These aren’t postcards there posters but I can use the same processes, I chosen to look at these designs because of the overall feel, I personally really like the mix matched collage background with a Strong, bold printed message or design, This makes for a unquie design because every piece will be different if I was to create more than one, If I perticually like a Collage I could always scan it in and develop it on a computer.
When looking at this design I really want to create my own collages, Back when I was doing my Art A Level’s I did a whole personal project using collages in my own work to create a background, ( giving the canvas/piece an artificial history). This design works for me because of the strong printed black design and this is something that I want to use in my own postcard design, because of time restrictions with work and other commitments I wouldn’t be able to do printing in this project but I could possibly in later ones, for this project I am just going to but creating my designs on a computer and printing them out normally.
Even though there’s not much going on colour wise for both designs I think that the way the black has been printed out has been though about a lot, to create shading or less of the black faint lines have been made on the ares were shading is wanted, this in turn puts less black on the final price creating a subtle area.
This is a screen shot I took from a video on how “Shepard Fairey” creates he’s work and this is really good inspiration for my own work.
These design is amazing, the way all of the usual negative space has been transformed into an eye-popping design that attracts the viewer to look about at each element of the design, I really wish that I could use printing in this design but I can’t so… end of, but the wy it changes a design is really fascinating, I Know need to come up with some design using what I have learnt from my ” Shepard Fairey” research.
