Things You Might Need

The classes involve a lot of creating and designing, like A LOT. Some of the main projects have you sketch out your ideas on a sketchbook, which is always good to have because going straight into designing on your laptop or computer isn’t always the best idea, I would know because I always did that, then I would have a little bit of a struggle trying to perfect my ideas on my laptop because I had already went diving straight into digital. So take my advice and “BRING A SKETCHBOOK!”. It’s probably recommended that you bring your own personal laptop for some software programs to download so that you can work on assignments and projects. Some of the Applications that you might need are Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Audition, and Premiere Pro, basically all of Adobe’s applications. It’s crazy how much Adobe Software we use in this program. This Program is very tech related so you can expect a lot of electronic devices and equipment. you’ll be spending most of the time using the Mac computers to hone your digital craft.

My Time With The Instructors and Classmates

The Instructors are very educational people. The Instructors really know their stuff when it comes to teaching and guiding the students especially someone like me who is always confused when we learn something new. If you’re ever having trouble don’t be afraid to ask your classmates, after all we are all in the same group taking this program.

Working with your classmates in this program was very helpful for getting feedback and comparing your assignment and projects, being able to see your classmates work is very interesting to see their design process and how they went from a sketch on on a book to a digital design on the Mac computers or windows computers depending on which you prefer to use. Being in the same class and program, you will likely become friends with the amount of time you spend in class.

With all the classmates you have, they are more than willing to help you if you have a problem on a assignment or project and if your like me who is terrible at coding, there are others who are leagues better. And if you aren’t sure about design layout or picture you are creating, by all means ask a classmate and be sure to ask which design they would prefer if you’re having a tough time deciding from two or multiple designs. Of course the Instructors are ALWAYS more than willing to critique and give feedback on your work and fix the small or big mistakes you might make along the way.
