Collections: Print for exhibition

I decided that I would use some of the illustrations from my zine to create an A3 print to hang in the exhibition.

I have created it in the style of an comic book title page as I think that a comic would probably be the fitting media for my character, and it shows my illustration and character in context.

Hay Festival: Final Banner design corrections

After sending my banner design to the hay festival for approval they requested I make a few alterations to the design to make it more suited to the hay festival’s audience.

The alterations that have been made are:

  • Bringing the left most figure in front of the tree so the viewer can see the full design at least once
  • Removing the drop shadow to neaten up the image
  • and overall increasing brightness of the image, making the colours more friendly and appealing.

I agree that this does improve the image and am glad to have received this feedback.

I have added cut lines to this image using the information from the workshop we had on preparing for print and have divided up the image into sections to make it more manageable to hang.

Collections: Images for exhibition zine

Using designs and ideas from my sketchbook and other ideas I have had, below is my final images for my zine for the collections exhibition.

I have yet to decide on the final text for each page and on the final layout.

I have decided that I would like my zine to be in the style of an artbook, showing my character in varying poses and positions; as well as additional characters and scenarios.

I want to keep the overall feel of the zine lighthearted and humorous as well.

Hay Festival: Children’s interactive task

I have drawn out the line-art for the final image and am proposing its use as a guide for the interactive section of my design.

Leaving the image just as line-art also means that children will be able to not only use the larger banner image to complete the task, but will also be able to colour in the the image themselves.

Below is the coloured locations of the things to find.

Hay Festival: Final Image

My final image for my hay festival using scan wallpaper textures and Photoshop.

I have reduced the number of golden apples as I felt the image was getting rather crowded.

I like the textures, however on a small scale they make the image seem somewhat overly busy. I feel that when it is scaled to twice the size (1m x 3m) it will feel less crowded and more spaced out.

I my planning drawings I have had a line around the image that held the forms together better however I was unable to find a line quality within Photoshop that suited the image. I have instead added a drop shadow to what will become the individual vinyls, as this helps to add the definition that was lost from the lack of line and has given the added effect of it being created with paper-cut.

Hay festival: Proposed Idea

I have digitally created an idea about how the final banner may look. As this is a sample, the final image is likely to be longer and feature trees in varying densities.

Above are 2 variations on how the imagery may look. I have included some potential textures and tree positioning and included the idea of children trying to find red riding hood amongst the trees. In future versions I may also include other things for them to find for instance the wolf, other animals and perhaps fruits of different colours.
