Firstly….you have to watch this. I couldnt go because I was working. But my brother went and it was pretty awesome!!
Imagine if that was your work projected on that buliding…….
anyway also plans for 2012. i got an internship at Nobrow on 6th January, well excited.
Also might be helping out the display team at Urban Outfitters with window displays and general look of the store and possibility of working with the graphics team in their head office. But thats a maybe at the moment.
Just wanna say that I’m really excited. I love looking at what everyone has been upto. I wish I had some more exciting news….but i dont. Back to Blackpool for christmas, cant wait!
much love xx
So i went for my interview wit Peter at Don’t Panic today, things went really well and he wanted me to start straight away but i didn’t have my laptop with me so we decided i start tomorrow
Well, the final deadline for our 26 Stories of Christmas illustrations is today. I’m not going to post what I did just yet, it feels like it would spoil the advent-calendar-esque nature of the idea. I’ll certainly provide a link once mine’s published on the website next month, though!
I also completed a small brief for an application to work with new company Bloc+Blur who do film, photography and design for the music industry, which will be exciting if they like my work and take me on.
Also in the news for this week, on Friday I took part in the V&A Friday Late event with Visual Editions with some other DPS students. We were part of a 150 person group of Reader Outlouders and did a museum-wide performance piece based on Marc Saporta’s book Composition No.1, which consists of 150 loose pages that can be shuffled and read in any order so that each reader experiences the story differently. Each Reader Outlouder was given a different page and had to read it over and over again for 3 hours (or as long as we could until we needed to take a break!) and the visitors could come and listen to us in any order, just like they could read the pages in any order. It was an interesting experience but my voice was rather hoarse by the end of it!

Last Sunday, I got a table at Handmade & Bound fair with some LCC 3rd Year Illustration to promote and actually selling our designed stuffs ( screen-printed posters / fanzines / booklets / postcards etc ). It was a really successful day for us, best location as we got the first table near the entrance. Surprisingly a lot of people turned up, the fair was packed for the whole day, we sold out most of the stuffs, gained useful experiences on how and what to prepare for events like this!
I’ll definitely look out for more events like this to participate. Not only I can getting my works out there, getting people’s feedback, but also I can get some money out of my creativity as well!
A few of us who are working on the 26 Stories of Christmas project met up today. We all seem to have really sad stories! It was good to see what people were doing, though. I’m pretty sure I’m on track with my illustration for “A Christmas Letter from my Dad” where Cassie’s terminally ill father has written her an uplifting letter when she was a baby to read after he has gone.
Here’s what I’ve got so far, the colour needs a bit of tweaking and I want to add more detail, then hopefully it’ll be looking pretty finished.
Look forward to it being published online in December!
Been a while since i’ve updated. I’ve been pretty busy here working Mon-Fri (sometimes even Saturday) just to meet client deadlines.
Like I mentioned in my previous post, I was originally meant to intern at Publicis Manila but decided to take upon the offer from World Impact Comms as they offered to teach me the ins and outs of advertising not just the creative side.
I’m currently learning the media and accounts side of the agency.
This opportunity has given me a deeper insight into how things work in an ad agency but I gotta say, I still prefer the excitement that the creative side gives you.
Here’s an example project I was part of:
I also did some print ads for this particular client.
One of the key things i’ve learned is the big difference in culture of South East Asia when it comes to Advertising.
Creatively, they’re behind as the advertising is very mainstream and celebrity obsessed.
Though it has its benefits as you get to go to a lot of celebrity-packed events.
In other news, after I finish with this agency on December, I will be looking to work for either McCann Worldwide or Ogilvy & Mather in Manila.
If neither works out, I have Lowe / Publicis to fall back on.
I know this is a rather dry post but i’m a little tired so what the heck…
Just want to say congrats to the LCC team(s) who won the dove competition.
Keep representing .
Till’ next time.
I have finished my internship in Paris, and have now arrived in New Zealand! I will be travelling here for a bit before continuing on to Melbourne where I’ll have my second internship. I’ve got a few photography and video projects going on here, and you can see more of my pics on my flickr http://www.flickr.com/blaisechatelain/
