Sustainable Me: Group Print

The first term of second year.. ugh, We were set the theme of sustainability in which he had to produce four outcomes, two screen based and two print based pieces each media consisting of one individual and one group.

This is my group print outcome, We emailed designers asking them their position on sustainability, the message we delivered is intended to be relevant to their response. The design agency we contacted disregarded the practice of sustainability stating that they believed the duty wasn't down to them, but down to the government and other authoritative organisations.

Our idea was that we would develop material that would be delivered to design agencies as a military operation to give that initial impact. The material would be designed reflecting each agencies profile, the agency we contacted designed for a lot of out pursuit centres and companies of that nature, hence the army/survival guide theme.

(Design and created by: Jay Price, Alex Morris and Jessica Curtis)

In the land of..

I loved this project!

This was a brief set at the end of my first year at university, it was to develop a poem into a narrative, with the outcome being either a film or a book. The poem was a basis for the narrative and the out didn't have to include all the original copy. The outcome must reflect themes and ideas within the poem.

The poem I was given was 'The Land of the Bumbley Boo' by Spike Milligan, as you may know Spike Milligan is famous for his shows such as 'The Goon Show' and 'Q9' also said to of inspired the Monty Python.

The themes of the poem are escapism with a comical appeal, it's not only aimed at children but adults as well.

One Hundred Years of Solitude

The brief was to redesign the book cover for Gabriel Garcia Marquez's 'One Hundred Years of Solitude'. It was set by penguin as part of the student awards competition, I had a bloody bad time with this one..

James and the Giant Peach

I have finally managed to photograph my work.. I decided against just uploading the PDF outcome.

Anyway.. down to business, this is my final outcome for Puffin student awards. The brief was to redesign Roald Dahls classic 'James and the Giant Peach' for its fiftieth anniversary..
