Resubmission: Client Website

I started by talking to an author who only had a forum for visitors to discuss his work and wants to eventually expand to market his stories and also have a blog to communicate through a more interactive and illustrated means. I suggested a word press blog, Keeping people up to date, and have something nice to look at. The URL to the website is down below, hosted on my domain as they do not have one at the moment.


 These three icons I updated in the style font style the client chose for his site. It adds uniformed style while keeping them recognisable. The Æ favicon is used as the icon to the page, viewable in Tabs and on phones.

The blog page is using one of the fonts that the author liked, named K22 Monastic, available from the links below. When I went through the design with him he said that he envisioned a cross through the O, and created one in red to match his forum, however he decided that he wanted to match the blog over it and I changed the colour to suit.

Out of all the themes, the one the client decided on was the ESPO theme. The theme is blue with hints of gold, his forums are red with gold. He seemed happy with the change, and I installed the theme. I changed the background by finding a royalty free pattern from http://subtlepatterns.com, and then removed most of the clutter that came installed. I then changed some of the images, altering the social icons and title. I offered to create title pictures for his novel pages for the featured images, and he was content with the outcome.

These two pictures are some simple and nice graphics which I created for him as the titles to two of his novels. They appear on the front page alongside a short description of the writing.I made the featured images with some 3D and photoshop work. I applied simple Cinema 4D materials onto the models and added some lighting.

The client seems to love how the website has turned out. It’s still early stages, he asked if I could continue to design the website and illustrations for his novels.

Day 3 of the Exhibition

I wasn’t in yesterday, having a little day off to rest and relax a bit. Today I went in with a few other students, it was mostly quiet, but a close friend of mine turned up and she was really impressed with my work. I spent a fair amount of time walking her around and explaining everyone’s work to her. I also got some wide angle shots with my camera’s Fish-Eye lens, and recorded some footage for Jade as she explained her project piece, and Jon too, showing his looping artwork on 3 monitors.


Business Card Front

Possible Contacts

The exhibition show went well. Quite a few of my business cards went away with other people, which I’m happy about. I spoke to a few people who seemed quite interested in my work too. One of whom says they’re currently working on the new James Bond film, Spectre, and previously worked on The Avengers films. I look forwards to communicating with him more.

It’s the final stretch now, 29th is my hand in date, and I’m doing quite well.


Day of the Exhibition

Today is the day of the exhibition. Martyn drove me and Nick there in the morning, with a boot full of alcohol for the refreshments table whilst there. There was quite a bit of setting up to do in the morning, the show didn’t start until 5:00PM. I set up my camera overlooking the event, and had it recording throughout, setting up and the main event.

A few of us won’t be coming in on the Friday, myself included. I’ve been really exhausted over the past few days, but I’ll be back in for Saturday.

Ashwick Showreel

I took some renders of various parts of the street work, and created a showreel for the end of year show. This showreel will be played on the muted projector and on my own Mac with a podium of my 3D prints of some of the models I made. The 3D prints were not very well manufactured unfortunately, but they work for showing attracting attention and showing off my work.


3D Printing

For my exhibition, I decided to get some 3D printed models to display some of my work. The idea was sound, but the process was not.

After getting quotes with various companies, I found one that can provide the model for a reasonable price. There was a lot of back and forth discussion and I had to make several tedious revisions to the model to meet the printer’s minimum specification. A lot of the parts of my model was less than 0.6mm, and the printer may not be able to print things that small. I made sure every part of the model was to specification, and sent it off, saying that because it’s fragile I would pick it up myself rather than through a courier.

Around 5 days after sending it off, the prints arrived at my front door, and they arrived damaged, and most parts missing. This was really disappointing, but I had to make do with what I’ve got because there wasn’t enough time to correct it and re-print it. The extent of the damage is, in short, the head model was completely destroyed, most of the strands were broken, and the centre logo was not attached to the post it was attached to, and the bar was missing its stools around the tables, in front of the bar itself, and the pool table was missing its balls. Additionally it looked like the table top had broken off, and then was glued back on.
