Cultural Type Posters
These type posters were to represent the colliding of cultures that happens when British people travel and encourages them to embrace local customs. It focuses on India, Korea and Arabian cultures I used quotes from classic British TV programmes where the main characters talk ignorantly about that area. I then and contrasted it with a pattern made using only punctuation to represent each culture. These delicate patterns stand for the small details that can be all to easily missed when Brits go abroad and expect a home from home. I then acid etched the text patterns and embossed them.
I am a Graphic Designer from Scotland who is currently working at the Madrid based design company Barfutura. I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in June 2011 and whilst studying I worked on many live projects including a making a music video for Polydor Records and hosting a the Scottish Premier of Died Young Styed Pretty; a film about rock posters. I am hard working and brilliant at multi tasking. I like trying new possibilities and creating up to the minute design. I have a great attention to detail and like nothing more than than a challenge whether it be working with typography on a logo design or doing a page layout for a 200 page hardback book. I want to make work that really matters to people so this is an ideal platform. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a project.
