Creativity is no longer an elective, it's the future.  In a recent survey, 85% of people agreed that creative thinking is critical for problem solving in their career.* And with the challenges the world is facing today in our global economy, in our environment, and in social issues, the need for creative ideas has never been greater.

Creating Type Magic in Photoshop

Posted on Sep 23, 2014 by Dawn Bradley Last Activity on Sep 23, 2014

This lesson explores intermediate type modifications. Once I teach this lesson, I make students shape or adjust their type in some way. I usually demonstrate the steps given. After the lesson is over, I have students create a second document using another word(s) like the name of our school or our mascot. They must do the same steps without my help. They may ask their neighbors for help during this time. I have them to give their neighbor feedback on his/her type changes. Then they have to make a suggestion on how to do it differently. We may repeat this type of lesson several times until I feel comfortable with their skills.  They will do an application test to demonstrate their skills without notes or help from neighbors.
