Following through our discussion on Tuesday I have formed the bones of the indesign document. I also went to see a few printers yesterday to talk through what I wanted to do, but that was a dead end. I’ve made a few on-line enquiries and also placed an order for materials, but this is not something that will be a problem.
I’ve been making alterations to some of the sheets we discussed and this is still in progress, I’ve made a start on the exploded axonometric.
I’m not so sure the street names on the plan show up so well, but they are cross referenced on the sectional view.
View no 2 should perhaps be set further back between the buildings which is where the viewpoint towards the testing station is, but then again this may be one of the rendered views.
I spoke with Toby today and he likes the concept of the manual, he also likes the links with the first semester work and would like the Explosion of the Senses ‘Box’ and also the Coade Stone Model submitted physically with the book, he also suggested that one of my images within the book should open out to A2, and that the last six views should ideally be artefacts too.
I will work through the manual for Tuesday and get as much done as I can. In terms of the six views, would it be best to have six in draft form, or 1/2 well formed. I was thinking for Tuesday to have as much as possible to take me through the portfolio to tell the story with no gaps and that the refining would come after?
