We began our long awaiting journey as budding Illustration and Graphic Design students on an average Monday in the midst of the chilly September days.

Impression: Dialogue Riso Outcome

On Friday, I’ve got the chance to only to riso print one of the design because I have noticed that enlarging the image up is very difficult to do. What’s difficult about the enlargement is that the largest file size on InDesign is an A3 however the design has to cover an A1 size paper… Continue reading Impression: Dialogue Riso Outcome

CIP: Kickstarter Feedback

We got back from the easter break and all the groups have to present what they have done in the groups so far. In all honesty I wasn’t expecting a mock up presentation on this day.

CIP: Kickstart Brief

It’s the last brief everyone has received for CIP and it is the smallest brief. The brief is more of a continuation than starting a fresh which I guess it is a good thing because it required everyone to go back to our Market Ready groups. I honestly enjoyed market ready brief because I have worked with… Continue reading CIP: Kickstart Brief

Impression: O.OO Risograph & Design Studio

As part of the riso show research, I found that O.OO Risograph & Design Studio was part of the list of things to research for this brief. So I gave a look and what got my attention was that they were based in Taiwan. A company that would base their work around riso, being based on another… Continue reading Impression: O.OO Risograph & Design Studio

Impression: Riso Testing

So we had a riso testing workshop. This workshop was mainly for us to test out how the work would look once it’s in the riso machine, so we get a better understanding of what the final outcome would probably look like. I didn’t do any testings for any of my development because I didn’t feel… Continue reading Impression: Riso Testing

Impression: Group Crit

Today we got a group crit for the riso show brief. I showed the studio what I’ve done for the Dialouge signage and I’ve found that there are three that they really like. The feedback that I got was how it looked trippy and I should now focus on really finalise the design. I’m currently… Continue reading Impression: Group Crit
