You were to print and upload to your Flickr account your card assignment design. You were to design both a FRONT and BACK. Below are some designs that were good.

Finish Card Assignment – 5/7

Today you have to work on your senior graduation design assignment. Here are a few things to remember:

  • You don’t have to edit the photos themselves unless you really want to.
  • Make sure to use Leading and Tracking, you’ll see a difference in your design.
  • No more than 3 font families total.
  • You may NOT use any of the designs that are posted on this website during your design process.
  • Watch your colors.

Most importantly. The assignment is due when you walk out the door TODAY!!


Need a font? I’ll show you how to install today.


Overlays (or also called watermarks) and how they work with your design. Below are clouds that can be used in designing if your sky looks bad.

Some overlays are NOT text.

However most overlays are not and they are NOT free.
