"So many promo packages!" writes Emily Rose regarding her practicum at Production Road working under the owner of Chairman Ting Industries Inc., Carson Ting. Emily never thought she’d be part of an email chain with over 100 emails, working on a project from all different countries and different timezones!
Her practicum included designing icons to be animated, an album cover, learning different ways to apply her illustrations and even transferring domain names for a website client.
Check out Emily's practicum story!
This project was a collaboration between Communications 190 writing class and IDES 235 Illustration class. Comm 190 writers were paired with an IDES 235 illustrator to design an illustration that would visually introduce the story in a magazine. The results were impressive, and the students of both classes really enjoyed the collaborative development.
Shown above: How I Weave Reconciliation written by Cohen Isberg and illustrated by Aidan Zecchel.
