PORTFOLIO: Physical Trial One

Blog, Design Competition, Portfolio Ready, Visual Communication

So my first proper try was to customise a ready made card folder. A bought an B3 folder portfolio from Great Art > >

B3 portfolio

And then two cans of spray paint. One warm yellow and one turquoise. I then masked off the centre binding tape with masking tape and sprayed the front yellow, and the back turquoise. > >

This looks really great from a distance, but is just too spray painty. The back (as you can see in the photos) has those horrible bobbly texture bits which create a different shade, and the front (although dried perfectly) has little marks from dirt affecting the paint.

So unfortunately is just not neat enough for a final piece. Great in theory but spray paint is just not quite right, however well you try and apply it, it always retains its spray painty / graffiti aesthetic, which is not coherent with my work.

So onto the next plan…
