About the November 29, 2011 Class Session

Good work on your Final Projects on Tuesday. My intention was that all of you would have already written your body copy and had your imagery scanned before the start of class last week so you could immediately start on the production of your InDesign portion of your Final Project. I hope you will be able to spend enough time out of class in order to get caught up. Ideally you should have the project fairly well finished on Tuesday and be working on minor adjustment during class. We’ll see how it goes.
