Joanne Healy, School of Education, likes the banners I make. Here's the latest batch... her requests are fairly open-ended, so I can find the right mood to fit the need. Our department has access to a Shutterstock account. That and regular CC0 images make creating banners easier.
Hey all! I've been slack over the past few years in learning Adobe Illustrator. I LOVED Fireworks... WHY, OH WHY.... anyhow.
