For the next semester, I'm doing to create an action plan that will help me expand my skills using the Adobe software's I mentioned in my last blog post.
Long Term Goals
Over the Christmas break (when I have more free time), I'm gonna keep learning how to use Illustrator and After Effects as knowing how to use both of these software's is gonna help me in the long run when I apply for design jobs. I'm going to start small. For example, create short GIFs just so I get the feel of what After Effects is like and slowly develop my skills until I can comfortably create decent length animations. After Effects is my main software to learn as in the past, I have failed projects for not using After Effects as I didn't know how to use it.
Short Term Goals
One of my short term goals will be using Illustrator more when doing future projects. As I always use Photoshop, using Illustrator will expand my skills more and make my professional CV stand out showing that I can use multiple Adobe software's.
It's not only Adobe software's I need practise on. I also need to practise putting my ideas down on paper instead of always in my head and manage my time more efficiently. This is a thing that can effect my grades and if I get bad grades, I won't graduate.
Next semester, I will focus more on putting ideas down and not just sticking to one idea. I will also create more development work and document my design journey in more detail.
