Results- reflective journal entry 2

Today we were given our results for our first print project, I was disappointed with mine but also surprised, my first project was very hard to grasp, I felt like I didn't fully understand the brief, although my feedback suggested I did.
I got a C which is an average grade but its one of my lowest of my uni life and I hope it gives me the kick up the but I have needed to thoroughly get into my work.

On a lighter note, I feel my turner bianca project is going better, I feel more eagar to do work now I have some decent ideas, I feel, although alot of peoples work appears to be similar, I hope this doesn't impair our results.

I feel like now, I have had one set of results out the way, I know what I need to do as a whole, I am getting myself more organised, and hope to improve and get out of my printers rut that seemed to occur in my first project.

new brief.

Yesterday we were given a new brief for the bedding company, turner bianca, we were taken round the show rooms for the autumn/winter 2010 collection and for t. j hughes next collections of bedding.
These are some of the images I took while in the showrooms :

textile horizions- reflective journal entry one.

After just completing our first project of the year, I feel I can now reflective more clearly on the year ahead. As I was optimistic about taking print for a specialism I was keen to see how my project would plan out in 2nd year.
I felt my projects had a few big ups and downs and as constantly changing, which at times I felt that hard to document.
We had influences from the trend company Scarlet Opus who was giving the brief and guiding us along the way I felt the brief was fairly open and it to me a while to grasp what was been asked for this is something I am going to work on as now getting a brief I now know to read it through thoroughly before getting in a flap about what is asked of me.
Within my market research because I was doing my own trend I found this was slightly difficult as my market kept changing as my ideas did.
On my presentation I felt nervous and didn't get all the points across i would of liked to however the experience wasn't as bad as I expected it to be and I hope this will mean I will improve as presentations become a regular routine within our briefs.

I have decided to write a blog as I felt it would be easier to reflect on all my projects in a blog rather than doing an individual journel for every project and then a separate on for everything as a whole.
