I’ve been playing catch up since arriving back in Brisbane after seven months in the US. There’s been a lots of life admin to take care of, including finding a job. A job that’s flexible with my uni commitments, pays well and hopefully provides a break from thinking about design and my major project.
Lucky for me, Uber has just started up in Brisbane. Uber is the San Francisco ride-sharing start-up that’s revolutionising the taxi industry all over the world.
This project aims to deliver an online dive logbook solution which incorporates citizen science in order to mutually benefit both scuba divers and marine researchers. Through the use of proven methodologies it is hoped a successful start-up will be formed that has the potential to revolutionise the industry.
Circa 2009, I began studying graphic design at Southbank Institute of Tafe. Above is my very first attempt at a stop motion animation. It is also the very first movie I made, ever. I came across it today when looking through old YouTube videos.
In the first semester of Tafe we focused a lot on creating design without computers. It really makes your work personal when you can see a handmade element to it. Something I often forget these days.
Since finishing my undergrad and jumping into the workforce, I’ve found that there is a lot of things that weren’t taught in school that are essential for survival as a graphic designer. This blog will share my journey of discovery as I uncover new techniques, skills and more efficient ways of getting work done.
