First Impressions of Manchester

My first ever trip to Manchester was a mixed bag and may have gone very differently (for better or worse) if I had gone with other people.

First Impressions of Manchester




My first ever trip to Manchester was a mixed bag and may have gone very differently (for better or worse) if I had gone with other people.


Here is a round-up of my first impressions and what I learned from my day trip:

 

Pros

  • Plenty of galleries and places to eat.
  • Zones are clearly signposted such as China town, the restaurant row leading up the train stations.
  • The buses are extremely frequent and straightforward to use.
  • A single journey from Liverpool or Chester is an hour.

 

Cons

  • I totally forgot how rainy the city can be and I definitely hadn’t prepared enough layers or a rain coat!
  • I relied far too much on google maps go tell me how far places were from the city center.
  • The citizens are kinda rude… like pushing past you, rolling their eyes, not saying thank you, and ignoring you if you hold a door open for them…
  • No outdoor shelter from the rain so never get food to go.

 

Linked below is a more in-depth video covering what I did there, to give you an idea of what the galleries and Chinese quarter is like. I hope some of the sensory aspects I cover helps prepare if you have autism to0!

I am being encouraged by my university to record work including development, explain concepts and pre4sent final work to a profession standard. It gets me into a good habit for when I compile my portfolio later this year.

Below are some pages from a PDF presenting my work from a project I just handed in.

There are several briefs included and all my solutions are derived from my collection of Japanese artefacts gathered over the Summer months.
