I visited city binder and booked a slot with them, so I have to finish everything including printing and give them my portfolio for binding on monday morning. It means I have aprrox 72 hours left. And one thing that I’m concerning is what if I have missing pages/ yet to finish up drawings in the portfolio. Since we need at least 1 a2/a1 print, I’m thinking about to wrap the book with print and hold it with a elastic band. And with extra drawings, I may print them in a2/a1 and carry them with a tube or making addition leaflet. I guess the extra drawings would be the 1:100 factory model photos. I am not sure how do I hand in with my portfolio, models and if I going to have a tube. I know Cris and Jaycee are having boxes to put everything as a whole submission. But mine, specially models are way too big to keep them all in a box. When I do my submission, I just put my models on table with a my portfolio and tube placed on top of them?
I am thinking how to submit my lightbox a well since its very fragile. Should I get a box to put into to hand in as there’s a opening shelf at the back to keep all the plugs and wires. And when I submit it, it needs to have my name, student numbers, studio number, my projects’s name, reference page to my portfolio(?). Can I put a remark it as fragile and please take good care of it?
on the way details: graphic yet to finish building details for tech
update of section cut
it is half way done however I feel it doesn’t getting the lightbox character and I am not sure what’s missing in it.
I tried to print on a thicker paper, the last paper was 100gsm, and I tried print on 160gsm. I’m more satisfied with this result, still can see a bit of dark from behind but it looks a lot better.
I need one more advice for the folded plans/3D as well. I brought it up and discussed with Jaycee before, since the plans are very long, I’m thinking to fold both 2 sides (left and right) from portfolio. should I use 100gsm for folding pages? or should it be the same paper with the portfolio? Also Im planning the portfolio is 297 square and the folding papers are a4 size so after they are completely folded, audience still able to see a part of plan/3d from the gap. should it be a4 size with a gap or 297 square that totally hiding the plan/3d from fold?
ps. thanks for the teaching through the year, my final year is full of unexpected and I gain a lot from it. In chinese we have a slang for teachers, “a good teacher is a tree that grows lots of fruit”. In this very last week, all of us are doing our best on the design that we’ve been working for months, the work means more than the best of we can do but also the hard work and everyhing you spent on us. And I would say the fruit you plant for long would be sweet. thank you 😀
