Project 3c - Idea Generation

The final part of the three briefs, in which we were told to choose between the two fruit and veg, in which I chose the dragon fruit, and procede to advertise it.

The images above are the final pieces.

Silkscreen Induction

This was the result of my induction into silkscreen printing. I'm quite proud of it, except for the minor irregularities.

Project 3b - Secondary Research

The second of the 3 part brief. For this brief we had to research into our fruit and veg, in which I also discovered that peppers are actually fruit, it is just a common misconception that they are vegetables.

Yes I am aware that I have spelt Argentina wrong...my bad.

Project 3a - Primary Research

The next 3 briefs including this one are all linked together. There were no final pieces for this brief, we just simply had to draw what we saw with a fruit and a vegetable. We had to be as creative as we could with what little we had.

Although there were no finals, I decided to paint bigger versions of the fruit and veg to experiment with scale as well as background colour.

Project 2d - Explaining the Offside Rule to a Martian

For this brief, we had to explain how to use certain objects, I chose a microwave, to someone who had never seen one before. We were not allowed to include numbers, words or anything that they wouldn't understand. The finished design had to be in the style of infographics for ease of communication.

These three images above were the final booklet, order is bottom upwards.

Project 2c - Variations on a Theme

We were given a choice of objects, my choice was the object brick, and we had to experiment with the object 100 times to try and push yourself further with the creative process.

CCA - Illustrator

For Creative Computer Applications, we are taught how to use the programs we use everyday properly. These two are the best images I produced while being taught the program Illustrator.
We had to design a website using as many tools of illustrator as we had learnt and the theme could be anything at all. In this I used the rotate around a point, pattern, brush, live trace, pen and object tool.
A biplane created using the pen tool, while designing in perspective. The perspective doesn't quite work, and can be improved, but it's not bad considering how difficult I made it for myself.

Project 2b - Close Cropping

For this brief we had to create images that have been close cropped. We were given themes to base these images on, and we had to make two for each one; An illustrative piece, and an abstract one.
The Morning After and Telephone Box

Childhood Dreams and Hidden From View

According to my classmates, I "raped the page" with designs more than usual in this project.

Project 2a - How to Draw Anything!

The project was to experiment with perspective. We were taught how to use 1pt, 2pt and 3pt perspective and we had to apply these skills in our own way. There were no final pieces to design, we were just told to experiment.

My first attempt (besides two hours of it in college) of life drawing, I am really pleased with the bottom left drawing of lucy, as it actually resembles her.

Our tutor said that he was expecting the graphic designers to be able to draw a box in perspective as it would come in useful for the future, so I decided to draw one to do just that.

Project 1c - Little Boxes

The brief asked us to create 8 10cm x 10cm cubes. We were given a list of subjects, and another list of rules of how to construct the cubes.
Here are 4 out of the final 8 cubes I designed, from left to right;
Pop Art - repetition/pattern
The end of the pier - die cutting
Chris Ware - collage
Mao Zedong - complimentary colours
