Just a link for easier access to the video.
It’s the second week of our 3rd Term Project. I chose the Branding Project and for this Friday (Today) we are supposed to bring in a short video of our research and our progress on creating a brand. I will write a bit more in my upcoming blog posts about the project itself and every detail of it. Until then, check out the video!
Use the link below for normal HD quality! I repeat, use the ‘PowToon’ link! Not YouTube player. YouTube gives crap quality because I had troubles exporting the video and I am just posting it as a player just in case the link stops working. Either way, if you have any comments, suggestions or tips, please feel free to comment and write me!
For the first CTS session after our easter break, we were asked to bring in a presentation by using the Pecha Kucha method of our chosen subject / question of our essay.
The original Pecha Kucha essentially is a short presentation of 20 slides 20 seconds each (more info at http://www.pechakucha.org). We were asked to do a shorter version of 10-12 slides approx. 18 seconds each. I chose my question from my CTS Tutor’s Mark Ingham’s lecture and it is:
SNAP, CRACKLE AND POP: Imagine a world without photographs?
So these are the links to the presentation where I cover and answer Why, How, What, Who, Where and When questions regarding my subject:
- Plan from March 24th backwards. Think of time, which will need to be invested.
- Finalize max 1 week before deadline to have time to print the research document.
- Think of changing the research document orientation from landscape to portrait
- Think about the audience for all projects
- Best format to bring in for Crimes Against Design
- Too much text in research document
- No copying from internet (unless sourced and not very lots of text)
- Images only 300 DPI, not less.
- Volunteering from friends?
- Even spaces
- Experiment with lighter colours
- Arts intervention heading
- Make borders differently
- Two columns on bank sys page
- Widows. Clear them
- A bit more explaining in text
- No borders

Chapter 2: Reading for Academic Purposes
• A consideration of the central role of reading in your study
• The idea of ‘active reading’
• The importance of what is known as ‘clear thinking’ whilst reading
• The description of different strategies for effective reading
• The idea that you should always challenge what you read
• The importance of keeping a record of what you read
The main idea that I am concentrated at the moment for my Friday Project. If you guys have any suggestions for improvement please feel free to comment or write me. Thanks!
