Liberty & Index on Censorship Live Project...




The pictures are above pictures are the results after the first presentation and feedback. With the clients liking aspects from all routes, I have combined the three. Using the font from route three, the image from route two and the idea of black ink and colourful paper from route one.

With the ideas in place they also would like me to use this imagery to create a small animation to be able to be sent via email (this will be put up on this blog once final).

The whole marketing idea will also be used on placards and, with the help of volunteers, will be taken around universities to promote the event, so this idea will be in relation with the whole event theme of protest.

Liberty & Index on Censorship Live Project...




Above are a couple of examples of the first ideas for the live project for Liberty and Index on Censorship.

The brief is to design an iconic, engaging idea that incorporated image and text that will appeal to students and encourage them to be part of the event to promote protest.

I started by researching the whole image of protesting and realised that most imagery that arose was of the protestors themselves holding boards with handwritten slogans on. I took this idea and made three different fonts from handwritten/handmade elements (these can be seen on my flickr page). Combining these with handmade images, symbols related to protest, I created these three routes.


First route was created by using just type, and using this as the imagery as well, the only ink used would be black and thus reducing the cost of printing as the budget is £500. The posters and flyers will be printed onto colourful paper to make it stand out and still be coloured, just not through ink. Second route is similar, however it uses an image and different font to create another appearance. The image is of simply drawn protestors, which can be transfered to various medium, including badges and t-shirts. This is to be printed onto white paper to make a statement. Third route is using colour, so slightly more expensive with printing, The image is of a bird, symolising freedom, which has been handsewn for a handmade look.

UAL...



Above are two illustrations for the UAL website glossary. A couple of my fellow students have been asked to illustrate the glossary and, to make it a bit more varied, they asked a few of us to help and illustrate a couple of words each.

I had ''Communication'' and ''Formal/Visual Elements''. The monster billowing the smoke message of 'Yarp' is all about old methods of communication...trying to move away from the old idea of two people talking. The second in the robot being made up of building blocks...showing how an image is being made from various elements.
Unfortunately no colour, only greyscale, could be used, but I think this makes it look like an ols style illustrated children's book, so not all bad.

Postcard...


I received this postcard today from my parents and I though it was an awesome picture, which can be interpreted in so many ways...one of which is rather fantastical...a little like it should be an illustration for Angela Carter's ''The Bloody Chamber''...

Killa Kela


Above is the final poster I have designed for the Killa Kela night being held at The Pad Nightclub in Bedford. Through my work with Dirty Disko I was asked to design the main poster for this night.

Moving away from the standard microphone picture, I decided to play on the fact that beatboxing can sound much like a person who has a ghettoblaster for a mouth, hence the main image. I was given the logo and mimicked that for the place and date bubble. I was asked to make the poster bright to catch the eye of the passer-by. Through research, I looked at the posters that will surround it and took the colours that would most stand out...it is completely different to what is up at the moment, so won't blend in with the others.

Going to print today...
