FAKERY CONCEPT

02/06

CONCEPT / STRATEGY Utilising the notion of predictions to interpret fakery as a positive thing by engaging with the audience through presenting information in a false context. Pedictions is a calendar series that interprets the definition of fakery by tampering with true events; placing them outside their original context to mislead, trigger nostalgia, and remind people of past events. The calendar series work functionally as a real calendar with correct dates, average temperatures based on past records and predictions on moon statuses. Each prediction is referenced from prominent events in the past, most of which are quite obscure and unknown whereas some are obvious, these have all been credited to the correct date but of a different year. The calendars aim to challenge the viewer’s perception and reaction to these events. The series focus on events, weather, natural hazards, achievements

CONTENT of humankind and often subjects that are considered to be conspiracy theories or of the views of an individual.

from. Therefore information for this series can be argued to be completely false, which forms the basis of the whole concept.

This puts the viewer in control of how they define whether something is fake or not, touching upon the idea of fakery as (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page) being a subjective judgment by the individual. The Predictions Calendar series aims to inspire, inform, remind and confuse the viewer in a friendly way. Some events mentioned are quite controversial which feeds into the reality of the real world. Some people will agree with it, whereas other would refuse to accept it. As a whole, this concept aims to intrigue and provides the user with something different to think about. All content and research has been gathered from the internet, relating to the idea of the internet being a difficult environment to monitor data and information

The predictions are infact real events from the past, relating to that exact date but in a different year, the notion of it simply being titled as Predictions and being placed in a false context plays with the idea of faking/lying as being something that can have a positive or informative impact. All content was sourced from the internet, predominantly from Wikipedia.org as this touches on the subject of fake information and the internet being a platform that is extremely difficult to monitor information, therefore it becomes a difficult place to validate whether something is legitimate or not.

The general design of focused on the layout, method of arranging type and the balance between aesthetics and function of a calendar.

01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12

The approach of the gradient effect emphasizes the hierarchy of the layout whilst adding to the theme of time/ day & night. The colours of each month reflect the season and the part of the season that it fits in, creating a fresh look every month and a dynamic set of calendars when together.

RANGE / DISTRIBUTION

PRODUCTION SPECIFICATION

Complete series of 12 months produced on 6 duplex prints measuring 420mm x594mm. All calendars follow the set design guidelines whilst adopting a separate colour palette dependent on the time of month it is, which in turn reflects the typical seasonal weather.

Document dimensions 420mm x 594mm – 6 sheets

Along with the predictions, there are also other details and statements that challenge the reader to decide whether the statements are true or not, which in turn decides whether it’s fake or not, this toys with the concept of something being fake as dependent on the recipient and whether they agree with it or not.

FAKERY SECONDARY OUTCOME

CONCEPT / DESIGN DIRECTION

SPECIFICATION

PRODUCTION SPECIFICATION

Predictions publication that accompanies the calendars. In comparison to the calendar design, the publication acts as more of a guide and more indepth investigation into the concept, therefore adopts a more ‘manual’ like design to it. The design direction is relatively minimal with it’s emphasis on readability and the function of it as a booklet.

Document dimensions 190mm 274mm

The publication acts as a complimentary copy for the viewer which comes with the calendar series. The approach follows the initial identity of the calendar and the layout in general works well as an archive of all the events but with more details, acting as a reference booklet.

DESIGN CONCEPT IPHONE APP

DESKTOP APPLICATION

iPhone App that utilises the information taken from the printed outcome but delivered in smaller sections. This format of delivery allows for a consistent design appearance whilst adapting to the format of a hand held digital device.

Taking the design concept and guidelines from the printed outcomes, this can easily be applied to a range of digital devices that would be both functional interesting as a visual wallpaper for example.

The App displays daily information, providing the using with something interesting to look at each day that relates to that exact date. z

The same design direction is applied to a digital device, but has altered slightly due to the format and interactive elements of how a screen based device works. Although the layout and design is slightly different, the same consideration to the use of typography, layout and colour palette is consistent throughout.
