The Big Day

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This black and white themed wedding is taking place between two performers, she’s an actress and he’s a comedian. The pair want their wedding program to be like a performance program with their wedding party appearing as the cast. The running order of the day has been spilt into acts. The invitation follows the same theme and is presented like a theatre ticket with a perferrated end that can be used as the RSVP.

Design Museum rebrand

Over the last number of weeks I have been working on rebranding the Design Museum, London. The museum cover every area of design from fashion, graphics and achecture. So were do you start? Ask yourself this, what do all design discipline have in common? An idea.

How could I visually represent ‘an idea.’ When an idea strikes, it is like having a ‘light bulb’ moment, where light is shed on the problem or task. To represent this typographically, the ‘i’ could be turned upside down to create the light bulb effect.

I placed the notion of the ‘idea’ as a central part of the typographic identity so that the look would be familiar and different simultaneously. In the main headlines type will be lowercase apart from “Design Museum” and each ‘i’ will be inverted to accentuate the idea driven basis for design. Secondly, I have tried, where possible, to integrate practical text information of every aspect of the design touch points that the visitor will encounter, from the website to the amenities, this will give familiarity to the museum identity.

Part 1 of 3rd Year

Hand-ins are now over & I’ve had time to recover. Here’s some of my work, I posted earlier in the year with some of my ideas but I’ve now refined these to finished pieces.

First up is the Annual Show that runs for 1 week every year, it showcases students work. The building opens its doors to the general public however the show doesn’t just appear students spend the whole year working on there master pieces so my campaign ‘Behind Closed Doors’ portrays the work that goes on before.

Next up ‘Music by Design’ not the easies brief. We had to create a motion (yes motion, not my strong subject) using 8 popular graphic design terms. Here’s what I come up with:

To go along with this motion we also needed to promote an event that would showcase the whole classes take and how everyone has portrayed the same 8 terms.

Lastly I had the pleasure, not, of writing my dissertation. More enjoyable was designing it, however my piece of writing was about words moving off the page, so as you will see words and image are falling off the page, this was meant to happen.

Music by Design

My 2nd and main piece was to create a motion movie containing 8 different graphic design themes image, type, shape, form, scale, rhythm, colour & tone. Below is a storyboard of my idea. I have tried to make each section of this come together but don’t as yet have the final piece.

Also to go along with the motion design I have some promotion to do for an event that will showcase everyone’s motion piece. Because it was to promote everyone’s I wanted something that could be used by everyone so calling the event 8 would allow everyone to produce this 8 in different styles but it would have the same layout etc as each other.

Behind closed doors

Over the last 12 week things have been a bit busy. Along with doing a church rebrand (more info on this project soon)

Well I’m back to uni and my first brief was to produce a campaign to promote the end of year show in June 2014 within the Belfast School of Art.

Image

Behind closed doors was my campaign title because the Belfast school of Art is closed to the public all year apart from this week. I wanted to show a peek into what happens during the rest of the year making the end of year show the outcome of a year’s hard work.

There will be other promotion pieces which have yet to be completed so watch this space.
