Last Class Before Finals!

Whether or not you realize it, tonight is the last working class session before our Final, Dec. 15th from 6pm to 8pm. Be sure to come to class prepared with all the files you intend to use in your “book,” your final project. That is, everything that you have done this semester, or other suitable portfolio work.

If you have discussed an alternative project with me, be sure to bring all the files you will need for that project.

We’ll review the book requirements and I’ll work with each of you to help you prepare your book for printing.

Lecture starts at 6:15pm. Don’t be late…you’ll need all the time you can get to work on this project. It CAN be done!

This is a critically important class for students in graphic design, journalism, photography, art, humanties, or anyone who finds the need to publish.

Hurry and sign up now to take this production-oriented design class that starts in the January 2011 spring semester at Moorpark College. You need to register and pay for this class in the next two weeks to assure your place before it fills up!

Some students have reported difficulties registering online due to the possible lack of a pre-requiste. This obstacle can be overcome by getting a waiver obtained and signed by either Nancy Haberman (Wednesday, Com 109, 6pm), Svetlana Kasolovic (Com bldg.), or the department chair, Steve Callis in Photo/Humanities, or John Grzywacz-Gray Photo/Humanities.


Students will choose their final projects from a myriad of options including a printed, bound book, an e-book, a magazine, a newletter, a calendar, deck of cards or a CD or DVD with an enclosed booklet. The semester consists of a series of lectures, hands-on exercises and multiple page projects designed to present the past, present and explore the cutting edge of publication design, as well as the design and production features of Adobe InDesign CS5 and Adobe Acrobat.
