About to collapse into a pancake coma..... So last night, I left off saying I was going to go back and do a few quick sketching and research for my re-branding. I ended up actually looking at a few different species of octopuses:
Although I did start looking at species of octopuses, I started getting so captured on how they looked. So I had good intentions, but then I just started looking at how pretty they were. I however now know, I want my Kraken logo to look at though it's under water rather than on land or in some kind of container. I have to admit I am starting to get really excited about this, I feel things are starting to become clearer in my mind of what I want to create.
Today I did a bit more of my dissertation, I am now almost at my conclusion. I have however decided to add a few more things about cultures. I have started to sort of figure out what information I want to put into it. I have compared American consumerism culture with UK consumerism culture. From my surveys, It would seem that within the UK, we are more spiritual, with how we react to consumerism traits. 1 in 20 of us actually participated in Black Friday, and it wasn't even in stores, but online. There is a lot of huge differences.
I am hoping to continue into looking into different cultures. I have already mentioned about looking into the Gypsy culture, I have previously looked into Bhutan. I would like to continue this theme looking into Chinese and Japanese cultures and their proverbs on happiness and money. Maybe they have a saying that can effect us in how we think on consumerism and lining our pockets.
I also have decided to look into how charity effects our happiness. I am not too sure if I will be able to fit this all into my dissertation, I am already at almost 7000 words. My limit is 8000, so here's hoping if I do have to shorten some things down to make room it'll work out for the best rather than not making any sense. As I have said before thought, I am very happy with where I am in my dissertation. I am glad I have another two weeks to sit and think about my dissertation and how it's going to work out. For once I am glad I don't have a job, so I can use this time.
