Yesterday we were given the task to make a pattern that we would eventually screen print with the intention to use it as the back to out leaflet/poster. To start off I looked at space age patterns and it was coming up with really generic and basic patterns that although speak to space age I… Read More Movement: Screen printing prep
I managed to cut out my stencil in a way that I was finally happy with although there isn’t much to it. I went with three of the most space age colours I could find, a dark jade, light sky blue and a deep orange. In doing my research on Space Age these were a… Read More Movements: Screen printing
There is a fair amount of continuity in the space age graphic layouts is crazy, pretty much all of the have a title or some text that inclines upwards, they also have a lot of spheres/moons/atoms in the background. There also very reminiscent of the 1960’s with the type choices Below I’ve done a… Read More Movements: Space Age layouts
I love experimenting in the letterpress room, because the outcomes are immediate and you can try so many different orientations/types. With this I had an idea of what I wanted to do going in, that I would focus on the incline of the text as that’s what I’d seen in a lot of Space Age… Read More Movement: Letterpress experimentation
We were given the task to look into design movements and choose three to focus on. I started by looking into movements that I hadn’t heard of before, like the Cold War movement but I couldn’t really find a lot about the movement and it mostly bleed into Space Age. I think most of it… Read More Movement: Initial research
Designing the logo for the app was probably the easiest part. I knew that I wanted something food or restaurant themed, so started drawing napkins knives, forks, glasses, having the F and R involved. The knife and fork seemed like the best option, its simple yet effective. I decided to use quite a thick outline… Read More Map of Me: Logo design
When it came to the design of the screen, I wanted to go a simple a possible. I don’t want to overwhelm the viewer. So I started looking into typefaces that were easy to read, specifically on a screen.Colours that evoked certain feelings, like hope, happiness, calm etc. I settled on Helvetica as the typeface… Read More Google Engage: Design development.
Taking my placement images further, I managed to do a few mock ups of what the screen could look like. There are still a few things I need to figure out with the design. For example, I don’t think it looks nice/practical with centred text, I don’t know if having a horizontal screen is a… Read More Google Engage: Mockup screens.
I’ve been looking into places to put my screen, places in which homeless are most likely to be i.e. outside/inside tube stations, cash machines, outside shops, doorways etc. I took a few pictures and placed a mock up screen to some of the photos in photoshop.
I’ve started to think about where I want to put my screen, where might it be best received and where do people sleeping rough go. These are just a few examples, and I think initially it would be good to just focus on one type of location. So ideally I’d like to just focus on tube… Read More Google Engage: DOOH placement
