I think it’s easier to look at design when you can’t understand the content and this work by Patricio Murphy is the perfect example. I’m not distracted by the text; all I can see is the modern, dynamic layout and imagery. I don’t understand Argentinian, so luckily it says a bit about the project on Patricio’s Behance – below is a programme for Glow festival…
The layout has so many interesting components, with the tables of information, diagrams and the general layout too – I am starting to become quite appreciative of info graphics. I also really love the colours used in this project; bright but understated at the same time.
I also really like Patricio’s identity for the singer/rap artist M.I.A. These images have a range of media used in them, or so it looks anyway. I like how layers have been used and everything isn’t perfect – text is overlapping images etc. It gives a helping hand to the grimy feel.
It’s quirky, rebellious and individual – spot on for her character! The mix of black and white imagery with colourful patterns is definitely something I would love to try and pull off one day… I think it works really well.
