HYDE MANIFESTO

For my first University project we was given the brief “TRANSLATE”. This could be for a place, a celebration, a campaign, anything that could communicate a place, persons or companies manifesto. I found it really hard to think of who my Manifesto could be for as I was unsure as to what my own was. I decided to do the brief for Hyde which is a local community near by where I live. I decided to create a piece of design to make people want to come back to Hyde as it was once well known for the markets. I decided to create the campaign that Hyde was bringing the well known markets back and used the following manifesto: FREE PARKING FOR ALL, COMMIT TO THE MARKET, LESS SURFING MORE SOCIALISING and FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT {MORE THAN} FACEBOOK.

Design Print Week Manchester

I recently visited the Design Print Event in Manchester where several artists, illustrators, graphic designers and others was exhibiting their work which could be looked at and purchased. I really loved this as it showed designers like myself putting their work out in the real world and trying to be successful.

I really loved the work which I have attached a picture of above as it’s really colourful, fun and uses a range of different techniques including screen printing. I can see this work uses a lot of geometric shapes and vivid colours. This is something I have lately been really inspired by and have been trying to incorporate into my work moving forward.

Below shows a piece where it was plasterboard on the outside with little holes dotted around. On the outside it looked basic and boring. However when I looked inside the holes, big letters in different typography and colours was inside lit up in neon lighting. I felt like this was really interesting as from the outside it looked like nothing but from the inside it had a complete different meaning. I can see from what I have learnt in my lectures that this design has followed the idea about less is more and modernism.
