Computing - Design Your Own Email Sign-Off

HOME LEARNING - SUMMER TERM WEEK 11

CREATE YOUR OWN EMAIL SIGN-OFF 'SIGNATURE'

Okay, something totally different this week!

 

Some of you will have noticed that I have started adding a 'signature sign-off' at the end of my emails:

 

Mr T / Jeff Turner

 

><(((º>`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.·´¯`·...¸><(((º>¸.

·´¯`·.¸. , . .·´¯`·.. ><(((º>`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸.·´¯`·...¸><(((º>

 

This was created just by using the keyboard and all the different characters it can produce. I then saved it in my email to attach at the end of anything I send (it took a while to make ... so lovely just to press a button!).

 

Different fonts look slightly different on the screen, so you may wish to play with a few.

 

There are also lots of extra SYMBOLS you can use (the eye of my fish is the 'degrees' sign for temperature). You can find these in Word by clicking on the INSERT tab top, then selecting SYMBOLS at the end. There are lots of weird and wonderful ones to use for your creations.

 

TASK - CREATE YOUR OWN EMAIL SIGN OFF SIGNATURE PICTURE 

Look at the examples below for creatures and animals you can make using your keyboard characters.

 

Try a few out. Remember they may need to be 'built' over 2 or 3 lines (mine is on two) ... so use the 'return' button to drop to next line and carry on.

 

If you can, either create a brand new idea ... or (like I did, to be fair!) adapt and change one to be your own unique design.

 

Make sure you save it, then copy/paste it to your class teacher to show off your skills.

 

If you can, find the part of your (or your parent's) email and set it up as their / your 'signature'.
