Week 42_ How eating vegetables and fruits can make us look more attractive

This week i had this idea to find out what are the benefits that each type of food has on us.
i found very interesting articles about how by eating carrots and tomatoes can make as look more attractive rather just being tan.
What i was reading on this article was very impressive.

Week 41_Tutorial with Andy to discuss my outcome

Today’s tutorial was to discuss with Andy what my final outcome will be.
i forgot to mention that the previous time that we had tutorial we brainstorm and came out with ten of ideas of what my outcome can be.
Then after the tutorial i went home and i thought some more ideas of what i can do.
However, even thought i wanted to do a campaign were students of my university could take part in competitions  or videos that i wanted to create i realized that this was not efficient.
The reason was that the academic season for BA students had finish and the MA students were busy by doing their projects so they were no students available that could take part in my campaign. I decided to keep going with a mobile application.
I told Andy my idea but even though he thought as well that the campaign idea was better i explained to him the reasons for not be able to do that.

Week 41_Workshop 3 for FMP

Today we had a workshop with our tutor Jackie and Dr Jane Birkin.
Its the second time that Dr Jane Birkin came to discuss with us her work and show to us her sketchbooks and that is a kind move.
She gave to us  advises on how to present our outcomes in the exhibition  and she share her experience of being a Communication Designer student as well. More over she kindly offer to help us to find a title for our project.
We separated into two groups. Half of the students was about to discuss their title with Jane Birkin and others with our tutor Jackie.
I was in Jackie’s group.
I can say that it was a helpful workshop session.

Week 41_English session

Today i had my meeting with the English tutor. the aim was to finalize  my research question but we discuss as well about what i was thinking my outcome will be. I share with her my ideas and because as i could understand she is into healthy diet as well she kindly told me about some of healthy eating campaigns that she heard about. She agreed with me that the food that our canteen is serving is unhealthy and that the “healthy food” is limited and expensive. She encourage me to continue with my ideas as she found them interesting and she gave me some more tips.

The Final FMP research question is ” How can communication design can educate students about healthy diet and motivate them to produce their own meals”

Week 40_Survey (Results)

Even thought i have posted the survey on a number of pages in facebook that are related with the students that are studying in Winchester School of Art and even thought i have asked multiple times for people to spend just 5 minutes from their time to answer my survey; unfortunately they were not many people willing to do it.
I collected answers from just  23 people, it was a bit disappointing that people didnt have the time to answer but at least i got some useful insight from what i have collected.

I realize that even thought students may no why is good to follow a healthy diet is difficult when it comes to choose  food in the cafeteria because there are very limited choices of food and most of the food in unhealthy. The healthy choices does not worth the money as you buy smaller portion for the same price as you going to buy something that is not so healthy but the portion is bigger.

Week 40_Workshop 2 for FMP

This week’s session was about how to write good reflective report. Most of us didn’t know exactly what we should include on a reflective report so our tutor Andy thought that this session might be a good idea as we have to create a reflective film for our FMP.

The Important things that Andy suggested to us to have in mind when we are going to write our report is to :

  1. Describe (what i have done, where i did it, when)
  2. Interpret  (taking apart and understand it eg: why i fell asleep? – Because i havent eaten breakfast)
  3. Evaluate (to understand what your actions are and the results of your action)
  4. Plan (what i would do different next time)
