My Experience in CST-328 - Digital Art and Design:
The class was very useful, having been using The Gimp and Inkscape, I was completely clueless about how to use Photoshop and Illustrator until this class very helpfully showed me how.
I was able to get some very useful and educational experimenting with Illustrator, XD, Photoshop and I also practiced more with The Gimp and Inkscape, my favorite free open source alternatives to the Adobe counterparts.
Here are links to my journals:
I put lots of example knowledge in my journals as I came across it
The final week was for making a video about our final project:
(That's a video!)
This is a working interactive prototype you can click stuff in it:

Thank You CSUMB for the Adobe Design overview class! The material is extremely broadly applicable and useful, as well as extremely well presented. This class ended February 25th, 2022. See journals (links at the top) for more insights from during this class time period.
