Freelancing for COCONG exhibition: Second client meeting
Today was the second meeting with Elise Grosse regarding my designs for their exhibition website. She is one of the architects involved in the COCONG project - a sustainable design exhibition that will be held at Kulturhuset from May - October that I am doing the web design for.
This time it was held at Elise’s company headquarters (see photo) Habibihaus, on Hornsgatan.
Feedback was great, they are quite happy with the way I translated their requests and wishes into a possible design for their website. For my first freelance project of this sort, I was very encouraged, especially as the designers have been great people to collaborate with. After feedback from Elise and some of her co-workers, I now have some changes and tweaks to make until this Friday, when we will show the designs and logo to Kulturhuset, the major supporter of this project, so that shall be exciting!
More info on the designs and exhibition to come soon :)
Designing a Web Site from start to finish: - an infographic
Found this wonderful infographic today on Nina Amjadi’s site, a fellow Digital Media student at Hyper Island, from the Karlskrona school. It’s from the award winning web design agency Simple Square, and free to download as a PDF here. She shared this today on her blog, and it has come to my attention at a perfect time.
Seeing as I am doing the strategy in my group, for the current module ‘The Lifecycle of Digital and Interactive Projects’, this a a great tool for me to use as a reminder for what milestones our group need to deliver with regards to the client & the design of the website, for our client City Studios. This is also a great resource to hold on to for future reference in other projects, as I love strategy and project planning, so I will definitely refer back it.
Thank you for sharing this great infographic Nina!
Specialization Module Part 1 Begins! A Technology month for me
This Monday we started our new module.
Duration: 2011-02-14 ->2011-03-11 // 4 weeks
Deadlines: 9 & 10 March
Objective: During the specialisation module students choose one area of specialisation within design, technique or business development and project leadership to deepen their skills based on their own choice and need of development.
Some of the learning outcomes for the Tech Specialization:
･ Advise on the possibilities and limitations of technologies used in digital solutions: ･ development technologies (front-end, back-end, applications, rich media etc.) ･ delivery platforms (web, mobile, API etc.) ･ delivery infrastructure (networks, servers, hosting, clients etc.) ･ Research and solve different technology challenges ･ Develop basic prototypes and proof of concepts using various technologies ･ Gather, manage and manipulate data ･ Plan for, develop and implement a functional technical solution. ･ Evaluate and test a technical solution.
A toolbox in the context of this module is an individual task created by the creative industry based on an expected learning outcome.
As a complement to this module we are required to work shadow a professional from the industry of our specialization choice, in my case Tech. The aim for using work shadowing as a learning tool is to give the students the possibility observe how the digital media industry works in general, and in relation to roles and responsibilities in particular, to even further understand the industry. I will be at Aer Studio first week of March. (SO.EXCITED.)
Below are some photos from yesterdays Facilitation session with Heidi Herman, web & business developer. Hyper Island invites industry persons to perform facilitation in relation to the toolbox challenges. Heidi was great and super helpful, we had a great session yesterday, thank you :)
