One of the most memorable experiences from me this semester was the feedback I received throughout the semester, particularly on my magazine cover. I feel as though I became a much better designer with all of the constructive feedback my classmates gave me and standing in front of the class, presenting my design, and getting great feedback was a very memorable experience. Particularly, my classmates really helped me to decide which cover photo to use for my magazine. As seen above, I had many different versions of the magazine. With their help, I was able to chose a photograph that I wasn't really considering, yet it turned out to be my favorite. Through experiences like this one, I feel as though I have become much more open to criticism and that's definitely a life lesson I will carry from this class.
Another memorable experience was one of the very first projects we did. This "hidden word" assignment truly allowed me to explore the many features of Photoshop. For my first hidden word edition, I simply hand drew everything. Then, I decided to branch out and discover the many things that Photoshop had to offer. I ended up using the line tool, warping fonts, and the eraser to create a very unique design. This experience was very memorable because I was able to become much more comfortable with Photoshop and do things that would help me the rest of the semester. Now, with the class ending, I will look to Photoshop more often to help me with design projects or simply just to edit a photo.
