Reading Response 6

By on

Whenever I was first watching the video assigned for this reading response, all I could think about was how drastically different the two companies choose to package their products. Later, I actually realized that the Microsoft employees that created this video were actually self critiquing their own company! The video starts off by showing the simplistic, yet elegant, packaging that Apple used to package an early iPod. It then shows how Microsoft would choose to redesign the packaging if they were given the chance.

Media Resume Draft

For my Alternative/Creative/Multimedia section of the Resume Project, I decided to create a creative resume using Adobe InDesign. This version of my resume is much more visually appealing and uses pictures, text colors and fonts and colorful borders to make any future employers notice this paper over a normal black and white print resume.

By on

Through our research, Thomas and I hoped to find out more about who Joshua Browder is and why he was so determined to find a way to stop Parking Services from taking advantage of people by giving them parking tickets. We found out that Joshua Browder is a student at Stanford University. He had to pay several different parking tickets before he decided that he wanted to find a way to make sure that these tickets were legitimate, and if they weren't he wanted a way to get out of them. This was his motivation for creating the software.

My topic for this project is "How to Professionally Use Adobe InDesign in the Workplace". Whenever I undertook this topic for this project, I had never used InDesign before and had no idea how I wanted to show how it could be used professionally in the workplace. Therefore, in order to successfully present effective uses for the program, I was in dire need of doing some research to find out the main tools that can be accessed in the software. To start my research, I spent some time reading through different tutorials that I found by searching for "simple uses of Adobe InDesign" on Google.
