Reportage Photography, Writing, Independent Magazines and Graphic Design

Blog

Expect lots of wordy things - independent magazines primarily - with plenty of reportage photography and great bits of design. There will also be occasional pieces of written reportage stories. It all comes down to time.

Posters

With the A-Level specifications changing next academic year, a lot of work is having to be done to prepare for the new, old fashioned, linear two year courses, which start in September. For reasons which are threefold, I designed these A3 posters for the department's classroom walls;

1. They are useful to show the students just how much work needs to be done over the coming two years.

2. They are useful as a constant reminder to ourselves about how much work needs to be done over the coming two years.

3. I like the colours and they make my wall display a touch more interesting.

The 'Literature' poster uses classic red, white and blue from the French tricolour, for no other reason than personal preference, and the 'Lang & Lit' poster is supposed to be a nod Peter Saville and the guys behind the TV series 'Utopia'. The main headings and introductions employ Avenir's Black and Book and the explanation notes are in Helvetica Neue Bold.
