Zest: Corporate Identity

Im actually quite happy with this work :) I don't know if my lectures would say the same? But I am pleased with the end result.

Rage Against the Machine

This Rage Against the Machine project aimed at provoking people to think about energy consumption. I wanted to show how many items and appliances that people have unnecessarily switched on in their houses at the one time, wasting energy.

I am undecided whether I am entirely happy with these designs. Hopefully I will be able to go back and have another look at them sometime.

Finished Experimental Type Work

This is the finished work from the experimental typography post I made a few weeks ago.

Ok so here is my typeface, Bimini, along with the promotional mailers I designed. The idea of part of my mailer is a 'kit' to encourage the audience to enter a competition to win ' Bimini' by trying out recreating something similar yourself 'D.I.Y' and sending it to be posted on my website. I also designed some postcards and a box/envelope to put all the 'kit' in when posting to designers, agencies and companies. I was slighty worried about this item and felt it let my over concept down. My lecturers agreed, however they really liked my overall idea and all the other items I presented. So I guess that good? I am going to work on the mailer box and try to produce something a lot stronger :)

To be continued.............

Experimental Typography

So 3rd year has begun :) I have been working on a brief that has basically let me make a whole lot of mess with as many materials as I can find (as long as they are white). I wasn't too keen at first to be honest but as I started to work I came up with lots of ideas and actually had some fun.

These are just a few of the ideas I came up with :)

I feel it has come to the time when I am extremely distressed! haha

My best friend Dominique selfishly went to America for 3 months at the end of May. I have missed her a lot but I have been keeping myself amused. I am very happy to be able to say that she will be home in 15 days!! :D cant wait! 

thennnnnn 5 days later we are going to Spain! WOOP!


Summer '09


I thought I would make a post as I have neglected my blog for sometime now. To be honest this is due to the face I have not done anything very interesting. I have spent a lot of time with family as I am living at home in Port Glasgow for summer. 

I also spent a few weeks in Carlisle with friends and been on a few day trips here and there. 

I have just started working on re-designing my website so watch this space....haha x

Annual Report Brief

okkkkk so these are the designs I did using the images that I posted a couple of weeks ago. I had them taken and edited to use for a brief thats have been on going for a while now in uni. There was a choice whether to do Art Direction or Annual Report. I stupidly chose to do the annual report for and organisation called 'The Ramblers' Association'.

now for the bad bit...

I really liked my images and designs I used them in. I felt I had a not bad to good crit after the hand in. However I got a not so good (i feel) mark :( i was given 55%. Which is still respectable, however, the comments I recieved from the tutors seem much more deserving over a higher mark.

To be totally honest I am just quite annoyed with the way things are being run at the moment and would like some changes....but oh well!

here are a few of the designs....

Which makes me even happier :) that is my best mark to date so on wards and up wards hopefully?!

We has to design for an academic series called 'A Very Short Introduction' and also design a cover for a fiction book.
