Publishing Software - Fall 2013

Publishing Software introduces students to Photoshop, Illustrator, and the program they are likely to use most, InDesign. We produced postcards, posters, a menu, a magazine spread, and a longer project–in my case, a guide to making homemade hot sauce, excerpted below in the center image).

Learning InDesign was invaluable. I was starting a new job that required lots of InDesign work when the class began, so I used the software almost every day for one reason or another. It's an incredibly useful program, and it was very helpful to learn how the three programs work together. It's a fun class, too. I regret not taking it sooner! I would have liked to work on design projects for Ooligan.
