I also finally got a chance to dive into the AIH banner designs, and here are some of the mock up’s I came up with. The noun-project icons and the colors and the text are all interchangeable, but I think overall, I like the navy background with the strips going diagonal the best.

STAs: Student Technology Assistants
Who We Are
LAITS: IT and Facilities Director, Joe TenBarge initiated the Student Technology Assistant program in 2004. STAs are UT students who work on a variety of projects in collaboration with UT faculty and LAITS staff members. STAs assist College of Liberal Arts faculty members and administrative staff with print and web design. From building presentations, to creating audio/visual works, and producing online classes in the LAITS film studios, STAs are instrumental in helping COLA faculty realize their vision for multimedia projects that enhance their teaching and the students learning experience. By the end of their student careers, STAs have portfolios which demonstrate their accrued technical and design skills.
Creative and technically inclined students are appointed as STAs for one year, with the possibility of being rehired as long as they study at the university. Applicants for the program are hired before both long semesters. Interested students may look for postings on Hire-A-Longhorn when positions are available. Positions will have Student Technology Assistant (illustrator or web designer) in the title of the job post.

I finished the Workday photo IDs!!!! Hooray!!!
Look at them! They’re doneeeee!!!
After finishing all these IDs, I was briefed by Suloni and Tate on an upcoming project for the UT Computer Support page. What I will be doing is basically making instructions/guides/directions to creating a ticket for the contact portion of the UT ServiceNow website. Here’s my progress so far!
Ooh a drop shadow! She’s FANCY.
This is all for this shift! :^)
I feel like I haven’t done a whole lot this past week, but I was pretty excited to learn Canvassar from Nick (& Estella) – mainly because I’ve heard so much about it, but never got to see what it actually is and how it works. It’s been kind of confusing, but it’s mainly because my account wasn’t set up right and I couldn’t follow along during the tutorial. Now it’s finally good to go, so I just have to toy around with Canvassar a little bit to feel more comfortable with it!
Othe than that, I worked on more RUS412 illustrations/ assets:
~animation shelf assets~
What I have so far is a script that essentially the hidden elements by changing their display from “none” to “block”.I then added this to the wordpress site using wp_enqueue_script to attach it to all single_functions.php
The result so far is a little jarring but eventually I will add animations and fix the layout so that it looks better.
Today I worked on more COLA IDs!!!! There are….so many……aaaaaaaaaa
I did…….quite a bit. There were four pages on UTBox full of raw, unedited photos and I’ve gotten through about 2.5 pages. I think I’ll be done next shift!
Lots of COLA photo IDs!!!
That’s all for today 🙂
