Design competition: Project 2 Work Placement, New idea

I had been thinking about different ways to take the cover and what I wanted to convey in it and I thought about how the Russian Revolution had fascinated me and I decided to try and convey the rebellion aspects of the book through the cover. This was when I went back to my research to look at a different method of conveying this message and thought to try and emulate the style of Lissitzkys Red Wedge and use basic forms as a method of depicting this rebellion in the book.

Impression Studio: Anthology Project, Researching and Testing Distorted Typography 2

I also looked into the artist and typographer Gemma Obrien who makes alot of large scale typographic pieces with swirling patterns around and within the letter forms in a way that appears to form them.

Work by Gemma Obrien

I really like her work and wanted to try and create some pattern like hers but couldn’t really see how they could be used in my work.

At this point in the project each studio member was able to have an individual crit with our tutors who recommended looking at art from the psychedelic movement of the 60/70’s era. I looked into a few different artists including Rick Griffin, Victor Moscoso and Wes Wilson who’s work also ended up being very influential on my final design.
