Layout spread ideas for my square zine.
Experiments putting my new photomontages of someones dream into a publication on newsprint (worked really well) and standard printer paper.
Another set of poster ideas created for a campaign to keep the beaches on the south coast clean. Customisable to each beach and has a fun but underlying series tone to them. Hopefully I will be given a deadline to work to soon! and fingers crossed the council will sponsor my client and the posters will be seen along the south coast.
Umbra. Directed by Malcolm Sutherland. Great animation.
An image made by Jerry N. Uelsmann. Research on dreams led me to this artist. Very strange manipulated photographs. Really interesting, check out his website: http://www.uelsmann.net/
Second day of painting. Trying to capture the oddness of dreams using this medium. The choice of colours were inspired by a book called The Modernist that contains a lot of collage style artwork and elements of design that was seen frequently from as early as the 1950’s to the 1990’s.
Working in the garden doing some painting today. I hope the final image is successful…
Photographs from a free U.V art exhibition today in Bournemouth. Was worth a little look…
Had fun in the studio creating these. No meaning behind them or story to tell. Just playing with the style and freedom of working with found images.
My design for the branding of the whisky appeals to a mature audience yet looses the history behind the drink. The lack of imagery and detail of text is intentional and punchy. The potential purchaser doesn’t look for the age, history, how it’s made because these are obviously not here from a quick scan of the design. Instead, it holds the fact that it is still a whisky and not a low market drink such as cheap cider or cheap wine. The name of the drink ‘entirety’ is bright, bold, feminine and confident (the floral patterns add to this) and it suggests it is everything you need from a drink of this kind.
Sara Feneli: Dreamtime. A book I need to take out as it relates a lot to my project. I found it interesting how her book cover was similar to my research poster. The title is in a similar style (using dots) and the background reminds me of night time. I have only just seen this cover so it seems like I created the poster in the right kind of style!

A digital montage inspire by someones dream. Dream is featured in the poster below. I would prefer to do this art by hand but the internet and computer allows me to use more precise images and manipulate them easily.
A poster I created to show my research thoughts and process. It is A1 in size. The star covered background represents the minds size and depth while the typography attempts to rationalise what we cant understand. The reason for the text layout was also to make the viewer read it in a broken way. Just as dreams are often hard to make sense of (but in a simple way). Had a lot of fun creating this. I cheated a little bit by using a brush for the stars but the icons were made from scratch in illustrator. (low res as poster large)
