I'm currently trying to make a website using the program iWeb. Here are some screenshots.

text vs. life conversation book

 This is a single signature book that I started working on. I want it to be about the size and shape of my phone - with rounded corners.

Ad exploration

I did some direct plugs of my logo's into their respective companies existing advertisements. My next step is to make my own advertisements in their style, and switch up the tag lines.

Spring Reflection / End of Semester Plans

The opening for Proximity was about what I expected. I don’t think there was too much trouble. Installing the work was confusing at first, and I did have some trouble formatting DVDs for the screens I was given, but I was happy with the result. If I could change something about it I would’ve put the demo reel I just made into the show. I also wish I had some good quality concept sketches to put in the show, but that would pushing the boundaries of how much space I was given, which I was already doing. I would feel a lot more comfortable about installing another show in the future.
            My senior thesis project is technically completed, but in my eyes it’s the bare minimum of completion. A lot was cut out of my project to make sure that it was ready to be on display at my senior show. Right now, it’s satisfactory to me, but I will come to be more proud of it once it goes through a lot more tweaking. It’s very unpolished compared to the work I usually produce; it doesn’t even have sound yet. I will resume this project, but I do think I pushed myself past my limits while working on it and I need to take some time away from it so I can be more enthusiastic about coming back to working on it later. There are other things I have to work on in the meantime. I do promote myself already by posting my videos on websites YouTube and Vimeo, but I need to go even further and find even more video sites to post my work on. I have already made a demo reel, as suggested during my review before the show, and I am currently working on making a business card for myself, although I won’t have it printed until I can find myself a permanent address. I also need to make a website for myself, which I’m looking forward to doing. I also have been brainstorming ideas for animations I can make after graduation, so I keep myself busy. I don’t really have a deadline for any of these tasks, but I work fast and it’s safe to say most of it can be accomplished in the remaining month before graduation.

show photos / new ideas

I recorded a full conversation in my kitchen and I pulled out the parts during which I was texting. I transcribed the whole thing and typed up the texts (typos and all) alongside the parts of real conversation that surrounded them. It's all really silly. I don't know whether I want to use images or just text. I also have no idea how I really want to handle the texting part of it vs. the conversation going on simultaneously.

Below is a rough idea of how I would lay out each snippet of conversation - as a spread in a book.
