Test Drive

Well, this is the first entry to a list of entries pertaining to graphic design. I'm not use to ranting or speaking out about design -- it's just something I always did without much pride. A hobby, if you will. So, it's going to be quite the challenge for me to even rant about the problems or express some of the inner workings of design and my creative process. It's just something I did, no matter how frustrated I personally got, and pushed through it.

Yeah, this is hard already.

Anyway, I guess I'm going to start this entry off by speaking about the upcoming requirements of Tech class -- learning Flash and Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver can wait, so let's talk about Flash.

I'm excited to learn about it, since it's something I always wanted to incorporate into my web design, but ultimately very intimidated. The program itself seems very... busy. Frame by frame, objects, new tools and functions -- it's a lot to take in. However, I am determined to learn the program as if it's Illustrator and Photoshop.

It's just keeping that confidence when I can't get something working, is the problem.



  1. Jasmine! You are the greatest!!! We will learn together and Photo Shop and Illustrator was a great class.

  2. I have no doubt you will excel in Flash just as you have in Illustrator and Photoshop. You will get out of this class just what you put into it and so far you have done very well!

  3. Jasmine,
    I guess we are kind of in the same boat, mostly cause we are learning this new program together and also because we both do web design and graphics. Just by your personality I can tell you will go far in this, and soon I will be asking you questions.

  4. Nice to meet you jazzy!! hope you don't mind me saying that. so far i love your personality, and the bubbly spirit that follows. i'm definitely gonna need the information on the stuff i don't know about, so you seem like the perfect candidate!!

  5. You will learn these programs, I am sure of it. They get easy to memorize. Flash, for me, was difficult to learn. It always caused me problems, and I couldn't figure out how to fix it. But after a while in it, I figured the basics of it. You will do great.

  6. Hello I would like to say that I like your page and the background that you pick for your page I can see the connection with your personal character. just stay focus and be strong minded and i'm sure you will be very successful in life.
