After not liking what i was doing. I decided to look at my different options. There was a workshop on how to use the RoBo and Laser cutter. i quickly taught myself how to use illustrator and made some card design on there.
this is me and my best friend martin. i have two male best friends, the other is gay and will appricate any best friend card you give him no matter how girly it is. however when i try to buy martin a birthday card i find it really hard as all the best friend cards are female and he is to specail to just buy a normal birthday card. this inspired me to create male and female best friend cards for my indivual options project.
for my most recent project i have being using spray paint, so every chance ive got when the weather has been on my side ive been out in my garden spray painting my designs ready to create into gift products
these are my gift bag and boxes for the live brief we were working on for hallmark. i did for different themes. gnomes, fairys, cupcakes and owls as you can see in the picture of the gift boxes. i made them all from scratch to create the gift bags and boxes.
this is one of my top designs from year 2. my theme was pirates. i hand embroided all the anchors on to the top. i quite like the outcome of this how so of the anchors where very time consuming for how little we had for the project
i have been busy getting on top of my work recently rather than it being on top of me for once. i think im finally getting there. this year has been a busy year, with only 6 to 8 weeks to do projects. but i have enjoyed this year at uni. this year at uni has also helped me to decided what area i want to go into. after doing my gift project i realised that this is where my passion lies.
