i.e. How I get ideas.
Just finished my mid-term portfolio presentation. It went pretty good I think.
Marc and Kira asked me about the way I work, and I didn’t really realise until I answered then, that I really have no clue or set formula to the way I work.
The last brief I did, I’m really happy with what I got at the end of it. But damn it was a tough 2 weeks. I get ideas from bits and pieces, here and there, and they come and go, so it’s always a “please will someone just help sort my brain out for me” moment at the start of a project. But when it all starts to come full circle, when ideas start linking up, when even the most irrelevant crazy things I did start marking sense, that’s when things get rolling. I wish I were one of those mad men geniuses out there who just get ideas falling accidentally into their brain at the right time (i.e. when it’s demanded not one week into a two-week brief). But that’s just how my brain works.
Thought I’ll share a few of the slides for that project; see how I go from a confused mess to A supplement to the English language. Click to see it larger and if you actually (wow) want to read the painstakingly written description (chuffed).
And for the end results, see here.
About to start on a new project now. Please will someone just help sort my brain out for me.
