BA(HONS) Graphic Design: Summer Project
Title: Anthology of a City
Brief: To focus on first hand research and create something personal or commercially orientated.
I chose to explore Istanbul, Turkey. I researched the architecture of the city, housing mainly. I also looked at panoramas of the city from the 18th and 19th Century, which directly influenced my final outcome.
I created my own interpretation of Istanbul, trying to portray the dense beauty of the city from the view of the Bosphorus. It is an illustration over 2m long. I have included seven rise and falls, as the city is built on seven hills, as well as Turkish flags and minarets, which often protrude the skyline around the city.
