A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
Busy studios happening in the past six weeks has left me with no choice but to take a few snaps on my crappy phone. First off exhibition design is coming along very well as we’re beginning to go on about our weekly workshops with designer duo Ariel and Andrea from http://www.pandarosa.net/. It’s a huge privilege to have these guys mentor us along the way as they know what it takes to build a successful exhibition no matter the size of space, the form, the location, the mediums. Our aim is to establish a theme with ideas that will work around a space and not let the space shape our idea. You might be confused as to what we’re trying to gain out of this event and that is to inform our audience (designers, dean, industries, alumni…) what exactly a communication designer is and I’ll tell you for sure that communication design and graphic design aren’t the same thing. This week saw our first workshop where we had to take photos of the exterior and interior of our campus and make dioramas out of all of our photographs to get a sense of space, shape and form.
Secondly our first semester 2 assignment was due this morning which was a paper project designed to promote BJ Ball’s YUPO paper range. Only one design will be selected and used as promotional material for the BJ Ball papers group. Everyone had great concepts that were executed perfectly, I wish i could’ve taken more photos, there were just too many of them and the lecturers rushed us out of the room!
