After a successful brainstorming session with my diploma in web development students, one of my students passed on a moment capturing our ‘storming’. Today, I had another session with my certificate IV web development students and it occurred to me that the days of ‘storming’, ideas generating and graphic design development are some of my best! Thank you to all my dedicated and hard working students for making my day[s].
Somehow, even after two uni degrees, this one seems to take the cake – a Graphic Design Diploma!
Is it that it is more aligned to my role of teaching design? Perhaps the timing is right? Or more likely it is simply that I have found my calling? None the less, this one will be taking pride of place in my studio! I can’t wait to take it to the next level .. but will little ole Nowra TAFE [even Wollongong TAFE] offer that level? No, they don’t.
Well then, perhaps it’s time I made use of the skills I’ve learned and created something satisfying and worthwhile? Like some of the work I created for the diploma.
It’s the end of another academic year and I really wanted to do something to finish the year with more than just a ‘good bye and good luck’. Each and every student who finishes this year’s design class will have created some interesting and thoughtful designs. I wanted to celebrate all their hard work without making it hard for them to leave the room [due to potential cranial expansion].
So, I created a short ‘trailer-like’ video showcasing their earlier works and the their later graphic designs that ended up inside their finished web sites.
I am a teacher and designer of visual and media arts.
My site showcases some of my illustration and hand-drawn designs. Most of my imagery has been created by hand using a strong sense of imagination, whilst incorporating ideas from print media, television and everyday objects.
I usually develop my creations using various sketching techniques and ocassionally converting them into digital art using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. Check out my site and feel free to get in touch.
I hope you enjoy ..
