De Stijl: Design Is Utopia.

These images are from an activity book that I designed with my group for the current University project called ‘De Stijl: Design is Utopia’. The aim of this assignment was to produce a book, poster, model and promotional items to be displayed at our own exhibition that we would then present.

Brighton Pier.

This is a mixed media illustration that I created in response to an extract from the book ‘Brighton Rock’ by Graham Greene. I went to Brighton and took photos which I then used, as well as drawings of them, to create this. I eventually had this printed at A1 size. I am pleased with the design, however now I realise that there are a few changes that I would like to make. I would like to edit it so that the hand drawn images blend better together.

Stop The Traffik Adverts.

These posters were designed to promote an organisation called Stop The Traffik and I particularly admire how hard hitting they are, because although the issue that they raise is a sensitive one; human trafficking, I think it makes them even more effective. 

Trip to The V&A.

Whilst visiting V&A, these three illustrations caught my eye. I really love them; the textures and the composition, and I really admire the illustrator’s distinct, interesting style. t

Trees.

These three illustrations, I did a while ago, but I would love to start using more texture like this in my Graphic Design degree work if I get the opportunity. I love the rough texture that monoprinting creates, and combining this with ink, drawings, photocopies and the original film. The photo is my own, taken on my Photography NCFE course.

Photograms.

This is a photogram that I did a while back, but I just really love the effect of the two transparent objects overlapping. I would like to use this for a further illustration if I find the time.
