My summer has officially started now and so I’m going full steam ahead with my commission work which has been building up a bit in the last couple of months. Currently I am creating 2 animations for the university and also just finished designing an infographic style poster for a lovely lady called Kath at my university who runs a scheme called The Cardiff Award. It’s an employability award that I took part in this year and I luckily got the chance to create a poster for her to go to a conference with and help advertise.
The poster needed to fit in with the existing branding and be visually appealing & informative. As the first poster project I have done it was an interesting challenge. Have a look and see what you think!
This is one of my first experiences with large format (this is designed to be printed A0) so there was a bit of a learning curve! I decided to use Illustrator to make it because I was worried about the text becoming pixelated in Photoshop when it was blown up so huge and I think it went ok! I had to pay much more attention to the sizes of images than I usually do and pay extra careful attention to ensure nothing would look pixelated when it was finally printed.
Overall I’m happy with the result and I think Kath is too 🙂
For the next week I’ll be busy animating for the university, I’m doing two short videos for the Widening Access department for them to bring to schools and present to GCSE and A Level pupils who may be thinking about university.
On top of that (!) I’m hoping to enter a competition being advertised by UCAS, which closes on 30th June – gulp, that is to produce a 30 second video about what you love your degree. I do Maths so I’m hoping to make something interesting out of it! I’ll post the video on here if I get round to entering 🙂
For now I need to run off – lots of work and very little time!
