Columbus Tae Kwon Do was my customer for my customer Wordpress blog. The instructor needed a way to let students know about upcoming test times/tournament dates, and to share photos and information of tournaments and events. He also wanted to be able to share with other SWAT members information, photos, and upcoming events/tournaments. The target audience is the Columbus Kansas area, current students of Columbus Tae Kwon Do, ages 15-40, the middle class, and SWAT (South West Association of Tournaments) members.
I used the Columbus Tae Kwon Do logo with the blue from the logo for the background. Keeping it simple by using black text on white background in the text area makes it easy to read. The gadgets used were image, which is nice to see what the instructor looks like first thing. Search, used if a student is looking for a partial part of a post. Recent posts and the archives, good for looking at previous posts. The Blogroll, here I linked the SWAT member home page and Columbus Tae Kwon Do's Website. Students will most likely be needing acess to both these websites. Email Subscription, lets students know when their instructor updates the blog. I thought it would be neat to have a calendar so I put that on there. Blog Stats to show how many have looked at this blog, at this time it is at an impressive 286.

I was able to generate custom Microsoft QR tags for Freedom Worship Center's website, and my own personal website. I followed the instructions given to me on Microsoft tag's website. I generated the tag, then used Illustrator to place the the tag and image together.

Threvs website for Team 2. Each of our team members was assigned to do an individual page of one person in the this photo, with the color schemes provided by them. I did Lauren Vaughan's page. My major roll in this team project was the portfolios for each individual page. I knew somewhat how to do this, and when the project was finished I was a pro. I also was in charge of keeping the paperwork (wireframes, client interview, etc) in a safe place, so when we needed them we would have them to use. I learned that you can't have CSS on the entire website if you plan on changing color schemes. We had to have CSS for each individual page. This caused us a lot of problems since we didn't know this in the beginning. I would like to learn more about CSS and how to use it better. Working on a team is hard. Everyone has different schedules, and its almost impossible to get everyone together outside of class. Our client, team two, were great to work with. They gave us the photos, content, and colors to use, and I had fun putting together their portfolios for them.

Salvation Army Angel Tree inspired me. I decided to create an Angel Tree for the poster I did in my Digital File preparation class last semester. I wanted an angel somewhere on the tree since that is the name of the tree, so I replaced the star with an angel. I did all of my design in Illustrator except for the Salvation Army logo, which was a scanned image. The planning process and my finial project of the Angel Tree can be viewed on this blog on the Monday, December 13th 2010 post.

In GIT-432 Multimedia Authoring, we each created a video showing footage of Kansas Technology Center's Open House. My topic was Manufacturing Engineering Technology at KCT's Open house. This includes the Formula SAE, the Waterjet cutter, and the CNC Milling machine.
