The start to winter quarter means new classes & new project briefs. Hooray! The quarter system has ingrained a “let’s work as fast as possible” mentality. A push to the 11 week finish line.
The line up for classes this quarter includes Editorial Design, Packaging Design, Independent Study, Advanced Interactive Design, Art History since 1950 and Building a Web Business. Should be more than enough to keep me busy and interested.
This morning we were given our first brief for Packaging Design. Due next Wednesday which is by far our fastest turn around time on a project like this (aside from Information Design two years ago). I’m excited to get to work with people from other majors – packaging science majors and industrial design students. It should be a good mix of backgrounds.
For this project I’m immersing myself in the world of packaging and looking for all of the inspiration I can get.
