    A few of those look really good, including yours. I really really wanna go to Uni for these sorts of projects, the stuff we're doing in college is piss poor. If I didn't already have a steady design job, and if I had the cash to burn, I'd definitely be more open to it. Which uni are you at?

    I go to the University of the West of Scotland but its pretty terrible they have set 3 compulsory spec work briefs in the last week. One of which is design a logo and the winner gets £100.

    We had a couple like that last year, designing for the local YMCA, no prize cos it's for a charity obviously, but one recently we had to do advertising for a nightclubs silent disco, first prize got £30, the club got a full set of posters/flyers/stickers...

    I think whats worse is that the lecturers actually thought it was a good idea. Sucks about that silent disco thing, where do you go?

    regardless of your stance on spec it is always good practice working to a brief, working against competition and working to a deadline.

    if you ignore the spec element you will be gaining some useful skills, try to think of it as an opportunity to imagine a client instead of a speculative project.

    you are in a university setting and have to remember that its easier for a tutor to set a project for a whole group than it is to police and mark 30 individual projects. yeas that could be seen as spec, but at this stage you need to focus on what it could teach you.

    For sure the whole point of uni is to do project you wouldn't do/set yourself but my point was more they haven't bothered to write their own briefs they either reuse the old D&AD briefs or find spec work competitions to do. Other people in the class don't know about spec work and the lecturers aren't saying that this could be a bad habit to get into. I don't think thats right for a uni to do but maybe thats just me?

    lots of uni's set D&AD briefs and look for outside competitions, its the way its done as far as i am aware (i did some of both at uni)
    if you know better thats great, but damn man... you are paying for this course, stop complaining and start learning whatever you can from it. get your moneys worth no matter what they are throwing at you. write your own briefs, find your own clients and submit it as uni work. your tutors will love you taking control, trust me.

    You make a fair point. You get out what you put in I guess.

    I go to Southport College, and our tutor loves those sort of things. He actually made a project based around his own charity drive across europe for us to do last year. He wanted us to organise events to raise money for it. He split us into groups to handle money, events, getting posters and stickers printed, designing the stickers and posters and looking for suitable cars for him. Needless to say it fell through. Why he thought getting a load of design students to look for cars and organise charity events was a good idea to work towards our qualification I'll never know. Im just glad I was on the design the poster and stickers team, so I actually had some design work to do.

    Since everyone seems to be making Drive posters I thought I'd fit in for my self esteem. Still a lot to do.

    My girlfriend started her own bow making Boutique and wanted me to make her some graphics for her Etsy and facebook page. So this is something I came up with for her. I'll probably design her a better logo when i get more time.


    I drew the zebra print myself.

    if you know any ladies that would be interested in some bows, tell them to check out her creations :]

    Just playing around with some ideas to freshen up self branding, it's always something I struggle with and something I can never settle on.

    The negative space within the circle is letting the mark down for me personally. The tail of the R doesnt flow well either, think the angle and its positioning is off. Other than that, i think its really nice, am sure it will turn out awesome.

    Thanks for the feedback, been playing a little more and I think I'm gonna settle on this.

    I'm digging the second one. Maybe leave some space between the h and the upper right leg of the K? Just a quick thought

  • khay

    That's actually a really good idea, thank you!
