Exhibition

BCU Visual Communication Graduation Show 2015

So, finally it's time for our grad show! We are given a week to plan and build up a plywood display board for the show. I put up my best project of the year: M+ museum identity on the top of the board. The poster is bold and works really well to catch attention. The M+ museum project is part of my negotiated study, which is supporting my dissertation - Creating Trusted Brands in the Arts and Culture sector

A reflective visual journal, brand style guideline, dissertation and M+ 3D model are placed on the shelf or front table. Visitors can have a deeper understanding of my work through my research, sketches, development and final outcomes.

To look at other projects, you can check out the portfolio book. You can also visit my site by scanning the QR code next to it. Don't forget to take a business card before you go! You would love to contact me afterwards!

Talk

Abram Games: Life and Work

Today Abram Games' youngest daughter Naomi Games came to our uni to talk about his father's work. Abram Games is the UK’s most accomplished graphic designer of the 20th century. He mainly worked as a poster designer which was highly demanded in the 20th century as there's no television at that time. He was master in using air brushes for colouring his work, but he changed his style into solid paint after colour photography appeared.

Games' poster designs are simple but carrying massive messages. I personally like the 'newspaper man' for the The Financial Times advertisement and the anti-smoke poster design which cleverly carrying the message with no text.

Games' work was really impressive, and everyone can feel his passion on design in his whole life. Games told his daughter to remember 3Cs when doing design, which are couragecurious andconcentrate.

I enjoy today's talk very much and I love the stories of Games' family.
