Exploring Creative Practice
Mid April and my summative assessment mark sheet arrives by email, a nail-biting moment after waiting for what seems like forever! I passed!
I am demonstrating a good introductory awareness of sound practical and contextual knowledge and a growing appreciation of the subject knowledge and boundaries. I am selecting, testing and interpreting sound range of research to produce good ideas and outcomes. My practical, technical and communication skills are reasonable and show effective outcomes. Unit three was a really good chance to delve into areas I might be more interested in and more inclined to lean towards practicing in when I’m qualified whilst building on my knowledge and skills using technical drawing software and digital presentation software.
It was noted that throughout my work there is a level of consistency and discipline that is evident and clearly benefitting my growth and development as a designer. They were pleased to see an expanding set of techniques being used to conduct research and communicate findings and I must continue to build on these as I move forward. My application of the design, technical and communication skills are being shown and there is definitely evident progress being made, to improve in these areas I must practice and develop these skills.
Overall, I am so pleased with the work I produced throughout unit three and I’m confident that with more practice of the technical and design software, the more confident I will become in communicating my ideas. Unit three gave me the opportunity to build on my research methods and communicate those ideas which was a great learning experience.
Going forward I have made a list to help organise my thoughts and actions
- continue to back up my work with images or diagrams
- be more experimental with how I communicate my ideas
- spend time practicing my presentation skills
- spend time practicing my technical drawing skills
I will continue to look at ways of improving my work and ideas in all of these areas to build on my confidence which in turn will help me communicate my ideas as I move forward to level two.
