EMP. A photography book documenting my Granddad’s work as a harness & collar maker for horses. The book celebrates the trade, skill & the craftsman behind a nearly forgotten livelihood. Hand stitched with a real leather cover (embossed with metal type) and printed on Mohawk Superfine stock.
Research into my Granddad’s harness & collar making for my final project.
Finished for hand in tomorrow. The assembly of it went a lot smoother than my practices! Still got lots to do for hand in tomorrow though…
Coming together now. Cant wait to see a test print of this tomorrow, Especially to see how the ‘Mosaic Leaf’ comes out. Its a free font I rather like from Emptypage Design Studio.
Experimenting again with the new box. Going to stick with this packaging design now… perforated in the middle to turn it into 2 grow boxes. Final week stress.
And MORE development.
Re-thinking the packaging idea.
Lots to take into consideration from todays crit, but it went well and I’m getting closer to finishing it. two weeks to go until hand in.
Possible outcome for the lid & the inside of the lid.
Developing my ‘Food for thought’ grow box. I have decided to simplify the idea behind it and stick to seasonal herbs. After Critiques, I’ve found the wartime style behind the designs worked the best. Here I am pushing this forward with these 4 designs. All are unpolished but there are certain design elements in each which could work. I’m also making the packaging into the actual object you would grow in as well. There will be 4 compartments and I have looked into plantable paper to work as the seeds which will be an interesting twist on the whole idea.
