Design Week 1

Last week, due to some issues at the Western Carolinian, we found ourselves without a designer for the newspaper, and an issue needing designing, so my coworker Jamie North and I stepped up to the task.

Both of us had some experience with InDesign CS6, so between the two of us, I think we did a really good job with designing everything for the paper.

We made a few rather entertaining errors when we were typing in headlines, and I even spelled my own name wrong in one of my photo credits! (Preflight, of course. We fixed everything that we could find.) Accidentally shutting the computers down a few times also definitely

Overall, while I spent a lot more time staring at an In Design file than I really wanted to this weekend, we actually had a lot of fun working together and helping each other out with the paper, and I couldn’t have asked for a better companion for the roughly twelve hours of work that we ended up putting in this weekend.  So here’s to great coworkers and (hopefully) a great paper, to be distributed on Friday, September 13th!
