Completed, finished, done. The last assignment of PR Pubs has been finished and turned in. Now it is time to reflect on all the wonderful and horrible things that I experienced this semester in PR Pubs.
Looking back on my blog posts at the beginning, I was clearly nervous and not sure how I would be at the graphic design side of PR. I had zero confidence in myself to be able to do this type of work and really, I didn’t want to do this side of PR. I have always been more interested in the writing, public speaking and social media side of PR.
As the semester went on, my confidence grew and I realized that I could do it and that I also really did enjoy working with the new applications that we used. I tend to not enjoy things as much when I can’t figure something out quickly because I normally can. PR Pubs was not one of those things and so it took me a while to enjoy it.
I believe the turning point for me during the semester was when we used Canva because that was a site I had used before and I finally felt comfortable in the class. From that point on, my outlook on the class changed and I began to come in more confident about my projects and I began to like the completed projects.
My favorite project that I did was the video interview with Erin. I was really proud of how it turned out and I really enjoyed the process of making it. I felt confident the whole time and saw myself grow through that project. Here is the link if you haven’t seen it yet.
Overall, I felt I grew a lot through this class. This was the first time I have ever used Adobe suite applications. I now have a better understanding of them and can do the basics of each application we used. I feel more confident in my design abilities and am excited to see where I go in the future and how these new skills will benefit me.
Here is my final PR Pubs project to show you a timeline of this semester in PR Pubs through emojis:
