    WORK SAMPLES

  • EXPERIMENTATIONI have used a range of objects to produce these marks, textures and imagery using acrylic paint.

    INDPENDENT PRACTICE PROJECTMAGAZINE

  • INDPENDENT PRACTICE PROJECTMAGAZINE

  • TYPOGRAPHIC SYSTEMAs i researched into the different types of systems for typography, i decided to experiment by designing some layouts with the systems applied. The system above is referred to the radial system

    RADIAL SYSTEM

  • APPLICATIONFrom the mark making experimentation it created some interesting imagery which i applied as a design onto a potential layout

    DILATIONAL SYSTEMRADIAL SYSTEM

  • TYPOGRAPHY WORKSHOPI attended the Grids, no grids workshop where it involved Vaughan Oliver presenting his calender designs in which was decorative rather than funtional.Our task as a group of three was to create our own interpretion of the specific month we got as-signed (April). We were expected to move away from the typical organised and structured calender format.

  • BEAUTY AND MAKEUPMy development for a theme of the magazine led to be based on an interest of mine - make-up. As i did some furthur research into beauty and make-up maga-zines, i began to experiment layouts using collages.

  • MAKE-UP ILLUSTRATION COLLAGENewspaper and watercolour

  • APPLICATIONI drew out a silhouette of a woman in order to replace the black with

    the collages i previ-ously constructed. I

    also applied the water-colour painting effect

    to this image.

  • INSPIRATIONVaughan Olivers calender piece has inspired

    me to create what is not expected from the typicial make-up magazine. So i wanted to

    construct something out of the norm. Instead of the typical imagery illustrating make-up, i wanted to use imagery ive produced looking

    something like this (left).

  • I created an entire magazine for my final major project at my Foundation Art Course. Its concept was based in an art college where one student every month is featured to be able to get to know their fellow student and uncover a sense of their personailty and what they do. This magazine in-tends for people to not judge a book by its cover.

  • BRIEF: MAKING A GRID & BREAKING A GRIDUNI BRIEF PROJECTS;

  • EVERYDAY USE GRIDSEveryday use objects may resemble a grid. Here i have played with photography to distort this image of a MacBook keyboard. By distorting the image it had broken the grid resemblance.

    UNI BRIEF PROJECTS;

  • FACE GRID

  • FACE GRIDDrawing a face with a grid ensures facial features are in their proper place and in correct proportion.

  • As i drew the grid over a face, i carved out certain grid blocks to make it appear as if they are slowly dettaching away from the face.

  • BRIEF: RESPONCE TO BIOGRAPHY RESEARCH

  • CINDY SHERMAN: SELF PHOTOGRAPHYThese photographs are self-photographed recreations of a few of Shermans imfamous photography. I stepped out of my comfort zone and into hers.

  • To create this typeface i experimented with mark making using acrylic paint. This in particular, i have used the end of a hairclip. To finalise a neat typeface i had scanned the mark making prints and edited the letters.

    BRIEF: MARK MAKING TYPE

  • BRIEF: LIMITATIONS

  • To create a themed typeface using only the limitations of paper and scalpel. My theme was based on Alice In Wonderland. (Inspired by Julene Harrison).
