Hello! I’m Emily and this is my second day as a STA. Over the past two days, I have gone through STA Orientation and was even given the chance to work on one of the ongoing projects.
As a part of Orientation I went over the STA Handbook with Suloni and made a few Powerpoint slides to show my understanding of the handbook.
I chose to use a minimalist layout and simple iconographic illustrations. It was helpful receiving prompt feedback from Suloni and Jac, both of whom advised me to choose higher contrasting colors in the future. This is especially important when creating visuals meant for web display.
I was excited to begin working on one of the projects. Rodrigo taught me how to use Canvasser and I began working on the re-pass for the Computer Support Pages.
I went through and linked the fonts, made the top header interactive, and inserted photos onto the “How to Connect to a Network Drive” page.
Overall, the last couple of days have been pretty eventful and I am looking forward to working as an STA.
