My mock up idea, I took inspiration from the printed piece “work hard and be nice to people” by Anthony Burrill, what appealed to me about his design was the softness of the background and the balance of the bold dark text which I have tried to develop in my own style.
format, shape, form. in the past the discipline was boring, the computer then came in and during the (90s) this new machine created a universe of type.

I really enjoyed Barnbrook’s talk, he went through his career to what he is doing presnt. what appealed to me most was his typefaces and one which I thought was ironic was that Disney used the Manson violent type for there snow white film, also his corporate work really stood out: Roppongi Hills in Tokyo, and also Dignity the funaral directors-Black ambulance. overall his career is overwhelming and i thought his talk was great.
A freelance designer, most of his inspiration came from his dad & his box of drawings which he did as a child growing up. music and motion (good things happen to those who wait) Guiness black and white video, black and white because its more atmospheric.
Hellovon at NYC-07 “kicked of animal series from portraits”
What puzzled me about Hellovon was that he had the chance to design album covers, OK they were not the best of bands but hes said no, however he did design for Nike for the world cup advertisements yet (slave labour) hmmm but his response was you have to say no to somethings. He went on to his Olympic pieces which were really good yet the layouts I thought were not the best.
Overall I did enjoy his talk yet I thought some of his work was not the best.
What appealed to me during his lecture was the work he did for the design museum London. The corporate design and clients were really overwhelming and Brook was discussing how he got in touch with director of the Design museum and explained his thoughts and ideas which was to put together a new corporate branding theme for the museum, they were impressed with his ideas and so they went to work and Brook showed sketches and mock ups of how he worked from getting started to designing prototypes, he said that sketches start with a line, he sees what they can be and what they can do, I thought this was a nice method of thinking and a great way for moving forward. He told us there is a story about everything made, he then explained about how he came up with the idea of having the design museum +, the idea is to have the design museum +designers name when there is an exhibition being shown at that time, this really appealed to me.
