Working on my brush control as an experiment, for this style of letter. I am continuing this feel of experimentation and using mixed media to produce my ident for my promo unit. I feel this is going well, my hand is becoming steadier. I still require more practice however, and possibly to try out other colours to experiment with.
My aim with this is to get the best curves possible (I might need to go bigger for this) but the small size is good to practice with. I don’t want to overwork this, but I do want to get it as close to being right for me, as possible.
Wish me luck!
This is what I got up to, today!
As part of my Visual Culture Research Project, on the evocative natures of Vinyl Records, I pressed some type with some words I asked a few people for. This turned out really well and once they’re dry I can scan them and change them up for my outcome, (such as colour, size, position etc.)
Of course I am covered in ink, on my hands, arms, clothes and face. If I came out clean, I wouldn’t be working hard enough or having fun at all!
As part of my Live Design Brief Unit, at university the first client based project was to design a poster to convince the people about the power of the poster, in the 21st century. This was set by Fenner Paper, a company who specialises in organic and recycled papers.
My response to this brief, was to experiment with inks and drawing on many coffee cups as I could, to try and work away from the computer and make something that was, essentially different to everyone else. My motive was, to bring back the traditional mediums in poster design. Even though I wasn’t short-listed in the pickings, from the client himself, I had good fun designing and producing this piece. It gave me some stress as most projects do, but this was good experience in print production and working to a client based brief.
Today, I just had a fun challenge, set to us in a unit called ‘Professional Practice: Live Design Breifs’.
The first brief, we were set a few weeks ago, is to design and produce a poster design, convincing the power of the poster, to the people. The client is Fenner Paper, who uses 100% recycled paper. And this task we were set today, was to help us free our minds up a bit, to create something in a short space of time.
My Team’s word was ‘Warn’. We had to use this word, to inspire our design.
So, what did we come up with?
A piss take on the warning signs, we thought this could be something humorous on a serious nature, seeing as there are so many of these out there, it was difficult to produce something original.
