I have decided to make my business cards by hand. Above are a few examples of cards that have been embroided, painted, stamped and dyed to make unique and one off designs. I am going to play around with embroidery and watercolours separately to determine which work best. My main concept is to have a stain of watercolour to one side and use alphabet stamps and ink to add my text details. I think a handmade business card will reflect my style in a fitting way.

I wanted to simplify my business card as I had started to dislike my previous design and as we are going to print them for the exhibition I fought it was best if I redesigned it sooner rather than later. I am torn between getting the first design printed professionally, or creating them by hand like this example and this one. The second image I have posted is my attempt at creating the basic design for the cards by hand. I would create the final designs by printing the text and information on thick watercolour paper, and then painting on the design(s).

Following this tutorial, I created this little colouring in action in Flash. I am now in the process of creating one that works with more of a drawing motion rather than ‘click-filling’ (also using my own illustration and not a weird looking person!)

Today I have been taking photographs of my work for my self directed project in preparation for the book I am going to produce. The book, called ‘A Stitch In Time’ will feature all of my embroidery on photographs, selected research and other development.

Today I created a load of digital in-camera double exposures. Here are some of the best ones. I am really pleased with how my project is going so far and I’m looking forward to getting in the dark room and printing my most recent film next Thursday because there are some promising images showing on my contact sheet.

Two double exposures that I created yesterday. Both were created using post production techniques, the first being analogue and the second digital. I had a very production day yesterday developing, shooting and editing for my negotiated work.

I’ve been drafting ideas for my app icon. I want the style to match that of the hand drawn nature of my app, and to feature similar colours to those that will be available in the colour palette.
