I was pretty impressed with those in the class who not only used it, but made it their own.

Task: Add a short reflection on what you have learnt during the course and consider how you might use these new skills to develop your own practice.
Reflection: When I started the course, I thought there would be more information on interactive and mobile design practices. Since it wasn't, I used the assignments to challenge myself to use a combination of tools to produce my final product. I made my graphics in Illustrator, created the final layout in Indesign and presented my images with photoshop mockups (I have a secret love for mockups!).
I imagined teaching InDesign is a challenging task so I'd like to applaud the instructors for their work! And all my peers for their feedback to help me improve my skills!
