Week 6 – Business Card and Writing Workshop #3

I attempted to create a business card this week in class, but was unsuccessful. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted. I wanted the same font and color of my name that I have on my resume so I took a screenshot of it.

I then followed the video tutorial that was given to us in class, but couldn’t even get past the first step. I downloaded a business card layout from the website suggested in the video and then tried to import it into PhotoShop, but the program would not let me import. I tried clicking and dragging it into PhotoShop, but that didn’t work either.

I decided that rather than continue with PhotoShop I would use the Method Draw website and see if I could make some progress there. I was able to import my screenshot of my name, but couldn’t figure out where to go from there.

So basically, I didn’t get anything done. However, I am happy with how my short Writing Workshop #3 turned out. I wrote about my experience at the Eagles Super Bowl Parade. Here is what I wrote along with some photos to create a better picture of what the day was like…..

A sea of green floods Broad Street. Confetti dances in the air. Millions of people anxiously await the arrival of the Eagles football team. The crowd cheers from behind the barricaded street, E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES! Some of the ‘rowdier’ fans attempt to climb flag poles, street signs and statues. The whole city is dressed in team gear from head to toe: hats, face paint, sweat shirts, and jerseys. Phone cameras flash every second to capture a memory of the crazy day. The air is bitter cold. Children sitting on their parent’s shoulders with a bird’s eye view wipe their red, runny noses, but their eyes are in awe of the confetti and sky writers spelling out “Philly Philly Dilly Dilly” in the sky.
