It was a really strange period. So MANY bank holidays! because of that I lost 2 tutorials and to be honest this is not really helping my projects at all.
D&AD results were out!
I did the body shop packaging brief and unfortunately I didnt win anything. But it was a great 3 weeks project experience.
Masters Degree Show
The end of semester 2 is getting closer and we all agree that we will set up a Masters degree show in July to have a quick conclusion of what we have been doing. I volunteered myself and join the MA degree show team to discuss about the branding for the show. We had a few sessions of group meetings and we shared quite a few ideas of what the visuals will look like for this degree show. and here is some of my attempts.
and of coz, I am also working on my major projects.
Just a quick recap of what my project is about. I am going to do several design (Information design, Graphic design) about my history, the past 23/4 years. What I have been doing? What did I look before? Where have I been traveled ?…etc.
and I did some quick mock ups as part of my developments.
Evolution of my hair (1987-2010)
My gaming history. (Handhelds, consoles and computers)
The design of this is to visually showing the amount of video/ computer games I owned before/ now, and I think to develop this I will put a time line as a duration measurement of how long I have been played on these gaming device.
Went back to Hong Kong for 2 weeks holidays. Really nice to see my family and friends + the food!
Part from all the leisures, I still have to do some research for my project work. I went to the Central public library in Hong Kong and found some sources such as books, newspaper and microfilms for my project.
and some other newspaper and microfilms form the central library.
It was very interesting to see this records about the history of Hong Kong and at the same time I felt like Ive been travel back in time when I was reading them.
Also I went to the museums and exhibitions and by coincident most of them were displaying the history of Hong Kong or looking back the history. I collected some leaflets after I visited them as a references.
*Since last post – Finished my D&AD body shop competition brief. PG03 business project in progress. Few days off to Falmouth. *
Right! Now down to this PG04 business.
From what I wrote about Info Graphics in my literature review. What kinds of things that can be interesting to do?
I have been thinking about doing my own life time journey, I had a quite interesting life journey; born and living in HK, study in Wales, study in Falmouth, study in London… and of coz it will be quite interesting to see more detail like where ive been before for traveling, things that I like to play with (plastic models, video games, etc), my personal collections such as photographs and books.
Sound like I have a plan to do, but I am still trying to breakdown and explore any other ideas, thinking about things that can be personal and little, things that I or people desire to do.
I have been looking at the other designers work, see how they interpret information into their design skill.
I looked at these designers work.
In general, it is really difficult for me to obtain a huge information/ data to design unless I involve with some science or engineer projects. However I think it still can be done just like the designers above, find something around you and collect them as a data source.
