ECO 304K: Studio Course Graphics
Hi blog! Long time no see… I had a brief hiatus last week, but I’m back and for the first time ever working in-person at the office. So that’s exciting! Anyway, let me talk about this project that I was working on before my vacation week.
So, ECO 304K is an Intro to Microeconomics at the College of Liberal Arts, and recently they requested some Canvas and Studio course graphics for this upcoming Fall semester. I can bore you with the details of all the stuff they asked for, but I really just want to talk about two of the requests, which were also some the ones I focused on before handing the project over to another STA. (I say some because I technically also worked on the buttons and desk skirt, but those aren’t as fun to talk about).
First, I worked on the stingers. Some of the ones they asked for were from our usual stinger supply. However there were four more custom stingers that they requested: a Kahoot stinger, a Demonstration stinger, an Alumni Interview stinger, and a Q&A stinger. I worked on a lot of different versions for these and thankfully got great feedback from a fellow STA. Here are their final results:
The other thing I mostly worked on was the digital backdrop. The challenge for this one was to, first off, find a free-for-use image (or one licensed by us) that depicted a Rube Goldberg Machine, and then add a piggy bank to it, whilst also editing it to fit the chosen color scheme for the course… That being said, the following three are (first) the original image and (the following two) my best efforts to edit the image:
This is the final design by the STA that followed up with this project. I think they did a great job! So, shout out to Poonum (we will miss you)!
