After trying out a few different ways to approach this project, I wasn’t happy with the outcome. The large-scale photography just wasn’t working, and I found it hard to apply it to other merchandize and designs.
Today it was the day to photograph the 3D installation—a day before my hand-in. Unfortunately the weather was not great, but at least I managed to get my sister to stay with the kids, so I didn’t have to drag them there with me (much, much quicker way).
Finally the day has come when I found the time to make the illustrations for my FMP—the inconveniently required 3D part of the project. I did a lino print, a watercolour, ink, colouring pencils pieces, and a collage. I kept it simple, each medium presenting itself—watercolour was painted with watercolour, ink pen by ink, collage by washi tapes, etc.
Green Man is an art and music festival in Wales, which has been going on since 2003. In 2013 its branding has been put into the hands of Lovers, based in London. They’ve created a very successful brand identity, and have been maintaining it ever since.
After the unsuccessful attempt for a playful photography described in the previous post, I’ve moved on to my initial idea, which was to photograph a variety of art tools and an art pad/paper with a wide aperture lens, blurring the park background.
Now that I had all the pieces designed, it was time to apply them to a real setting (digitally).
Once I had the simpler designs in place, I moved on to the infographics. I’ve already blogged about my research into this area, and posted a number of them that I really liked. In general, my favourite style was worn-out, textured, and looking like a real old book. I like the humanness of it, and tend to stay away from work that looks too digital.
