I had fun designing posters for Girls Rock Asheville. I wanted to make posters that reflect the energy, exuberance, and strength of the Girls Rock program. They are very busy, but I am hoping they are eye-catching and still clear about the information needed: what, where, when. I used Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator to make these designs.

I also had the pleasure of adding the music soundtrack to the promotional video for Girls Rock Asheville! For this I listened to a set of MP3 recordings from last year’s showcase concert. As I listened, I noted what section I liked best about the piece, and how I might use it in the video, which I received as a Quicktime video file. I made notes of what sections of the video needed music, and for how long, and then edited the tracks using Audacity. That was a first for me, and the process was fun and intuitive. I also edited some of the titles in the movie, as they needed to be changed, and I also boosted the existing recorded voice tracks, as they were too low. I used iMovie for this, and I was frustrated by the latest version, which is quite dumbed-down from previous years, where there were more sophisticated and specific controls. I’d really like to learn to use Adobe Premier, and learn video editing!
