Pr Pubs Top Ten

  1. 1. PR PUBS Top Ten By: Sarah Wilson S
  2. 2. 1. InDesign 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!
  3. 3. 2. Personal Business Card and Letterhead 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 information. It also makes you look professional and well organized.
  4. 4. 3. Brochure 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 a brochure before.
  5. 5. 4. Fonts 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.
  6. 6. 5. Eagle Print Shop Our class took a trip to the Eagle Print Shop which is located on GSU’s campus across from the University Book Store. This trip taught me numerous things, but most importantly to me…PRICES! The Eagle Print Shop prides themselves on offering the same services as OfficeMax, but for much less $money$. A student couldn’t ask for more!
  7. 7. 6. Best Practices Presentations 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 PDF file.
  8. 8. 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 wordpress blog!
  9. 9. 8. CRAP (Contrast, Repetition, Alignment and Proximity) Learning about these elements will help anyone when they are designing.
  10. 10. 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 audiences’ attention.
  11. 11. 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.
