Design has always been a part of my life, from clothing and knitting patterns to residential landscapes. Graphic design, particularly in the way it applies to the book publishing process, felt like a natural extension. The publishing program design classes covered the basics of Adobe Creative Suite and offered experience designing postcards, flyers, menus, magazine spreads, and collages. I had the opportunity to create various types of advertising material as well as a website for a publishing conference. Relevant coursework included Publishing Software, Book Design and Publishing Studio.
