A day of solid assessment training for experts in the Graphic Design Worldskills workshop and test project discussions for Day 4.

Highlights included going through and revising the Skill Management Plan, setting a timed agenda and talking about skill specific details relating to:

  • Bleed (it shouldn’t extend or overwhelm)
  • Using Acrobat to check Layers, Overprint, Dielines, Print Production Spot Colours and ICC Profiles
  • Illustration spot colours and separation previews
  • Colour bars
  • Die fold, glue and cut lines in & outside the artwork area
  • Resolution effective PPI and DPI
  • Trapping, and
  • The sophisticated competitor hallmarks

Pre competition artwork was uploaded (big thanks to Kezia Albores, Diploma North Metro TAFE student for her submission). Stay tuned until C4 for that outcome.
