We printed 100 (English) versions of the KYR packet! After revision upon revision, the centered version was the one that Brandon and Susan both agreed upon, the others they denoted felt less like a cover page (which Tom had mentioned also). I believe PinPoint is currently working on translating the English copy, and Brandon and Susan are hopeful to have at least the Spanish translation finished and complete for the Sanctuary Cities panel discussion on Tuesday (which Brandon looped me into volunteering for). At least the 100 English KYR pamphlets will be there, first opportunity for user testing!
RIP to the small logo I carved out. I think it will still come in handy as I further develop the brand identity in the following weeks. I want to have some final deliverables to give to Brandon and Susan in case they want to use it for future events and workshops pertaining to the Know Your Rights campaign.
Ruth and I also met on Wednesday (after having a mini-DP section outing on the West side), and discussed the final output of our postcard project. I think we came up with a rather interesting end-form. We are going to map the postcards out and draw connections with string between different topics and ideas. We are meeting on Sunday to make progress on it, but in the meantime we are gathering materials and reprinting the postcards. We figured we will have the visual mapping and also the actual postcards for people to handle and interact with. Here’s an image of me plotting the postcards, the documentation came in handy! However, the whites are not pure whites. I need to improve upon my lightroom editing skills…
I had dinner with Hazel last night and we talked about school and future plans. I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed by the amount of work that has to come to fruition in the coming weeks, and the uncertainty with post-graduation plans. My body is being worn thin and I was sick yesterday. After I presented my work in Type in Motion, I went home and slept.
I am concerned that I don’t have enough output for DP, even though I know I have been putting out work every week. I suppose it’s just a matter of presenting it well. I think I will be doing a pecha kucha style presentation the day of the crit, putting parameters on my work will help me be efficient and help streamline the process. I am working on the 1 minute video, and have rewritten my abstract from last week (Tom mentioned it was too long, which I have a tendency for doing).
The ISP presentation is two weeks from now also, everything is culminating at once! It will be helpful not having work study and type in motion, however.
I still need to bug Do Yun for those documentation photos, and follow up with Anina about meeting next week. Things are happening fast!
Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with you body.
—1 Corinthians 6:19-20
^ a very pertinent and timely verse I received this morning. My sin and idolatry have led me to disrespect my body and not take care of myself, consequently a disservice to God and a selfish sin. I apologize. And I need to be better about taking care of myself, Jesus bore it all on the cross and I owe it to Him. Speaking with Cathy this morning was really a time of healing and mutual (I at least hope) stress-relief.
