Couple of weeks ago had to play with the printers in the studio and get creative towards our final poster wordmark project. We had to create 20 or more examples of posters (10 black and white color and 10 with one color more). I had some ideas already because we had to find a piece of text that will suit our psychological state and I found a couple from: Love, Mortality and the Moving Image; Love and Loss: The Roots of Grief and its Complications; A general theory of love / Thomas Lewis, Fari Amini, Richard Lannon; For love and money : new illustration / Liz Farrelly and Olivia Triggs; Love for sale : the words and pictures of Barbara Kruger / text by Kate Linker. I linked the posters to the texts, here is how I played with the printer :
The previous day I saw some 3D art that I wanted to play with, so this is the result.
I wanted to play with the shape like this which I found in Hand job a catalog of type Michael Perry.
I had the idea of love as left out flame just like a left out cigaret on the firs place and a wanted to simplify it.
I found a spray and have been inspired by one of my colleagues’ work to play with drowning colors.Thanks William.
Some people copy their hands, some their ass, I preferred my face. Also you can come with the conclusion that LOVE can hit you as hard as you facepalming a wall.
I wanted to play with strings and I found my lasses pretty cool for the same idea, it gives more playful characteristics of the what you want to show.
In those I just had no idea it was late and fast results were the only conclusion, tho I’m quite satisfied with the results.
I just love the fire and the way it plays so naturally with paper.
A colleague of mine was playing brought up these roses for his work so I had the chance to play with one of them. Thanks Filip I found really interesting a piece of text which was starting lice this: ”
Hood now finds “his skeleton body sinking to this earth, bowed
under the heavy, heavy memories that have always pulled him, he
realizes now, down…” from Northern Love
As I said earlier I love the playfulness of the lases and the idea of the two hearts came by a friend of mine who was just passing by. Big thanks Gilberto.
With this one I wanted to emerged the personages of the text I was showing and putted the butterfly as a way to show the freedom of the will and to experience.
Here are the results:
