The other weekend I visited the London Transport Museum with Jack and Bobbins. I haven’t seen Bobbins for almost a year now (wow!), so it was really nice to catch up and geek out at the posters, typography and signs. (P.S. I am making a vlog, but it’s not quite ready yet so I’ll insert that here when it’s finished!) Considering I’ve lived in London for almost 2 years now, I’m surprised that I haven’t been...

Happy Tri Fri everyone! As I mentioned the other day, I’m pretty pre-occupied with a deadline at the moment so it’s a bit quiet blogging-wise but of course I have a bit of time to appreciate triangles today! I found this set of posters by Derek Kim: If I’m honest, I don’t really know what they’re for as the writing is too small for me to read & I haven’t been able to find any...

I can’t believe it’s been over two weeks since I last posted! Time is flying too fast, I mean it’s almost December! That crept up on us quickly, hey? I’ve been a very busy bee recently and have nearly finished two projects since I last posted! The first I am going to show you is the Limited Edition poster brief for Visual Expression. We were asked to choose a topical news article (and swap it...

An odd post title, but I can explain… We have been working on a Film Posters brief for 2 weeks now, having written a film precis to one of several strange scenarios: Money has been replaced by kittens Politicians are lizards in disguise Karaoke is our national sport Owners are controlled by their pets Mobile phones and the internet fail catastrophically around the world simultaneously I chose ‘Politicians are lizards in disguise’ and produced my...

FMP! FMP! FMP! Final Major Project was the last project of my BTEC National Diploma in Graphic Design course, and took place over 8 weeks. For the project we had to write our own brief; deciding on a theme, final outcomes and an essay topic. I chose to undertake designing and organising a Graphic Design festival, complete with exhibitions, speakers, workshops and an awards ceremony. I decided my final outcomes would be 5 posters – 1 poster...

…..Who cares what picture you see? When you’re hugging with your baby in last row in the balcony.’  Yes, I know it’s Thursday… but who remembers that song? Because I do… and I don’t know why? Reminds me of Primary School…? :S Don’t know lol Anyway… I’ve had this post drafted since the 10th of February, and yet here I am the 25th of March lol This project was handed in….. like 2 weeks ago? Nevermind! I’ve been...

And so the Printmaking award comes to a close 🙁 Here is the final poster I produced: Mostly printed, but I used photoshop to clone out the checkerboard in the centre and to add the text:    You can see the difference, but I think I did quite a good job cloning the background colour? What are your thoughts? I know that the ‘The London’ is quite hard to see because the purple is dark but I...

For my Printmaking final piece I have been set the task of producing an A2 poster and logo for The London Original Print Fair. So far I have learnt how to screen print to make one layer of my poster – the information section (view here) Last week I was having a tough time getting the ink perfect, but I managed to get a print of the right ink level so then I looked at the...

As the additional Printmaking award is coming to a close (start on Multi-disiplinary soon) it was about time to do the main poster! It has to have some kind of printmaking element to it… so we could produce most of it digitally but I decided that I would like to Silk Screen my design. This meant that I had to learn the process though because we hadnt been able to fit it into the lessons…...

I found this video via Effektive – who I J’adore haha If you love printmaking, letterpress, typography, posters or just Graphic Design in general…. you MUST watch this! 8 minutes of your life, well spent/enjoyed. I love the opening quote: ‘Advertising without posters is like fishing without worms(have I got that right?)’ And I just love everything in this video – I wish I could go to Nashville to see it all happening/ get my own...

via Vivid underground : Roland Tiangco’s ‘Dirty Poster’ is my kind of design… fun, interactive, witty and beautiful. How amazing is that? I also really like how although there is really only supposed to be one outcome, many different ones can be achieved because not everyone will smudge the ink in the same way will they? 🙂 Very nice! P.s. I’m not afraid of getting my hands dirty! I would love one of these posters ($80 a...
