Printsource New York

A few photos from our college stand at Printsource New York.
All of the students work gained excellent feedback and some really successful networking has been done!
I myself have a couple of exciting leads to follow up on for once I have graduated which will be fantastic if all goes to plan. I will definitely keep you all updated on any developments.
Working on the stand was such a great opportunity; I loved hearing the positive feedback on our work, seeing what professionals were looking for and talking to different people. It has definitely given me more confidence as both a person and a designer, making me feel that little bit more prepared for life after CCAD.

See below photos of the stand with links to peoples blogs

Visit to New York: Empire State Building

Stunning views from the Empire State Building at night, well worth the hour long queue we waited in and the freezing cold weather we endured!
Some of the photos I took on my camera came out very blurry but these gave me an idea for some designs to play around with over the summer - always being inspired! But my trusty HTC camera phone saved the day with some beautiful photos like the ones below.
Enjoy!






Visit to New York: Ground Zero & Battery Park

When I went to New York 5 years ago the land at Ground Zero was completely flat. Work had begun on the Freedom Tower but there was not much to see so I really wanted to go back this time around to see the developments.
As soon as we came out from the subway the size of the new buildings hits you straight away. I could not believe the change since I was last there but the feelings of sadness for those who lost their lives was definitely still there. I think that the 9/11 memorial is a great idea and a lovely place for people to visit and pay their respects.

Visit to New York: Central Park

Central Park was by far my favourite place in New York; the scenery was beautiful, it was lovely to relax in the quiet and get out of the hustle & bustle in the city.
The flowers and foliage looked gorgeous in the bright sunshine so I wanted to share a few of the photos I took, hope you like them!
