Now that you’re familiar with Photoshop tools and techniques from last week’s tutorials assignment, it’s time to finish the first multimedia project in this course: the Graphic Design Project. This project is intentionally left vague to allow each of you the freedom to create according to your chosen topics and interests, but please read the instructions carefully to make sure your idea will fit all the requirements.
Please note the Unit 1 Quiz is due this week in Blackboard, which covers the Unit 1 readings for Weeks 2 and 3. You can take this anytime before the deadline but, remember, the Blackboard submission portal closes on Tuesday at 11:59 p.m.
For this project, don’t worry about your artistic abilities or creativity – it’s more about communicating a clear and original message visually. If you are worried about this, please start the project early and ask for help early on so we assist you with plenty of time to work through the details.
Week 3 To-Do List
❑ Read the Week 4 readings listed on the course schedule
❑ Take the Unit 1 Quiz in Blackboard by Tuesday
❑ Complete and submit the Graphic Design Project Feedback assignment by Tuesday
❑ Complete and submit the Final Graphic Design Project by Friday
❑ Earn your Unit 1 Participation Credit by checking in with me (Colin Storm) if you haven’t already (you must check in via email with me once per unit in order to earn this)
For fun, here’s a video of Photoshop experts attempting to use Photoshop 1.0, which debuted 26 years ago in February 1990.
