World Of Tanks – Final Designs

So here is the final design for my World of Tanks website. My presentation went down well, and I actually won the work experienced offered by the agency. I developed my web design skills throughout the week long project, following a strong design process which came to a good outcome. I liked how the design was interactive, and quite still and boring. I wanted to engage the audience, energising and exciting them about the game.

KSA – Final Designs

I wanted to take the opportunity¬†to reflect on the project and display my final designs. I felt like I fulfilled the brief, showing subtle signifiers to attract the target audience. I tried to add dynamism by adding a banner shape, with a “back to school” feel about it. To tie eveything together, I used two colours in red and blue, “quintessentially British”. I produced guidelines for the client, showing colour values and typefaces used.

Overall I would say the project was a success. I feel that I’ve developed further skills in connotation and denotation, with focus on semiotics and understanding the contrast in target audiences.

Summer Brief – Final Designs

My idea was to create a match day program for a local football team. I created biographies of the players, and showed their journey to the final. I also re-designed their logo, to give it a more contemporary feel.

I also created two more spreads, just from events that I had been to and drew inspiration from. One being the track cycling event at the Olympic Park, London. The other was a day out at the British GT Championships, where I was able to get close enough to the young stars in their cars, and capture some great shots.

Conclusion

I’ve enjoyed this brief. It’s enabled me to use my creativity and work in areas that I enjoy, for example, sport. This project kept my mind active during the summer period, and I was able to play around with techniques and ideas, taking tutorials in my spare time to strengthen my design capabilities.

Chelsea Flower Show

I had the opportunity to work with a clients proposal for product of the year at Chelsea Flower Show this year. This involved me taking studio product shots and envolved in the design process for the application. The Leda and the Swan design stems from a Greek Myth. Sleek curves and dynamic design tell the story and is perfect for any size garden, big or small. Chilstone have sold two already for charity, raising a few thousand so far. Coverage of the show will be broadcast nationwide, so hopefully it will be on tv screens soon!
