Talks to get you through your quarter life crisis

Oh I have had one of these! I’m probably still in it. I highly recommend these Ted talks to absolutely all twenty-somethings. The third video was especially impactful. It’s a bit confronting but it think it essentially advocates exploring (not procrastinating) and thinking about your future in a wise way (not putting off thinking about it). This has semi terrified me into action; into persisting with looking for internships and work/career options.

Expanding skills

Going back to when I was Office Manager at the ACT Writers Centre, one of the projects I got to be involved in was coming up with initial design concepts for the logo for HARDCOPY; a manuscript development program. I helped with preparing the preliminary design explorations. New Best Friend took over from there and produced the final, professional product.

I was interested in creating a logo with only back, white and orange or a combination of  two. I wanted it to be like  a button so focused on round forms with an emphasis on simplicity and text.

It’s been a while since I helped out with the project but I’m proud of my involvement and the final result. New Best Friend took my initial ideas and along with the staff at the Writers Centre, tweaked them along the way to create something modern, cool but professional. This task is something I am delighted to add to my resume of achievements and certainly the genre of venture I would take on again.
