Bless me WordPress for I have sinned, it’s been more than a week since my last blog, I’ve been busy. First studio project of the semester was due this week which was, as the title suggests, 50 Concepts in 4 Weeks. It wasn’t horrendous but it wasn’t my favourite project of all time.
It doesn’t escape my attention that out of 50 ideas I’m only happy with the 11 above. That’s kind of sad, but I shan’t dwell on it. The brief was 3 mini-briefs with the focus on idea-generation: nature inspired watches, methods of mixing and applying bone cement and ways of addressing the issue of bikes on buses. The last two were fairly slow going but after 2 lazy weeks and a couple of 14-hour panic days, it got done.
No rest for the wicked it seems though because the new brief was on us 15 minutes later, 10 new concepts (of injection moulded speaker housings) due Wednesday. That combined with the mountain of Photoshop rendering due the same day make my feelings of “Thank God it’s finally over” completely unjustified. I’m going to enjoy them anyway until it’s time to stress out again on Monday.
