Yesterday I finished the Visual Fundamentals class. Not sure why it was so tough for me, but glad it is done, and I can understand better how a PSD comes together. Came up with the above logo (?? I think? made it when i was trying to work on the “simple icon” but I think it’s really more of a logo), and also the actual site icon that is showing up in the browser tab. Super duper cheers to K. at Skillcrush, who helped me to get the icon to a point where I felt like I could move on, and for saying nice things about it.
Kudos as well to Adobe Illustrator for letting me have ONE MORE DAY in the free trial; was pretty sure the trial was done but everything was loading up ok – started to feel like, ok, I can still do what I need to do, when a screen popped up saying the trial was over. Unnnggghhh. But it had a handy button that said “extend trial” and so I clicked on that and was granted one last day. Whew.
Oh, and the Skillcrush folks managed to get me squared away with my push to Github. Still not entirely clear on how I went astray, but hope to keep creating branches, staging and committing them, merging them and then pushing to Github so I can get lots more practice.
