Shipping forecast Typography

So, after simultaneously juggling 3 ideas at the same time, it has come down to this.
Will be set into squares and rearranged – or tried anyways.

Busy busy week

Last week was a busy busy week – which included getting sick.

a-la-Thomas Allen. Not sure I like my set of images here – rather flat images.

I also had some physical fun with glass and typography – from my Shipping forecast project.

A lot has happened because I do not remember mentioning the shipping forecast project here yet – which was set 3 weeks ago. Maybe I should post more often. I think I get lazy because I need to resize images 3 times every time I take them. Once for the final print – once for my journal, and another for any web submissions. Lazy me.

Rest of the images are here on my flickr.

But technicolour Pachyderms are really too much for me.

This little drunken moment in Dumbo used to scared the shoes off me. Though currently the tune is addictive.

This was a response of mine to a fellow student’s picture of him on a train. Guess where these luggages are heading.

Helvetica – Arial

I’ve been having an amusing time (how scary) spotting Arial & Helvetica and seeing if I can spot the differences on the spot.

Go look:

The day before assessment

Well, today is the day just before hand-in. I’m almost finished and it’s only 11:40 am, so I’m not doing bad. My module file is so thick it won’t close at the moment – which makes things a little difficult. I might have to employ some string to tie it up.

Just a photo of 2 of the final booklets I’m handing in. This is a booklet representing my personal struggling with a library book, which had 36 pages ripped out.

This booklet is a graphic representation of a list of 100 ways to escape I wrote a little while ago. It states the location and how to escape from it, with an illustration. In my list of 100 ways, for each location there were 10 possible ways to escape from a certain location, with the 10th leading you to the next location. E.g. You escape from a desert island by building a huge fire to attract a helicopter, which brings you to a prison. Then 10 ways to escape from the prison ensues.

I have also finished my shoe:

It is an absolutely shocking photograph taken in the middle of the night – I will hopefully upload better photographs when I get around to it (after the assessment). For the other shoe – to make up the pair – I plan on doing a ‘calm water’ themed shoe, as this one features waves crashing and violent seas – it seemed appropriate to create an opposite of waterfalls and fish. However I will try and keep it from becoming too traditionally japanese.

I am planning to start selling shoes like this – once I set up several patterns for people to chose from.

Up in the air

It’s been a while, as usual. I have been working hard on my identity still, while a lot of changes have happened.

We did a large crit the last friday on all our work so far, seeing how we have all progressed and everyone in the class saw each other’s work and commented and such. I WISH we had done this earlier as I received some really important critique about my identity that I had missed. Now the hand in is 2 weeks away and my identity in all truth is a dud now. URgh.

I have progressed however with my acetate letter “d” project, which I mentioned earlier on the blog. I picked the fill I liked the most, and I took all the “d”s and layed them on the wall to put them together to gain some sort of perspective. Where I think this is going is “see the world through a d” several posters put on windows to see the world through a “d”. It should be exciting.
