Farewell, Stella Mae

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Alas, the time has come to bid adieu to sweet Stella Mae, graphic designer extraordinaire. I have truly enjoyed my time spent with all you kittens as I documented my journey through the magical, ever-changing world of graphic design. My final project was an infographic outlining important lessons learned that I learned in PR Publications over […]

PR Publications Reflection

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

PR Pubs has been an extremely helpful and defining course for me. Early on in the course, I felt rather discouraged. I hadn’t utilized any photoshop software since I was an eighth grader, and I have never thought of myself as a particularly creative person, so I assumed that the class wouldn’t have much effect on […]

In the Moment

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

My title for this week’s blog post derived from the song that plays in the background of my video project. My COMPLETED video project, I might add. After weeks of tireless effort and a few mental breakdowns (just kidding), I finally turned in my interview assignment. As someone who has used iMovie plenty of times […]

PR Pubs + Premiere

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

This week in PR Pubs included the continuation of our video project. This week also solidified my assurance that the video project was my favorite project we’ve done yet. I love the quiet that surrounds it; with everyone focusing individually on their own project, you can almost feel that presence of boosted creativity and innovation […]

Hello, dearest kittens! I have big news for you all: I am now a movie star! This week in PR Publications, we finally recorded the long-awaited interviews. I was paired up with Jensen, a spunky, sassy, blue-and-pink-haired girl in my class who sat on the opposite side of the room of me and with whom […]

Adobe Premiere Videos Killed the Radio Star

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Mwah, my beautiful kittens! I, Stella Mae, have had such a long week, and am so excited to finally sit down and take a break from my stressful life. This week in PR Publications was quite low-key, something that the busybody Stella Mae just isn’t used to. It was quite nice, though, to learn more […]

The Prestigious Adobe Premiere Pro

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Hello, dearest ones. Stella Mae here. I am currently sitting on a plane on the way to Seattle and cannot seem to get my mind off the wonder that is PR Publications. This past week, we were introduced to Adobe Premiere Pro. I am one of the most distinguished graphic designers in the world, but […]

Canva vs. Photoshop: The Showdown

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Greetings kittens, it’s Stella Mae here. Today I will be displaying my versatility by switching between my journalist identity, Jenny Baker, and of course my designer alter ego, the Stella Mae you have all known and loved, to discuss the showdown between two design platforms: Canva and Photoshop. Jenny: Hi, Stella. How are you today? […]

(Photo)shop Till You Drop

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Well, Stella Mae had a FABULOUS time working with photoshop this week! After working tirelessly on the direct mailer project, I finally reached a design that I was proud of, more so than any other of my designs this semester. I created two separate designs for two separate audiences. The first audience was incoming sophomores […]

Our House

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Hello my kittens! Stella Mae back with yet another exciting development in the PR Publications saga. This week, part of my project-creating a direct mailer for the new University Housing that will be open to OU students in the fall of 2017-was to tour a currently-existing off campus housing option that could possibly provide competition […]
