The Art of Conversation


Level 3 Graphic Communication Diploma Colchester School Of Art


The Art of Conversation As part of their final major projects, students of the Colchester School of Art, were asked to develop a concept that visually represented the idea and motivation behind conversations; both socially and culturally. The ‘Art of Conversation’ explores the visual relationship between varying modes of communication and what the process of this means to a graphic designer. Students needed to develop these ideas using a preferred specialist approach in a unique and engaging fashion, drawing on the skills they had experienced in their first year of study.

It’s to show how we hide our emotions behind a smile or the words ‘I’m fine’ when we say we’re fine but we know we’re really not.

ARE YOU HUNGRY? Dannielle Blackwood www.behance.net/DanniiBlackwood

I have visually shown a topic that is commonly mentioned in conversation. I chose to use simple animal characters to represent that it’s not just humans that communicate.


IT’S NOT WHAT YOU SAY, IT’S HOW YOU SAY IT. Samantha Elston www.behance.net/samelston

On social network sites all that comes up is a speech bubble it doesn’t show the person’s facial expression, which is an important way of delivering the message, and how people react to it.

To communicate how we give all our time to technology and how we almost worship it.

Words are a big part of a conversation; by doing a typographic piece combined with illustration I was able to highlight the importance and relevance of the famous quote.
