You may have noticed that I have been working on my index page for the site (harrietbaggley.co.uk). I plan to have two other pages; the shop and the portfolio. But in the mean time I am teaching myself, with some- okay, a lot of advice from my first year Digital Applications lecturer. He recommended this […]
My poster arrived today, I ordered it from a company in the UK called Swiftprint. Apparently it was cheaper through their ebay link ! I paid £4.25 for an A2 Satin poster of my final chess set design. It arrived in durable packaging and the quality of the print was excellent. Would definitely recommend.
My hand-illustrated carnation prints have arrived from moo.com ! (You can see the journey on older posts.) I’m so happy with the quality of them. I have a set of seven and plan to sell them in the Bentalls’ pop-up shop in September. They still need tweaking; I wanted to handwrite my website on […]
I’ve finished ordering my set of sixty postcards ! There will be seven different design thanks to moo.com’s useful option of selecting more than one design. And here is what they will look like:
After drawing A1 sketches of my carnations and after seeing how colourless my final submission space was I decided to create new pieces of work combining the ideas. I did some tests with various pens and paints and decided that the watercolour was the best ! I then had an idea of creating postcards using […]
Here is my final design for my chess set using Cinema 4D. The effect of the floral pattern did not work as well as I had hoped; you can not see the pattern unless you are looking straight at the pieces. To save the image as a jpeg.and at a high enough resolution to print […]
I was then asked to produce my own design for a chess set that could be produced using a 3D printer, was unique and easy to use. The course has a lot to do with interdisciplinarity and encourages connections across the modules so I decided to keep the main frame simple and fill it with […]
We were asked to re-create the Bauhaus chess set using Cinema 4D to allow us to become familiar with the program. This is what the program looks like when in use. At first it was all quite overwhelming but once you learn the basics (I used this link here if ever I forgot anything taught […]
We have been set a new project for Digital Applications- to design a chess set and create it in Cinema 4D. We were given the example of the Bauhaus set, which is very simple and designed to fit easily into a small box. The pieces were designed on their function/move.
Experimenting with LiveTrace on Abdobe Illustrator and my floral patterns. Will eventually take the time to trace the pattern properly but it is interesting to see what different types of interpretations can be produced.
I stumbled across this article when looking at 3D printing. It ties in nicely with some ideas and thoughts that have been gathering in my head about the throwaway society we live in. It’s time for a change and this could be one way of contributing.
Today we were introduced to Cinema 4D. It’s amazing how quickly you can prototype objects. Might have been handy for other projects.
Saw this laser cut work on the Razorlab site. Aren’t they wonderful? They are made by a small company called ‘Below The Boat‘.
My laser cut design is finished and ordered. Things I have learnt: -Illustrator is temperamental. Or maybe I lack sufficient knowledge. But I’m going with the former. -Designing and making ‘products’ is tough and costs money; fingers crossed that it will have been worth it. And I really enjoyed coming up with design ideas (perhaps my […]
