I made an unforgivable and embarrassing grammatical error in my last image
Good photos of your work is as important as the work itself
See too many good projects brought down by poor photography
What I produce from my month of work experience. I worked at an architect firm and part time at a graphic design studio, I am still working one day a week there whilst I’m at university. At the architect firm I was basically an artworker, not that exciting. But whilst it was a bit repetitive it allowed me to observe how they run a business and how their external designer communicates with them. My second placement was at Karoshi, a multi discipline graphic design team. Basically, two cool guys who know their shit. I actually found them through Tumblr, so I guess my blog serves more of a purpose than I first imagined. I am enjoying working with them and learning a lot.
As for the images, they show my diary and record of my events on my work experience, a small slip to hold my 1000 word report and my placement’s feedback and I also did some information design based on the songs I listened two during my commute. I did this because I had quite a bit of downtime and commuting is a pain in the arse, but must be done.
I had to present this to my tutor along with a ten minute presentation about what I did and learnt. Tutor loved my poster and presentation, but I still only got a mid-ranged 2:1.
Content, but confused.
