Class 1 Homework Assignment
I liked this assignment, although I think the portfolio photo should be without much editing. Because the portfolio should reflect reality.
I have edited a photo of my family member and have permission to use it in this course.
I publish my homework assignment and also the original picture.

Class 3 Homework Assignment
The logo is the first, which is noticed. In my opinion, it must be both - simple and different.
I used Adobe Illustrator to make my logo and then Adobe Photoshop to see how it looks like mock up.
I made two variants, of different shape and size.
Class 4 Homework Assignment
I like this ePortfolio assignment. I use few sites to share my design. But i am impressed by Spark. Scrolling portfolios is something new to me and I really enjoyed using it.
I used the Behance platform a long time ago, but with time other commitments prevented me.
Now I'm back there.

Reflection - final element of the course
It was extremely helpful course for me.
The video instructions, readings, assignments, additional materials and links, comments and discussions - all this as an ensemble - were very useful.
I teach beginners graphic and web designers, programmers, coders and other freelancers. During the course, I realized that my approach to them is really correct. But incomplete.
This course gave me a new point of view, new ideas how to be much more useful for my students and clients.
I have learned a new way to stimulate their growth and creativity.
Now I know more about the importance of proper leadership and training. Even the small details in this course gave me very great guidelines. With excitement and pleasure i will share the new knowledge and skills I have gained.
I enjoyed with this course !
