I felt like doing something type based. I kept it really plain and simple. Hopefully in an elegant way.
Front cover. Font is OPS DIN.
Pages 1&2. Outlining the early steps of the project.
It looks a little odd when it's spread out like this on a flat design because you don't get the fold and the two sides sort of merge together. It looks better in the real book. I'll get some photos up.
Pages 3&4 in which we find the script for the voice-over.
Pages 5&6. Outlining the later stages of the project.
Throughout the book I used different point sizes to emphasise some words and different tracking and spacing to make the layout and type seem a little erratic and free-formed in the same way that the illustration was. I think the coloured bars hold it together well.
6 day project to 'imagine where Visual Communication might be in 2022' focusing on illustration.
Didn't initially like the brief, but once I started getting some ideas on the go it became enjoyable.
Here's the first one I've put together. It's an A2 tablet used for drawing that essentially would allow you to create piece that look genuinely hand drawn in a digital format by having paper texture settings and things like that. More info on the image.
I have no affiliation with Apple, iPod or iPad. There are no plans to put this product, or anything similar, into production as far as I am aware. Just in case anyone gets confused. Although it would be fun to start a rumour that Apple are bringing this out.
Back to uni for my 3rd year of Visual Communication.
The first project out of the bag is to create an A3 poster which promotes VisCom to prospective students whilst delivering both my own take on the course and also presenting my specialism. Obviously illustration is my specialism so the only thing left to do was come up with my take on the course. After some thinking I came up with "Difficult But Ultimately Rewarding." To me that pretty much sums it up. Here's what I'm working on.
Musk Oxen. Ox's are stubborn and therefore represent difficulty.
Vector Musk Oxen.
With a side order of diamonds to represent the reward.
