The End of Year Show brief has been different because it has been an individual brief and I have been working with one other person on the production of ideas and options for the outcomes. Working alone has shown me that it gets work done quicker because decisions are made faster, but not necessarily better or stronger. Having someone else who knows the brief and is open to experimentation within it really helps to drive ideas, but keeps the work ticking over and fast paced.
I know that I do not want to be a freelance designer as I prefer company and people to bounce ideas off. I really enjoy working within the studio and having people around, and I would like to find this in the jobs I get post-graduation. I am going to look for opportunities in mid-sized studios with people that are good at and enjoy working together.
