Well i have decided to use the image featuring the text 'Lust rules your head,not your heart' i am making a small booklet like tag which will contain a smaller version of the image printed onto tracing paper in black, underneath will be a piece of red card then a piece of white paper featuring a poem i wrote which i feel describes the image,
The short poem reads..... Aching, longing, anxiety, desire. My pulse rate is climbing higher & higher, my hearts beating fast, my cheeks are flushed red, are the feelings of lust ruling my head.

tea with the mayor

On the 4th march we were invited over to manchester town hall to meet the mayor of manchester Alison Firth, She made us feel very welcome offering us tea and biscuits from there very lovely china cups. We were shown around the offices, we sat on the same settee as the queen, signed the visitors book and sat at her desk in the chair which was as old as the building,
After our tour we had plenty of photographs taken while receiving our framed letter of thanks from the head of police, It was a lovely morning and it has been a wonderful experience working on the campaign on a whole.

more chekhov

I am really enjoying experimenting with visuals on this project here are some i created last week i think i am getting close to my final designs, I have also been experimenting with the use of tracing paper how this could be incorporated in to my designs i do have some mock pieces which i will take photos off and put up during this week


Ive been working on my design for the noise exhibition here are a few examples. I want to incorporate the pulse readings from panic/anxiety attacks with a profile silhouette i like were this is going but i think i need to do a few more experiments before deciding on which image to go with.Im a bit unsure as to wether they need an outline or not!

As well as working on the Chekhov project i have also been working on two others, one of which is the I.S.T.D brief 100, You are required to interpret the number 100, the content can be educational, explanations of events, historical or social discoveries or developments, sporting records or achievements, they want an innovative idea which not only intrigues but also informs.
As i want to have a career in teaching i wanted to choose a subject which would reflect this, After initial research i came across world-english.org a one stop resource for the english language. As i have recently been looking into how i can improve my vocabulary the list i found on here was what i was looking for, 100 words to impress an examiner in examinations, My idea is to create a set of cards like flash cards you use with children but these will be aimed at higher education students, or maybe just people who would like to improve there vocabulary like myself.
They can be pinned on to notice boards or carried around with you in the package i am working on at the moment. i would also like to come up with new ideas as to how else the cards/words could be accessed , I am thinking that there could be a App for phones where you have access to the cards to view on screen, in the pack you buy there could also contain a cd to store the words on your computer, and maybe even set up a facebook group to encourage people/ students to interact and help each other with improving there vocabulary wether to help with a crossword or to use in everyday language/conversations.
I have finished typing up all 100 cards i have put an example below, I am now working on the name, logo and packaging for this product.
