Brief: Designboom Super Seven
NOT A REAL EVENT
Designboom: web’s first sources for best of architecture, art and design
In an hypothetical world, an event is taking place in December bringing together 7 of the best graphic designers in the world, taking place in CHAPTER Arts Centre in Canton, Cardiff.
The brief is to design the accompanying piece of ephemera that will be used to create an insight into the designers at the event. Show off skills learned throughout the course so far.
Printed ephemera: 16 pages (including cover), A5 portrait, use all provided content – logos, images and text. Choose typeface and develop visual language of the piece (e.g. pattern, texture, etc).
Printed black and white on coloured paper.
Research: into printed ephemera, design conferences/events around the world – what has been done before?
Consider: typeface, grid system, margins, columns, type detailing, hierarchy, path for the eye, point size, etc.
Reflect on work completed in Word, Photo and Image to help produce outcome.
Research into the designers provided: their practice, design festivals and printed ephemera.
