So I got my dissertation binded, sewn and glued into the cover. It's looking really really good. Without me trying to blow my own trumpet. However I came to a slight change of plan when coming to my final touch of my presentation. I had planned to put white tissue paper, but the pack of tissue paper I had bought. Not going to lie, cheapy crap from ASDA. So the only two white pieces of tissue paper within the pack, are dyed with whatever other colours it was touching. This made me think about using white in general, white is going to get dirty a lot easier than other colours. So I went through my pack of tissue papers and tested them:
Again, I want this to look classy, but on the other hand it looking like a gift for someone works also, as I talked a lot within my dissertation about giving gifts to people. So I have decided to go with the light blue, as it keeps the look I am going for a lot more classy. The others are very much slapping you in the face with colour. I wish there had of been a light green in the pack to symbolize money. Or even gotten fake money to place out the top. When it comes down to it however. It is should of, could of, would of. I am just so happy that this is all over.
On that note, I also started to research into what sort of "Student Survival Guide"'s are out there. I can't help but feel they are so corny and, I know myself. I have never even thought of reading a how to survive university guide. Mainly due to I never personally thought the advise would be any better than what my friends and family would give me. Here's a few I looked into:
So I have started to think about infographics again... my slight warn enemy. Here is a few I have been looking at:
These are still very much on the cheesy front. But I think they work. I know myself with again thinking of these books, I wouldn't want to read one. But if it was an info-graphic, I would read it. I have to admit it is a lot of work and a lot of design to cram into one space. I am still unsure of following through with the book idea. However I do feel I need to do a bit more research before I give my final say on it. That's all from me, tomorrow will hopefully be my very last post on the subject of my dissertation. WHOOP!
