Week 43: FMP-Awareness Campaign Poster

 

 

Here are the basic ideas what I made for Awareness Campaign Poster of the London Underground.

The right side poster is showing the crash between passengers. In the crowded London Underground, passengers make crash once they do not care others and they are in hurry. As the illustration, the bottle glass are broken and candy are scattering at everywhere. The candy likes passengers and the glass bottle like the protection. So the prose of this poster is to aware passenger please slow down when you walk through the London Underground.

Poster 1 – Slow down, don’t CRASH !

The another poster is showing the common condition usual happened when passenger s want to get in side of the rube train and the passengers who want to get out. The same messages which I would like to show to passengers is please wait a moment, let the passengers who are inside the tube train get out first, don’t make crash.

Week 43: FMP- Logo Design

The name of my FMP project is ‘CRASH‘. Crash including a lot of meaning in here, the main propose of this title is want to make passengers care others when they walk through the London Underground. In the crowded London Underground, passengers make crash once they do not care others and they are in hurry. In terms of the candy mini glass bottle, the opposite meaning is also want to passengers care emotion of others, make feeling crash, happy crash, it also can be positive. I am going to use the same colours and shape as the logo of the London Underground, just change the position of colours and word. It will be hard drawing, because I would like to show the flexible.

The biggest part of this show is the  illustration display, majority of illustration uses brightly coloured prints. I also love that they showed their sketchbook in the exhibition as this always gives more insight into a student’s work.

Week 42: FMP-London Transport Museum

I have been to the London Transport Museum last week, this is a part of my process in my research in order to know the historical project of the London Underground. I found this is a really interesting museum that people can acquire knowledge and also playful.

There was one exhibition called The Prize for Illustration 2015: London Places & Spaces, displays 100 illustrations that capture a variety of aspects of London’s unique character and qualities. The works in the exhibition range from the contemplative to the crowded and loud, imaginary or real, and from the past to the present – all places that form part this amazing City. Each of the illustrations is accompanied by a short description written by the artist revealing the inspiration behind their creation. [1]

The Prize for Illustration 2015: London Places & Spaces in London Transport Museum

Personality, the best part of the transport journey was the Art and Poster section. Over 100 years ago Frank Pick commissioned the first graphic poster (No need to ask a P’liceman, by John Hassall, 1908) for London Underground.The stores are a permanent home to one of the world’s finest and most comprehensive collections of transport posters and artworks. Visitors can immerse themselves in the rich design heritage of London’s transport, explore some of the 7,000 posters that London Transport commissioned and get close to original artworks that are rarely seen by the public.

Week 42: FMP- Image of Final Project development & Personal Icon

The graphics team require us an image of our Final Project development work to include on a website and poster and an icon design for ourselves to present on the exhibition.

This is the image what I chose from my research and sketchbook that I think it communicates my project. Basically, the original image was a scenario of user experience journey which I made for develop my project during research period. Though the user journey you can find some problems clearly, this is what I want.

This yellow and blue with a tinny red box image is my icon for the FMP exhibition. The icon is based on my English name ‘Tina’, ‘Tina’ has the similar pronunciation as Chinese ‘天哪’ which means ‘Oh My God’ and also always have surprise when people saying ‘OMG’. So I hope my FMP project can display surprise to viewers and heard ‘OMG’. In terms of  the colours, I chose three-primary colours, because the colours of every projects are based on three-primary colours, every good designs are also based on primary things.

I had the last tutorial before self-study. It was really important and useful for me. This tutorial determine what I am going to display my project on FMP exhibition.

I am trying to improve the experience of Tube users (Regular travelers) by sweet colour. I would like to make passengers feel happy, warm and relax and also they can give happiness, to others and care other people when they travel in the London Underground.

Week 41: FMP-Workshop3

We had our last workshop this Wednesday with tutor Jackie and Dr Jane Birkin who presented alumni advice on exhibiting the FMP final outcome as an independent MACD practitioner. She kindly brought in again her sketchbooks to share and reflecting on her own FMP student experience and giving us the benefit of advice from a MACD student perspective.

Hardout from Workshop

The SIX WORD STORIES Workshop produced on Wednesday, it was really useful for me to decide the titles of my FMP project.

In the1920s, Ernest Hemingway bet ten dollars that he could write a complete story in just six words. He wrote:”For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.” He won the bet.

A working title is sometimes called a production title, or a rough title and is a temporary name for a product or project used during its development. Working titles are used when the ‘end result’ is not decided or finished and work is still in progress. As the brief, we paired up with another student and spent 10 mins between us and discussed our projects. Then we tried to describe ourselves in 6 words. ‘Feel sweet, London Underground.’ was my working title which I made, because I am trying to make the project that is to let passengers feel sweet, relax and comfortable and solve the problem about frustrating environment from crowded in the London Underground. Dr Jane Birkin gave me suggestion that I can make the title more powerful, like ‘Candy Crush’.  After short discuss with Dr Jane Birkin, I clear on issues covered and that the work I am produced. Now to develop them to best represent our projects or decide that what I have works and does justice to your creative work.
