I was spending a lot of time over my uni break coming up with new content for this blog, but now that I'm back, I find I have less time to plan/write/photograph blog posts, which was really irritating me.Then it hit me! Ilsa, this blog was meant to be a way of documenting your creative projects, not an added stress on top of your workload! DUH!
So for the next few months while I'm back at Design School expect to see weekly posts about the progress of my work and examples of different design outcomes and ideas.
First up for my Studio class, This semester the class I chose is called #encounter @geelong and looks at the Geelong Gallery and (you guessed it) their Instagram account. Moreover, we will start to look at and develop ways/ideas of engaging an audience and their journey from Melbourne to Geelong Gallery via the V-Line train system.
For the first project brief, we had to start analysing the Instagram feeds of Geelong Gallery and another art institution (I chose the Victoria & Albert Museum). We then had to take the data collected and turn it into an informative diagram. Remember this is a design degree so a diagram has to be more than just a mind map or pie graph.
Below are the diagrams I produced. They aren't perfect, and I have some updates I'd like to do, but this is all about sharing the whole design process, so here you go.
This is the start of a new series of design posts I'll be doing, in order to document my design growth and evolution.
Design is just another facet of my creative addiction. Hope you enjoy.

PROJECT: The Idea(l) - Micro Apartment Design
How much space to do currently have? How much of that do you actually use? Could you have less space? My answers... More than I need. Less Then I have. Yes, very easily.
The old 'Australian dream' of owning a large house in the suburbs is fast fading, due to financial reasons, due to a shift mentality, due to a strong desire to live in the inner city areas. There are many reasons one might ‘blame’ this change on.
The next step? How do we create the most out of the smaller, possibly more unconventional, inner city spaces? These are the areas we no longer have room for the McMansions of the suburbs, so now we have to get creative.
As an Interior Designer I examined different ideas of micro living from around the globe. From the slightly insane, to the pure design genius.
This post contains images, from design sketches, to final renders that show one outcome for a very unconventional site, beneath a heritage listed bridge. Each apartment is made up of highly functional modules to make the most of a small space.
The Home Office
The Pivot Flexi
Which apartment style would you pick?
