Learning how to work InDesign was
extremely important to me because I
had never used the programe before. It
is difficult to understand at first, but
with more practice and the creation of
more documents, I am sure to fully
understand it soon!
2. Personal Business Card and
I loved making my own personal
business cards! They really are a good
thing to have on hand, especially since I
am about to graduate and begin looking
for a PR entry level position. This is a
good thing to hand someone so they can
have quick access to your contact

professional and well organized.
Creating the brochure for Save-A-
Life, Inc. of Savannah, GA was
extremely helpful to me learning the
ins and outs of InDesign (#1 on list).
I never realized all the elements and
design principles that go into creating

Learning how to use different fonts
was also fun for me. I am notorious
with playing around with fonts for
hours, so I can get whatever I am
designing to also look the message
that it is presenting. It is very
important to fit the image of what
you are presenting.

During the best practices
presentations, I learned many
different things that I did not know
before about InDesign and my
WordPress blog. I presented on how
to convert your InDesign file into a
7. WordPress Blogs
I have never had a blog before, and I
honestly never thought I would have
one. This blog has helped my google
search rate go up. I used to type in my
name and hometown since there are so
many Sarah Wilsons’. I could go all the
way to page 10 and find nothing on me.
Last time I searched, I was number
three! Thanks to twitter and my
(Contrast, Repetition, Alignment and
Learning about these elements will
help anyone when they are designing.
9. Presenting to the class
I learned that a presenter must
ALWAYS be prepared, not matter
what happens. The presenter should
also have full control over the
10. Designing overall…
This class really made me realize that
more thought needs to be put into
designing publications. It is not just
about making things look pretty.
