To introduce yourself to Manchester School of Art staff, and your fellow students we’d like to prepare a simple poster that outlines what you currently do, and what you hope to get out of joining us on as a Postgraduate student.
A one-sentence, simple summer project - I like it.
This is my second blog post and since then I have finished the one-sentence task and been finding experimenting with some creative ways to boost my CHESYGN social media. I have been having a lot of fun showing 'work-in-progress' photos and short time-lapsed videos. I really like this idea because no matter how great the outcome of a project may be, the audience may never truly no how much effort goes into it.
Moving on, as I mentioned I finished the poster and here is the final result:
This kind of poster is totally my style and I feel the branding of CHESYGN truly shines through. I like to have a full page, especially when I'm sketching: call-outs, rough sketching, refined, mixed media all in one space. Although this may seem sporadic, as a natural scatterbrain this is how I love to work. When I have an idea, whether it be on the train, bus, sitting on my sofa or anywhere in fact, I have to note it down, quickly, otherwise I will loose it. So often I will be starting a page with one concept or idea and think of five or so more in the process so that by the end of it my one-idea devoted page has transformed into a series. I know plenty of designers that like one clean page per design, which is fantastic, but definitely not me.
This poster is more focused on what I currently do or have done rather than what I hope to get out of the masters. The reason for this, and I hope I'm right, is that I want to speak about this. I am you textbook introvert and so when it first came to public speaking I found it more than a little nerve-wrecking. However, as I have grown, completed upwards of 10 or so presentations per year, worked in a few different jobs I have found that I enjoy speaking to an audience. It was definitely a learning curve and would always practice my presentations a few times beforehand in addition to being equipt with brightly coloured flash cards that I would look at once and forget I had because I was on a role. I'm planning to do this with my hopes for the masters but I will give you a brief 'flash-card-bullet-pointed' summary:
Thank you for reading if you have and if you haven't then you couldn't be reading this sentence so you input is, therefore, redundant.
looking for me?
