After PR Pubs is over, I plan on using this domain as a portfolio. I want to showcase and highlight … More
Me chilling on top of the Tooth of Time. I have been posting on this blog every week for this whole semester. It has been pretty cool to look back and see what all I have done. I think I am going to continue this blog. I don’t think I will blog about specific courses […]
Sunrise on the Tooth of Time at Philmont Scout Ranch. I have always done my best reflecting while in the outdoors, and seeing some of Mother Nature’s beauty. So I had to include a photo of the Sunrise on the Tooth of Time (that’s the mountain in my header picture). This semester I took a […]
Well it is coming close to the end of the semester. That means it is time for my summary of learning assignment, and in the words of Li Shang from Mulan, “Let’s get down to business.” (Sorry guys I had to. I love Mulan.) I am planning on doing a digital story book on Storybird. […]
I have decided to create a direct mailer in order to recruit students to enroll in PR Publications. I will need to use InDesign in order to create the Summary of Learning assignment, as well as create a screencast. First, I will research recruitment slogans and visual materials. Next, I will begin researching designs and evaluating my … Continue reading Medium for Summary of Learning
When looking for jobs, I will definitely utilize my blog that I have used for the course. I think that the blog shows my work ethic and willingness to learn as I encountered new obstacles and worked to overcome them. I think that I will definitely use the blog throughout my time in college, during internships and beyond … Continue reading Moving Forward with a Domain
At the beginning of PR Pubs, I was intimated by the applications that we were instructed to use. At the time, I had never used things like PhotoShop or InDesign, but because I had seen people use them, I thought that they looked extremely difficult. I knew that I had design ideas, but I didn’t … Continue reading PR Pubs From The Beginning
I have had this particular blog domain for a few years now. I created it for my very first Gaylord class and I have used it for a variety of other classes. Currently, it is a jumbled mess of various school assignments, and an archive of my education here at OU. I believe that it […]
To start off, I apologize for the blinding neon pink — when I uploaded my Summary of Learning jpgs the color distorted. In reality, the color is a subdued peach.
My Summary of Learning direct mailer is inspired by propaganda influenced visuals (graphics and graffiti). The visual I chose is from one of my favorite artists Barry McGee, a San Francisco-based artist who specializes in this style of art. An underlying message in propaganda is to assemble and recruit for a movement, institution or idea. I thought what better way to recruit future pr pubs students than with a direct mailer influenced by propaganda design?
I’ve had tons of fun designing in this class. The structure worked really well with my schedule, and I enjoyed that I was able to work on my own time (it’s my last semester so it’s been hectic). The blogging took time to get used to because I hadn’t done that before. I had to overcome the initial fear that anyone could see what I was posting, but it was beneficial for me to write out my plans and reflections for each project instead of storing it all in my brain. Overall, the most growth I made was when I was designing projects for an audience I wasn’t used to designing for in a format I was wasn’t used to designing. In this class we were encouraged to really think and understand who would be consuming our designs, and that is something I think will transfer over to my post-grad life.
It’s been a fun ride in pr pubs. And best of all, I now have a few more skills to add to my skill set.
I have chosen to create an infographic on Canva to display my summary of learning. I am a huge fan of Canva and really confident in my abilities with it. That is why I chose to use the infographic as my medium of design. I wanted to be confident in my creation so that I […]
