This morning, a friend and fellow BAGD student pointed me in the direction of 'Wordle', a 'word cloud' generator, as recommended to her by her own dissertation tutor, demonstrating the popularity of words within your dissertation, and perhaps giving a hint to edit words that may be too reptitive.

Fortunately, I was pleased with my outcome, with the predicted case study of Innocent and the key argument and discussion points (brands, consumerism, etc) being particularly highlighted, but, overall, quite a balance in the distribution of words used, which, hopefully, will make for a far more enjoyable read.

The submission and completion of my 2013 graduation dissertation.

Feeling very relieved to have found an end to my writing as I set off to bind two copies later on today to then submit next week. Realistically, I feel as though I could have developed chapter 2 into further depth analytically, but overall I am pleased with what I have achieved in a reasonably short space of time, and feel really happy with the confidence I have developed in regards to my writing and research, which, hopefully, will be translated through to my personal and professional design practice from this point.
