1. > Students! - UK Degree Shows 2013

    Now that wemadeashow.co.uk is live. I sent the details to this website for their directory

  2. More problem solving today creating the app. On the Exquisite Type page I’ve added a pop up info box. On the Type Brut page I created before a big scroller that was taking up most of the page would not allow you to scroll to the next page. I got around this by extending the canvas vertically and scrolling it all rather than a pull up area. This somehow worked. On opening the page you get a large image slideshow which can be changed with the camera button.

  3. Looking for images to include on the Typo London page of the app and came across this! Irma Boom was my favourite

  4. Today was a craft day. We made some mini brand guideline books for quick reference to colour values and logo usage. Megan re-printed the pages on her ink-jet as from previous experience the laser printer didn’t like the card we wanted to use. I also put together the boxes which I screen printed with Douglas last week. These will hold the 3D logo which is 4 separate boxes linked together with slot tabs as when we tried with glue it didn’t look quite right. Shown here is the b+w final mock up. The template will be available to download from the STF website soon.

    Overall we are really happy with these, but one thing we would like to have done is screen print the brand guidelines cover with white rather than black.

    Me and Megan have both been on different placements during our NMP as well as being involved with the DNA quiz, which has meant some things were put on hold and more work during the evenings. I’m now concentrating on NMP while Megan has placement on wed/ thurs. Jo suggested that I team up with a second year for an extra pair of hands to help me out. Douglas, who came from Brazil to study here, has been really helpful and he’s learning on the job which is also a benefit to him. His first task was to photocopy and cut the Type Brief posters and put them around uni. 

    Last week Douglas discovered the process of screen printing and he helped me cut the paper to the right size, mix the paints, mark out the screen and swap over the tote bags- which had to be done quickly as the screen dries up quite quickly. I haven’t screen printed since first year and now I can see why as the process is time consuming and the results don’t always turn out as expected.

    The tote bags turned out really good but the prints on paper didn’t go so well. I think the reason was not putting enough paint down as I needed to cover a larger area and I don’t think the squeegee liked me.

  5. > I Made a Test Page

    Today I’ve done a spot of coding for the holding page I mocked up yesterday for We Made a Show. I’m using site44.com to test out the page. It converts html, css files etc from Dropbox in to a working site with url anyone can view.

    I’ve also updated the page for the pub quiz with new images and taken of the eventbrite bit

  7. Messing around creating the holding page for We Made a Show. It needs to go live asap because the web address has been bought and is on the We Made a Party posters around uni and I got us listed on typethatilike. The party logo will go to an online PDF, the pub quiz logo will click through to the DNA site. And I need to put the twitter link on there.
Just waiting to get the hosting sorted and get the holding page up. Then after hand-in I can start adding the images of work to the actual site. 
In case you missed it - for hand-in on the 10th May I need - 
2-5 images 580px wide or videos (must be uploaded to vimeo), a bio/description of around 40 words and links to portfolio sites/ twitter (3 max). These should be uploaded to dropbox. See facebook/ emails for log-in details.

  8. This is the completed A-Z page. Very happy with how this has turned out. The layout really compliments the animations and the colour scheme works well as always.
