Some Hero Images
Here are some of the photos I managed to get of my signs so far.
I am lucky in the fact that I have a good grasp of photography and how to use an infinity table and studio lighting set up, but I suppose that this is a good example of some of the things that the technicians will take the time to show you if you want to learn.
If you haven't already seen the justification for my project within some of the earlier blog posts, the idea behind my project is that while attending university the phrase I have heard most often is "They don't teach you... (enter own text) at university". This has ranged from things like students complaining about Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign which are all tools that a Graphic Designer might use in their daily job, to more generalised statements about the level of teaching at this stage of study. My intended approach was to create a series of signs that used a multitude of software, media, and techniques that may not necessarily have been taught in individual classes at university, but could be learned in part and then pieced together to create something that exceeds the sum of its parts.
"They Don't Teach You This @ University" is a statement with dual meaning, the techniques shown are not taught at university, yet they have been learned and executed while I was there.
It should provoke a thought like "What's holding you back?" or "What's your excuse?"
Anyway, here's some nice pictures of my work so far.
