Britishness Poster

So I was given a brief about 'Britishness' and what it meant to me. The first part of this was to create a poster, which you may of seen a sneak peek of in a previous post. The design, above, is based around the idea that British people often speak under their breath and say thing's in conversation they don't actually mean, usually so they don't feel uncomfortable.

Oooh...now thats pretty

So I started another blog where I'm introducing the world to pretty, funny, thought provoking or otherwise generally nice art, design, pictures, video and other bits and bobs from everywhere. It's acts as a sort of inspiration space for myself, as well as letting other people see things they may not have seen before. Anyway, if you like, check it out here or by clicking the logo thing above!

Project 'Shop'...

So I visited the 'Shop' that ran from the 30th of April until the 3rd of May, and I must say it was brilliant. I found it such a fun and inventive exhibition, the whole theatrical aspect was excellent and the interactivity with the items was fun, and the fact everything is cardboard is amazing. The idea of taking your average shopping trip and flipping it on its head I think is superb and in this case was pulled of brilliantly. It didn't just attract people from the AUCB either, when I went an elderly man was outside, stood in wonderment and disbelief, and he told me "I've lived in Bournemouth all my life and have never seen anything like it, it's absolutely incredible, I love it!!". Whilst there I managed to pick up some Radiation Juice (to help me glow with energy), some Enlightenment Matches (for complete Enlightenment), Cellu-Lite (to keep me looking beautiful and tastes great on toast) and some Legitchew (great for washing the bulls**t from your mouth), although I really could of done with some Personal Space but they were all sold out!
