For this assignment, we were asked to create a template for a newsletter for a Fortune 500 company. I have always been an avid fan of FedEx and love the joy they offer people. I was asked to create a newsletter template to then later put information into.
2. How did you respond to what you were asked to do?
I got started right away. As soon as we were given the assignment, I had something in mind to design. With having done so many design projects, I feel like I am ready to conquer any assignment.
3. How did react to what you actually did?
As always, I was impressed with what InDesign is capable of when you know the basic skills. That’s all it takes! After I learned the basic skills, I was able to go a little deeper with my design projects and am able to extend my creativity.
4. Now go one level deeper: Why do you think your reaction was what it was?
My reaction was impressed because I am proud of how far my design work has come from January. I had no clue what to do with Photoshop or InDesign, and now I can seamlessly design something to send out or to print for my different organizations.
The benefits from creating a dummy layout, is being able to completely focus on the content later on. It will be extremely simple to place the content where I have placeholder text.
