I have been developing my own logo over the course of the year, and now I have come to print some business cards and I want to use it.
In todays session we used Adobe Illustrator to edit my logo text for WOUP which then will be taken over to Cinema 4D, the file had to be saved as Illustrator 8, because Cinema 4D doesn’t recognise the more recent versions of Illustrator files.
London Metropolitan University visual communication students are hard at work using the huge variety of facilities: letterpress, screenprinting, library, riso printer and many many more.
The students set up their own exhibitions and they are involved in everything – setting up the space and producing the work.
Curating events from the very beginning to the enjoyable free bar at the end.

Today we had another Cinema 4D workshop, following on from the last sessions. We added a cap, water and a label to the bottle. I’m glad these workshop shops are taking place every Friday, I hope to see more of these workshops next year.
For CCS we have been asked to create a piece of critical design in response to one of the lectures from this year. I have decided to choose gender as my topic. I started by thinking what is an every day object that I can project my design on to, I chose a chair.
For the brand application part of my project I am generating designs using http://www.psdcovers.com. This has brought my brand identity for Woup to another level. I can now visualise my identity as a physical thing that can be interacted with. (and if you noticed that the Mac is displaying a windows desktop… well done)
As my design for the GIF was very black and white, I decided to start designing a series of posters, which was nice to breath a little bit of colour into my work. This is a concept board I am using to develop more posters.
I have created a new concept board, the old one was more specific to my last idea. So this one is an updated version that coincides with my project.
I am experimenting and replicating ukulele music sheets by giving them a Duke of Uke modern twist.
Ricardo gave me some advice about my typography decisions in respect to my web mock-ups. For each block of text/information I was asked to individually consider the typography being used, what are they trying to communicate?
