Design

So my 10 week ‘introduction to graphic design’ course is over. One of the last projects was to design a book cover (we had a choice of 4 fictional titles: Tall stories, Alone, Green Room or Digital Dystopia)

My mind is buzzing with ideas and inspirations recently. It feels like I’m finally shaking off the university brain-numbness. I’m sad to say this but it uni did give me brain-numbness.
I’m currently in love with old magazines and their use of black and white images and blocks of colour. I’m in love with print (lino, screenprint, lithography) and typography (how could I go through 2 years of college and 3 years of uni without recognising the beauty and potential of typography, HOW?!).

I would like to give this blog a new life, a real blog-life, but I am not a blogger. It’s always been more of a personal journal and perhaps it will just stay this way.

About salmons and faith… Well I thinks it’s pretty self explanatory.
Ciao!

Last week (or was it 2 weeks ago already?) I visited the Design Museum to see John Pawson’s Plain Space. The exhibition is located on the second floor of the DM and is made up from photographs, small-scale models of buildings designed by him, objects, drawings and materials that he tends to use for his projects. Pawson’s style is characterised by a modern look and a minimalistic approach, yet his designs come across as warm and not cold. Lovely!

Ps. Going to Design Museum before the 6th of March 2011, you get access to 2 exhibitions paying only for one. The other exhibition at this moment is the Drawing Fashion (link) which is very much worth recommending too. See it if you can!
