Transcript

  • 1. My winning submission for a brief from the Beaney Museum in Canterbury asking for a poster to promote an exhibition by the artist Laura Thomas.
  • 2. An example of my life drawings.
  • 3. An example of my life drawings
  • 4. Two more examples of my life drawings
  • 5. This piece of work I created by using pieces of cut outs from a pattern, I positioned them randomly on a A4 area and extending off of it to create a whole new piece of art.
    I used watercolours in this piece of work, it took me just over an hour and a half.
  • 6. Packaging and Advertising
    My Female and male perfumes, dream and fuel.
    The concept of this poster was to have the male faded out as if ‘dream-like’ whilst the female is dreaming of the male this relates to the perfume title ‘dream’.
    Research of advertising that influenced my poster concept:
  • 7. My duo Point of sales poster.
    This would be displayed above my perfumes when on sale on the shop shelves.
    ‘William Alexander’ is my perfume brand which ‘fuel’ and ‘dream’ are sold under.
  • 8. Packaging for my fuel and dream perfumes.
    I kept the imagery subtle to give a gentle therapeutic perfume vibe, reflecting the perfume through it’s packaging.
  • 9. Advertising, Coca Cola.
    My final outcome.
    The poster celebrates the classic global brand of Coca Cola in a positive way.
  • 10. My drawn thumbnail idea 1
    My worked up thumbnail 1
    My retro style poster
    My drawn thumbnail idea 2

  • 11. after
    Via Photoshop I enhanced this image to it’s best possible state.
    I used Levels, Smart Sharpen and the Pen Tool: Lighten, to brighten eyes.
    before
  • 12. 'MILK', I created in Photoshop a piece of typography that gives us the illusion of a glass structure that resembles the milk bottle whilst the white portrays the milk. 
  • 13. My final amended  typography poster,
    Portrait
    Changing my poster from Landscape to Portrait I re-open it in Photoshop and separated the background from the text, graphics, logo and description, I could then Rotate the background CW90 Degrees. Changing it from Landscape to Portrait. 
    The reason I had to change my poster from Landscape to Portrait was that the brief pacifically asked for a portrait poster this meant my Landscape poster turned out to be unsuccessful . I solved this problem by turning into a portrait poster.
    Previous landscape poster
  • 14. I created a copy of GQ Magazine 'Unwrapped Anne Hathaway reveals all' from scratch, but this time I used Britney Spears as the theme of the issue and added my name to the cover beneath the main heading.
    My magazine cover was created from a blank InDesign  document.
  • 15. My illustrated ‘JUST MY TYPE’ poster.
    I used very calm colours that give off a fun yet sophisticated feel.

  • 16. These Christmas Card designs were created in October 2009 during a 4 week period as a part of a LIVE Christmas Project at college.
    This LIVE project meant that there was a real client with a brief and as a college group we were asked to create a new Christmas card design that would be printed out in the UK
    Paperchase stores. This competition was between many colleges throughout the UK.  
    Here are two of my Paperchase Christmas Cards entries.

  • 19. These patterns were created by cropping an ink splat effect and duplicating it many times.
    I was looking for a screen printing effect and I would say I have accomplished this.
  • 20. The top two images are screen shots of my blog header. The red header being my current.
    This other image is another intended blog header design I independently created, however it was unsuccessful and I felt it did not work with the design of my blog.
  • 21. My Quentin Blake style of The tiger that came to tea.
    These other two Illustrations/paintings were created in January 2011 in the combined space of 2-3 hours.
