The opening night of the capstone show was absolutely exhausting. My feet hurt, my throat was sore, and my ears were ringing— but all for the best reasons. I spent the night talking nonstop, to friends and strangers alike. Everyone visiting seemed excited to be there, surrounded by the fruits of our semester-long labor. I was delighted to find that the visitors weren’t just people’s direct family and friends— there were professionals from the design community, too, eager to see our fresh ideas and design sensibilities.
As I stood there, in front of my work, I felt proud. I also felt proud of the whole class. We each chose subjects that we felt connected to, and it showed. I’m also so very happy to be finished.
Yet, there’s a part of me that knows I’m not done yet. My blog has so much potential to expand, and might be completely redesigned if I really pursue it. I also saw small typographic mistakes in my print work, and I knew that if I want to send it off to be used freely by a nonprofit, I would have to fix them.
