This Week’s Progress:
After doing a lot of reading and research, I am thinking that the most interesting topics and areas of study I am looking forward to pursuing would be package design, illustration, and editorial design. When I first took the elective for package design, I was so excited to be so hands-on with my projects. After that class ended, I discovered that the class was to be discontinued due to not enough students signing up for the class. I thought that was ridiculous because that was one of the best classes that I got so much experience out of. I was so happy to have been able to take the class when I could. I hope to include all three of my interests in my senior project, although I do not have a specific idea of what I want to create exactly, but I do hope to include all of packaging, illustrating, and editorial designing! After learning this, I know there is a lot more researching to do within these topics along with learning and re-teaching myself certain tools and elements of design. Especially the GRID! I do own a few books that have been mentioned in the senior letters such as ‘making and breaking the grid.’ Perhaps purchasing a few more books will seriously only help me with my designs in the making.
