So it was Easter Sunday yesterday, meaning easter egg time! πŸ™‚ (I also discovered I can’t remember much of the Easter story… and I don’t know why we have easter eggs, other than for an excuse for card shops and supermarkets to make money!?)

The last project in the Typography unit is to design/make our own typeface! I think this is a great project, and really creative – perfect for meeee πŸ™‚The only problem is that, well everything seems to have already been done! After some random brainstorming, I narrowed it down to the ones I liked the best, including: Ice cube typeface, Ice lolly typeface, Orange segment typeface, Lipstick typeface (which I have wanted to do for a...

Modern and Manuscript – not usually 2 words used together to describe one piece… My mini dictionary defines these to have meanings of: Modern adj. of present or recent timesManuscript n. book or document, orig, one written by hand; copy for printing When you think of manuscript, you think of old, important writing, one of a kind…. and most probably, Bible? Am I right? Well this project is going against that (well, no, it will...

After Hilary’s lesson today, it would seem everyone is even more desperate for a Distinction on the Improbable product Branding/packaging project! After lesson Kirsty, Danielle, Stacey, Kelly and I headed into town… for shopping and a bit of photo taking at first but it turned into packaging, posters and bags collection! I had wanted to take pictures of some of the products in Boots, but even with a letter from Hilary to verify that I...

As part of Design Studies we are doing research and projects based on Typography…. including hand renderings of type – eek! We’ve been working on these Illustrator drawn Jazz posters… which are kinda turning out a bit like work by Swiss designers such as Josef Muller-Brockmann, Emil Ruder and Armin Hoffmann, if we’re lucky that is. Chris has given us kind of a spec. table… with the typeface, alignment, size, weight, style, colour scheme and...

A new project with Hilary… The Improbable Product! I didn’t really have many ideas for this… found it hard to brainstorm ideas!

….. how much does that sign being on the door scare you? Well our teacher Paul has been kind of… threatening us (well it WILL happen anyway) with having to draw some naked people.
