Work Sample #1: www.20wells.org
I created this website in Virtual Enterprise to support our nonprofit, 20 Wells. On the website I helped to educate and inform those about the charity and why we support it. The steps i took to complete it included extensive hours of research and website designing. I retrieved videos, pictures, information, and the history of 20 Wells from numerous sources in order to ensure the best possible representation of the charity. The skills of website design and proper writing techniques are demonstrated in this work sample. These are skills i mainly learned while learning to navigate different website builders. I learned patience from this project. It taught me that hard work can really create something extraordinary. I never thought that I would be able to build a website.
Work Sample #2: www.pocket-paradise.com
I did not design this website, however, with a colaboration of help from the Virtual Enterprise class, I helped to provide what went onto the website. What i mean by this is that I helped provide the images and information that was displayed on the website. I helped to create photoshopped pocket designs as well as the actual logo of the company. The steps taken in order to complete this work included layering images, basic photoshop knowledge, team work, and long hours of editing. In order to complete this, I used and learned skills in photoshop to manipulate different Images and mold them into what looked best for the website. From this i learned how difficult photoshop can be and how many hours actually go into creating images for the website. I learned that not all of the hard work goes into just designing the website, but also in the little details of the images.
Work Sample #3: Pocket Paradise Commercial
I helped to create the Pocket Paradise commercial during my time in the Virtual Enterprise program. In the commercial we advertised our company and provided the viewer with an image of who we are and why our brand is valuable. The steps i took to help create this commercial was coming up with the actual concept of the commercial. I suggested the idea of the zooming in and out of the pocket in order to create a clean transition between scenes. I also helped recruit people to be in the commercial. I learned different advertising and marketing skills as well as how to build a story board. From this project the most valuable thing i learned was how crucial team work is. If we all weren't communicating properly, then none of this would have been executed.
