Final Reflective Blog of the Get off the couch project.


Completed with my six-week project with the studio, ‘Get of the couch’ health and well being assignment. I’m quite happy and proud with the way I have approached the project, in terms of the timetable I have worked around, with both practical and theory side work requirements.

I believe I had left enough time through out the project, were I didn’t have to try squeeze, my time on the requirements and was able to plan out for my final presentation and also had time to practise it over the weekend.

I had delivered my presentation quite well and had a quality product to present for the project. I was also quite pleased that I was able to delivered all the points that I wanted to cover in my presentation with the time limitation given.

I have found this project quite insightful and have learnt quite a bit over the past six weeks spent on the project with a pair of new skills also gained on the way of the project.

I am looking forward to a well-deserved break now.

Week Six, Tenth Blog

Slowly coming towards the last couple of the days of the deadline phase of the project.

During the past week I’ve spent constructing the garment, and also spent a day doing a photo-shoot of the jacket and also the product in use.

I also got in contact with my friends sister to get hold of the bike again for the photo shoot which was great, and took it for a test, on the streets and also around the park area. I can confidently day, I’m happy with the garment produced and that it is a functional product for consumers in the market.

Here are some photos of the day:









Over the time frame, I have come across some difficulties as part of the construction of the garment and the fact that one of the material pieces had ran out, through the construction phase. The pattern took several attempts to modify.

Over the next two days I was focus on completing my portfolio work and also having the presentation for Monday morning ready. So I have enough time to revise and practise to deliver with confidence.
