Art and Design Degree Show
It’s that time of the year already, the degree show which showcased last night and is on for a week, definitely worth going to see. When I first went to the degree show three years ago before I started my degree I was in awe at the amazing work produced by all the students and kept thinking how will I ever be able to do something this good. But three hard years later, the work is just as good. Everyone should be really pleased with themselves as the work is outstanding and has shown me that if you work hard enough you can achieve anything.
This may be the end of my degree but the start of many great things.
Good luck to all my fellow graphic designers… The world is now your oyster :)
Few Photos from my visit to the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham which was a great experience as they have so many different types of fish to see and as a fish lover, I really enjoyed myself :)
The pictures are a bit dark but the place was really dark and you’re not allowed to use a flash but definitely worth a visit.
After getting quotes close to £300 for my portfolio I decided to make my own. The box has been made out of wood and spray painted and the front cover from plastic which has been laser cut then slotted into the wood frame. This did take some time but a lot cheaper than the ones I saw on-line and also made exactly how I wanted. This will do me for now till I decide to make another one, and well it would not be me without a hint of pink, subtle but adds the finishing touch. Very pleased with the final piece.
Typography has definitely got to be my new found love. As most my recent projects have been based around typography I have learnt so much about it and there is a lot to know!! Very enlightening though as there is so much more to type than letters and the way they look. A documentary I recently watched about Helvetica is a must watch for any typography lovers out there, quite long but very interesting. Didn’t realise how much that typeface is used around the world.
The ISTD light picture was done using a four second shutter speed and torch. I then used this image as my project logo by inverting it and editing it to make the letters a bit more legible. This technique is so fun and the results are always so different and exciting, definitely something for you to try if you haven’t already.
