As I neared toward the final stage of my direct mailers, Photoshop became more familiar (I think I’ll always favor InDesign, but Photoshop does offer more tools). I felt stuck with layouts, not knowing how to switch things up, and having a set of chosen images, textures, logos, etc. was a challenge. But, I enjoyed getting to play with design elements I may not have touched previously.
I’m realizing that I’m starting to push past my bubble of comfort with design, but I definitely have more strides to take this semester. Growth doesn’t happen over night, I realize that, but I do hope that with enough patience and practice I can break that bubble.
