One Week Of Classes Down, 14 More To Go!
This weekend, a lot of the girls that I live with decided to travel to varying places around Italy, but Bridget and I decided that we should stay home and get a jump start on all our projects and research (and to go SHOPPING!). After just one week, I already have 7 different projects underway... and lots of our projects are based on the incredible art and architecture here in Rome, so this means that I am traveling all over the city to gather information, pictures, sketches, etc. A few of the projects include: A total identity creation of the Tiber Island, which will include a logo, stationary, website, information packets, wayfinding, etc; A series of four 3-D posters that work together and individually and are based on a path of 1000 paces that I took throughout the city; The creation of sustainable packaging and labeling for a pre-existing spice company; And a handmade rustic 'altered' book based on my photography, comparing and contrasting the modern and ancient art here in Rome. I'm very excited because these projects are unique to the Rome program and will always have special meaning. Let's just hope that I can get them all done in time and that they turn out decent!
