Print day! So on Thursday we got to practice what we had been taught on Monday, we had all created our images and so got to work, applying the emulsion, exposing the screens, and finally printing, helping each other long the way. Heres some photos…
Monday and the last of our first mini block rotation, this week, Print. In the print studio Danny Flynn takes us all through the procedure of screen printing.
Heres some photos of my personal highlights, unfortunately my phone is terrible so they don’t really do the work justice, but hey, its something
So on Wednesday I finished off taking photos, making my way to Holborn for St George’s Bloomsbury, then walking down to bank for St Mary Woolnoth. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to make it to the last two, St Alphege’s in Greenwich and St Johns Horsleydown(which actually was demolished after being bombed in the Blitz).
Monday started off with Heather giving us a brief, the project was to create a five page spread using typology and text. We then had a lecture about photography and the use of typology, showing photographers that use format well.
In this Applications workshop we looked at InDesign, and how to put together a two page spread for a magazine. From this we would use the posters and copy we had done to create our own spread later.
As a example for the layout we used the Bob Dylan poster by Milton Glaser.
On Monday we started Applications with Ricardo. Starting off with Photoshop. He took us through everything from the basics of creating a new page to the difference between Vector editing and Bitmap.
We also had a look at Adobe Colors for examples of colour palettes and as a good point of reference for creating colour schemes for designs.
Yesterday we visited the V&A in South Kensington. We focused on the design rooms, showing a huge history of design from the 1700s through to 20th century Post-Modernism. Whilst there we were asked to split into groups of two or three and write a small critique on an area or object and the exhibition as a whole. To think about the displays and how they affect the flow and feel of your experience as a visitor.
Heres some photos of our journey through its vastness…
This Critical and Contextual Studies lecture was about The Great Exhibition (The Crystal Palace Exhibition) in 1851, and the social issues surrounding it.
