I went to the I AM collective exhibition which had some people from uni featuring in it. The exhibition is a collection of art and music. It was good to see some of the art work there and the image above was Will Jeffreys pics which was the best in my opinion. A lot of the other stuff was more sculpture based or fine art pieces which I am not really a fan of the be onest.
I went to visit Motiv today. It was good meeting everyone there and seeing the kind of work they produce. Its more motion graphics based and they create a lot of adverts for tv however I still think it was worth going because they out source graphic design jobs they have and said they would get in touch if they had any freelance work which is good.

I really enjoyed my placement at Allgood and I got on really well with the guys there. I was working on different things such as web designs and branding projects. One thing I did notice was how slow my work flow is compared the senior designer that works there. This is something I guess will come with time however i found it pretty frustrating. I also found it hard to come up with ideas for boring subjects like HR companies which was worrying as I will probably be expected to do this kind of thing when i get a job. However I enjoyed the experience and I liked being in a working environment and the routine of getting up everyday and going to work. They also gave me some advice on my portfolio which i found really beneficial.

I am in the process of creating my own personal website for my portfolio. I been learning how to use wordpress to create the site so it has taken longer than expected. I am just about happy with the design so far and now just need to add work to it when its ready. The URL is:

The presentation went not too bad. I think it was one of my better ones however I still struggle with the volume that I talk. I find it hard to project my voice which I think affects my presenting skills. To take a positive from it, I feel I am more confident at speaking and didn't feel as nervous as previous presentations.

I finally got round to using the laser cutter for one of my briefs. This was one of the things I stated I wanted to experiment with at the start of the year so I am pleased I have had ago. I now feel confident in using it and plan to use it again for a future brief.
