Goodbye to Electronic Communications :/


Coming into this class, the only programs I knew how to use were Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. I felt throughout the semester I have learned how to use Photoshop, Garage Band, and iMovie. As well as knowing how to code a website and make a mock-site. Of course I have learned how to make a blog and use WordPress. I learned how to organize a Podcast and record one with a group. I have used the skill I have learned in this class already this semester and I plan to use the programs I have learned out in the future.

At the beginning I wrote about learning about blogs and how to use them. I know all about how to organize and write a blog thanks to your lessons on WordPress and writing blogs. I wish I had learned more about Photoshop just because I like playing with pictures, and seeing how much you can do with one simple image. I thought that everything else was a good amount of time for learning. There is always more you want to learn and you want more time to practice, but a semester is only so long. I thought iMovie was one of the easier programs that we did. I was afraid that it was going to be difficult to make a commercial, and add effects. I would not change the project that we did throughout the semester, even if they got a little frustrating sometimes, they made you learn hands on, which is the best way I learn.

I thought that you were a great teacher. I know that we goofed around and gave you a hard time sometimes, but it was all out love. You showed us a whole lot this semester. I hope were your favorite class because yours was one of mine! 🙂


A Portfolio Website


I thought this website had a unique layout. Let’s start with the header of the page. I liked how the navigation tools are down the top right of the page. I do not have a lot of information to give at the point about my, so having a big header is appropriate for my page. The design of the header is nice, with the frayed edges and picture. I know in class we saw a web page of a guy who really liked himself and had big pictures on his entire page. Well, I think that the size of this picture is a good size, not too big or too little. Since I am an Advertising student, I think this is a good set-up.

We discussed in class how we could make the idea and layout of how we would want our website to be then possibly use it in the future, I plan to use this website when I start my job and create projects. I like how this layout focuses on the latest news and projects you have done. Being in Advertising, you are always doing different projects for clients making this a doable site.

The footer is a great way to always be able to go to a different part of the site. The grey scale it has is a good way to kind of put it in the background of the page, leaving the focus where it needs to be. I like how it is focused on two color scales, but I might change the blue to something else, since blue is a popular color, I would want to make it more unique and more me.

All in all, I really like the layout of this page. I believe it focuses on the appropriate information and designs. The navigation on the top and bottom make it easy to get around the site.
