Skill Builder Design Print and Screen

Each week, I will complete a creative assignment and share a reflection on the process and learning for the week.

Class 1 Assignment: Create a simple 1 page recipe document using Adobe InDesign. Includes images and text. For this assignment, I created a recipe on how to bake a cake from scratch. On the first attempt, I did not see that there was a template for the assignment so I did the project from scratch. I went back and redid the project the correct way. Here is my Behance link for my project: https://www.behance.net/amariesmith and the PDF version of the project:

Class 2 Assignment: Create a music poster with Adobe InDesign. Invent the band or musician they will want to see. For this assignment, I created a poster for a Destiny's Child, one night only reunion concert.

One Night Only...Destiny's Child Reunion Concert

Reflection: I found this class to be very interesting. It was a refresher for InDesign for me since I have already taken an Adobe InDesign course through AEE. I was however, able to learn some new things that I will be able to add to my course curriculum and teach to my students. The first project, creating a recipe was a nice introduction to InDesign and its features. Project 2, the poster design was an opportunity to use some more advanced skills. I really enjoyed the the Spark Learning journal. This allows students to have their projects and reflections in one location. This is definitely something I will be incorporating into my future courses.
