A week or so without any assignments and I’m still trying to get used to it, lol 🙂 At the same time, my head is swimming with about a thousand ideas on what I should do next – what do I want to do with my new skills? Where do I want them to take me? So many ideas! I definitely think I’m going to create some sort of business in the design/art area, but I’m not sure exactly what though… still some sorting out to do there.
One thing that did come to mind while I’ve been thinking about all of this, was an assignment I did last year around Copyright. Copyright should be a really straight-forward thing, i.e. don’t copy other people’s stuff, but sometimes things aren’t quite so simple.
This assignment was the first time I used InDesign, so it was ah, interesting… I can’t say I’m a huge fan of that program now though either… Anyway, for the assignment we had to write a one-page magazine article on ‘Copyright for Designers’. For the presentation of the article we had to find an article in a design magazine and duplicate their grid layout.
I chose an article from No Cure – one of my favourite art/design magazines 🙂
Thankfully I worked out how to set up the grid without too much hassle. We had to include photos too – I used my own photos of my own drawings – easy way to avoid copyright issues 🙂
Good Morning, Good Morning! It’s the weekend 🙂 What have you got planned? I’ve got a huge list of things I want to get through this weekend including a whole heap of studying! This little study activity was super easy so I was able to get through it while I had my brekkie – got to love multi-tasking haha – I had to research a few fonts and typeset my name in each of them. Not difficult and it was interesting to read some of the background behind the fonts.
So just a bit of an FYI, this is the activity that has me creating this here blog…
“Progress Challenge 3: Creating your production blog

Hi All! Well I’m starting this blog pretty much because it’s an activity for the Graphic Design course I’m doing though OpenColleges… Buuuut, I also think it’s a pretty good idea, and I’ve always wanted to start a blog, so now I actually have an excuse 🙂
