Week 6 10/03/2015
Today we had Laura Lander and Lisa Price come to talk to us about creative CV’s. From the presentation, I gained valuable knowledge on how to set out my CV, as some of the things we went through I either had not included or did not need to include on my current CV.
Going through the CV templates, we looked at what was good and what was not so good, such as the consistency of the CV and appearance.
For a creative CV, we were shown a few examples, which all looked targeted towards a single type of job, such as typography, and all had their own individual look and appeal to them.
We also looked at what we needed to include in CV’s and how we presented them.

Today for our lecture we had the tech staff in to help us in setting up our space for the degree show. We went through what could and could not be moved in terms of equipment as well as what we needed individually for the show, although most people only needed a computer and backboard to display our work.
After this we allocated jobs that would need to be done in order for the degree show to work. After writing the list people volunteered to do specific jobs and also gave jobs to the people that was not here.
Given the job in partnership with Lucia, we drew out a room plan of where people would like to be stationed during the show and also where the refreshments would be for the people arriving to the show.
