3rd Year Degree Show – PL{US} show

Pl{us} show of the third year degree show was eye opening and got me excited for third year. The work was very interesting and amazing to see so many different ideas and styles in one room. It was defiantly and eye opening experience to see everyones work and to see what I will be doing next year and got me exciting for my final year.

One of things that really took me by surprised was the dissertation! It really inspired me to do mine over the summer as I can make something that I can also design in a really cool way. It makes me feel like I can creates a purpose for my work and makes me feel like it won’t be a pointless and having it created would make it more readable to designers.

The thing that really inspired me was the fact that the work was all so amazing but it was also the way it was displayed that made it so much better. The way this one above was displayed made it so much more interesting because it linked so well with the final product.

Digital Me – Website

After my tutorial with matt about making a word press website I felt more confident when it came to making one for my own portfolio of work. I wanted to follow the theme and colours using my logo to help guide my website. To create my website I used word press and with that I used the theme ‘Singl’ as I felt this would work well with my concept of a portfolio.

My website I created a about pages first to make sure that everyone knew who I was as a person and a designer. I wanted to show who I was as a designer by explaining what my skills were and also explain what I want to do. Screen Shot 2018-06-04 at 12.32.04.png

I then created a portfolio page where I made thumb nails of all my projects and hyperlinked them all to separate pages that I would then put my work onto. This would help people guide themselves around my website and click on the separate parts of my portfolio work. I included all of my portfolio work underneath the heading portfolio and had hyperlink within the thumbnails.

I also wanted to include my cv within my website so that anyone who seen it would see my CV as well. The cv helps people know who I am and what skills and qualifications I have. I included this on a separate page after my portfolio.

I also placed my Instagram and twitter page underneath my page so that people could see other work I had done. I have both a twitter and a Instagram page that display my work that i’m currently doing and work i’ve done in the past.

Digital Me – Portfolio

For this project it was all about digital me and creating a brand and a portfolio set up. I created a portfolio that followed the them of my logo and displayed all my work from 2nd year making it interactive so that I could include all of my videos. I used my logo as a opening page and then created thumb nail for each of my projects to make it easy to navigate around the portfolio. I also set my logo as a button to click to back to the homepage this made it easier again to navigate. I also used thumb nails for my videos and linked them to my youtube video.

I enjoyed making this portfolio and displaying all of my work within one place. This made it easier to create my website as I already had the base within my portfolio. I liked the fact that we could make our portfolio link to our theme and logo given it our own individual stamp.

Portfolio

My portfolio shows three project from this years subject and also project from my field that I include because I think it show a wide range of other work that I can do and shows that I can work with other fields as well.

Digital Me Cv

For this Project after I created a brand for myself I decided to continue with my CV as this was the thing that most excited me. I wanted to show who I am in a creative way and it was the one thing that I could because I already had a CV base.

The cv I want to explain who I am as a person and a designer and I wanted to show how my retail experience has helped me with my skills. I have included all my socialmedia that I have created towards my own brand.
