Hello, children, and welcome to this week’s class review written by me, starring me. This week-in-review we focused on budget cuts, an iconic clap back, Balsamiq, and Fiverr.
Broke with Expensive Taste?
Turns out Azealia Banks isn’t the only millionaire that seems to be struggling in the financial department. After several budget cuts in the form of great professors and voicemail (really Jan?), you’d think the School-That-Must-Not-Be-Named would be balling, right? Wrong. As if diminishing the value of some of the degrees offered at the school wasn’t enough, the school announced $8 million worth of budget cuts for 2017-2018. But this is where it get messy. And I mean Britney Spears head shaving in a dirty barber spot messy. The $8 million projection is no longer that. It’s now….
Clutch your pearls, girls and boys.
If You’re Happy and You Know it, Clap Back.
Clapping back is an art, and like most skills, it takes time to perfect. Unless you’re Afnan. Then you just naturally know how to effortlessly skull-drag your alma mater.
I couldn’t find the tweet, so I’m going to assume the school budget cut that, too.
I would challenge all of you to speak up and clap back, but I don’t want any of you to be called unprofessional by a redhead and a “friend.” I take that crown and wear it proudly. How’s that paper coming along, again? Oh, still in the beginning stages? Thought so.
If you Like it Then You Shoulda got another packet of Balsamiq because now you don’t have enough for all of that salad you put on your plate. Like, gosh. What a waste. Wait, don’t throw that away. You betta eat all of it.
Ah, Balsamiq. Just when you thought building a website was difficult, whabam, now you have to build the plan for the website you’re struggling to form. But have no fear as Balsamiq is here. A wireframe is essentially a blueprint for a website, app, etc. With Balsamiq, you’re able to drag and drop elements to plan out that website you’re not sure about. Want your website to look like 18 year old Lindsay Lohan pre-crack, but it looks like 31 year old Lindsay Lohan post-heroin who really looks 50? Then use Balsamiq! Let’s all be youthful!
Fiverr, Fiverr! (to be read in the Sister, Sister theme song)
You thought building a website was hard? Whew, child. Try finding a graphic designer with good designs who will give you no more than 2 logo for $5. And yes, that’s 2 logo with no s because that’s how intense these designers are. They’re literally like, “screw the plurals, give me the money, and don’t ask or expect much.”
Overall, class was very eventful. We are now headed into analyzing aka stalking aka keeping tabs on competing agencies in the form of SWOT analyses.
