Today we had our presentations, I thought that it went really well, we were prepared and I think it showed. I have always struggled with talking in front of people, but today I felt confident with what I was talking about and I just got on with it, I am really proud of our group as we worked really hard to make sure that the presentation worked, we put in a lot of effort and believe that it showed. We were given lots of positive feedback which was good to hear. To improve we were advised to include some more refined moodboards as our research was so broad, this is a very fair comment and something I am going to bear in mind when I am doing the individual part of the project.
Catch Up Work
Today i finished my shirt for the creative cut project, i am really happy that it is now complete, its another item ticked off the list ready for hand in, which is only two weeks away, i also worked on the layout of my moodboard for creative cut, this is where i am at this moment in time, i might do some more moving around, but i will complete the other boards before i decide, i want to make sure that everything looks cohesive.
I spent today doing sketchbook work, I have laid out my sketchbook so that I know what is going on each page, I have decided to do a research-based sketchbook and a design sketchbook, this way I can include all of the research that I have done. I have found this project really interesting as it has made me open my eyes more towards the issues we are facing day to day around the world, I have decided to focus in on the environment, but I am also looking at Muslim culture.
Today I had a tutorial to look at my sketchbook, this was very helpful as it gave me a chance to discuss and refine my ideas, this has really organised me and shown me what I have left to do over the next two weeks, at the moment I am in a good place, I just have to continue in the same way. Throughout my research I have focused heavily on the environment in my tutorial my tutor suggested that I look at the packaging aspect as well as the design, I really like this idea and it is something that I am going to work on over the next week as I am doing my designs. I still have a bit of research left to do but I am in a place where I can start all of my design and sampling work.
