I didn't create this. I got it at an SREB conference I went to, but I find it really useful. I'm attaching the template that I adapted, as well as the original editable file. I hope you all find it useful.
I found extremely useful to present to my InDesign students this microsite about typography, InDesign, fonts and their features.

I can't remember but I think I got the University of Washington link from Judy Durkee. I get a lot of stuff from her. She is an AMAZING resource. Thanks Judy!. I also use the article from the Harvard Law Review on Shephard Fairey and the Hope Poster case. They all know the work and the discussion over whether it's a copyright violation or not can be really interesting. It's not as tough a read as you might think and I break up the kids into partners, assign them a section, do a partner read and then report back. IT's easier to scaffold that way. There is an NYT article online that then describes the outcome of the trial.

I am trying to figure out what order is the best way to learn everything Adobe. I have started with Photoshop, Illustrator, and In Design. Where should I go next, and what is the best way to go about it if I don't have the ability to drive to a school and take classroom classes. Thank you in advance, as I want to learn every one of the Adobe products I subscribe to in depth. I am curious the recommended learning order.DanielCalderone514@gmail.com

Project Creek Watch, started in the Fall of 1994, is a long term scientific study of the Arroyo Del Valle "Creek" located in the city of Pleasanton, California.
This is a great forum to see what discussions are current in the industry. As there is a paradigm shift and printing is becoming more industrialised and the demand for creatives to give print ready files to the printer it is important for teachers and trainers to know what the industry considers to be the current best practices, and pitfalls.
