disperse 2011

June 15, 2011

So, three years later, my degree in graphic design is coming to an end. We’ve been hard at work since we finished our final projects, managing to create promotional items, generate publicity and produce an (addictive) interactive website.

Currently we are setting up our exhibition, ready for the shows in Bournemouth and at D&AD New Blood.

It’s fantastic to see everyone’s work coming together, acting as a reminder to how far we have all come as designers and as individuals.

Taken from the website:

Disperse is a metaphor for our class as a collective. Like the particles of our logo we will fly apart, our various career paths leading in every direction.

There is also a subtle implied metaphor in the way the particles return to create the logo once again just as the strong community created on the course draws many alumni back.

We made it!

I wish everyone the best, here’s to a fantastic show and a successful career!

Alan Clarke – Olympic 2012 Promotion Posters

October 20, 2010

A talented young designer who is making his territory in the design world.

I enjoy the simplicity of the design, as if limited by a 2-colour print press machine. It is reminiscent of the pre/post war posters found in the London Underground, making full usage of opacity layers and intriguing shapes to suggest motion and imply the different sporting disciplines offered at the Olympics.

It makes a stark contrast to Wolff Olins’ controversial logo, it’s fresh to see Clarke not take a “contemporary” approach to his designs, any form of photographic manipulation or heavy photoshop reliance, it’s good to see the concept shine through.

Blank canvas…

October 5, 2010

Back to university, final year of graphic design, first briefing of the year, we received the following:

Image of paper

A bit like A-level Art, being greeted with a blank piece of paper and not having a clue in what to do with it.

Where to begin? What to represent? How to manipulate the most generic stationary item that so many take for granted?

Could be something symbolic, environmental perhaps? Could be practical and direct? Could even be a weapon (damn those paper cuts…)?

Could be playful, artistic, pointless?

Good thing is that we only have a week on this otherwise we could really go on forever on such a simple thing.
