University Semester 1 – Review

Semester 1 got off to a very good and active start, not to say I couldn’t have done much more, but generally I am very pleased with how I performed, acted and got on with the work/tasks at hand. I’d say the two hardest things within this semester were; firstly getting the initial proposal started…

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 19

Today, although focusing mainly on my essay work, I had a couple of ideas that jumped into my mind that I quickly wrote down in my book. I then developed them further when i got home. They were more to do with layout as opposed to anything else. With inspiration being taken from Schiphol airport…

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 18

Again, today was just working on my essay, as it will be for the next couple of weeks. Although yesterday I did receive the brief for the next practical module. The brief basically begins the next module, because I had already written my own brief for the module. It will be interesting to get started…

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 17

This is my first day back from my 2 weeks off timetable, that’s why there hasn’t been any day-by-day posts. Since my last module was handed in, the main task was to finish my essay in good time, ready for a 12th December hand in. This year I really need to push the essay as…

I was very happy with the way this whole first module turned out, there was a lot more…

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 15

Another day of just getting down and dirty with the work! I’ve now completed my rough presentation ready for tomorrow, i’ve also printed off some quick prompt cards, which will make it flow a lot better, and i wont need to look at the screen, unless i’m talking about the examples. Managed to get my…

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 13

Today was, very much, another type orientated day. A little bit of sketch book work, followed up by some illustrator to smooth off those curves and realise the sketches in digital form. I’ve noticed a large improvement in my ability to do quick sketches of letter forms (primarily the letter “a”) just to get my…
