Those of you who have followed me on www.bonmardi.com will know that I have asked you to move over here to my website to find out what happened after I graduated... what Katie did after school, if you will. Feel free to continue to visit my student blog - I will be leaving it up indefinitely if only to act as a reference for my future projects as well as provide some context for the approaches I take in my design work.
This is my next foray into blogging. Where I will document the processes and inspiration for both my professional and private work. I hope to continue to benefit from the practice of blogging as well as explain some of my choices.
I also intend to return to some of my previous work - to deconstruct and possibly remake - acknowledging one of my most heartfelt credo's: I am never finished. On that note, I will finish this post by reaffirming my design manifesto, as written in October 2014:
design manifesto for the luckiest woman alive
I look at things from more than one perspective;
I do no harm;
I craft with love;
I question stereotypes;
I am organised;
I am never finished;
I stimulate more than one sense with my work;
I do not waste my resources;
I value the practice of remediation;
I am engaged in a two-way learning process;
I design my world & my world informs my design:
It's all two-way
