Brief/Session/Document Title: Illustrative book

Brief

Design an illustrative book to promote a fellow creative.

Background / Considerations

Typically when a creative wants to promote themselves they use their own work and although personality comes through this there is still a lot to be learnt about them. How can you visually communicate a persons interests and inspiration instead of creating the typical fact book? Could it be pocket sized so that it can be displayed at an exhibition the creative may be part of? or does it need to be larger to communicate more successful if it is going to consist of visuals? Does the style of illustration need to be speciďŹ c to link to the creative too? Will a large colour pallet prove more visually interesting or going for a minimalistic one communicate more successfully? The creative needs to be part of the design process so the end product is something they feel works and best communicates them.

Brief/Session/Document Title: 2016 Olympics

Brief Design the logo for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Background / Considerations

I wasnʼt particularly a massive fan of the 2012 Olympic logo so thought I would take the opportunity to have a go at designing the logo for the next Olympics. Rio is well known for its bright, bold and beautiful carnival celebration parades so this is definitely something to focus on when consider colour and style for the new logo. How can personality shine through this logo and reflect the values and positiveness of Rio? It needs to be understood worldwide so this is something to consider within the design. It also needs to be easily recognized and work across a vast range of products that come with the olympics for example, the clothing the volunteers wear and any merchandise that is likely to be sold.
