The first week has been some what eye opening at the amount of work that I will need to produce. A fair bit of written work is needed for a design course… new to me haha. Any way, I’m nearly through the workload and am looking forward to a much more stress free week next week with two extra days to complete the tasks (Saturday and Sunday)
The toughest piece of the course was defining what graphic design is to me in under 50 words, here is my response,
Graphic design is the creation of artistic media. It is to plant ideas and beliefs into the audiences world to entice selling or funding. To me it is an essential part of marketing to be aimed at the intended communities. It is the creation of ideas through type and imagery.
Looking back I would probably change it to be a bit more personal. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Cliches, I hate them!
Theres not been any creative side to my studies yet, though I am looking forward to this aspect of it greatly.
