Project Description

Let me see your social media graphic or flyer. Use all of the basic design principles you learned during this class such as typography basics, font mixing, font pairing, alignment, color, color theory, photos, blocking and layout. Whew! That is a lot to think about, but when they all mesh together, it makes designing a layout simple and easy.

I used canva.com to produce the majority of graphics for this class, it is an easy and quick tool to use. If you are comfortable with Adobe products, then wonderful! Create this design in any program you feel comfortable with.
