TODAY I HANDED IN THE FINAL DELIVERABLES required to complete my studio requirements for my BDES. It’s strange to think my 7 years of school have worked up to this point. However, there is little room to celebrate as everyone prepares for the undergraduate degree exhibition (May 5-19th). Unlike the rest of the show, the design majors at Emily Car University curates within its department and it’s always this mad scramble to make custom displays, format documents, print takeaways, etc. Despite my efforts to keep my 8×8′ space simple, I decided to make custom shelves to house my pieces. I’m kicking myself for the extra work, but I know it’ll look beautiful and clean. Thankfully, my dad is helping me build some smaller components which gives me more time to develop my supplementary pieces. It’s coming together.
