Being a first time user to Tweetdeck I found that it is an extremely useful and convenient source to schedule when your tweets go out. The tweets below are scheduled at appropriate times of what is taking place at school and mentions being a graphic designer. This will be extremely useful in my future career if I ever have to do social media for whatever company I will be working for and it will also help with my timing of the tweets if I’m too busy to tweet something at that time.
This was also such an easy system to use, it was pretty much as easy as doing an actual tweet. All that I had to was go to to the new tweet icon and then you could write your tweet out and then you could pick the date and time when the Tweet would be displayed. I think this site will not only be a convenience in my work life but my personal life as well.

I really enjoyed creating my personal brand through a business card because being a Graphic Design Major we are constantly using InDesign so it was cool being able to use the software for a different class. I also think having a business card and knowing how to make them will be extremely beneficial when applying for jobs and branding yourself to a company.
My process of making the business card was first making a personal logo, and the incorporating that into the business card. I also wanted it to coincide with my resume so I used the same colors and shapes that I used on my resume. I also used the font Futura in both my resume and business card. I wanted to show my personal brand by stating that I’m a graphic designer and by showing that I’m proficient in InDesign and Illustrator by designing my own personal logo.
