 +The school shut-down presents some challenges for this project, since you don't have access to on-campus computers. However, there are a few really good options:
 +
 +1) Download Photoshop, Indesign, etc. to your home computer. (Best if you have a relatively new machine, one you use for gaming etc. Did you enjoy the broadside project and feel confident using the software? ) https://​www.iup.edu/​itsupportcenter/​content-repository/​enterprise-services/​software-license-administration/​adobe-creative-cloud/  ​
 +
 +2) Download a simple, free open-source graphic design tool like [[https://​www.iup.edu/​itsupportcenter/​content-repository/​enterprise-services/​software-license-administration/​adobe-creative-cloud/​|GNU Image]] or [[https://​www.scribus.net/​]]. ​ Best if you enjoy learning a new tool and have an older, slower Mac, Windows, or Linux machine. ​
 +
 +3) Explore a web based design tool like Figma https://​www.figma.com/​graphic-design-tool/​
 +
 +4) Make a physical book, using typewriter, hand-inking,​ and paste-up. (Old school) Then photograph it.
