NMP - Short Film
So after watching the short film ‘Her - love in the modern age’ I think creating a similar piece would be perfect for this brief. To create a short piece to change peoples preconceptions about what Poetry is, who reads it and enjoys it. The premise is I would get a collection of friends with different interests, jobs, styles and ask them to read a poem that holds some personal significance to them, or that they just love to read. This would be a great way to introduce the brand to an online, young, social networking audience.

NMP - Poster Devlopment

Decided to incorporate some of the best quotes I found during my research about Poetry by some of the biggest names in literature. The design is contemporary, clean, minimal. The aesthetic deliberately attempts to separate itself from stereotypical views of poetry and what it is, what it looks likes. I think the 4 work really well as a set and would be a could starting point for the campaign. Although the colours work well individually I fell as though they clash when placed together as part of a series. Will work on developing a complete colour palette for the campaign as a whole.

Rebranding an iconic and historical institution is perhaps a dream job for any creative, especially after seeing Sagmeister & Walsh’s brand new execution for the New York Jewish Museum. Based on the Star of David, the entire system is drawn on a grid, from the word and logo mark, to dozens of patterns, icons, typography, and illustrations.
From Sagmeister & Walsh:Our goal in rebranding the museum was to connect the historic and contemporary, and engage multiple visitor generations. The new identity system we created is founded on ‘sacred geometry’, an ancient geometric system from which the Star of David was formed. The entire branding system is drawn on this grid, from the word and logo mark, to dozens of patterns, icons, typography, and illustrations. To address photography as part of the system, we built a processing app that turns a photo or webcam stream into a Jewish Museum illustration.
Using these systems, we designed stationary, packaging, advertising campaigns, promotional materials, and an immersive new website which will launch in June. This system invites surprise and flexibility across all media, while always unified in visual language.

'Born Into This'

Born like this
Into this
As the chalk faces smile
As Mrs. Death laughs
As the elevators break
As political landscapes dissolve
As the supermarket bag boy holds a college degree
As the oily fish spit out their oily prey
As the sun is masked
We are
Born like this
Into this
Into these carefully mad wars
Into the sight of broken factory windows of emptiness
Into bars where people no longer speak to each other
Into fist fights that end as shootings and knifings
Born into this
Into hospitals which are so expensive that it’s cheaper to die
Into lawyers who charge so much it’s cheaper to plead guilty
Into a country where the jails are full and the madhouses closed
Into a place where the masses elevate fools into rich heroes
Born into this
Walking and living through this
Dying because of this
Muted because of this
Castrated
Debauched
Disinherited
Because of this
Fooled by this
Used by this
Pissed on by this
Made crazy and sick by this
Made violent
Made inhuman
By this
The heart is blackened
The fingers reach for the throat
The gun
The knife
The bomb
The fingers reach toward an unresponsive god
The fingers reach for the bottle
The pill
The powder
We are born into this sorrowful deadliness
We are born into a government 60 years in debt
That soon will be unable to even pay the interest on that debt
And the banks will burn
Money will be useless
There will be open and unpunished murder in the streets
It will be guns and roving mobs
Land will be useless
Food will become a diminishing return
Nuclear power will be taken over by the many
Explosions will continually shake the earth
Radiated robot men will stalk each other
The rich and the chosen will watch from space platforms
Dante’s Inferno will be made to look like a children’s playground
The sun will not be seen and it will always be night
Trees will die
All vegetation will die
Radiated men will eat the flesh of radiated men
The sea will be poisoned
The lakes and rivers will vanish
Rain will be the new gold
The rotting bodies of men and animals will stink in the dark wind
The last few survivors will be overtaken by new and hideous diseases
And the space platforms will be destroyed by attrition
The petering out of supplies
The natural effect of general decay
And there will be the most beautiful silence never heard
Born out of that.
The sun still hidden there
Awaiting the next chapter.

Clip from the film ‘Howl’ of James Franco’s Allen Ginsberg talking about how to write poetry. His musings convey the personal aspect of poetry, in particular in its modern form how the personal interactions and events in our lives are the best basis to create poetry and find your own unique voice. This is something I want to convey with my NMP. People need to realise how personal and enlightening poetry can be. It is not ‘high art’ that should only be read in classrooms, its expressive, entertaining, beautiful. It is something that should be embraced by the masses, or at least acknowledging as something that anyone, no matter their background or education can pick up and enjoy.

Print Final Piece Evaluation - PC3
I have thoroughly enjoyed learning new and different printing methods, but I think above all else I enjoyed filling my sketchbook. Drawing has always been a huge passion of mine, but for one reason or another it has slowly diminished, not in terms of passion or enjoyment but just taking the time to do it. So getting myself back into the routine of drawing and sketching was hugely gratifying and has allowed me to develop my skills and individual style massively. In terms of final output however I believe my time management has let me down, with better organisation I believe I could have created a final outcome of a much higher standard. Especially when it came to screen printing, if I had given myself more time I believe this particular method would of been the perfect platform to translate some of my illustrations to grander dimensions and outcomes. I believe the overall theme and aesthetic I have created does work on an aesthetic level and above all else I am happy to know that I can take the skills I have learnt throughout this year to help me expand my portfolio and show that it is not just digital design and editorial design that I am passionate about or capable of creating.
