March 31st 2010: Guillotine

If you don't know the original album cover this probably doesn't make much sense.

Hungry for better fonts.

Take a metaphor. Visualise it.

March 30th 2010: Tomatoes

Layout Design 2 Double Spreads

Okay, so we've already seen this one, but I've added in the correct text to it, and put in my paragraph styles to seperate the interviewer from interviewee. Some small problems occured though, as since I moved computers I don't have the same fonts, so it's changed the font from Adobe Garamond pro on my body copt to times new roman. And also I don't have Futura condensed extra bold on here so it's put the title on normal futura and so it wouldn't fit in the allocated space. It's supposed to read "Intelligent Design" since Ellen Lupton talks about design as a religion in the interview. Most obvious copy writing ever. I also added another 5mm to the gutter as my text would have been chopped off, which meant I had to make the page wider so I'm now running a 200x210 setup.

Here's the second spread. I needed to keep it fairly similar so that it stays with the theme. So we have a continuation of the different sized text boxes creating space with pictures sat in places to create more odd shapes. Overall I think this works quite well. I tried not to let the extra text (that I had to add in to fit in the whole interview) overpower the page and I think that by leaving a lot of space around it I managed to do this. I also added some page numbers and section tabs in here but they don't seem to have shown up in the export which is pretty annoying. Oh well. All that remains is to create illustrations/photography and get rid of these big orange boxes. TBPS. (to be posted soon)

March 29th 2010: Arette IA

I was going through my cameras the other day. This is the oldest/weirdest one I have. It's a 1957 model and has some odd controls on it.

March 26th 2010: Steven Tyler

...and his enormous mouth.
Another Birthday pic.

Collab with Darvil for 'Room Six' window design

Original ideas sketch for window layup.
But got told that there is A LOT of information that needs to go on these windows so the design can't be too crowded so I had to reduce it. Also I managed to get cs3 trial today so I can do uni work over Easter. Win.
Illustrator mock up version styley.
Much less detail.

March 24th 2010: We Planned A Revolution From A Cheap Southampton Bistro

Went to see Frank Turner last night.
I love these faces and legs. Loose drawings where its at. Weird shaped eyes, dodgy chins & really thin legs. Yes!

Hand drawn expressive type session.

Pretty standard.
Expressing preservation using type.

Layout Mock Up

Here is a layout mock up for my typeradio project. Orange boxes=images. I like the use of blank space and uneven text boxes.

March 22nd 2010: And You Can Find Imbalance

Pretty dodgy styles to be honest with you. Should've used the same pen for the whole thing and then just the outline in thick rather than the ghouls as well. hmm.

March 14th 2010: Globe Shoes

I don't know whether it's just the shape of my feet or whether it's universally true. But Globe Shoes are the most comfortable things ever. I'm on my third pair in a row. They are amazing. The new ones are Superfly...apparently. Winner.

March 13th 2010: Uber-Violence

Droogs baby.
Just because.
It was inevitable that whilst bringing back drips some splatter would have to occur as well. Alongside some dodgy type...

A brief and untriumphant return to speed drawing. Amusing though I feel.

Ellen Lupton

For the new project at uni I have to design a layout for an interview with her in a magazine format. So instead of getting down to some actual work I thought i'd draw a dodgy portrait. win.

Buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got, set them free at the break of dawn, till one by one, they all are gone.
