Designer in the making ‘Sfiink’ invites you to take a dive into her life as a growing creator in the big city of London. It’s her first week back in year 2 at London Metropolitan University and she looks eager to explode with answers.. So let me waste no more time.. Continue reading How well do you know an artist?
Music is the key to reliving those memories stored away. By sitting back and listening to a track that takes you back – imagining a past experience.. Flashes of the atmosphere as the song plays in the background.
For this project I was asked to produce a series of 3 posters that communicate a feeling/association for three songs.
My theme for my posters is based on the adrenaline and reflection that is produced from the tracks I have chosen. Influenced by Duggan’s ‘Pterodactyl’ I began listening to K-Koke ‘Cold Roads’ that inspired me to draw the images he was creating from his words. I took objects out of the stories and sketched them to pin his story above his head.This began my idea of playing with reflections.
The images above are the steps through my process, researching designers, experimenting with idea’s and exploring my feelings that related to the tracks.
My final posters relate to events that was seen, felt or heard at the time of the song playing, black and white style to add effects of the strobe lights flashing as it darts different shapes in my posters. I am very pleased with my final posters, when I look at them, I am able to see and feel the moments which I have captured and illustrated which was my aim.
Challenging drawing exercises.
Using a range of materials/styles to produce a range of expressive drawing recorded from both an object and outside around me.
This was in fact a challenge for me, as I have become obsessed with detail and neat designs. It was also a great chance for me to let go and explore me techniques that I can interpret into future designs.
Over the Christmas holiday, I had a lot of spare time to concentrate on my drawing techniques and experiment with new ideas.
