Landscape Research Group: Brief One
Now that I have finished my first year at University, I still want to keep busy over summer and whilst working I intend on assigning myself personal graphic design projects. This will hopefully gain me experience and widen my skills and knowledge.
I was informed about a project called the Landscape Research Group, in which consists of 5 mini briefs open to interpretation supported with research. My application for this project was successful and I have recently been assigned my first brief.
Brief Name: Image
Please source an image of the following 10 things:
- a sandwich
- a animal
- a fold
I should spend at least 2 hours on this project, and email my final singular or Indesign file, 10 images to the project leader. I should also provide text stating how I sourced each image and how I feel it is relevant.
I had no idea what the first brief would be and my initial reaction was surprise. The brief seems fairly straightforward, however I was expecting something more specific and commercial. Yet, I look forward to beginning. The brief is intentionally open for interpretation so my approach is one of many. The 10 subjects are very diverse, therefore it will be a challenge to create the 10 images within the same style. As I am going on holiday in three days, I need to choose something fairly quick and simple, especially as it is only the first brief.
I Intend to blog my progress throughout all briefs within this project.
