What do I Actually do at Work?

Some of you reading this post may know, that for the past 3 years I have been working at a local sign designers. We cater mainly for small businesses, although we also deal with the occasional larger contract from London Underground or London City Airport. I figured it was about time that I uploaded a…

Visual Proposal Presentation

I have successfully handed in and finished my Development of Ideas & Concepts module. This consisted of researching into my chosen project, which you all know by now to be wayfinding within airports, more specifically BAA Heathrow. I was very happy with the way this whole first module turned out, there was a lot more…

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 16

Today was a successful day, completely finished off my proposal and rationale, although i didnt get to do any dry run of my presentation. I should hopefully be doing this on the Monday, ready for hand in on the Tuesday. Not too much else to discuss about today, except now I am going to take…

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 15

Another day of just getting down and dirty with the work!

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 11

Hey guys, it’s been quite a good weekend looking into what I can do for the presentation, and today was equally productive in regards to a more theory side of the practical project. I’ve decided that I’m going to be doing a live power point, with me discussing each section, as my presentation method. I feel quite strong…

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 10

Today was quite interesting. Began with a meeting which put down all the relevant dates for both the essay and development of ideas modules. I came out of it feeling rather nervous and demoralized, not because I haven’t done anything, but because I know I have lots and lots still left to do. However, I…
