Living just 20 minutes by car, 40 minutes by bus away from Wolverhampton getting to University is easy. I recently transferred courses onto Graphic Communication from Events & Venue Management as I found during the first 2 weeks of that course that it just wasn't for me and I wasn't enjoying my time there, so I decided to change this immediately. Now, successfully being accepted after having an interview and going through the transfer process I am now beginning to understand and complete the work set by each modules.
The Type Fundamental project, Where we are? I find is an interesting task as you get to gain a deeper concept into typefaces. Instead of just selecting a font you are learn different categories that typefaces come in to and also the measurements that type is measured in (points). So far, I have learnt that I need to work smaller in order to put more detail onto my drafts and also to sharpen my pencil to allow me to do this. Coming into the group 3 weeks late I feel that I have managed to grasp the work pretty quickly and start to develop ideas by attending group work sessions and seeing how other members in the group started to develop theirs.
