Katie Pickard, owner of Rocky River’s Paper Trails, visited RRMS yesterday in Matt England’s 8th grade Technology INC class where students create a mock company to try to sell a product or service. The students design the store layout, the product, a website to advertise, a radio commercial, and stationery including a business card. Katie discussed with the class the importance of color, design, and leaving a good first impression. She brought in many “real world” samples and ideas to make this a valuable and meaningful experience for the students. Katie not only helped the students with their designs, but also offered to print the students’ final business cards in her shop!
