I went really hard making a presentation for the teens and it really helped me to cut down my kind of intense copy and figure out how to structure each bit
Also really helped me to start to flesh out the brand aside from colors and fonts bc i could use icons and imagery
Taught a Death and Christian Hope class at Ursuline on Wednesday!
Made a 51 slide summary of my research presentation
Recorded the audio so i could listen back and hear how i explained things
Presentation had gifs and i guess i’m old bc none of the teens got my jokes??
Answered a bunch of questions about college/life/graphic design
The teens are nasty and wanted the deets on how cremation works
Also two of my high school teachers told me that i was doing God’s work with my research so like ayyy
Brought up questions of what are good examples of media that show good grief support? And do we get good impressions of how to help people when we do watch things where people/pets die? What makes content on grief not so great?
I already have the majority of my honors project finished!
Still need to study for the cremation licensing test and take it
Do more outreach
Meeting with Puhalla on what my deliverables should be?
Should i be showing/creating materials for the outreach that I’ve been doing?
A large amount of the time that I’m spending on my honors project is doing outreach and public education on my project and it’s a major element so how should i make it play into it?
Does it make it as worksheets, journal prompts, do and don’t zines, presentations, social media posts, sympathy cards??
Takeaway cards with nice messages like “I’m thinking of you” and “your emotions are valid” and reminders to spread
Just put everything i have into a doc and just start designing
Midterm review on Friday!
