Interim Crit 22/1/2015
Study brief 1 - Individual practice, a minimum of 5 substantial briefs, these can be made up of small commissions or competition works, for example loop de loop, could enter the competition once a week till the module brief ends, these collectively can make 1 substantial brief.
- If you're given a small client based commission, you could build on top of this by designing mock up products, such as, client asks for a birthday card, build on top of this by designing gift wrapping, gift bags, balloons, bunting.
- These 5 need to be significant - could have another 2 for illustration based briefs? Qwertee - design a t-shirt design? could enter the competition once a week to build up a body or work. Good practice for short deadlines.
Project report - evaluation of the module as a whole. - what did you gain from this? how did this effect your working practice - why this specific brief? Read the terms and conditions of the live briefs - agre the work load - any competitions that ask to sign or not blog about it talk with the tutors - Keep copies of your work - mail it to yourself as the postage stamp stands as evidence of date in the court of law. DO NOT OPEN THE PACKAGE - as it will become invalid evidence.
