BA(HONS) Graphic Design: Professional Practice Lecture Poster

These are some experiments generated by cutting letters out of paper and rolling the page up into a ball. They are a selection of images created whilst designing a poster for Martin Andersen’s talk. 


BA(HONS) Graphic Design: Typographic Detailing A3 (continued)
This is a redeveloped version of a poster displaying a quote form Lionel Messi where he says: ‘The day there are no improvements to be made is a sad day for any player’
This is pictured on scrunched up paper in order to reflect the constant imperfection, and how there is always room for improvement. View Larger

BA(HONS) Graphic Design: Rotation Project

Brief: Choose a 21st century topic and produce a creative response

Taking the topic of genetic modification and using a BBC article about a current study taking place, an installation piece has been made. The study works with modifying olive flies so that they die and cannot harm the crop. The installation consists of 100 origami paper flies, in three sizes, all which contain a summary of the experiment and a hard-hitting fact or image related to the study. The idea behind this is that to learn about the study the viewer must unfold the fly thus killing it, which replicates what the study itself is doing in real life.

The image in the top left shows some of the text and images that are printed on both sides of the flies. The image in the top right is an example of how the origami flies look when hanging and the bottom two show what the flies look like close up.

Brief: Further the work that you produced in the Typographic Detailing project

A work in progress, animating the body of scans and overprints that were produced during the Typographic Detailing Project A3. The idea of the video is to show how we are bombarded by negative news (black) and how it paints a very dark picture of the world, only allowing little bits of good news (orange) to be seen.

Brief: Further the work that you produced in the Typographic Detailing project
Taking the issue that the news is far too negative, three different newspapers were bought on three different days and any negative articles, articles that complained about something, articles that focused on or put a negative spin on something were covered up. These can be seen as the black sections. Any adverts were covered in newsprint. The front cover of this particular paper only had one article left to read once the alterations had been made. GIFs of all three papers still to come. View Larger

Brief: Create a 20 second video about an object

Taken as an experiment to learn how to place image in time with music, this was created as a fun, simple outcome.
