Concerning the signage typography, I’ve decided to create a simple guide presenting the way that it would look in real life.
Once I had all elements considered I went on to creating the moodboard for our exhibition. It was done in InDesign, and consisted of all of my favourite ideas: the colours palette, the wooden pallets, the floor signage, the sketchbooks casually placed on the shelves, and the simple hanger hangings.
The printed work could be hanging of hangers (again, I’m trying to find imaginative, but cheap ways to make things work).
The sketchbooks could be opened up on make-shift shelves, or on another type of furniture, such as narrow tables. They could also be placed inside the wooden vinyl/magazine type of boxes, such as these.
Regarding the signage I like the idea of it being created through the stencils—another cheap and (in my opinion) cool-looking way to approach this. The signage could either be sprayed on to the floor through the stencils, or alternatively, vinyl-cut and glued on to it.
I feel that this idea will connect well to the cold space of the rooms that we will be ehibiting in, and give it an ‘industrial edge’.
Following my colour research for the Summer Show, I then looked at the materials and layouts. I saw some great stands made out of wooden pallets, which is a great (and cheap!) way to create recycled furniture. It also has the look that I like—natural and rustic.
The Cass Summer Show is slowly approaching, and it is our task to make it look great.
