Blog of the Week 7

for GMD 1 CTS 1 is:

Celeste Ho’s blog from group B:

https://celestehyx.wordpress.com/

CELESTE.H BA (HONS) GRAPHIC AND MEDIA DESIGN STUDENT

“This is a well designed blog with clear navigability on the right-hand side but better than that, it is full!. There is a place for both studio practice and CTS response to lectures with an abundance of great photographic images interspersed with writing commentary that picks out salient points from each lecture input – modest and appropriate.” Harriet Edwards

“Responding to a photograph we’ve taken during class, here’s mine”

Have a a look and comment on Celeste’s great work.

All the best

Blog of the Week 5 

as chosen by GMD 1 CTS 1 Group I

The group nominated Paloma Hababou’s blog, because it shows an excellent sense of initiative and evidence of independent research. Paloma has not only recorded CTS lectures in an original way, but she has reviewed exhibitions in London, and written a journal about current events, such as the news in Paris in January.
 –
There are two highly commended blogs in this group, attracting an equal number of votes. The student designers are Sam Underwood and Devni Liyanage.
 –
Sam has been chosen for his clear communication and very good subject knowledge, and Devni for her strong presentation and analysis of social and sustainable design.

Bleached Dreams – Troubling Places.

“Personally I find the tube stations of London to be a prime example of non-places. Vast amounts of people are guided through the tube system by signs and announcements on a daily basis, very rarely interacting with one another. There is no real unique identity within stations and once in there you can’t wait to leave. Witnessing the robot-like movements of people through these places, enhances my feeling towards areas of transit being definite non-places.”

Highly commended:  Devni Liyanage:
