The Altoona Campus Information Technology (IT) "Active Living" Project Team entered a new phase of the project which involved developing an 8-page, full-color, “Active Living” brochure that can be professionally printed and made available in a downloadable format for the Healthy Blair County Coalition’s website.
This step proved to be challenging for the students, as most of them had little to no previous experience in graphic design. The team didn’t let that stop them—after all, IT students are known for being problem-solvers! They determined what skills and software they’d need to use to do the job and went to work. After hours of experimentation (and lots of trial and error along the way), the team is getting closer to producing a final brochure for the project.
Click (touch), hold, and drag the slider left and right on the image below to see the original brochure and compare it to the proposed new design created by the Altoona Campus IT students.
Once the team finishes the brochure, they will present it to the "Active Living" Project Committee and await feedback. The students will make any requested changes and submit a revised version for another round of reviews. Once they receive final approval, they’ll prepare the design files and package them according to the specifications provided by a local printer. Once printed, the final piece will be distributed throughout Blair County.
