Designed some covers for my sketchbooks. Here are the first two as per the units.
Yesterday, was the start of lectures and my first two units. Both have set assignments, and certain time lengths.
The first, is a unit named ‘Developing Design Practice’ which is a six week unit, where at the end of it I will have a handmade / designed book. Even though the course work seems heavy, I feel this will be an enjoyable unit and one that I have been looking forward to since the end of the last academic year.
The second unit, is an option that I chose at the end of my first year, ‘Professional Practice : Live Design Briefs’ this entails a selection of assigned briefs for clients. The first, is for a company called ‘Fenner Paper’ who supply 100% recycled papers. The task is to design a poster, in 7 weeks, convincing the people about the power of the poster. This is going to be interesting, as it’s fully open to what ever I (And my course mates) want to do. We can either work individually, or in teams of 2.
I know for a fact, that this unit will run over the whole year, AND we (as in myself and my course mates) will be participating in the YCN awards, with a choice of many live briefs from them.
I believe that this year is going to challenge me in ways, that I had never thought of before. I can’t wait to see what I can come up with.
