One of the most exhibition I really liked when I was in Istanbul Modern Museum was called ‘La La La Human Steps’; an exhibition that brings works by both old masters and contemporary artists from the Museum of Boijmans Van Beunniggen in Netherlands. 28 artists present their selection of paintings, prints, photographs, videos and installations. …
I’m a quarter of the way through my internship at Don’t Panic now. It was quite a quiet week last week, I worked a lot on branding for the company itself, making designs for new letterheads, business cards and compliment slips.
I’d been getting a lot of headaches at the office, not used to staring at the computer screen for long periods of time and the fluorescent lights. This week, though, I didn’t wear my glasses at all which… somehow helped. Although I’m getting less headaches, though, my eyes are still getting very tired, I think I’m going to have to start taking walks outside at lunchtimes. Maybe when it’s less wet!
Today I did a couple of art audio walks – one called And While London Burns and one by Jane Cardiff called The Missing Voice (Case Study B) – in preparation for meeting with the rest of the Artsadmin Youth Board in a couple of weeks. We’re hoping to come up with an audio walk of our own, guiding people around London as we tell our own stories about the places they see.
During my last month in Melbourne, I undertook one of the YCN briefs. I chose the M&S one because I had enjoyed working on beer packaging for my internship and wanted to try out packaging a bit more. For the photo shoot I took my friends to the Motel California, an very nice abandoned hotel.
After week two at Don’t Panic I’m getting into the flow of it. I’m more confident with my layouts and they had me making a Photoshop mockup of a 3D billboard which I was a lot more comfortable with (they seemed impressed). I’ve also been doing a bit of branding for the company, coming up with ideas for their business cards and letterheads.

March 2012, I was in Istanbul for a week for the event called ‘IKSV Design Biennial Workshop’ carried out by several institutions and teams such as Domaine de Boisbuchet, Mede in Sishane & Design Quartiers Ehrenfeld , TAG platform and so on. The workshop was open to undergraduate students studying urban, environmental, architecture, graphic and fashion and new media design departments. I took part at TAG platform that specializes on urban design and raising awareness in urban environments. The platform was focused on the relation of people to the city and design problems in the city. The workshop was analyzing and the elements that make life harder for people in Karakoy streets in Istanbul. We looked around the area to describe the following elements; the traffic circulation, road signage, focal points and use of space for pedestrians. At the end of the workshop we were asked to display a campaign that labels the ‘conflict’ areas of the city.

It has been a miserable week here, it has been raining pretty much everyday this week and grey grey skies. There was one break where it was nice enough to sit outside during lunch and sit in the sun for an hour which was nice!
My first project they gave me has finally been approved and was formally published online yesterday. All exhibition panels are available online to download and even change into other languages for all to use. It’s mostly for the member states if they want to put on an exhibition about ESO’s 50th anniversary.
I also recieved my ESO staff card with my face on it today-very exciting! These 3 weeks working at ESO so far have either been in the past (producing the time line for the exhibition panels) or the future! These past two weeks I have been designing the 2013 calendar and the Christmas party and menu.
One of the other interns have been given the job to do the Annual report which I’m a little jelous of. I genuinely wanted to do that one! Perhaps we can swap projects on Monday.
Also I’m not in the dark anymore! Hurrah! After almost 3weeks in the dark, I can finally see the light. Very pleased.
Taking part in an exhibition with another alumnus from my old school. They’ve recently refurbished a building and got exhibition space. So here is the invitation for that.
I also did a freelance job for XCITY magazine which is a magazine for alumni from City University. A little info-graphic, personally wasn’t that happy with it, but they loved it, so can’t complain!!
Also entered the Graphic Design D&AD brief with Cris Lu.
