School update

Two practical projects have been handed in (of which none I am completely happy with). A cross-platform application project, and two catalog spreads ‘explaining technology’. Will bring them up again for some real revising, while spending my holiday here. :)

Until then, a 3000 words essay is to be written. Currently stuck in the research phase. ‘Creating enduring change in behavior with information design’. I might be on to something there…

This has annoyed me for a while

Dear ASOS,

Please stop using the Ø as a hip&cool variant of the O on your front page adverts. It looks ridiculous, dumb, and even a bit repelling, especially to us Scandinavians – I believe we represent a big customer group. It is the 28th letter in our alphabet, pronounced as the u in ‘sun’. Try saying 70% øff with that in mind – sounds a bit weird, doesn’t it?

Kind regards, Kari Dahn

Guy Fawkes Night

Went to celebrate Guy Fawkes / Bonfire Night yesterday with two lovely girls from book design. My knowledge of this celebration was restricted to what we learnt about GB in english class in high school. Poor Guy; stupid Bloodthirsty brits…

Er, I had a great night anyway! And one always has to try taking photos:

Not the biggest bonfire I’ve seen. We have bigger ones on Sankthansaften.

The Mackinder Cat

Look who came to greet me welcome back last tuesday…

The Mackinder Cat! She’s so lovely. I intend to kidnap her one day.

She even has an own fanclub here in the Student Halls, look. Hee, campus c at. Reminds me of a certain lecture yesterday, about a research on how people write their address on their garbage cans. Sounds exciting, no? Well, it was!
