Phew! A good result on A5 was a welcome relief, as I’ve found this assignment the most challenging yet. It’s been a very difficult transition from the world of print design to the World Wide Web.
I was questioning if I was cut out for web design, due to my slow start with A5, and to be honest lack of enjoyment. All that changed about half way through the assignment when CSS and XHTML started to sink in. This made A5 a lot more enjoyable and I now feel much more confident about taking on my next web site build.
Over the last week or so, I’ve started work on A7. The brief is to design a CD Digipak artwork for our experimental electronic artists. Along with the Artwork we have to design a new logo for Raster-Noton record label.
This should be right up my street, given my background in print design and passion for Photoshop. My experience however creates added pressure, as I will be expected to perform well on this task, not just by my peers and tutor, but myself.
Over the next few weeks I need to really push on and get in front. Right in the middle of this assignment I’m moving house. With this change in location comes all the inconveniences; decorating, removals, cleaning and sorting out broadband providers and phone lines.
The coming weeks could be very busy for me, so I must make the most of the next two weeks before move-in to get a sizable amount of A7 done.
