Metahaven Poster

A poster we had to create in groups for the designers Metahaven. We were given 5 rules we had to stick to within the brief, our rules were 1. Only straight lines 2. only use blue and yellow 3. retro theme 4. must fold twice 5. space theme. We interpreted the 'space' theme as using negative space within the poster, and sticking to the 'retro' theme whilst abiding by this rule. Group help from Molly Jones and Chloe Johnston

Shifting image

Another brief given at uni was to change an object's meaning by photographing it in different ways. I chose a fork and took photos from different angles and perspectives, changing the lighting and composition of each frame. The words I tried to portray are Unattainable, Spooky, Feisty, Gregarious, Mundane, Monumental, Precious, Languorous, Bashful and Subdued. The poster when printed will be folded into a book, so the upper half of the poster is upside down (so when it folds all the pictures are in the right position and facing forwards!) Poster size is A2.

Illustrator - vector view

After an illustrator workshop we were given a mini brief to draw the view out of our window using the programme. This is the first time I've ever used illustrator before, and it was actually really addictive!

Occupy Bristol

One of our projects for communicating with images was 'sense of place'. We were all given a location, and then had to represent it in 3 images at 3 different times of the day. My location was College Green, and when the brief was set, it was when the protests began all over the country. I started to photograph the Occupy Bristol protests and used these for my project.
