Abstract Typography with Nick (Workshop 5 Y2)

Today in the workshop with Nick, it seemed to be different than any of the others as the tables were turned on their sides and all our materials were on the floor. Our task today was to be really free and create some abstract typography. We had two sizes of paper to work with, a craft knife, boards to sit beneath the paper while we used the craft knife and black paint only.


Football Data with Sara (Workshop 5 Y2)

In my workshop with Sara our reference was to focus on data and animating this in a short 10 second animation. We started off by choosing our phrase based on the data from the football museum. I choose the following:

“Women were already playing football before the war. The first recorded home international match between England and Scotland took place in Edinburgh in 1881. / The British Ladies Football Club was founded in 1895.”


Graphic Resistance with Nick – (Workshop 4 Y2)

Today with Nick we started off by looking at the context behind the workshop. Our focus was May 1968 “May68” – “The volatile period of civil unrest in France during May 1968 was punctuated by demonstrations and massive general strikes as well as the occupation of universities and factories across France. In Paris, on the 16 May, students and faculty staff took over the Ecole des Beaux Arts to establish the Atelier Populaire (the Popular Workshop). The organisation went on to produce hundreds of silkscreen posters.”
