Some pics from a trip I took yesterday to Castlefield/ Deansgate/ MediaCity and it was absolutely freeeezing. Pamona Tram stop proved useful for once. My aim was to get some shots for my album cover and I also took a film SLR which I’m going to collect the prints tomorrow. Ideally I would like to go there at night with a better camera and get some shots with moody lighting but it doesn’t look like the kind of place to go at night with expensive equipment

    An ad I created for WIAW is being featured in The Simple Things magazine, available in supermarkets and WHSmiths! When creating the advert you never know what will be placed next to it so it’s hard to say if it will stand out enough. On this page I can see the Soap Kitchen one is the most shouty. This is something I should consider next time, to maybe use a large image instead of smaller ones. I could also introduce a brighter colour instead of sticking to the baby blue colour of the brand.

    Part 1 - Band

    Feedback from the seminar yesterday was.. My current designs don’t lend themselves to the rock genre enough. Which I do agree with however I didn’t want to go down the cliche route of grunge and lightning. I need to find a middle ground so that the genre can be put across easily on a shop shelf. I’m hoping to do this with photography some how. I also have to consider the mini size which covers appear online and on ipods. 

    Outcomes include Logo, EP cover, Microsite, Merch, Poster, Flyer/ad

    Deadline: 27th Feb

     

    Part 2- Salford Type Foundry

    Me and Megan are going to work together on this one. Basically we want to get STF more interactive. Firstly we need to add a CMS (content management system) so that when we graduate the site can easily be update in a similar way to posting on tumblr by new 3rd years. For that we are hoping to use a service called Perch.

    Other outcomes will include some form of competition/ type fight for which we need promotion material, trophy and mini site. Digital magazine for iPad (content- interviews, how to upload, moving type, useable type?) Promotional Zine. I also like the Bay Horse idea of getting students to design a letter creating an alphabet/ wallpaper like shape christmas. As well as updating existing pages of the site.

    Deadline: 31st March

    Part 3- Undecided 

    Deadline: 7th May

  6. Yesterday I was back at my placement working on my band logo a bit more. I presented a range of logos for feedback and it was decided that the badge style would be best so I don’t loose the shadow when it’s placed on different items. I did a bit of further research on badge styles and the type/ colours. My aim is to have it done by the end of the day

    Just putting together a 1 page microsite for our Pub Quiz DNA event. Using a few placeholder images at the moment. Watch this space

We made a badge x 100+
Thanks to Megan, George, Nathan and Jemma for helping create all of these badges today!
Also I finalised the sticker design which proved awkward with our chosen font due to the k looking like a H!
So now pretty much everything is finished and ready to print :) just have to purchase the sticker paper, get hold of some good quality card, buy some bags for everything to be put in and buy peanuts and cellophane bags.
Also I have collected another £100 of show money today which takes us to £1220 with some still left to pay.
