Mon 3rd June – I intend to hand in my Professional Practice and Presentation module today. Before hand I will need to double check that I have covered all aspects of the module.

Weds 1st May. Today is the hand in date for GDPM4. I have all my designs finished and uploaded onto my blog. I need to make sure that all 6 of my sketchbooks are labelled correctly ready to be handed in by 5pm, although I should be able to do this earlier. At 1pm there is going to be a meeting about the professional practice module which I need to be present for.
Fri 3rd May. As the major project has been handed in the main focus now changes to the professional practice module. There will be a branding meeting about the logo so I need to make sure I am around for that and bring my logo ideas. Over the next few weeks I will need to think about how my work will be presented at the exhibition and also about my own personal promotional materials.
24th-26th Apr. As hand in is next week I need to make sure that my book is completely finished. This will involve looking for spelling errors within the body text and any other small changes that need to be made. I also need to decide on a final book cover designs. As well as this I will continue to make posters based on both the book and the topic of mental health and challenging stigma.
17th-19th Apr. My book is almost complete. I began working on a front cover over the Easter holiday but I need to finalise this soon. I am also going to continue working on some poster ideas. I also designed a logo over the Easter period which I may be able to use to link the book and posters together.
27th-29th Mar. I am going to attempt to have all my pages set up and almost, if not complete by the end of the week. I still need to design the front cover for the book and I must remember to edit pages I have already completed as due to adding in two spreads the pages numbers have changed. There is also one illustration that I need to change slightly. I am going to continue developing my poster ideas also. On the Wednesday there will be a branding group meeting where I will need to have with me my ideas for the logo of the exhibition. Friday, college will be closed as it is Good Friday, then the next two weeks are the Easter break, so ideally I need to make sure I have done as much as I can this week that I need to be in college for. I plan to work from home over the next couple of weeks, which should be possible as I have most of what I need at home.

She also gave me an idea to explore related to helping others with mental health problems. This week I intend to continue to develop possible outcome ideas thinking about content, design and illustration/typography style. On Wednesday there will be an interim crit so I must be ready to explain my ideas so far.
6th – 9th Feb. In order to try to reduce my anxiety over the project and be able to focus better without panicking I am going to begin thumb nailing and brain storming all my ideas. I currently have loads of ideas and am unsure which direction to go. Once I’ve got it down on paper I hopefully will be able to work out how to go on, whether I choose a specific direction or whether I choose a few ideas and experiment with them until I decide which idea is best.
30th Jan – 1st Feb. This week I am going to continue with typography and illustration experiments. I will also experiment with the photographs that I took over the weekend. I also want to be thinking about what direction this project will take and how I may go about this.

This will include mentioning the general theme of the brief, a summary of the progress I have made so far and why I have been doing what I have done, and what I plan to do next. Currently I am between different outcome ideas which is OK but I need to continue to experiment with ideas in regard to illustration and typography.

I needed to have completed 1500 words by Friday. I have done 2700 so far and will continue to write more even though I have already achieved what needed to be done this week. I want to get ahead with the thesis so that I am not rushing to finish at the end (although this has never happened before) and so I will have time to edit what I have written.

So far the questionnaire that anyone could answer has 47 replies but the one targetted at those with mental health issues only has 25 replies so far. I have given some copies to Student Services and outside of college at EIP so hopefully by next week I will have a few more answers.
