Since week 6, I’ve been plugging away at the Credo project, getting little bits and pieces done as I go. I’m happy to announce that it’s almost done. All it needs is a little trimming, folding and glueing and it’s ready to go. I’m really pleased with it, I see it as a reflection of myself. I think that although it is hard as a designer to do work that revolves around one’s self, it can be a really worthwhile thing to do, as it makes you focus on the way you design.

Does anyone know where you can get black and white A3 prints done on stock of over 300GSM? If you do, please comment here, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.



The future, or something like it

A member of my family just proclaimed, “This is going to be the future, if it’s not already!” (quoting something I didn’t see or hear off the television, I believe). I think this conundrum is quite applicable to the idea that if something is new, then it already exists, and is not the future. This little phrase seems quite relevant to the ‘new technologies’ concept.

I was bored and frustrated with all my work, so I got to thinking about the future of this credo project, given that I might be out with folio in hand shortly after this course is completed. For a project, which at first, I must admit I was not at all fond of, I have grown to love it, and am contemplating making it a part of my eventual folio. As I was sitting on the train, ideas popped into my head, and I designed this (the actual execution, of course, was not completed on the train).

I don’t really see this as a part of the current project, but more an evolution (sorry about the pun). It’s a hint, perhaps of what might come next, or maybe it is simply a slightly more fruitful way of procrastinating. Only time will tell! Just thought I would share it.

That process journal I keep promising will be up shortly.



Perfect binding – an appeal for help

Does anyone know where I can get my Credo document perfect bound (without breaking the bank)? If anyone can think of anywhere, please post a comment. If you just want to recommend any good printers and binders for anything, that would be cool too.

Thanks!
