Hi.

Welcome to my blog! I document my adventures in lettering, design & business. Hope you enjoy!

Documenting my life as a designer & student

So I’ve been writing this blog for two months now and I’ve written about a fair few topics already. I’ve shared my thoughts in written form and hopefully given some informative advice so far, but I felt like there was something missing! It’s quite hard to tell the full story about life as a designer and a student without being able to show you properly, so as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words and that’s where my newest venture comes in!

Who

Me!

What

I’m basically going to document my life as both a designer and student through video, then edit and upload it onto the internet for the world to see. That means sharing what I’m doing at work, what I’m doing at university, how I’m feeling about it all and what it’s really like to be in both of those roles.

When

I’ll be videoing from Monday to Friday every week, and uploading the video/s the following Wednesday evening.

Where

Wherever I go, my camera will go too, so you’ll see it all. However, it will be mostly at uni, at work or at home. Since the focus is about design and student life, I don’t really want to dilute that by showing you what I’m eating or when I’m at the gym or at church for example; however if that really is what you want, then maybe I’ll add that stuff in more in the future.

Where will the videos be, you ask? They’ll be uploaded to youtube.com/c/Holliearnettdesign and will be shown here on my website for easy access too!

Why

I guess this is the big question, right? Why on earth would I want to put a camera in my face, share what I’m doing and tell you how I’m feeling about it all? Well, I’ve recently realised that what I love more than design is seeing other people fall in love with design, and helping them to achieve their dreams as a designer. I’ve also realised in my three years of study so far that being a student can be pretty daunting and quite hard sometimes, so I really want to help make the journey through design school as easy as possible and help people on the journey from being a student to heading out into the real world. That’s why I started this blog, and now why I thought it would be a good idea to video my life. Whether you’re a designer, a student or both, I want to take you on the journey with me to show you what life is like and how you can smash it at university and out in the real world!

 

So there it is. There’s a quick rundown of what I’m doing, how it’ll happen and why I’m doing it at all. I’m really excited to share this with you and I hope that it will help people in some way, even if it is just entertaining to watch me make a fool of myself all the time! If you have any questions about the whole thing, or just want some more information, let me know! You can also head over to Youtube and subscribe so you don't miss the first vlog on Wednesday!  

Much love, Hollie! :D
