New Year, New Updates

After spending a month back home, I'm back for my final semester at CCAD. Here's a brief rundown of what's been happening lately:
 

Website

I spent part of my winter break refining this site, from its overall design to the content throughout. Although it's taken me some time to become accustomed to Squarespace, I'm feeling much better about how I appear online.
 

Twitter

For my Copywriting for New Media class, I'm required to set up a personal Twitter account. When I have everything up and running in the next day or two, I might consider incorporating it into this site somehow.
 

Heroes Project, Part 2

Once again, I've been tasked with interviewing another influential figure in the world of design. This time around, I've chosen to contact Ryan Chapman, a London-based artist who does a large amount of editorial illustration in a decidedly graphic style. He recently expressed his interest in answering some questions, and I intend to follow up with him tomorrow. I'm not certain if I can Skype with him, but I'll probably receive great information all the same. Here's a sampling of his work:

Ad/Graph Thesis Project

This will be my biggest Ad/Graph project to date, with the entire process spanning almost the entire semester. Last week, our class was given a somewhat formal introduction to the objectives, challenges, and past examples of the thesis show. This week, I will begin my search for the concept that I'll explore. It's a daunting task, but between my peers, instructors, and other resources, I'm sure I'll find that big idea. By next week, I would love to have an idea selected at the very least.


I might have very well left out a few details, but those are some of the biggest developments as of late. You can expect a new blog post every week going forward.
