Design/History Reflection

We were asked to create a documentary in which will inform the CDNIS grade 10 parents about a certain topic of Hong Kong history, in our case it was the Kowloon Walled City. My group consists of Nicole, Katrina and Rachel and I feel that our documentary has met all the specified design requirements.

I learnt a lot about how to use Adobe In Design. I learnt things such as how to create a shape, how to add the current page numbers, how to insert a photo, how to type on a path, how to mask a photo…continue reading →
