Rethink

As discussed in my tutorial with Lee, I did not present a fully completed final piece. This was for a number of reasons, one being that I lost my original work (lesson learnt; back up everything!), another being that I was having difficulty presenting my findings in a suitable manner. I have decided to revisit the project after a few weeks off to try and find a more interesting outcome than a magazine or book.

I intend to look back at my research throughout the project and (maybe) look into a few more areas which may give me a better knowledge on my chosen topic, clouds. Coming back to the project after a few weeks will hopefully help me find new ways to tackle the research and find a solution that is much more engaging and interesting than the publication that I had began creating for the hand in.

My academic progress / results so far:

I aim to achieve much higher results this year than last. I achieved 2:1 and high 2:2 toward the end of last year but I would like to improve this and average at at least a 2:1 by improving my skills and going back to work on previous projects.

My reflection on my progress:

I feel that I have improved in certain areas throughout the course, however, I do feel like I need to start applying myself and experimenting much more. I would like to have more of a style to my work, as so far I tend to just try out a bit of everything.

My work experience:

Couple of logos and an illustration or two

My portfolio:

I would like to improve my portfolio so that there is more continuity throughout.

I get distracted

My career plan:

I would like to tailor my portfolio so that it is much more suited for editorial and branding companies, as this is where I see myself heading. I’m hoping to move from Sheffield and try out a new city.
