This Class Was Great

In this class I learned a lot, more than I think I will ever be able to explain. However, I will start to try to explain most of what U have learned.

Starting with the fact that I learned how to even use Indesign in the first place. Before this class I only touched Indesign because of a project in my beginning classes. Let me tell you I never thought there was so much I could learn in such a little amount of time. I learned how to work with master pages in Indesign, add pages, create character styles, and paragraph styles that can be used any time and makes it easier o match up text. In this class I also learned how to be able to set up your pages to match up with making the dummies. This is not all though, I learned about print, and different kinds of prints and which ones are used now, I also learned where different design styles started and how far back in which they did start.

This is only the beginning of what I have learned in this class, it has been so much fun learning different things that I have never really thought was possible.

The Most Competitive and Dificult

I believe that advertising is the most lucrative niche in design because it is hard to e able to know what everyone is thinking. I believe that it is the most competitive and difficult because of all the people that want to get their hands in it. Like what was said in a lecture before, advertising is the most difficult because you have to know what will get people off their butt's and go but the products that you are trying to sell.

You have to e able to get into the target audience heads and sell them the product that you are advertising. You have to make people remember you either by making them laugh or by making them react to your advertisement with an emotion, whatever that emotion might be.

 This is what makes advertising the most competitive and difficult for people to master. Or at least it is what I think about this area of design.

Printing Vs. Printing

A question that people seem to have lately is why is some printing more expensive than other printing? I believe that a few things come into play when this is asked.

First thing is that the price may depend on the paper you want to print on. Like the weight, and grain, and size of the paper will or could make the pricing more in printing if the paper you choose to print on is more than the standard piece of paper.

Next could be the size of what you want printed, it could be more expensive if you want to print some thing that is twenty pages rather than something that is ten pages.

Finally the amount of colors that you want printed on your piece. Say you want something printed with ten different colors, that could cost more than printing something with just three different colors.

These are just a couple of things to keep in mind when thinking about print something with a print shop, than rather at home. I say that because if you print at home it is cheaper because you are using cheaper paper, and not getting the best product that you could be getting if you spent a little more money on it.

Life Changing Photography

I believe that photography has changed the world in many different ways, first way was, by what we talked about in class, people didn't need to hand paint people and have them sit for hours a day while the artist painted them. Photography was faster than having to stay in one place for long periods of time, however they still needed to sit there for a little while. That is a example of how they changed the world, but that isn't a big reason of how it did.

The most important reason of how it changed the world is different for everyone, but for me I think of how it made it easier for people to capture a moment in time. For that reason it was important because us as kids were able to see images for way before our time. It is like seeing is believing, because people made photography happen, we are able to see pictures of wars, old houses, pictures of art that we have yet to see in person. Photographic made it easier for us to see what other people get to see, and even a little about how they might portray things. These are just a few ways that I see how photography has changed the world.
