Project Description

You will create a card, postcard or stationery item of your choosing, customized with your own graphics and fonts. Before you begin, you will need to have a photograph or one or two graphics that you want to use in your design. It would also help if you had a basic understanding of Microsoft Word and idea of font pairing. Decide on whether or not to use a custom size or standard 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper. Choose your phrase, customize your font and add a graphic to match. At the end of the course you will have a card that you can print from your home computer or at larger retail printer. You will learn that Microsoft Word isn’t just for writing essays anymore!
