So...for our PPD session, we have been asked to find 5 examples of Graphic design that may influence our Speaking from experience brief.
Due to the fact I'm not set on one idea of what I want to do yet, I tried to find kind of diverse examples but all sticking around the idea of illustration as type...

Shaz Madani
I used this the last type that we needed 5 example of type...riiiiight near the beginning of the year. But I still like it, so why not use it again. I love crafty things and I Really like 3D lettering BUT having the 3D letters and photographing them.
Julien Vallee
Once love of crafty things influences my choice for this one. The colour and style f type etc. are well suited to the audience - it was for mtv one, so its not exactly aimed at grandparents.
I chose this because I like the idea of using something like it to communicate with the audience. I like the simplicity of the packaging...maybe not the pale blue, but the crafting of it.

Mike Perry
I did have some examples from Hand Job...but then I forgot to bring my book and scan, but it was pretty similar to this just good examples of illustrative type.
Mr Bingo
At the moment I'm going through of phase of loving this stuff. But for this, its just another example of the style of illustration I would like to work with.
And...I can't believe that just by drawing hair I know who his "hair portraits" are of. Love it.

Speaking from experience...

So, after I looked at the first 5 problems that I started with...I decided they were a little bit boring and stuff. I just didn't really think any of them could keep me interested. Soo, I started again. I started thinking about the things that bothered me throughout the course...

What Problem?: I identified my problem as; not wanting to work with people i'm not friends with/people I don't necessarily know. This was definately something that bothered more at the beginning of the year than it does now.

What am I going to do about it?: In my work I aim to somewhat advise the audience or 'inform' them that its not as bad as you first think.

How will I do?: I want to work primarily with type, but not type like helvetica etc. more in terms of illustration as type because I think that would be more appropriate to the audience and it will just make it more interesting in general. I'm not 100% sure how I want it to be presented, I just know that...I don't really want to do a poster.

Lets go!

I can't believe how long I haven't posted for? wow.

The End...

What is a line was handed in today...

Here are my final(?) resolutions,
I didn't know whether to say my animation or my patterns were my final resultions.


Colour in Wallpaper/Wrapping paper :o
I coloured one of these in after I printed it and loved it :D I would love to have colour in wallpaper!
I could hve done so many different combinations, but lack of time etc. didn't help.

BUT Because I like them, I might do some for myself.

Below: I was simply experimenting with backgrounds, I think the polka dot one works quite well with the girly feel.

I need to sleep.x
