Design detour, part two

On September 4th, 2010, at 4.35 in the early morning, we were shaken awake by a terrifying 7.1 magnitude earthquake. It was scary, destructive, unsettling, inconvenient and ongoing. Worse was to come but we didn’t know that at the time. After a while, we were back at D&A, continuing with our studies and doing our best to ignore the cracks.

School project: type as image exercise.

School project: anti-butt-litter billboard. The campaign had to be positive and focus on anti-not-thinking rather than anti-smoking. The illustration shows Christchurch’s Anglican Cathedral in happier times (before earthquakes damaged it beyond repair).

Inspired by an illustration by Tatiana Arocha.

Another couple of hand-drawn patterns (a dozen different patterns in total — all A3, drawn using pigment liner pens). Earlier this year, for photography, we were asked to make use of some of our patterns…

These made it into last Friday’s D&A graduate exhibition. One day soon, I would love to try my hand at textile design.
