    Character Resume

    by

    For this assignment, I had to create a resume for my created character of Buck Smith. It was actually quite easier than I expected because I just used the template that I already had for my own resume still saved on my computer.

    This week I have learned a lot about design. Whether it be from reading Massimo Vignelli’s “The Vignelli Canon” or by completing the earlier assignment of creating a DesignBlitz.

    DesignBlitz

    by
