Well, it clearly has been a long time since I last had a look at this blog. In the meantime, there has been quite a lot of change.
After finishing my BA in Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins in Summer 2014, I moved back to Luxembourg, stayed in Toronto for a couple of weeks and then, returning to Luxembourg, started working at Comed Luxembourg as a graphic designer for one year and a half. I participated in ‘Design – Resolute Change, Luxembourg Postscript’ with my Manifesto at the Casino Forum d’Art Contemporain in Luxembourg in spring 2015, and sold design objects at the Marché des Créateurs at MuDAM Luxembourg in the summer. Since Autumn 2015 I have integrated the Luxembourgish local design collective ‘In Progress’, participated in the 2016 Luxembourg Design Biennale with the ‘Local Craft Meets Design’ opening exhibition in spring 2016.
At the moment, I am doing an MA in Visual Communication – Experimental Communication pathway at the Royal College of Art in London. So I am playing around and exploring (my) limits, and I won’t promise updates regularly as I don’t know yet how I am going to go forward, but, yes, I’m still here 🙂
So… have a good 2017, and maybe see you soon or not so soon!
(PS: Thanks for reading!)
Christmas Break is over, and it was a really nice one,
but now I’m trying to buckle up and get back to work.
What is on the to do list?
Finishing my two projects from Unit 5,
Starting the third and last one from Unit 5,
Blogging about it on the CSM Blog,
Working on my Portfolios and Tumblrs,
Sending out Internship applications for Summer Break,
Finishing the Sketchbook Project before January 15th,
Designing a CD Artwork for this one,
Making a large-scale Drawing of a landscape, commissionned,
Designing a Concert Poster for these ones,
and um, a few Poster and Logo Design Commissions that aren’t that definite yet.
I’ve got some catching up to do.
Oh, and you can have a look at my CSM Blog right here.
It’s All in The Bigger Picture
Time goes by so fast!
We’re already very close to Christmas Month December, and the Christmas Lights at Oxford Street have already been lit, the Iceskating Ranks are open, and, of course, Christmas Markets. It means we will soon be in Christmas Break, there are only two more weeks to go.
Currently, we stage 2 Students at the CSPD (Communication and Spatial Design School) from CSM, are in the middle of what they call The Bigger Picture. A month in which the 4 disciplines -Graphic Design, Architecture Design, Product Design and Ceramic Design- are mixed together to form a whole, then divided into groups again, all mixed up, in a meet-and-greet ambiance.
After the first week of 6 key-lectures (by the speakers Eliane Glaser, Evan Davis, James Woudhuysen, Anna Minton, Matthew Taylor and Angela Saini) about different issues in todays society, such as ideology, economy, power and security, from where we came up with three keywords for each lecture in our group seminars, we have now completed the second week, which consisted in the search of a question, for which we were again divided into new sub-groups. These sub-groups formed in each of the 14 groups were formed accordingly to the three keywords that each person chose out of all the keywords from the six lectures at the end of Week 1. Mine were: Authenticity/Inauthenticity, Controversy – Paradoxical Affect / ethics – responsibility, Sustainability & Innovation.
Yes, I know, all this is very confusing, but apparently it’s part of the game (you can read more about it on the Bigger Picture Blog here, the Group 12 Blog Here).
So now at the end of Week 2, there is one week left to work on a Group Presentation that will happen at the end of Week 3, in which we present our Research Question, and then go on to a Personal Essay in Week 4.
And then there’s Christmas Break!
(sorry for the complicated explanations, I will try to avoid this in the future)
So this is it! I am going to move to London at the end of September to continue my studies in the field of Graphic Design, in stage 2 BA (Hons) Graphic Design – Design & Interaction Route at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, University of the Arts London!
