From June to November 2020, I worked as a content writer for Adobe's Make It Center. I wrote 62 tutorials aimed at high school and college students explaining how I use the Creative Cloud programs to create my illustrations, animations, and other media. Each piece also includes graphics to help readers follow along on their own computers. In the first six months, these tutorials earned almost 100,000 page views and five of them cracked into the Top 10 performing articles.
