New Award! Monochrome International Black & White Photography Awards 2018

2 more awards!

It’s been a good week. I received the news that the LAM publication has been awarded ‘winner’ status in the Professional branding category for the Hiiibrand 2017 design awards and I received my certificate for the ijungle awards 2018 for the Big Book of Bullshit. Happy days! I am so grateful to be recognised by my peers. Thank you 😀

I’ll also be off the the USA on the 25th of this month to present my paper at the AIGA Design Educators conference ‘ Decipher’ and I’m really exited about this. I’ll share more information on the presentation soon but suffice to say it will be the first presentation of my latest creative research project ‘Tridea’. I can’t wait to get feedback on the concept and branding I’ve been working on alongside its theoretical underpinnings.

It’s been a happy Monday so far!

Sustainability Awards 2018

It’s been a while since I posted as my life has been rather chaotic! I’ve now been in Singapore for 3 months and I’m slowly adapting to this way of life. It’s been a whirlwind of change for both me and my family but so far so good and I am loving the new experiences and creative challenges that Singapore has to offer.

I’ve mostly been working on trying to establish myself as an Assistant Professor and find my academic feet so-to-speak but I have found the time (although I’m not quite sure how!) to create a poster design for the upcoming Sustainability Awards 2018 which will be held during our Final Year Project Show at the National Design Center in May this year.

Since moving to Singapore I have been enthralled by the beauty of the flora and fauna here so much so that my camera has hardly been out of my hand in an attempt to capture this beauty. I wanted to communicate this in my poster design and how sustainable design can play an important role in maintaining or even enhancing this natural environment.

I was concerned that the floral design could end up looking too feminine however, I think the hands I created are somewhat genderless and this coupled with the addition of a rough texture helps to convey a more neutral tone. I wanted to utilise a natural colour pallet but avoid the obvious approach of using  green. I therefore chose a more rustic, earthy pallet of browns, oranges and yellows which I’m really pleased with and I think this also helps communicate a less feminine aspect to the poster.

Overall I am pleased with the design and I can’t wait to see what the students come up with for their entries.

Some of my photography of the flora and fauna near my home. The yellow flowers in particular inspired my poster design:

 

Below is my (almost) final poster design which should soon be on it’s way to print 🙂
