Day 33

Back from Mardi Gras break! I continued working on the last two banners for the Read Pink sale, paying attention to the things Erin mentioned on Friday (spacing and sizing the copy to show hierarchy). Laura suggested that I switch to a sans serif font that has more weight choices. She also said that I … Continue reading Day 33


Day 32

Laura was not here today, but this had been planned in advance and she told me at the beginning of the week that she would be absent Friday. I continued to work on the Read Pink homepage banner, then printed out some roughs as thumbnails and brought them to Erin to look at.     … Continue reading Day 32

Day 31

I immediately started working on the Read Pink banners as soon as I came in today. Laura had another webcam meeting with the database company in her office at 9:30, so we went over my roughs before it started. I showed her which ones were my favorite, and she gave me some suggestions: The covers … Continue reading Day 31

Day 30

As usual, I checked Liquid Planner and my emails when I came in, but there weren’t any projects for me to do. But when Laura came in she told me that Erin sent her the copy for the next sale promotion, so I’ll be working on that today. Yay! I like to be busy. Laura … Continue reading Day 30

Day 29

First thing today, I checked Liquid Planner, and found no new projects for me. As usual, I worked on my internship blog instead. I asked Laura if Erin had replied about the next sales promotion I am supposed to be designing, and she said that she hadn’t gotten the chance to ask Erin yet, but … Continue reading Day 29

Day 28

Day 27

After uploading my proof yesterday, Kate commented that I should change the font of “The Southern Review” into the same font as the logo font, and put “Read local with” in italics instead. She also said that she made a mistake in the copy and “bookshop” in the subhead should be two words. When I … Continue reading Day 27

Day 26

Today I printed out a few more thumbnails from yesterday’s roughs and went to talk with Barbara about them as soon as I arrived. She showed me a few of the past ads that they did, and that it was different from what I was doing. I looked at a few other ads for The … Continue reading Day 26

Day 25

Yesterday afternoon, Barbara asked me on Liquid Planner if I could do an ad for The Southern Review. I replied that I could, and this morning when I came in I asked Barbara a few questions to clarify the assignment. The ad is black and white and 3 5/16” by 4 7/8”. The sizes of … Continue reading Day 25

Day 24

Happy Valentine’s Day! Michelle came in when I arrived and wished me a happy day, giving me some cute heart-shaped snacks. I checked Liquid Planner and found no new projects, so I sorted through my daily written notes and continued catching up on my daily posts. I also scanned an image of an author into … Continue reading Day 24
