The next project we work on will be a Career and Professional development project. We will be creating/editing and then creating a brand mark for your Resume package. This is a graduation requirement for our school.
We will be using this website to help you develop the copy for each of these components:
- Career Plan
- Cover Letter
- Thank You Letter
For those of you struggling with starting work on your career plan, below are three samples that might help you construct your plan:
- Sample Plan 1 - Illustration
- Sample Plan 2 - Graphic Designer
- Sample Plan 3 - Photographer
- Sample Plan 4 - Multimedia Artist
We'll be utilizing Google Docs to edit templates to create the text for your original documents. I would recommend using your student Google drive account for these documents so that you can share them with staff members here for evaluation/input.
After these documents are finished we will be modifying them using Adobe InDesign. For this, I am going to ask you to research some font pairings that you think will work for this professional correspondence. The website Just My Type will be helpful with dealing with fonts that are available from Adobe TypeKit. Adobe's TypeKit website could be another great resource to help you make font decisions. Listen to the pros, it will make your life easier and your work look better. I'd like to see you create a type pairing sample sheet like shown below:
