Range/ Promotion/ Stationary
Once I have my logo designed I will be able to apply it across the range. I will need to thing about how to use different colours, inverted etc like above to make it more visually interesting.
I like the creativity of the example above, the elements can be connected to make characters. I like this idea but I don't think it represents me but its different to the standard self promotion pack.
I love the minimal approach of these two examples. I think this style best communicates me and my interests within design but I want to include pastel colours with the stock.
I like in the example above how the letters have the usually clear panel filled with colour. I thin I am going to make my own letters using the pastel stock for colour.
I like the use of symbols to illustrate my skills, strengths and expertise within design. I would like to design something similar for my creative cv.
The example above is something like what I have in mind. I want it to be simple and easy to understand. I want to use stock and one colour ink so it the simplicity will help with this.
This cv has been made into a poster style design. I like this idea as it can be folded down to go into a pack which I can make a range a posters to go with.
The example above make good use of one colour plus stock. They all have the contact info on the back with the design on the front. I might have a bit of both on mine to make it clear what they are for and make them more personal.
I like the use of type on these cards with the soothing stock colours. I have started to appreciate type much more over the last year so I might focus on it in my designs.
I could make a folder or use clips of some sort to bind the work together. I might try using the brown paper with bright colour but I'm not sure yet.
I like blues and greens so I think I want to include them some how in my work.
The examples above use geometric patterns, I think something like this could work well with black ink on pastel stock.
I really like these two images, there have modernistic characteristics that I like using a a five column grid for the type, I think I want my design to be structured and stick to a grid throughout for consistency.
A sketch book could be a nice thing to include in the stationary range. I like the wire bounding as well, something to consider when applying my brand across the range.
I like the idea of having pages at different sizes, this could be a good way to display some of my own work.
I could make info graphics to show my interests and ideas like above. These could be smaller and in different coloured stock.
This example is the kind of style I am wanting to achieve. I like the use of different stocks with one colour. I want to use black ink in my designs so they will need to be simple with impact.
I think some promotional posters to showcase my style and ideas would be a good thing to include.
I really like the idea of transferring the pastel colours to a digital space for my website design. The colours could be used to organise the different fields of design I have done work for.
Illustrations could be a nice way of breaking up the pack and letting the eye rest with the neagativev space.
I think the metal binding could look good with the colours and quick and simple to construct. I want my pack to be really simple in design and production to reflect me and my ideas of design. I think design should varies on the purpose but in general, stripping things back to the essentials make a well balanced, lasting designs.
