Some of you that read this may or may not know I have been a student at Central Saint Martins studying on the BA Graphic Design course for the last 3 years. Yesterday I handed in my portfolio for the last time ever, a entire year’s worth of work in 2 A3 boxes. For the last couple of weeks I have done nothing but work on completing projects, getting things printed, screen printing, made process books for each project and finally arranging my portfolio. It probably goes down as the most stressful times I have ever experienced, as many students completing university hit a submit button online a graphic design course or any design based course has way more things to be taken into consideration. However I finished in time, handed in my portfolio at 10:19am and now all we do it wait.
Life at Central Saint Martins definitely has it’s ups and downs. The last 3 years have been enjoyable and I will miss it when I leave but I haven’t quite decided yet if I think it lives up to it’s expectations of being one of the best art schools in the world (I’ll let you know when I’ve decided) The organisation isn’t great and if it wasn’t for one particular tutor in the last year I probably would have struggled my way through the year so I am extremely grateful for her. I think my work has improved dramatically throughout the last year and without even realising I have learnt so much. The art school as a hole is a great place, there is never a dull moment and the crazy/weird sights you see are definitely not one’s you see everyday. Those are some of the things I shall definitely miss once finished.
Below this you can see photos of my portfolio that I handed in.
