Flier

Date:

Course/Instructor:w

Comm 130 Section 06/Joel Judkins

Program(s)/Tools:
Adobe InDesign

Objectives:
Create a Flier for an event.

Process:

I used InDesign to create this flier. I was looking for something repetitive to use
so I went with boxes which is why they appear in multiple places multiple times
on the flier. I emphasized graduate so that it stuck out from the rest of the flier
to catch the attention of the audience. I was given the image, logo and content
for this flier.
