For our visual aesthetic, we had decided on the theme of hands and circles but felt that our colour scheme was a little all over the place.
In our group, I think it was safe to say that costing was a key driving force for our designing. Having a budget of £750 we wanted to keep to as close to that as possible in case we had any issues with fundraising.
At this point I feel like there are a million different elements that we have to think about for our pitch in a few weeks, but we’ve been managing to break down everything little by little so it’s less terrifying…

Last year I was in the Impression studio and between us we managed to design and print the whole of the Summer Show catalogue. So our group has used some of that knowledge to guide our proposal.
Personally I’ve been finding the fundraising element of the Summer Show proposal the hardest element to think about. So rather than give any one person the task of coming up with how we were going to do that we brainstormed ideas as a group.
There has been an obvious trend to use coloured tapes as a method of wayfinding for this project due to the number of colours that are available and the low cost.

This week we were with Accelerator rather than Regular Practice going through the business side of our Summer Show proposals.
