TUESDAY, THE TWENTY SECOND OF MARCH, TWO THOUSAND AND ELEVEN, FROM TEN THIRTY IN THE MORNING, UNTIL ABOUT ONE O'CLOCK.
There was i, in class, on time. The workshop with Paul was to be the first of sixteen that i have assigned myself, as part of the final major project for the first year of the FdA.
We looked at composition and how can it be used to serve, in our case, the purpose of designing both a dust jacket and a poster for the book we must present at the end. It was interesting, a good old hands on workshop.
Composition follows seven principles: Harmony, depth, variety, repetition, unity, opposition and balance. For the workshop we were given an A3 piece of white paper with which we had to fold in order to create a dust jacket for a folded A4 piece of paper simulating a book. We had to grab one of the principles. I used depth. Then, we were given some text, "London trough the eyes of a designer", which will also be the title of our book, and a couple of images to choose from. We had to apply text and image to what we had. The idea was to be able to end up at the end with a dust jacket that could be unfolded and work as a poster as well. Mine did, to some extent.
Bellow are some images that i collected, (from many many) from the links that came in the presentation Paul did. Great material, very graphic design at the LCC. Enjoy.
The links to the websites i used to collect these images are:
