The Final Exam Period!

Happy last Design 1 class!!

Things to note:
1. Your grades are done in Skyward. See me with any questions.
2. Raul, Brandon, Preston, Ashley, Kyle and Gabe owe me a tabloid printout of their Principle poster mockup. Due by the end of class. It is a grade in Skyward... right now there is no grade there for you.
3. Extra credit points will go to you if you create something awesome with the Blend tool we learned last week and share it HERE.

Feel free to print out work if you want.

IMPORTANT!
Your H Drive will be DELETED this summer. If you want to keep any Design work (especially if you are taking Design 2) you should upload work to your Google Drive now.
You can upload entire Folders at a time.
Hit the NEW button in the top left and choose "Folder upload" instead of "File upload".
Give it some time!!!

Even though it doesn't feel like summer, have a good one!
