OUGD602 — Neubau Forst Lecture

As a group we were invited to the Neubau Forst Lecture at Huddersfield University to here Neubau discuss their most recent project and give us the opportunity to ask questions.

I used to live in Holmfirth and Huddersfield was the nearest town so I helped direct everyone to the university building's canal-side west lecture theatre.

Upon arrival it was quite bewildering how many of us there were compared to the Huddersfield uni students. There was still 96 places left held for their course students when we arrived which is almost more than two entire year-groups put together on our course.

I found the talk very interesting as they discussed such a vast project which has taken them five years to complete. I left feeling inspired and motivated to get my own work completed because of how amazing potential outcomes can always be if you are passionate and hard-working for something.

OUGD602 — Networking - Restrap

At the end of the Halleycat event, we all went to Nation of Shopkeepers for a few drinks and I was pleasantly surprised that event though I told them not to pay me, they gave me £20 and a £50 bike lock as a thank-you for doing the work. For reference, view the video below.

Nathan then went on to ask me questions about my creative practice in respect to what I do and specialise in. He said that he has made a very good business relationship with the design agency Catalogue and they do everything for him design-wise but he currently needs some simple infographics made for a new product he is going to sell and asked if I'd be interested.

It felt good to know that through doing some work which I thoroughly enjoyed with people that I got on with, landed me more work that was paid.

We organised to have a meeting about it to develop a brief at the Restrap HQ in Leeds which I am looking forward to.
