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
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.
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.
My dissertation is on Family Photography and this clip from the Royal Family more or less sums it up.
