Poster Challenge – WEEK 3 & 4

The past couple of weeks have been busy. I went to an Interview, for a 4–6 week Internship, at Whitelabel UK. Also, I have been training and have become a Supervisor at Trespass in Aldershot. I have also begun playing with watercolour pencils, for some very special invitations, all to be revealed later this year.

So in between work, and the daily drawings which are going well. Still, I feel they’re not quite good enough to post up. However, two more poster designs have been created.

WEEK 3

Week 3 – ‘Fading Away’

I wanted to play with Typography again, this time using a single tone with a gradual difference in the opacity, on each character. Keeping the design simple and minimal it allows the word to be enhanced, with the effects used.

WEEK 4

Week 4 ‘Every Adventure’

This design looked completely different, before I added the subtle gradient in the background and the shadows on the mountains. However, the design again, is minimal (I think that’s my thing at the moment…) with the added interest of colour, simple typography and a calming sense of feeling. This is something I would love to produce as a vinyl transfer or poster OR even a screen print to sell.

A Mahoooooosive update!!! + Messy Fun Time(s)

Well, I spent some time in Berlin recently and what an incredible trip that was! Such a wonderful cultural experience, the East Side Gallery and all the street art were amazing! The Bauhaus was even more impressive (although, it did seem a little orderly and way too clean). It is a trip I shall remember for a while.

BUT some sad news, I didn’t pass the ISTD Awards, which is a shame but I have an incredible piece of work for my portfolio and that’s what matters. Other news, is I have deadlines fast approaching, so the pressure is on to complete my projects.

One of which, I spent THREE days in the screen printing room, producing these little post card prints, depicting the phrase, with nautical origins, and survey responses in connotations. I wanted to use bright colours, layers and typography to show this. Next I would like to choose the best 10, out of the 30 prints (1 of each) to print on a large scale and maybe chromo blast / dye sub onto some fabric. AND make some packaging for it all.
