Professional Contexts 2 - Web Evaluation

I found the professional context 2 web module to be challenging. I have finally learned the basic language of html5 and css3 and am now capable of building and designing my own website using Adobe Dreamweaver. At first it was hard to start and get the hang of coding and wire framing. Although it was challenging, I kept looking back at the presentations we had done in class and overcame my difficulties, I also found the videos made by Jules to be extremely helpful as well as easier to follow. In the end I came up with a really good one page website, I am amazed at the final result, I am looking to find a host and domain to upload it online.

Professional Contexts 2 - Motion Evaluation

I was excited to hear about a project on a motion poster. It was something I had never done before and I enjoyed doing it. I learned many techniques and became even better at Adobe After Effects and more confident in my abilities. Although it was fun, at times it was a bit of a time waste. I think the web module should have been longer because it requires more work and time. Besides that, it was a good experience in my student years and I look forward on doing more designs for companies.

These are some designs of stickers which will be stuck on the bottom of my self promotional container.
One design is to express the steps of applying style. So I rewrote the steps I take to do my hair (as the container is my hair gel container) with how I take on briefs and projects.

Design two is the ingredients, what it took to create this self promotional item in other words. 
I like both ideas, I think they blend with the concept of my self promotional item.

Back of my circle designs which be placed inside my self promotional container. I now need to print them out and  cut them with a circle compass.

These are the front sides of my circle designs. I have used my colour scheme and font throughout the designs again to establish brand identity. The reason I used these images for my designs is because they are on my website as well, so people can refer to my website for more information and to that certain project. 
I wanted to keep it simple, so design agencies want to see more of my work, and not get bored of my self promotional item.

Some t-shirt designs with my logo. I like how the design is simple, yet the logo stands out along with the yellow stripe on the sleeve.
