2013 Design Charrette

This morning I was a tightly wound spring, so what do I do? I go to Starbucks to get my quad-venti-caramel-non-fat-latte (that’s a 4 ounces of espresso in a 20 ounce cup, for those who aren’t familiar). Now, Starbucks has these re-useable cups, but they only come in a “grande” size (16 ounce). So instead of getting my usual venti, I grab my two re-useable cups and get two grande’s.

The caffeine helps keep me on an even keel.

Goddess Caffeina

 

I taste the sweet nectar of the Goddess Caffeina and I can feel her soothing arms around me. I begin to unwind as I finish my drive to the campus.

I get onsite and claim my spot at one of the Mac’s. I sign in, check my email, and I see my client will be there in about an hour. I have some time to put some final touches on page one and get started on page two before she gets here!

I quickly find out how fast an hour can fly by.

Regardless, my client is more than pleased with the ideas I’ve got and work I’ve done. We talk about a couple of tweaks here and there. I get her input on a couple of ideas and show her what I’m planning for the rest of page two. She’s eager to see the final product!

Everything went amazingly smooth! When I was finished with that project I was able to help another student design a logo.

My InDesign instructor referred to me as his “star student” today then handed me another project that had to be done in under 2 hours (from concept to final). I did it.

This doesn’t even touch the surface of everything that went on today. There were so many students working together; giving feedback to each other… it was just amazing!

I left campus with such a feeling of excitement and accomplishment! I know I started this day out as a nervous wreck, but I liken it to a bit of stage fright. Once I got into the wings and stepped out onstage, that was the best show, ever!
