For this week, when I was finished designing and illustrating for the backdrop. I got Stacey and Jana to look over the design before sending it to Leigh and Grant for to look over (they are also going to the conference!). I also needed to get their approval before printing the backdrop as tiles and taping it together at the actual size. For the backdrop, I had an illustration Grant and Leigh at the bottom of the backdrop as part of the design. When Leigh got back to me with comments about the design, she said she’s not sure about the characters at the bottom of the backdrop because they might not be going to the conference next year, but they would like to reuse the backdrop. So, I took out the characters and put more textures and patterns at the bottom. After the design got approved, I printed the backdrop at the actual size as tiles and taped the papers together. (This process is similar to when we were designing and taping our grad booth together.) I was taping the booth at a working desk at the beginning because of the meeting room was being used at the time. It was quite a workout for me because the booth was around 7.5-foot tall haha, but it was a nice change to stand up and move around a bit! After the I put the booth all together in the meeting room (once the meeting was over), a lot of people help to taped the booth to a blank wall near the entrance so we can see what it looks like from a distance. I went back to adjusting the design (moving and changing elements) once Stacey and others pointed things out. Once the changes are made, I sent the booth design to Jana, Leigh, and Grant for approval again. Now, with approval, the booth had been sent to print and I can’t wait to see it!
Currently, I am working on 4 placemats for La Carreta. The hours are short for this project, so I have to work quick!
This Thursday, it was my turn for the class’s Instagram Takeover! This is to showcase our experience at the practicum and it was a lot of fun to do. I had the Canadian P. Eh (Personal Ehssistant hehehe) as the “tour guide” around the studio. It was also a lot of fun to have others in the studio to participate!
