Which is lovely jubbly for our pocket. However, still waiting on Clare Chapman from arts and events to get back to us with help with the Carboard House Party and details on tickets, alcohol pricing and selling… will keep you updated

This week I hope to:

  • have the party budget and details to a fine T
  • design the tickets (and maybe print them?)
  • Write my profile for the website (why am I dreading it?)
  • Bug Martin about Vis Com
  • Design and build a model structure for the Elton fine art/architecture colloboration project
  • Blog about all the research I’ve been doing

Until then… x (elzie)

We need to build a communal space like this : and to also maybe beat this guy on having the biggest treehouse in the world. BUT! only if we really need the space. otherwise it will be kinda wasteful.

Today i am at home* designing tshirts. serious business.

AND! today the canvas bags arrived. I only ordered them on Tuesday or something. amazing.

Yesterday i ordered the tshirts.

Ladies:

S 10

L 10

XL 10

lovely!!

Today i also need to find out how much it is to run a stall at Beat Redemption. I think we’re in for Stitch : )



*it’s way too difficult to work at uni when designing. No internet in the studios means no design reference, new fonts or research. Also, i find it easier to design on my own, and to get feedback after, rather than faltering on every aspect as i’m trying to gain approval for every part, if i work with other people around. I need a scanner that works all the time with my mac, etc etc etc.

I’m not trying to split away from the group, i just have a terrifyingly pressure-filled deadline of TUESDAY for 4-6 tshirt designs and i will be running on 30%capacity at uni, The end

HIDE AND SEEK... can't find you!

Hi all

Ellie KP and I were search for us on google today and it’s not good… You Can’t Find Us!

I know we are new to this and there’s lots to learn… and some of us aren’t wanting to become online media whores but we all want our audience, whoever they maybe, to be able to find us when they go looking… so we need to look in to ways of improving our ‘Googability’  and ‘Web Presence’… specifically for phrases like ‘project shop’, ‘outsidein collective’ and our names.

All of this bring me to our online manager… Ashley… he (you) is coming to bournemouth this thursday and will be focusing on all thing about the online world of us and Project ‘Shop’.

MAIN TOPIC will be the new website… its design, look and function… and most importantly content… much to do not much time to do it!

other topics to discuss include Fund-raising events such as stalls at Beat Redemption and Stitch and the very exciting cardboard house party!

The biggest news of today is The Mighty Tshirt Endeavor. Which is even larger than it sounds.

So we’re looking to sell tshirts to make money for shop. This means initially putting in a large amount of money for an even bigger return. which = pressure for my designs to sell. So …here we go.

For 60 tees, in 6 different sizes it will cost £139.something, so each tshirt will cost £2.316666666forever

And if we sell them for £10 we can make £460 profit for shop.

-That’s if we sell 60 tees before it happens. But! It will mean making a profit for the collective to use in the future.

and maybe [we] should think about canvas bag[s]

£29.30 for 30 bags. including p&p

I have begun putting my sketches into Illustrator and tracing them to make vector quality designs. So far, they don’t look very good, but i’m working on them. Aiming to have 6 different designs in total, to go onto screens to be printed using the method of silkscreening.

And have a large number of tshirts printed and ready to sell before the 13th of Feb…!

-We plan to sell them at Beat Redemption and Stitch at 60 Million Postcards.

Also um um um…

I’m going to try to finish the products i previously mentioned, by putting barcodes onto them and getting them spell checked. exciting.

Patrick’s gunna be working on a ‘posh’ net for Instant Fame. It might be a pentagon shape or something sexy.

That’s all for now
