FAO YEAR 3: Touchstone Submission Due Thursday 11th December by 5.30pm

Touchstone : a test or criterion for determining the quality or genuineness of a thing.
Before the Christmas break we're asking you to upload a formal interim document to a year 3 submission blog (details below) by 5.30pm on Thursday 11th December - after which time the submission blog will become locked again.  

Your interim document should comprise the following:
Part 1) A 'Touchstone' mission statement: this should clearly index your project, giving the details of your original proposal through to the specifics of your anticipated outcome (submission) and publishing context.   Your index should encompass all constituents of your hand-in. You might be asked to further specify/reduce/increase your intended outcomes if the course team determine it necessary - or if your mission statement is too vague.
Part 2) Your 'Art Of' thus far. This is to help you in managing this important aspect of your submission, but also to foster opportunities for feedback on layout/design/typeface/content etc. - design elements which are sometimes overlooked or less discussed because, traditionally, the Art Ofs are made available only at the end of a project.

Part 3) A brief production schedule for the remainder of the project (Now until submission).

Please note; we will be using your Touchstone documentation at point of assessment to gauge the completeness - or otherwise - of your final submission. The Touchstone Submission is both a 'snapshot' of your work so far - and an assessment index for your tutors and External Examiner post-hand-in.


Q.  How do I access the Submission Blog?
A. Please email Alan your email address (either gmail or one you use for blogger). Alan will then send you an invite for you to accept. Please make sure you accept quickly or the invite will expire. Instructions on how and where to post are included in the introduction page when entering the blog. Alan's email address is: apostings@ucreative.ac.uk
