I think that in creating this video, the Microsoft employees were showing perhaps that they would prefer using designs similar to Apple’s design. Microsoft products are usually packaged in boxes with many details like the final product they made in the video for the iPod. The last phrase of “It really stands out” after the final Microsoft iPod design seemed sarcastic. Apple’s design was very simple (including a lot of white space and very little text) and did not include the drowning amount of information that is put on most Microsoft packaging.

I think that my documentation project speaks to my intended audience. I tried to be specific while giving step by step directions so that there would not be any confusion. Hopefully, this is the case, and I plan on edited sections when I get feedback on them. I think that business cards are important tools because they share your contact information with the person receiving the card. Therefore, it is important that someone designs their business cards in an effective manner. I hope that the readers trust that the information I provided is accurate.

My LinkedIn Page

My LinkedIn page is still a work in progress. I do not want to add my work experiences from the daycares/camps I worked at because I do not find them relevant to the field I am going into. I want my profile to be appealing to people in the cosmetic science field. I am working on finding a good profile picture and background picture. Please let me know if there are any suggestions that would benefit my page.

Documentation Project Research

In researching my topic (Five Tips for Making Business Cards in Adobe Illustrator), I discovered many different tutorials on designing business cards. A few of them were also in Adobe Illustrator, so I viewed many of them to compare the processes and even what worked and what did not work as far as the tutorials themselves. Some parts seemed confusing or vague, so I will not word my tutorial in those ways. Some steps that were used could also be shortened which is what I will try to include in my user documentation.
