The Brief Create a Graphic Design collective with seven other members. Kirsty Alderson Geek Table OUGD303 Design Practice Brief Seven

Concept The concept for the collective comes from the idea that each of us wanted the opportunity to just design elements we enjoy and not have a purpose behind them as such. This was set to be a play brief but with outcomes that could possibly promote us in the end. Each of us has a unique skill so week on week we set a brief in order for us to be able to showcase this skill and then came back together to show what we had produced.

Brief three: Guilty pleasure Create a piece of Graphic Design which shows what our guilty pleasure is. The subject does not have to be Graphic Design related but can have some link.

Kirsty Alderson Geek Table OUGD303 Design Practice Brief Seven

Publication Claudia and Baljeet took on the task of designing a publication for the Geek Table that could be sent to professionals as a way of promoting ourselves and a nice piece of print to summarise this brief. The publication has a section for each of us and we have chosen one of our favourite Geek Table pieces as well as explaining our induvidual geeky skills and including our contact details.

Final prints I chose to do four postcard prints for my final Geek Table pieces because this brief was partly to do with self promotion so I thought I could use these to promote my geeky skill and work. The pieces were also designed quite small by hand so it made more sense to have them on this scale so any detail could be seen. I’ve printed them on to watercolour card to add to the handmade aspect as I feel the texture of the stock does this well.
