353 Ball Framed Prints.

1/1, white ink screen printed on GF Smith paper.

During the second month of intern #2 I was given the brief to design 7 inspirational typographic prints centered around a number of different quotes. It’s been one of my most enjoyable projects to date, and even more importantly, it was a chance to aid an important charity event.

Together, the prints raised over £1000 in a silent auction held at the annual 353 ball.

Hopefully some better shots to follow.

The One Off — Internship

Came to the end of my intern at The One Off on Friday, it’s pretty hard to believe I was there for a full month. Whilst with them I was able to work on a huge range of briefs, involving some big clients such as George, and got to experience the type of work they regularly produce for companies like Primark and Samsung. Alongside this, I aided the company in preparation for the launch of one of their shareholders new restaurants, Amalfi White, situated just down the road from their studio. This involved a massive range of work from food packaging, to building graphics, to menus and in-restaurant artwork. Above are some quick shots from the downstairs area of their (pretty lush) building. Unfortunately, they don’t have any full time places available right now, but said they will get in touch when things become hectic again and they could use an extra designer. Excellent experience, excellent people.

A smaller project which didn’t make it on to my new website. Social Confessions asked a number of people to submit an anonymous post about aspects of society and relationships that aggravates them, causing friction. The colours of the cards represents the level of aggressiveness and frustration in the responses given, becoming more red as they go on.
