DMA217 Project 1 – ToDo App

What did you learn? I learned how to create an app prototype in Figma. I enjoyed this because I was already used to the design side of Figma, but now I got to see a whole new side of it, prototyping. I learned how to link buttons to different tabs and I learned how to […]

Project 4 – DMA214

What did you learn? I learned how to create unique designs while staying in the margins and using a grid.

1. What did you learn? I learned multiple ways in which Photoshop can be used to create an interesting composition. Many tools were introduced to me with this project that I either never used previously or have do so very little. For example, I never really used the gradient tool, but I now find it […]

Project 1 – DMA212

I have learned how to take pictures of a higher quality and improve them in Photoshop so that they fit into web & print portfolios. I also learned multiple ways to adjust images and change their sizes so the images fit properly in each portfolio. I haven’t used InDesign before this project, so that was […]
