My favorite projects this semester were the Graphic Design Project and Logo Project. I consider myself to be a visual learner, so I really enjoyed the visual design projects. I also liked how there was a lot of creative freedom with those projects.
I learned a lot of valuable skills from this class. I feel comfortable in my ability to use Adobe software programs. This class also taught me how to manage my time efficiently. Since the majority of the course work is completed outside of class it was my responsibility to keep track of due dates and assignments. Finally, the peer critique assignments taught me to both offer and accept constructive criticism. This skill will benefit me far into the future.
I am double majoring in multimedia journalism and political science. I hope to pursue a career in political communication or reporting. I think being familiar with audition and premiere will be very beneficial in the field of journalism because I will likely have to create audio and video stories. The time management skills I gained from this course will also be very beneficial in whatever career path I go down.
I don’t feel that there is a skill I didn’t learn in the class that I wish I did. This course went above and beyond my expectations in terms of learning how to use various Adobe software programs.
Prior to this class I did not have a lot of experience with Adobe programs, so I often found myself looking up instructional videos in addition to the tutorial videos provided. Whenever I needed to use a tool that wasn’t explained in a tutorial video I just looked it up on the Internet. However, I found the tutorials to be extremely helpful and they taught me most of what I needed to know in order to complete my final assignments.
Overall, I really enjoyed this course. I had a lot of fun creating content and I really liked how much creative freedom was included in the course.
