SEASIDE! I am going to Norfolk this week or a couple of days with a friend from college and my new laddy friends (including the lovely Josh) I really need a good break and a couple of days in Wells would be lovely.
Well you've definitely done just that! I think it's good to stretch yourself especially for your FMP, shows how you've progressed as a designer (:
Well thanks! My final was a book, the illustrations narrated the text i had to go with them and stuff, so i guess it's kind of like a story! I'd love to get into stuff like that though, it's definitely something i could see myself doing! (:
That's the feeling i got from it when i went to look round when i was starting my National Diploma, I just fell in love with the place straight away! Errm, well - nice places in Leeds... There's a lot of pretty decent bars and clubs, y'can havea good night out in Leeds. I like to go out around Queens court which is the 'gay area' of Leeds, they throw some pretty amazing partys at the gay bars.
Clarence dock is a pretty place, it's down by the canal, and again - there's nice bars and places to eat there (a bit pricey though)!
Yeah, i did mention Brighton, it was one of the places i'd applied to! (: I'm going to London College of Communication though to do a degree in Illustration now though! I couldn't be happier! I absolutely can't wait to move down there! Xx
Yep! I feel I can move on to uni and do harder work now!
Your welcome :) Take a picture of your final exhibition, it would great to see it all together!
Arh cool, I think I have heard of both of those places :) There is not doubt loads going on, it’s going to be weird living in a city because I live out in the counrty haha
Arh I thought it was Brighton, I love it there but I cant afford it sadly and it costs loads to get home. I got a place but I chose Leeds instead :) London is a great place, I read that your girlfriend lives down there so that will be good! Roll on september! xx
Blimey I have been doing alot of chit chat on Tumblr this evening! Thanks for everyones nice comments and feedback on my magazine. It means alot! I will post the final thing soon when it is all finished :)
It looks like it's taken a long time! There's so much to it! I thought i did a lot of work for my FMP bahaha, you've definitely put me to shame on this one! I'd actually buy this if it was published as a real magazine.
Thank you! (: I'm really glad you like those as well! A lot of work went into them, it does mean a lot when people tell me they like what i do!
I also noticed you've answered a question saying that you're off to Leeds College of Art, i might have talked to you about this before, i can't quite remember because i've had so many conversations about uni's on here since the start of the year haa, but i go there now, it's been the best two years of my life, all the tutors are wonderful. You're going to absolutely love it there! (: x
Haha I think I may have gone abit over board with it but I needed to stretch myself! Would you really? Thats a bloody relief then, a couple of weeks ago I had a mardy about it all and said no one including myself would want it hahaa
Yeah I know the feeling, but seriously I think your set of illustrations all work really well and your drawing stays the same in all of them and that must take a lot of practise. They would illustrate nice story books :)
Yeah I am off to Leeds to do the BA Graphic Design course :) I loved it when I walked through the doors and its nice to know that you liked it. Wheres the best places to go in Leeds then.
I think I may have talked to you, about something. It may have been about ..Brighton…i think? I have had lots of conversations too haha.
i reckon you've gotta be a bit of a perfectionist to do graphic design. that's my excuse anyway aha.
ahh yeah one of my mates on my foundation course didn't hear back after she sent her digital portfolio. 2000 people applied so it was proper tough. leeds was my back-up plan, surprisingly liked it quite a bit x
Thats a very good excuse!
Yeah I heard that was the number :) Well done for getting in though! You will have a great time there. Hope your friend got in where she wanted in the end xx
have to say, your magazine looks ace. don't know where i'm going to find the patience to start completing projects like that from september.
Thanks for commenting, I have looked at it so much, I am starting to dislike bits of it! Dont worry, I feel the same about the competition when I start in September. I guess that the design world is just like that.
