Whew! A lot of little tasks this week.
Course Graphics – EEV Computational Biology
Still working on the stinger slides for this.
Maddy showed me how to access the actual depository we have of nice, high res UT photos, so I started with something sciencey.
The client wanted something more UT-y, and later requested something similar in color to the backdrop. This is where I ended up after a few iterations.
Still awaiting feedback – and after today, I’ll be gone for a week, so I might need to share my editables before signing off.
Intermediate Training: Brochures
Finally had time to get back to this, and pretty much wrapped it up.
Some of the spacing could… be improved. I’ll wait for direct feedback on finishing touches.
Asset updates – COM301E & PSY352P
I’ve been doing a lot of these, and sometimes I don’t log them on my blog, but this week I learned a new skill from Maddy – using the timeline in Photoshop to export animated files!
I also updated another one that I did not learn any new skills from, nor can I take credit for how pretty it looks, but I might as well put it on my blog.
Intermediate Training: UI/UX with Figma
This is another very open-ended training I’m excited for. It teeeeechnically has a 3-4 hour suggested timeframe, but I’m really being a perfectionist and deep-diving because it involves a lot of new skills.
So far, I’m just in the stage of drafting a fictional florist website (as a “wireframe” drawing) and learning to use Figma.
I’m still working on the basic Figma tutorials. Honestly, they’re not well designed… limited interaction, a lot of text, and weirdly enough, a lot of the instructions are out of date? It references panels and tools with different names and placements, so it’s a lot more self-teaching than it’s meant to be. Oh well.
