UX Reflective Journaling Week 5

UX Reflective Journaling Week 5

We have arrived! Welcome to week five. As a designer the remaining the module and weeks feel a bit more familiar and safe for me. This week covered layout and grids. I felt good about the materials and was actually pleasantly surprised by the supplemental reading this week. It was very interesting and I got to learn a little more about the history of grids and how they are used in design as early as the Rennaissance.

I liked the amount of reading that we had as well, it didn’t feel as heavy and it gave me a little more time to absorb the information. I look forward to next week’s typography topic. Many designers including myself that started during the digital age of design, tend to be less comfortable with advanced typography. I think this is a due to us not having to hand kern or layout print documents, so maybe the craft is being lost?
