The Future is Now

So Christmas was pretty cool got a new fitted, picked up a couple of pairs of Nikes, and I was totally surprised when I got this iPod touch from my parents. I hope everyone had a good Christmas and at least three people that read this throw up on new years like some weird chain letter. HAPPY HOLIDAYS BITCHES!

Braaap brap brap

I know I blog in groups, but I have to mull things over before I present them to the three people that read this. Its kind of an ebb and flow.

I just wanted to use this post to say I completely intend to continue to expose my thoughts about design and my future career to the public (aka maybe ten kids in my studio that keep up on this). I think a lot about this kind of thing, mostly in a narcissistic way as opposed to big design thoughts, but its my chosen career and I need to come to terms with where I want to fit in the grand design scheme of things.

One other thing, I really don't like notcot but i want to stay up on it (or abreast of current trends as those on the other side would say), so if anyone can hit me with some links to designish things I would be super siked. OMG thanks!

Desk of the Day is Dead! Long Live Desk of the Day.

So it was a while between my desk of the day posts, and it will probably be longer until I actually have a desk to blog about, because I'M ON FREAKIN' CHRISTMAS BREAK. Seriously I am siked to chill for a grip.

I think I learned a lot about doing work this quarter. I will be honest and say I was not really enthusiastic about this HP project, I really do appreciate them coming to us, but at the same time it's not my focus as a designer, but I showed up to play at the crit. Decent model, decent board, decent story, in essence I didn't embarrass myself or the college. I learned how to complete a project I wasn't super interested without ever being forced to pull an all nighter and I showed up with decent work. This is something I am wildly proud of. My whole education it was been extremely apparent which projects I have been honestly interested in and which ones I am just doing to pass a class and with this one I could trick some folks.

So on to the future and the chair project. I don't have any idea I am super interested in, but I want to use the computer project as a sort of barometer. I have said that its something I think I did well on and hide my disinterest, so if a chair is something I'm interested in I want to destroy it. When this HP project and my chair are compared I want it to be blatant what I truely have a passion for. I WILL LAY WASTE TO SPRING QUARTER.

Desk of the Day 12.10.08

Been a while but I've been a busy beaver.
