No class (Inauguration Day)

January 20

Start Dear data

The university is closed for Inauguration Day, so we won’t meet today. If you’d like, you can meet with me to talk about your interests and what you can expect this semester (book an appointment on Calendly).



There’s reading due for next class. It’s on the page for next class.

Illustrator tutorials

In this course, you’ll need moderately strong skills with Illustrator or another vector drawing tool. If you need to learn Illustrator, start working through the Illustrator essentials course on LinkedIn Learning. I’ve compiled a list of the most important tutorials. You’ll need to be using Illustrator by Week 05.
