BA (Hons.) GRAPHIC DESIGN
Final Major Project
The Brief Design a range of poster prints based on the concept of Decades. The poster prints will be sold during Market Week at Leeds College of Art Pop up Shop
Background Once again the college is offering all students another opportunity to sell some of your work to the general public in partnership with Leeds’ most successful arts organisations.
Concept/Proposition Decades – Design and print a series of poster prints around the concept of Decades. The prints will portray a sense of the nostalgia and popular fads of that particular decade.
Leeds College of Art, in partnership with Artsmix* (www.artsmix.co.uk) is proud to announce the launch of ‘MADE’ a pop-up shop of affordable work to be held in the glass foyer of the Blenheim Walk Building on 17-19th May.
Considerations How will they be printed? What will they be printed on? What is the focus? Type, image, or both? How will you sell them? Will they be packaged? How will they be displayed?
Mandatory Requirements The brief is fairly open but you must stick to dimensions of a conventional A2 poster print.
Target Audience Attendees of the pop-up shop. Typically students and groups with an interest in art and design.
Tone of Voice Informal, Informative, nostalgic
A series of three prints portraying the 70’s 80’s and 90’s.
