Turning In Your Assignments
Save And Upload To Focus
All work will be turned in using FOCUS/PORTAL. I will be able to grade your work, count your work and give feedback on your work using Focus.
Grades will be entered within two weeks of turning in your project. Some projects will take one or two days for you to complete, some will take several weeks. Please be patient as grading is completed. For every day a project due date is missed, a letter grade reduction will occur.
.PSD files preserve your layers, allowing you to come back and work on files with all your work preserved.
.JPEG files are compressed for display online. 300 resolution or better. Anything below is too blurry.
.PNG files are high quality and create a transparent background.
.AI files are native to Adobe Illustrator
.ID files are native to Adobe InDesign
We have a class network to save your class work:
It allows you to keep work in class that you are working on. This file contains a folder for your class work. It is where you can keep your design work in class or move things into from your One Drive or your Flash Drive if you do work at home.
