For
Sessions College for Professional Design

I started Sessions College for Professional Design on January 7th, 2019, and Graduated with an Undergraduate Certificate in Web Design in April of 2020.
This is a portfolio of my work while attending Sessions and some of my work now as a Freelance Web Designer.

Photoshop 1

I will start with one of my favorite classes, “Photoshop”. When I first tried working with Photoshop before I attended Sessions, It was confusing and complicated. I didn’t understand even the basics. I would find tutorials and that helped a great deal, but I wanted my work to look more professional. After I attended the Photoshop 1 course, I have a great deal more understanding of the platform and my work has improved greatly. Not all of my work was great in the beginning, as a matter of fact, some were just awful but that’s how you learn. The critiques from other students and the instructor is a great help on improving your work.

Illustrator

As with Photoshop, I had basic skills with Illustrator before taking the course at Sessions. I currently use Illustrator and Photoshop a great deal in my freelance career. Enhancing images, logos, banners, creating web design mockups, site icons, and infographics just to name a few.

HTML-CSS-JavaScript-BootStrap

The Following are links to websites created from my HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and BootStrap courses. I enjoyed these classes the most and use the knowledge I gained from these classes in my freelance career. With the use of website building platforms for WordPress, I don’t hard code websites as I did in 2017 before I started Sessions College. I do still use HTML and CSS in styling some of the sites I build in WordPress, and I use JavaScript snippets. I do still hard code landing pages for marketing purposes and find practicing my code skills is a must. Thanks, Piper!
