  • Assignment review

    • Assignment review: check Canvas for feedback on skill check 2; incorporate feedback from both skill check 1 and skill check 2 into final design brief

      • Documents can be Word or PDF. No Pages.
      • If you are using Word365, Google or Dropbox, please print/save as a PDF and attach that rather than share the document with me.
