I think I'm majorly failing at being a Graphic Designer. Apparently I was supposed to notice typeface and various types of signage styles while on my study tour........ Which I did not even notice......
I feel like I have to re-train my brain. I'm so used to thinking about architecture, space, how people move, etc. that I literally do not even notice the little sign that says "Exit". It's actually kind of strange. As an architect we're supposed to be so keen with details but there are so many other aspects of design that we merely push aside. I wish there was a way to incorporate more of other design fields. Maybe just study as a "designer"? That would be interesting.
I'm still working on my logo for the bike system. The name of it is "mycycle" and I'm pretty sure I'm taking the corny route, which is okay. It's supposed to be for tourists and a piece of Danish culture for them to latch onto. I really like my appraoch so hopefully something good will come out of it.. If I can figure out how to design a logo in two days... Ha!
Tomorrow I'll be going to Sweden for a study tour and I'm pretty excited about that! I love traveling so much. I love being in new places and seeing new things. It's so fascinating to me to LEARN. I'm a definition of a geek, I LOVE to learn everything and anything.
I'm watching the last debate of the elections here. I wish I knew what they were saying but I kind of get the gist of what's going on. I'm excited for Thursday/Friday to see who wins!
Lesson for today... hmmm... don't be afraid to ask for help. I struggled with trying to print for so long and
