Hooray!!! Are Ink Bar design's been picked!

At last! We've finally been given some good news for this brief. They have settled on a logo.

Vicky, Luke, Megan, James and me have had a thorough meeting with Chloe about where to go with this next. Basically, now they have settled on a logo, Chloe wants us to produce all the media for the Ink Bar. That includes;
Window graphics
A Website
A Web banner, basically the works!

Luke and me have already said we would love to produce a website for them. I personally wanted to do a website instead of the graphics because we have done so much of that already not only this year but last year and it would be great to start making websites now so I feel more confident about making one for myself in our final major project.

Although we are currently being taught Dreamweaver and how to make websites, I personally still feel competent enough to produce a fine piece of work for the Ink Bar.

Here is the chosen logo.

PAL (Round 4)

Today we thought it would be best for the first years if we helped them out with their time management. I was at first uneasy about doing this with them because I think its quite demeaning and patronising to some of the first years, especially as I am probably younger than most of them and they probably manage their time a lot better than me!
However, when we sat down with them all and asked them if they wanted to or not, they were really up for it! If anything, they seemed to respond really well to the lesson plan and hopefully come away with some good tips from each other.

Today was a first though. At the end of the hour they actually knew what they wanted to cover next week! They all stated they were unsure about what to expect at their final hand in and critique next week so Vicky, Luke and I have told them to bring in all their work next Monday so we can have a Mock Crit. Hopefully we can give them a taste of what to expect and help them prepare for it with confidence.
