Medium is the Message
Typography surrounds us in Western daily life. It enables, guides and directs us through physical space with signage, time-tables, commercial agreements, advertisements, promotion, tokens of value and receipts and takes us on intellectual journeys through literature and poetry. This project requires you to re-evaluate your approach to mark-making and consider inventive creative methods in the production of experimental typography.
Iâ€™ll Look into That
This project asks you to explore how to document, record and importantly visually communicate a journey. Try to consider the two key issues of narrative and sequence within your work. The project is as much about them as it is the individual theme of the journey.

That is the Question
The Royal Shakespeare Company had been given a years residency at your local theatre. They have interpreted one of his plays in an alternative manner to try and attract a new audience to enjoy shakespeare.

They have specifically asked you because they want a fresh inventive and innovative designer to excite the public about the event.
Emotions is a central state connected with communicating and expressing feelings, thoughts and behaviour. For this project i will investigate how important and essential emotions are, and how our emotions are associated with so many aspects of our lives. I will achieve this by researching in depth about this topic and produce outcomes using relevant techniques and methods to portray my chosen subject matter. This topic comes under the areas of “social” and “personal” as it consists of enviromental issues to do with work for example as well as personal issues such as health.
