DUNDEE TODAY – URBAN BANK THE IDEA

I include a draft version of  an adapted poster template taken from  INDESIGN software. I have altered to include promotional information  relating to my proposition for the MDes Research Project.

I am not a graphic designer and I do tend to fill the image space surfaces with TOO MUCH information , but I did like the overall look of this template as it could reflect any town.   It has an image of an aeroplane trailing a promotional flying banner, which I have seen many times in France, when events and festivals or fetes are being advertised. I like this format as it really gets noticed by large groups of people over a wide geographical area.  I can imagine that this may catch the eye and generate interest in an event promotion like URBAN BANK.

I need to amend the text and ideally I would require to design my own visual format to reflect my style and the project promotion.

prototype display space for work in progress

LEVEL 5  in the Matthew Building at DJCAD is the venue for the MDES MASTERS of DESIGN EXHIBITION in AUGUST 2011.

The current full time students have developed prototypes of their final exhibition and as one of 3 part-time students, I have been asked to display the progress and context  for my design research project in a space approximately 1.7metres wide by 2.34metres high and no more than 1.8m deep.

We all had to submit quick and immediate ‘FAIL FAST ‘ sketch ideas for our initial thumbnails, which I had to develop in conjunction with the 2 other students.

Here are the sketches and photos of the allocate wall space on Level 5.
