Summarising Week One.

To summarise week one, i had to back track through all my sketchbooks and notes. Which to be honest has helped a lot, you know when you look back at your work come the end of the school year and kick yourself because you could have done so much more? Well I've had that feeling and now i have enough time to go back over the Christmas holidays and get it all up to scratch. Here are just a few photos during the week.

Figure and ground: Using the initials of your name, you are required to produce two designs, one for each initial, which explore the use of negative and positive space and the interplay between figure and ground. The aim is to push the designs to create ambiguity, and challenge our perception of the forms. (This is a three week ongoing project.)

Project brief and my initial typeface choices. 

Double page spread of experimentation concentrating on positive and negative space.
Space between two points: Individually record/document the space between two points using line/lines only. (This is a single afternoon exercise.)

Line drawings from journey points a to b.

Its been a long old four months since i last posted and here is why:

  1. I enrolled at Westminster University.
  2. I moved to London. 
  3. I have no social life outside my flat. 
  4. I don't seem to have any spare time. 
  5. I've run out of rubbish excuses. 
This is why I'm here today:

  1. Get back into the habit of blogging because this really should be my life now. 
  2. To get myself motivated and therefore do more coursework. 
  3. To document my findings and hopefully make it a lot easier to research. 
  4. To feel like im achieving something on a day to day basis. Yes im going to blog everyday or should i say try to. 
And thats about it. I've decided to back track and summarize my weeks since i've been here and then progress to daily. On that note i have an essay on Modernism to finish.
