Summer Project ; Dreams

So after a few ideas, I have found my project for the summer.
I have started and have ideas growing as we speak. (well technically whilst I sleep)

I have always been interested in dreams; my dreams, others, and like to find meaning in the dreams as well as connection between them and my life.
In most cases I find they connect closely to my feelings, in some other cases they are too random to even comprehend. 

I decided to visually recreate my dreams, and interpret them in my illustrative form on the 7th of July.
Dated and explained, this is Dream #1

A visit to Pick Me Up London. Somerset House.
Second year I've visit in a row. Great work. Great enjoyment. Great inspiration. 
Looking forward to next year already.
I believe it's still open for a few more days.
Enjoy my photos of the visit.

One of the Graphics briefs were to recreate a list of your favourite things.. As large or small or literal.
I came across these, By Jeongmee Yoon.
[look it up if you can. loved it]

The last photo is my recreation inspired by these images... enjoy

And lastly my recreation of the concept.
Favourite Things.
My home.
30+ photographs taken [some including me]
Definitely using this concept for the final piece. excited.

What is Graphic Design?

My immediate answer to this is to be clear and concise.

When I see a logo on the train, or on billboards I find myself flustered at the look of them.
I ask myself the general design questions. Why did they choose that font? Why did they choose that figure?

In particular I found two brands that represent exactly what i mean...
In STARBUCKS we have the round green logo, great and instantly recognisable, a global icon.
However what is the purpose of the mermaid? I have heard many theories on this piece of design, but I wanted to see if I could better the logo to how I saw fit.
Below you see my version.

Similarly to Starbucks, the second logo I chose to use is THE CAMBRIDGE SATCHEL COMPANY.
A clear brand, easy to read however the logo uses a bicycle as the base figure of the logo for whatever reason.
Again I am sure the choice for this design is valid, but I took it upon myself to edit these logos for a clear definition on what they are advertising/selling.

What I considered good design.
