Tomorrow if my hand in and I’m losing my “….”. The thing is, for some reason I thought that I have one more day, but no. I’ve done cross referencing, timetable, 2 proposals, bibliography and blog. This is my last post. All I still have to do is my evaluation and my trip week sketchbook, that I have not done for some reason and left it till last minute. So me. But it’s ok, I’ll buy a mini sketchbook and fill it in real quick. I already have all the information about the trips that I collected myself, it’s just going to be a bit time consuming. Overall, I’m glad that this is it. Time went super fast.
Today I started writing my evaluation. I will probably be done by tomorrow. Today I also have to do cross referencing. I need to check both of my sketchbooks and make sure everything as annotated.
Today I decided to go over both of my proposals, especially the main one to make sure it connects to my project and everything that I have done. I also have to start writing my evaluation pretty soon, which is 1000 words. I don’t think that it will be a problem, because I know what to write about and I quiet enjoy writing. I have to buy one big folder in which I’m going to put my bibliography, C&CS essay, proposals etc.
Now since my final piece is done and my poster is done, all I have to do is make sure that all the other important stuff like bibliography and cross referencing is done too. My bibliography is mostly done, but I haven’t cross referenced anything yet. Also, I have to make sure that al of my blogs are up to date and my sketchbooks too. In my first sketchbook, there is only one page that is not done and it is from me experimenting with transfer inkjet paper. I have to include the other sample of the t-shirt and annotate it.
Today I got news. The photo that I decided to put out as my poster, has been seen by other tutors and I have been told that I have to change the photo because it’s too revealing and “sexy”. I mean yes that is true, but that was the goal! Apparently too much for the kinds…So unprofessional in my opinion, I can’t express myself, because some kid might go to the exhibition and see this photo. As if I was gonna destroy someones childhood. That was not my goal, friends. But anyway, I was given a choice of choosing another photo or do something with this one. Because I really like this photo, I wasn’t gonna give up, yet.
First, I tried putting other photo on this one, to cover up at least half of the model’s butt. Then, I though, maybe, I’d also put the logo that I did as well. I been doing all of this in Photoshop and that’s what I came up with:
To be honest, I don’t really like how it looks because it looks like I’m trying to cover something up really desperately and still failing at it. Then, I thought that maybe I could just write word CENSORED or something like this over the revealing area. Something like the Supreme logo but “Censored”. I wanted to make it in style too and I thought that glitch effect might look good. I looked up on the internet a youTube tutorial that will help me create this glitchy text effect, because I have no idea how to do it myself.
After about 40 minutes I was done. For the first time creating something like this I did really well. It was hard, but if anything this tutorial helped me understand how Photoshop work more and that’s never a bad thing.
It looks a bit weird, but I don’t have time to come up with something else. Then, I put this text over my photo to try and cover up what needed to be covered up and that’s the final image:
Of course I’d rather have the original, but because I’m still at college turns out I can’t do stuff like that, because it will “offend” someone. It’s alright, it will be different when I’m at uni. Overall, I’m happy with my poster.
My boxes and my stickers were delivered few days ago and I have started to decorate them. Instead of covering the whole box, I decided to cover only the lids, because I was scared that I’m gonna run out of stickers pretty quick. When I finished the first box, I was really satisfied with the outcome and was really glad I chose this way of decoration. Very colourful, “messy” and drags you attention straight away. Today I have finished decorating all of them. I counted that for every box I’ve used maximum of 46-65 stickers per box/lid.
Then it was time to put my t-shirts, posters and stickers in.
On the two photos above, I showed how I folded the t-shirt. It actually fitted perfectly in the box. I wanted design to be right in the middle, so when anyone opens the box they don’t have to guess which t-shirt is which. Plus, I think my customer will really like other additional stuff that’s in the box like post card and a sticker. Overall, I’m more than satisfied with my final piece. I’m really glad that for the first time I finished it before the deadline.
Now it’s time to choose the photo I want to display on my poster. I can do it in a few ways, either chose one photo or choose a few that I like and make a layout in the InDesign. Firstly, I wanted to put a lot of photos on my poster, because I couldn’t chose which ones I liked the most. But then, I decided to just go with one photo. This is the photo that I chose for my poster.
I like this photo, because it directly shows what I’m trying to promote, you can clearly see the design at the back of the t-shirt. Besides really sexy fishnet tights, glossy black heels and beautiful long hair. I love everything about this photo and I’m really satisfied with it. I think it’s fully reflects the whole vibe of my label.
My tutor said that our posters will be A0 size, which is pretty big. All I had to do was to save it in Photoshop and make sure that the image size was enlarged to at least 300-500 pixels. Then, put it on a usb and give to my tutor.
