Every week as part of our professional practice lectures we are asked to submit a poster for this. I am going to weekly add a new poster to this post of my submission to this.
I literally left this until a few hours before the cut off point being Tuesdays at 4.pm. I am hoping as the weeks go on I can start to make more of a connection with who is speaking and improve on what I can produce for these.
Looking at Poster Zine the publication, I wanted to create something that could represent fashion culture and feminism but in a non literal sense. using colour and tone to create the image. Exploring bitmap and halftone techniques. Its not perfect but still had fun exploring combining these digital processes.
My time management is kind of going a bit mad. Also wasn’t 100% sure that it would be Alice Isaac who would be coming in to do the talk. One thing that really stuck with me she is my age and has only started doing what she loves maybe there is hope for me yet.
I thought as this lecture is going to be on Halloween using that ideas to create the poster fitted perfectly.
Owen gildersleeve works a lot with paper layering to create these really cool interesting illustrations. I thought how can I bring this into my poster. Using combination of digital techniques layering and removing elements creating the illusion of hand lettering through the use of Photoshop techniques.
This weeks professional practice lecture poster submission. I looked at Hattie’s website to get an over view of her work. Some of which she has produced are effective multi layered designs. I picked one of my favourite and responded to it in the way that I work. using multi layered collage. Using photo manipulation and digital techniques.
(Hattie Newman is now coming next semester so will re-submit this then)
So this submission was not my best as I had a real lack of time which is not really an excuse but I had less than a day to produce this. I have learnt maybe its not wise to take a creative risk when time is not on your side. I decided to test out using a 3D layer which in . my head should of worked as i was was working with a 3D object trainers, But this ultimately was a disaster, losing all colour tone ended up not making sense of what i was trying to communicate. But I still submitted it even though i was not happy with this, but could reflect and see were the mistakes were held.
Last weeks professional practice lecture. I decided to look into one of Lucienne’s projects ‘Can Graphic design save your life’ which opens up the conversation about health and design. “the widespread and often subliminal nature of graphic design in shaping our environment, our health and our sense of self”
I took one of her colour themes and this idea about health and design. Playing with the limited colour theme and layering the content of of my design on multiple layers and transparent elements. I was gutted that I missed this talk, But my poster got chosen as the winning design by Lucienne Roberts which is such a good feeling.
This weeks talk from paper cinema fits in with the theme of my current project which is based on a performance. I wanted to make this poster have the illusion the whole thing was made from paper, keeping it simple with 90% grayscale colour theme and using paper brushes in photoshop. Im not 100% convinced this has worked in the way in which I pictured in my head. But I have submitted it for the fact that its ok if something doesn’t quite fit how I expected it to fully work or communicate.
