3rd Quarter Rap UP!

3rd quarter is OVERRRR!!!!

Oh my damn! This one was a toughie y'all. When I counted up everything, I had 39 deliverables! GEEZ! My critique went great. I was kind of nervous because I thought I would go over the 20 minutes we are given to deliver our projects to the panel. I did go over, but not by much, so it was okay.

Overall, the panel loved my Darfur poster! If you can recall, this was the poster that got torn apart during the second week of classes when our teacher called in upper quarter students, teachers, and a regular guy (non-designer) to judge our work. I wrote about it. After going through so many concepts for that poster, it feels good to know that something I thought up turned out so well.

My Darfur Poster:

The panel also loved my blog. For those of you who don't know, I only started this blog for my blogging class. We were supposed to try to talk about something interesting (I picked me), have a couple of features (Friday Rap Up and the occasional Thursday 13), and generate traffic (hey y'all!). I've had so much fun writing this blog (I was not looking forward to it initially) and I'm glad that other people enjoy it as well. Now I have a great blog that I look forward to taking as far as it can go.

This was the hardest quarter I've had to date, but in the end it feels wonderful to know that I did it, and did it well. YAY!

This rap up is a little different. I showed this in my critique; it summed up my 3rd quarter for the panel. It might not be that entertaining for those of you who have never attended PC, but hey, you win some and you lose some. At least my hair is semi-cute. Here it is, enjoy.

Do we get to see the Darfur poster?! I see one out on PC's site, but I'm sure that's not yours because it appears to be from 2005. And why did "Julie Gett" (spelling?) get special mention in your Rap Up while no other instructors (from what I could discern) did? Just curious.

Nupe - That would've been nice huh, to put a picture of my Darfur poster on there? Sorry, my brain is still somewhat fried from the quarter. I'll work on that.

And my teacher's name, Juliet, rhymes with regret...that's about the only reason I put it in. heehee. Plus she was on my panel.

BUT, I also said Kuperminc, my design teacher...and she wasn't on my panel.

It's cool. Just bring the poster on the honeymoon. We'll go there.

Tracie said...

I don't think we'd wanna go to Darfur. Have you seen Hotel Rwanda? Yeah, that's pretty much the scene over there.

I was thinking more like...Australia.

anonymousnupe said...

Yeah, the Outback, with 3 of the 5 most poisonous snakes in the world. Perfect! G'day!

Tracie said...

I think we're having our first argument. I'm calling the whole thing off. I need more compromise and communication from you!!! Sniff.

anonymousnupe said...

Boo, I just don't want an Inland Taipan to latch on to those gorgeously ample lips of yours. How would you perform your Friday Rap Ups wit yo mouf all swole up?!

Tracie said...

point taken. wedding back on.
