Taxonomy


Taxonomy Rationale After some initial confusion with my taxonomy brief I set out to portray the varied design styles of vinyl records using an information graphics stand point but not going in to as much detail as using in depth data etc, simply providing information on the band / artist and tracks on the chosen vinyl record for example. My initial idea using this basis was to create a series of posters using the vinyl in a montaged style, there for in a way creating a new record cover design using multiple existing covers, then coming up with ways to provide information to each section in an original, visually pleasing way. After producing a number of informative posters using the montaged vinyl designs I decided to try and take the same idea in to Adobe After Effects as we had only been introduced to After Effects and the animation side of graphic design this year, I was very interested in trying out the software for the first time to see what results could be achieved. I thought my animation would work great as part of an exhibition on vinyl records, playing on big screens while the physical vinyl records were present to view. After my formative assessment it was apparent that I needed to focus more on my use of typography that is why I returned to the poster format for my other final designs, which is something I am glad I did as I really enjoyed researching and producing the poster designs in the vain of Josef Muller Brockmann and Wim Crouwel.


Initial Infographic Based Idea Using Montaged Vinyl Theme

Refering back to the album cover book I used as research (seen in my develipment files) I thought I could some how display my collection of vinyl record photographs alongside the information, like in the book, such as time period recorded, artist, genre, record label and I could even include information such as album length etc. This could all be displayed in an infographic style as I really like the way the stylised imagery works alongside information found on infographics.

Vinyl Records Through the Years


After Effects Video Animations See Blog & Youtube Videos http://jordangillespi.wordpress.com/ As part of my final design ideas to display my taxonomy of collected vinyl records I decided to experiment creating animations in Adobe After Effects. As I am new to the program this year I only know what has been taught to me in the Monday session but I like the idea of taking a static graphic design piece, which I would normally produce, and being able to animate it as this opens up whole new possibilities which I have tried to demonstrate in my animations.


Series Of Posters Typography Focus After the completion of my infographic style designs and playing around with animating the montaged vinyl designs I decided to focus more on the use of typography which led me to looking in to Wim Crouwel and Josef Muller’s use of typography, especially in the poster format. Josef Muller Brockmann and Wim Crouwel were pioneers of using a ‘grid system’ in there poster designs which made for clean and organised designs which were easily absorbed but at the same time were quite striking due to the use of colour and typography. I decided to experiment in a similar style to Brockmann and Crouwel, using colour and type to accompany my vinyl montages.

Data Visualisation


Data Visualisation Rationale With my data visualisation project I wanted to produce a piece of design that was not only original but, after collecting data from my home town of Barnsley, something that had strong ties in to certain aspects of what was once a working class, industrial town. I wanted take aspects of map design and develop the standard aspects such as a map key etc in to something new and original, even changing the standard design of a route on a map in to something more visually attractive and a little abstract. I wanted use colour as a way to visualise the data and get the information across which I feel I achieved to a certain extent but the data could have maybe been a little clearer as the colours used for the visualisation of the amenities may have been a bit too similar which made it hard to notice a variation. The strongest point of my designs I feel is the visuals designs themselves, such as the idea of using geometric coal shapes to plot the route and the simple pictogram style mineshaft logo design. With this project I found that visualising data in an original, visually pleasing way is quite a hard task but I enjoyed the challenge it produced.


Data Visualised Coal Routes

With my coal route designs I needed to come up with a way to visualise the data of the number of amenities along each route. As I had mentioned I wanted to use colour, similar to a coloured key, but not in the generic format found on most maps. I developed the coal routes so that each different amenity had its own colour, then depending on the number of that type of amenity on each route, the coal piece would be a different size with a rating out of four and the smallest sized coal piece being the standard route. For example if there were eight pubs on a route which was the highest number, out of any amenity, along that route then it would get a rating of four and have the largest sized coal piece. This allows for the data to be visualised in an original way.

This final layout is the most simple and could be printed on a small piece of A4 piece of paper or card. This design cuts out the need for any fold out sections by simply being printed double sided on to a piece of paper or card and folded in half, then half again.

Competition (BEAR) Rationale With the YCN Bear brief I chose to produce multiple designs that would appeal to children but also, as the brief stated, be educational. I chose to carry on the theme of making the letter the hero of each pack design so after some initial research I decided on using animals as the main focus point of my designs along with the weird and wonderful facts that go with animals as being the educational part. I decided on a quite simple hand drawn illustrated style for my animal designs as I thought young children would be able to relate to the ‘scrappy’ illustrative style over a highly detailed style as they themselves would draw in the same infantile way. I wanted the drawings to also be highly colourful and not realistic in the way of colouring the animals true to how they are in real life as I believe the young children would find the colourful illustrations more interesting than say brown and black colours, also the bright colours would really make the illustrations stand out from the cereal box, catching the eye of the young children. I also decided to develop the way in which the illustrations were presented on the box, experimenting with a spiral / kaleidoscope like design which then lead on to my final design idea which added a level of interactivity to the cereal box, expanding the idea of breakfast time past just being a meal time in the morning. The spiral designs lead on to the idea of having the children cut them out from the box and create spinning tops by simply piercing the centre with a tooth pick or the equivalent. I think the strongest point of this project was the illustrated designs and the way the colours and kaleidoscope like designs created great looking patterns.


Spinning Top Designs

After I had started designing the initial layouts using the kaleidoscope like illustrations I got the idea to make the packaging even more interactive by turning the spiral illustrations in to spinning tops. This idea would add a further level of interaction and fun to breakfast time and also extend the theme of learning while having fun beyond breakfast time as the spinning tops could be saved to play with at anytime.


Spinning Top Mock Ups

Following on from my spinning top designs and the changes to layout of the back of the pack, I decided to actually make some rough mock ups of the spinning tops. I used a thick card to mimic that of a cereal box which the design was printed, the card also had to be thick as if it was too thin the spinner would not have sufficient weight to spin. I wanted to use an everyday item or something that was easily purchasable and cheap for children to ask their parents to buy so I decided on using a kebab skewer.
