Visiting the final years summer show was really insightful, the way the space had been used was really interesting and complimented the contemporary work wonderfully. I really enjoyed seeing the variety of work on show and the range of projects /styles/ outcomes actually surprised me as I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from a graphics exhibition.
I liked this work due the how slick and clean the design of both the poster and accompanying booklet, I think both were considered and carried out with real care and attention to detail. The work illustrates the stages of genocide and i think works really well at communicating a difficult subject. the limited colour palette works really well I think and adds to the visual strength of the piece.
This work really intrigued me as it explores the differences and similarities of more traditional visual communication techniques (screen print) and more digital ways of working, the posters are what first caught my eye and the video accompanying the posters was really interesting to watch and showed the process of creating the work which i think is a really interesting thing to show an audience as it can be the most important part of a piece but the viewer rarely gets to see it.
I really liked the idea behind this piece and thought it was really clever, it has also been completed to a high standard and really looks as though it could be part of a new campaign to raise awareness of the subject. The bright yellow against the white really works and having a cut out of the instagram filter makes it feel like this campaign is something that could travel around colleges/ sixth forms and you can see people taking photos with it and really engaging with the idea. The concept fits perfectly within its target audience and the addition of the buzzfeed element feels really contemporary and like it could be applied to the real world straight away, I think this project has really done a fabulous job on creating awareness for a difficult subject.
