For my course I must keep a blog up to date. I’ll write about the things I’ve learned and experienced during the classes.

Bye Bye LCC

So after three years I’ve finally handed in my last project. I have now ended my studies and have finished the BA DGC course with an Upper Class Second Honours or 2.1

The beginning of my Final Major Project

For our Final Major Project we’ve had to create a formal proposal. If you want to know what Blythe and I will be doing, check out our proposal.

You can download it as well.

 

Back to school!

After three internships this summer—with Uscreates, Random House Children’s Publishers, and SHOWstudio—I have resumed my academic studies at the London College of Communication.

I’m studying BA (Hons) Design for Graphic Communication (Top-Up).

Graduated from my FdA

I just graduated from my current course: FdA Design for Graphic Communication, with a Merit-Plus.

To my greatest surprise my best grades were in academic writing, averaging an A-.

Currently I am attending Bridging Studies, and will top-up with a BA in Design for Graphic Communication, starting in October 2013.

Introducing Project 2

Last week Project 2 started. The project started by showing each other our audition videos. Based on these videos we needed to form groups.

From the start of the project I intended to form a group with members who have an opposite skill set to mine. This actually didn’t happen. In the end I formed a group with Alex Lloyd, Hasan Gözlügöl, Theo Mayers, and Joana Fernandes.

Now a very quick summary of the project:

Your subject is ‘water’. Research in to this subject and find issues. Keep researching and exploring, until you have a very vast amount of information. After this it is time to start working on your ideas, create prototypes, designs, pitch, etc.

Over the weeks you will have to continue presenting your work, and the project is due in 5 weeks (now actually 4) during Green Week at LCC.

For this project we need to document our process, and we’ve had to set up a blog to do this. Please check it out.

Audition video about yourself

Over our Christmas break we were supposed to create an audition video about yourself. Based on these videos other students will pick their members for a group based project. We are even working with students of the GMD course, whom I don’t know (yet). Continue reading “Audition video about yourself” »
