    Came across this website whilst researching for a project I’m working on with a band to get their EP designed.

    They have a range of different ways of creating these cases, from cutout to pop up. They also seem to have a large range of different card and papers to make these from, which isn’t…

Font book is easily one of the best and most interesting apps I have downloaded, and I would recommend anyone you enjoys type to go and get their hands on it, at 69p it is a bargain.
The database is huge with every type of font you could want, with news sections for new releases and trending typefaces. The only problem is, if you don’t know what you are looking for it can be quite daunting. It has the ability to show you the typeface in all it’s variations such as weights and colours.
For me this is very useful to just have at hand, not only this but it has an attractive and simple to use interface. Everything a designer could want in an app.

  3. Professional Contexts 3

    I chose the web option because it’s definately the area I want to work in after uni and having Jason/ Andy from Shape teaching it wasn’t something I could miss out on. Originally I planned to re-do my portfolio site which I had on cargo collective. I did make lots of changes to it but this was mainly changing templates, structure tweaks and adding new projects. I felt it was more beneficial to start on a site for our degree show instead to which the tutors agreed. It was a good exercise for me as I learned an implemented lots of new techniques I hadn’t done before such as jQuery tweets, countdown, masonry and transitions. But it would also make sense to save time later on. It’s not online because the content is only dummy but I’ve put screenshots here. The interim feedback to my work was very positive but the white content column seemed a bit static against the full screen background image and it seemed quite thin and too far to the left. I agree with this but I made the decision on the width of 580px for a few reasons- based on when portrait images of work are put in, the full image can’t be seen without scrolling- High res images would make loading time slower.

    I will be updating the site with students work and restructuring slightly to fit our degree show theme. I will ask students for specific sized images in order to keep the site consistent.

    As well as the website I’ve also been up to some extra things. Looking back at my blog archive I’ve listed them below in a rough order since Sept 2012

    - Play Serious. I created a publication for the exhibition/ event 

    * Jules InDesign re-fresh for 22 Mag

    - Placement at Rocknine 1 day a week (still ongoing). The project they have given me will be part of my NMP and also may go live if the client likes it.

    - WIAW. Work for this placement has been published in magazines, brochures and website. I’m also currently doing a 2 metre high roll banner for an upcoming exhibition.

    - Salford Type Foundry. Me and Megan started with building the site in September and we also visited Pete from Every Last Pixel at Islington Mill for some help to start us off. As we’ve both done the web module we have learned new techniques from Jason which have been added.

    - Islington Mill on tour. A screen printing workshop in the egg at Media City

    - Typo London. Was amazing and a bit scary to preview STF there. There was also some free time to visit the Museum of London on the last day (to which the tutors also got on the wrong train back to Manchester)

    - Blab mini and Blab

    - Creative Lynx typo exhibition

    - Christmas Alumni awards at the Egg

    - Quite big tumblr theme reached 100,000 installs

    * 3D Workshop induction

    - Tech Hub. Went to the exhibition

    - I was involved in the final show organising (we made a…)

    * Jason Mayo Jquery extra session

    * Roberts talk on Tax and Invoices

    - Pub Quiz. I made the site, attended meetings and tweeted. And also updated the main DNA site with a few new images, links and news

    - Talent Day at the Town Hall

    * Hannah’s iPad training

    - Came to GFSmith Talk with Jane

    - Pub Quiz Goody Bag handing out

    - Submitted YCN entry

    * Hannah’s portfolio making

    * Jason Mayo design for mobile

    - Went to the Pub Quiz and showed my work to D2 Digital and Arena

    Our team also WON!

    - NVA Speed of Light volunteering (20th, 22nd, 23rd March)

    I’ve posted about all of the above which you can see at gdsu.tumblr.com

    Professional Contexts can be found at gdsu.tumblr.com/tagged/pc1

    My portfolio is georgedunkley.com

    I’m on LinkedIn too which acts as a CV which is easy to link to in an email. I also have a paper/ pdf version for printing and attaching to emails http://linkd.in/georgedunkley

  5. NMP on Pinterest

    Design for music

    Salford Type Foundry

    I’ve been putting up inspiration on Pinterest for both projects. Previously I have just used Dropbox when working in a team because it’s so easy to save files to. However the drawback to dropbox is that you can’t add much text to explain the images

  6. Here’s some screenshots from Mondays digital publishing workshop given by Hannah G. I was surprised at how simple creating an interactive iPad can be using InDesign CS6 and folio builder. I’m really glad I went to this and we have plans to make an STF iPad magazine after easter. Hannah went through the basic functions such as scrolling, video embedding, audio and hyperlinking.

    Creating the page for logo colours

    Above is a screenshot of the excel timetable me and Megan decided on last week.

    Todays job is to gather contacts to send our new brief to. And research/ start on the STF brand guidelines. Over time we have changed and modified the logos for various reasons and colours/ variations have got a bit muddled up (see Dropbox folder screenshot). The guidelines will help us with other part of the NMP project but also whoever takes over from us when we graduate.
