For my PR Publications class, we were asked to brainstorm ideas for a business card and then begin the design process through InDesign. When asked to complete this assignment, I felt prepared to take it on. We had been given the basic InDesign skills during Boot Camp and all I had to do was put them into action. I wasn’t sure how I wanted to design my business card, but because of the lectures early on, I felt I could complete it from scratch and create something that was aesthetically pleasing.
After I followed Croom’s detailed instructions and started to use InDesign, my business card actually came together. The outline looks pretty good and I am pleasantly surprised I have the necessary skills. I love learning these different skills and then being able to put them to use. I am able to use basic InDesign and then the other areas I need to learn, I can use Lynda.com or simply Google it.
Originally, I think my reaction was pleasantly surprised because I do obtain the necessary skills it takes to complete a business card on InDesign. Croom has given us the skills we need to
take our portfolio to the next level.
