Month: November 2019
Today is the day.
I am submitting for grading my first big report at Uni, I am quite proud of what I created. Ever since I got the brief for this assignment, I spent most of my free time (which is usually between 9pm and half past midnight), doing the research, designing and producing the logo and outputs and writing 2000 words report.
If you’re curious how the finished product looks like in all it’s glory, you can view it on my Behance portfolio here. For lazy or time-constrained, here are some snippets…Continue reading
Show your work! by Austin Kleon is the book I mentioned in the last post (which you can read here). It’s a nice, easy to read guide, that you can enjoy reading everywhere, due to it’s handy, small format.

Hello! I’m Kat. As you can read in a little bio on the right of the page, I’m a first year student of Web Design and Development. But I’m not a typical student… I’m 26, have an amazing three year old daughter, a husband and a part-time job. Oh! I’m also a photographer in a spare time!
Ok, going back to why we are all here. I red a great book recently. It’s actually one of the books from one of my uni modules’s reading list, so thank u, Martin, for putting it up there so I could discover it. The book I’m talking about is “Show your work!” by Austin Kleon.
I decided to listen to the book’s advice and create a little place in the Internet for my development. I will take u behind the scenes of the stuff I do, show my little creations and share more or less organised thoughts of a mature student.
Welcome on board, hope you’ll enjoy the journey with me!
