The intention of DG000 is in my opinion to learn how the system works. You get from everything one little piece and you have to find out what you have to do with that. But this assignment was also one of the reasons that the start of this study was really confusing. What was exactly an assignment, what where to expert meetings, how does this intervene with your project, what did DG001 inside this assignment, where do I have to be, where to find my timetable, where and how to deliver my final deliverable. These things all became clear after I made the booklet so eventually this assignment was really useful but I think that there can me a more and clear way to give the students some more information about what they have to do and a more centralized information point.
The booklet was fun to make although some things were hard to understand I think I covered the most important pieces. The picture is the final deliverable.
DG220 Introducing electronics
DG220 was an assignment I chose after advice from another student, a B2.1 student. This is one of the reasons I like this study, the contact with older students is pretty direct and always present, great! This assignment was to increase the level in electronics. I saw a lot of people working with breadboards and wires but was a little bit afraid about it because I had no experience with that. After this assignment I can look to a breadboard with confidence because I may not know everything about it but I now know what to ask if I need help and advice.

Video for Out of Office
In my projected I had Kirsten van Dam as Coach she together with Sam colijn are having a company called Out of Office. This company is a trending, branding and design company. Kirsten asked me and Yannick Brouwer if we wanted to make a video about a seminar. Of course I said yes. This was really interesting and our first experiences in the ‘real’ design world. We had three cameras and recorded the sound through an external soundcard. After that we had to edit everything which was harder than we thought because it had to be one logical story but the video should be around 3 or 4 minutes. The seminar was around 40 minutes. What can you skip and what has to be in the video. You have to listen real careful and know the story otherwise it is strange for people who see the video for the first time.
