Free Music

Creating photo albums is a lovely job, full of other peoples memories, happy times and achievements.

Deciding to add music to these slide shows and turn them into DVD movies could really pay off for me, the only snag I hit was the lack of available music around. I did come across a couple of fantastic sites that sold the downloads for a reasonable price, the links to my favourite of these are:   http://www.soundslikecafe.com/  (a wordpress site, no less) and http://www.melodyloops.com/music/ . But I really just wanted something to experiment with until I found out if it would be a popular option or not, and if I can actually put the photos to music without it all appearing a little odd.

The solution: open up garage band & make my own!

Wish me luck.

I will be posting album + music if it all turns out ok – and hopefully in not too long a time…

Tea Time

Being a lover of coffee I have found myself in a bit of hot water lately with the tea fans in our class while learning about our tea packaging project. I foolishly wondered out loud what the difference between the different types of tea was, to me there is was 3 types of tea – these being normal, floral & green. Well, during our assignment on tea packaging using de Bono’s 6 hats to help with the process (I have had to put on my white hat and research) I have discovered there is more than a thousand different types of tea from more than thirty countries!

This is getting fascinating so I’ll share just the amazing bits of my research with you: Read the rest of this entry »

Business cards & letterheads

It’s sort of sad that, in our second year we have never really explored the whole business card/ letterhead thing. Logo’s are another that we have not yet really looked at – just something we gloss over on the way to something else, we have designed a lot of them but have we really been taught to design them? Does anyone ever get ‘taught’ how to design them, or is it just something that we just develop. Is there anything worth teaching or are those type of things just an accumulation of design skills combined to create something slightly useful and good to look at.

my letterhead so far:
