Create advertisements, a social footprint and a necessary website to fit.
Using a variety of colours which are easy on the eye and can identify between different insurance types. I created a site which caters towards the two insurance types it offers, making a simple yet effective landing page.
Say it & Spray it is a campaign for youtube channel in the hope to promote grime music within Bournemouth. I started by sketching some designs up and experimenting with different font types upon finally deciding on a handwritten style font to give the feel of it being done by a permanent marker, connecting with the style of graffiti but with a modern twist.
Once the logo was done, I dabbled with a introduction video for it, using a template and customising to the needs for the channel.
I finalised by creating a background for the youtube channel to help build a stronger feel for the channel, giving the whole thing a more professional look.
My Final Major Project for college we was tasked to create our own brief and to create something to feature in a exhibition, choosing what to do was probably the hardest part of it all! I decided to try my hand at something new – package design. Researching into many package designs including that of ‘Innocent Smoothies’ & ‘Jimmy’s Iced Coffee’.
The name was an interesting part of the process, I wanted to give the brand a personal feel and so chose to called it Mickey’s Milkshakes as it rolls off the tongue and is easy to pronounce and remember. Throughout the project I wanted to stick to giving it a personal feel, I achieved within the logo and slogan – ‘Made from 100% happy cows’, meaning that even the cows enjoy making the milkshakes, no unhappy cows in the process of making Mickey’s Milkshakes!
On the carton features:
Front – Name, flavour, picture and slogan.
Sides – History, process of making the milkshakes, nutritional information, amount & calorie counter.
Back – Ingredients, suitable for vegetarians logo & recycling information.
I created several advert designs as this was going to be the piece that grabbed the attention of passers-by. Drawing on the slogan, one of my advert featured a digitally edited cow to give it that all important smile!
Upon finishing my adverts and picking a final favourite, I needed to create my milk cartons in 5 different colours… I mean flavours! After 10s of experiments and several disassembled cartons from Sainsbury’s later, I finally came up with a working carton (without the bottle-top).
Now everything has been made up, all was needed was to print my advert in A1 and then to display my Milkshake in my designated exhibition space.
I was designated a project for college in which I decided to create a magazine about what interests me – graphic design!
I started by researching vastly into graphical magazines for inspiration about what I could include. After the research stage was the plan/sketching stage in which I sketched out various layouts and logo designs upon deciding on a final one.
Next was the tricky part, creating content! I looked at what I enjoyed and what could of helped me when I was starting in the graphic world. I decided upon tips, articles, gadgets and I took upon myself to interview… myself!
Once that was out of the way, I got dirty in inDesign where I create the magazine & layout, taking special care to the file formats and bleed lines. An annoying point in the creation process was trying to piece everything together without pages being in the wrong order.
