The End of the Beginning


Photobucket
We got our results back yesterday, I was very happy and slightly surprised to receive a first! We also took down our degree show exhibition, signifying the end of our time as students. Here's to what comes next, best of luck to everybody on the course.

Moving House!


Photobucket
I'm downsizing and moving into a lovely little house with Kyle and Cat, we're going to have a studio room which I'll post some pictures of soon. Exciting times, hopefully things will continue to go well and I can pay the rent. While on that subject, on Monday the 6th I'm starting a month of freelance work in the Radiowaves office, looking forward to that!

19.6.09


Haven't updated in a while... Been really busy: finished my course at uni, finished all the promotional work for the end of year exhibition, it opens today at 6pm!

Other news, me and Kyle Bibby won a pitch against other third year students and some graduates from the last few years to design next years prospectus, really excited about this, going to be a really fun project and will make an awesome piece for our portfolios. Also me and Cat Wickes have designed the exhibition guide for our course exhibition, this came back from the guys at Team Impression printers late yesterday, I'll put pictures up soon. We spent some time developing the fold pattern and structuring of information and I'm really pleaed with how it turned out. 29.7 x 29.7 folded into 16 pages with one colour litho print onto 120gsm kaskad tinted stock, ace!

Time for some pics...

Me and Kyle have been art directing photographer Adrian Ray while working on the content for next years prospectus. He's really talent and a nice guy to boot! (These are low-res and still to be fully colour corrected).

Some more work for ThisIsNotForCharity is currently at the printers, five different types of flyers and some t-shirts. Julian left on his round the world cycling adventure last week, the GPS live tracking system is now working over on the follow section of the site.

I think that will do the for the moment, I need to get some sleep before my parents turn up! I'm planning to give the site a full overhaul and add lots of new projects in the next few weeks... watch this space!

S2R wins at Yorkshire Digital Awards


Just found out that the S2R program I branded for new media educational network Radiowaves has won 'best E-learning initiative' at the Yorkshire Digital Awards.

The judges said they were “particularly impressed by the way the site empowered teenagers.

I'm really happy about being involved in such a great programme, congratulations to all the team at Radiowaves.
