In Fall 2016, I took “The Editing Process” at the University of Utah. The course is an upper division communication/writing course described in the catalog as: “Judging content and form and preparing copy for publication. Graphics, layout, and picture editing included.” This course reaffirmed and honed my writing and formatting skills in everything from article writing/editing to formatting newspapers. Throughout the process, I learned to trust my intuitive creative design skills and delve deeper into Adobe Photoshop and InDesign. Concurrently with the course, I worked on promotional material for my community theater’s production of “Disney Aladdin Jr.” and was able to include some of the designs into my portfolio.
