Growth wise, I think the stuff I make now, or a least hopefully, is a lot more clean and asthetically pleasing, especially as I got to know illustator. ( a personal favorite of the year for me was my font poster) As for improvement, I definitely still have a lot of learning to do. I struggle a lot when it to aysemtric design, and I also have a lot of trouble when it comes to color. I'm not very good at doing projects timed/in a short amount of time either.
I have already started using what I've learned in this class. It helps me not only to recognize bad design in the world around me, but also to ensure that things I create outside of class, whether it be a powerpoint presentation or a party invitation, follow the principles of good design and look halfway decent. I think I'll carry what I've learned in this class probably with me for the rest of my life
