BUT! The main reason I went down was to check out what the cream of the crop from other universities had been up to, and eff-me it opened my eyes! I could recite a list of so many other new designers and illustrators who inspired me from the work I saw today.
The main thing I learnt though was that I need to develop my own practises and work on putting more love into my work, as it hit me that I mostly only make work because I find it quick and easy. But if I really put some personality and feeling into it it'd be something else.
Big well done to Westminster Uni, you wiped the floor with everything else and really deserved the Best of Show slot!
Anyways, great to be in London, great to get away from the depressing Hull scene and great to drink free beers with about a hundred other designers whilst watching the world cup. That was the best socializing/networking aspect of the day ;)......even though England lost.
As mentioned before I'm out of the country for a week. I've got a lot of fresh stuff on my mind right now and I'll be scribbling down new ideas and shit when I'm away so expect new uploads and portfolio pieces in the coming month. Time to sort my working practice out and move closer towards being the best I've ever been.
