lol.... beat you to it... first thing I did after I signed up...
Funny thing, I was looking at some of your Ibiza Rocks work & it took me here. Good job.
I'm aspiring at the moment, I finished a HND a while ago & I've had a few small freelance jobs.... stuff mainly for friends of a friend & family. I'm trying to get myself back in the game, been a while since I did anything graphical so I figured nows a good time to get inspired.
Just noticed ur from Kent, nice to meet a fellow kentishman online.
I think I graduated in 2009?! Yeah, that sounds right....
I new someone the year below you then called Natasha. I was a little unsure about that course but it was definitely more vocational than the course I was on (BA Graphic Design). They has a bit of an issue with the teacher in the last year because he was grading his students far higher than they should be in comparison to the other courses and level of work. People were coming away with 1st left, right and centre!
I left after the second year, so was more like a HND, but called a foundation degree I think, I don't recall a Natasha, she may have been in the year below me. I did hear a few rumours about the grading after I'd left, with our first two years the work was graded by a range of tutors but think it was just down to one for that final year.
I was interested in doing the BA in Graphic Design, but was trying to combine some web design work too, so the Graphic Media course allowed me to 'pick & mix' modules a bit
Typo - I know, we'll be needing a Kentish translator for all you Northerners soon
Firstly, I'm not from Kent! And secondly I would say, from an outside perspective, with no disrespect or snootyness?! but it isn't generally very nice, quite crass and common! haha But I'm sure Greg's accent is just wonderful!!
I think now, in retrospect, I may have been a little more interested in your course, but I'm still in two minds. I would be nice to do something more vocational, but then again, I don't really want to design dog biscuit packaging!! I did manage to incorporate some web into my projects, as you were quite free to write your own briefs in the latter part of the course.
Yep! A surprisingly large population! Honestly massive! haha It was quite disheartening to see a pretty girl walk along, then as soon as she opens her mouth, it's a deal breaker! Not that was a deal in the first place haha
Maybe you should've stayed on for the last year and you may have been knighted at the end of it! ha
I'm not really based anywhere at the mo... I need to set myself up. I did my HND in Canterbury, it was an affliated course with Norwich University & graduated in 08 was thinking of doing a BA top up after a year out then went travelling. It's been a while.... lol
Edit: Just wanted to say I'm very impressed with the site here, There are some very talented people around & a lot of proffessionals here too, well done DF, you've certainly got a top class community growing here.... I'm chuffed to find this place & I get the feeling I'm gonna be contributing a lot.
