When I look at my body of work, I see my interests and experiences reflected in the pieces. GlobalVision and my Italy book were inspired by my travels, the wedding rebrand was inspired by my love of wedding photography and design, my personal manifesto that served as a takeaway reflected my personal values along with my growing interest in hand lettering, etc. I think my work really shows the progress I’ve made in the past 2+ years as a student at Framingham state. When I first started in the program, I knew next to nothing about design and how to go about solving problems as a designer. Looking at my work now, I am very pleased with my progress I’ve made.
Putting together a gallery show was quite the process, but it really helped me narrow down specific projects that were more developed than others. The process also gave me a glimpse into what goes into putting on a show, the materials involved (and the money), and how teamwork is a huge part of the process. We had a really great group of students that work well together and I think that played well into the entire process of setting the show up. Setting up the show and seeing how all my work fits together was also helpful in seeing my process and how I approach my concepts.
As for future projects, I would really like to expand on the wedding rebrand. I want to work on creating a solid logo and a welcome booklet/package. I’d also like to work on my personal photography business by creating my own logo and business card. In addition, I’d like to develop my hand lettered quote book as well. I have the images and quotes, but I need to work on my concept more and the summer will be the perfect time to do that.
