haha, I didn't do anything after graduation (which was last June) for a month i think. I just played games and slept as long as I can imagine, believe me, you need a break and after that you are good to go doing cool stuff again.
the dilemma of function over form vs form over function was also my problem when I was still in fzd school. It takes a really good designer to balance both, for this one i chose this silhouette/form since i was going for more the entertainment side. You know theres alot of stuff that doesn't make any sense in movies and I'm quite aware of it as well. Yes, I've seen all the weaknesses and have solutions for them but I've already moved on to another project and learned a lot from this. I just keep moving, you learn as you go.
