Mondays work

I've been messing around with old photographs, all of these began as black+white/greyscale images. I've put colour back into the pictures, which I think gives them a new life. I like the flat quality of the colour, similarly to hand tinted victorian photography. Not finished but a good start i think!

Scanning Times

So my sisters gone over to France for a few days (alright for some!) So I've robbed her scanner, hoping to re-work some found imagery, and practice with digital collage. I love love love these posters, advertising perfume I think. I've had them for a couple of years now, and I won't be touching these as they are practically perfect!! Classic design + colour choices Circa 1950 I like them Very much!

Mini Project - Branding for the Manchester International Festival

I have challenged my self to re-brand the Manchester International Festival 2011. Before the Easter holls my tutor group suggested I try to think of an alternate look for this years festival. The general consensus in our group, was that the 2009 festival branding really worked, but this year they had recycled the 'tree' theme from '09 and the whole look was quite poor. I have tried to give the festival branding a fresh/young/approachable feel, which are attributes I think are missing from the chosen look this year. Just having a go with typography and layout really, two things I still haven't mastered!

Latest Science Inspired Collage work

Some A3/A3/A6 print outs of my latest collages, printed on 200gsm Cartridge, think they would be enhanced on a better or more suitable stock, will keep my eyes peeled over the next few weeks. Will be using these images for sci fi book covers, have one almost done, but will post when I have the collection finished.
