What Grace’s Tutor Says

Grace has been put forward for student of the month based on the amount of development work and research which she has done for this first module. It is really important for students to keep a reflective design journal throughout the course as this will help to inform the final body of work.

Even though we ask for 5 pages of the journal at this stage of the course, Grace has submitted 2 sketch books full of her own ideas and experiences. This includes research she has found, sketch studies and site visits. It is great to see this amount of effort put into a design journal, as this will give Grace the information necessary to develop her skills and achieve at the highest level.

  1. These were some really great tips, some of which I hadn’t heard of. I was searching something related to interior designing, i found it on the internet. I’ve never really thought about the benefits of making sure that everything is constantly lubricated the right way, but it makes sense that doing so would add a lot of good years to the use of your door. I’ll probably save this page and use it as a reference as I’m prepping my house for Spring. Thanks for sharing!
