it's so pretty!

This video is truly sublime. It is gorgeous. And both of these statements are true regardless of the fact that it is centered around bloody BMXing. The editing is masterful and the graphics set it off really nicely have a gander, tell me if I'm wrong.

new business card? you tell me.

Here is the possible design of me business cards. Let me know what you think. (For some reason the colours change if you expand the images. This blue you see now is the colour.)

and now for something completely different

So, the reflective journal is done (that is what all that other stuff was by the way) and here is something I've been meaning to post for a while. I found these posters ages ago and I think they are brilliant. Using specific typefaces' properties to create beloved Star Wars characters. Now, I've never been a massive fan of Star Wars but respect has to be given for the execution of these pieces. The company that produced them are, Italian based, H-57. Check them out they have some very clever bits and bobs.

Here are a few pages from my PDF portfolio, enjoy.


These are my covering and speculative letters respectively.

c.v. design

Here is the newest of the new of what I have to offer. Hot off the presses and raring to go.

The styling for the c.v. is reminiscent of the piece I produced in the second year. However, I have refined it to make it easier to read and I re-designed the logo as The previous one had run its course.


Complexing Utopias

This was a weird one! I'm still not entirely sure what was going on in this presentation. It wasn't for lack of trying either. A graduate of the course and her Venezuelan colleague came to talk to us about what they did.

They had decided that a standard design job was just not right for them, it was soon after this I got lost. The theme of the talk was taking graphic design and spreading it over a further field, expanding its purpose and use and the people who use it. Also there was a suggestion of getting everyone (non designers included) involved with the process as that would lead to more varied ideas and suggestions. Not a bad idea. However, where I got confused was when they spoke about one of their concepts. It involved taking a complex idea and simplifying it. Sounds good so far. The next part is where my mind really began to dribble out of my ear. You take your lovely simplified idea and expand it out to more people, thereby confusing the issue again. I am assured that they knew exactly what they were talking about, I did not. Unfortunately, the fact that the presentation was nearly inaudible did not help proceedings either.
