Question: What did you do your Senior year of design school? Creative project? Portfolio refinement? Like it? Hate it?
Our senior year we get to do a thesis, but we don't get enough time to work with it (but we are working on changing that)
We did a creative project that will be in the gallery at end of semester. I liked it but would have preferred portfolio refinement.
We're doing both. The only thing I hate is that we're not spending enough time on portfolio refinement.
I wished I had portfolio refinement my first semester of my senior year so to prepare me to job hunt earlier, but I had it my 2nd
we produced/designed a magazine and had to pick our roles PLUS portfolio refinement re: senior project
Research project. Wrote paper, turned it into a book and accompanying poster. We picked the topic. Challenging and interesting.
Senior year I stopped designing things to please my profs and started doing creative work that was more personal. My best work ever.
Creative project. Had to develop our own gallery show. I designed and printed 20 silkscreen posters. Loved it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gravitybomb/3369085862/in/set-72157615647282452 It also nearly killed me.
Both. Refining projects got less attention, though, since it competed with thesis/senior project.
all of the above. Couple design team classes/projects, portfolio, personal identity and website development, sr. creative projects.
Portfolio refinement/regular courses. Mostly prep for senior review. It was good, but I could have pushed myself more.
I will be refining my portfolio and website starting this weekend! Finding it tough because I am so picky and critical of myself.
I did portfolio refinement. I only had 2 classes. I would have preferred a huge creative project!
Portfolio refinement and a couple special projects. I can't stress enough how cool the Da Vinci Center is for designers.
I missed your earlier questions, but I'm a senior now so... we are preparing a portfolio book containing our previous work but our portfolio itself is based on a concept. we are also building a whole system of stationery, library sheets, contact sheets, postcards, and a website. basically we are branding ourselves. some of us are doing refinements on old work before shooting it/including it in the portfolio. but the real project is the conceptual portfolio and supporting system. we did not do a personal logo, per se. it's more like an overall aesthetic that is representative of the concept. all of the work - from concept, to writing content, to photographing the projects, to deciding what goes in/out - is done by us.
