Major Project in Graphic Design | Familiar Phrases and their Nautical Origins

Behold, my Major Project in Graphic Design!!!

Familiar Phrases and their Nautical Origins!!! 20 postcards of 2 different dimensions, 10 posters A2, AND a wooden box!!! The packaging has a screen printed logo, for the project and each print, shows a phrase, what it means today from several people, and the origin on the back, in a postcard format. The posters, are just plain on the back but the print from each postcard is the main attraction.

Lots of hard work, blood, sweat and tears it is finally finished!!!!

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.
