During my last year at SDSU I joined the illustrious staff at the Daily Aztec, one of the few daily college newspaper publications left in the nation. It gave me a chance to get a hands-on view of designing. I learned how to work with my fellow designers, collaborating on certain tasks and asking for help when I was stuck in a layout. I also learned how to work with editors, our clients of a sort. I learned how important it is to work as a team and to constantly keep each other informed, as things can easily get lost in translation in a buzzing office where the paper needs to go out the next day. This also taught me how to work on a tight schedule, and to make sure that the process of creating the paper came along smoothly.
