This is my last semester at design school, and I could not be more happy about that. There’s just not enough time in the day for life and school… which is why I only post here once a week if I can manage it, and why my BFF is still waiting ever-so-patiently for her still-to-be-designed website.
At any rate, here are a few posters I designed in the first 3 weeks of class this semester.
I… um, co-opted the flag idea for this one from a conference theme proposal I’m working on for my employer. I showed this poster to my boss, and she’s decided to co-opt it back for the cover of the conference event guide– with a few changes, of course. The flags are actually an alphabetic code, and spell out “Charleston Harborfest”.
This one, though receiving attention from the judges, did not win the contest. I expected as much, as it’s not quite as colorful and simple as some of the other entries. I took the image from the last painting I completed, and developed further for another project –namely a magazine spread about toxic advertising and corporate mind control. Quite appropriate for a graduation exhibition show for a graphic designer/marketeer, yes?
& as long as we’re subverting the dominant paradigm, y’all, let’s have a little sumthin-sumthin about global warming:
This one is due next week, for another school-based contest. My instructor likes this a lot– she tends to favor typographical solutions. I think it’s got a good chance of winning…no monetary prize for this one, just a minuscule amount of campus fame. yay.
For my next
trick studio practicum project, I am creating a self-promo piece for the Exit Show and beyond. This will consist of a handmade/painted portfolio case (constructed from two 18″x24″ canvases) which will match my super deluxe business card. As part of my process work, I am photographing the daily progress of said canvases. Here’s what I’ve got so far…
papers, layer one– brought to you by the letter A, which, btw, is the grade I hope to get. It also stands for Angie, which– btw– is my name, if ya didn’t know. 😉 I am slightly concerned that the big red A might call to the literary mind a little book called The Scarlet Letter. ahem. not exactly an association I want to encourage in the professional world… thoughts? When you saw this painting/future portfolio case, did you think immediately “ADULTERER!” or no?
