Contrast, Repetition, Alignment, and Proximity
We learned about all for of these elements. Their definitions, purpose, and how they are essential in any publication.

Our class took a tour of the Eagle Print Shop at GSU. We learned a lot about the printing process, how to use specific information when getting a publication printed, and different ways to print our work.

presenting to your class
