What is Graphic Design

we where asked what is Graphic Design

i replied saying 'its a creative process used to advertise!"

Cubism Project

After sitting down as a group and talking about our own ideas, we soon came up with a design with a range of all our ideas together we had 2 walls to work with and above our heads too

IMAGE ABOVE-all we had to start of with was a red straight line on one wall, which we all agreed we wanted to distal and make cubist looking. In the middle of the line we are sticking a 3D shape which you will have to look inside it to read a cubist quote (quote found when we did our presentation on cubism). below that there will be loads of cubist shapes (3D) made out of mesh and painted in muddy earthy colours, above will be a guitar in a cubist style and a cube is a detailed way, if u look at it straight on it will be fine but if you look at it at an angle it will be distilledIMAGE ABOVE -And on the other wall we have a font saying cubism out of paper leaflets holders and all around it we have distalled images so they just look like nothing in a cubist way, but when you look close you will realize they are loads of random images.

Mapping Project

Follow on from the summer project, we where asked to map out findings
ive come up with the idea of mapping my bed room in detail and show lines for things i like and dislike (the higher the line the more i like it, the lower the more i hate it)
i really wanted to keep most of the things in the room similar to what they are in the room!

This is what i have so far:

Once i have finished this i will cut it so its equal white space on both sides on the map, and using a key, (which will be somewhere in the white space) will show the good and the bad in different colours.
i love the amount of detail im going in to for this project, i have also found it interesting to work with different media in this project (like: watercolours, acrylics, gouache, pastels, oil pastels and even eye blusher, i have found that makeup also adds a rather interesting tone to my work, i used it mainly for the wood affect on the door.

Group 'ism' Project


Cubism was a movement that started in the 20th century, brought on my Pablo Picasso and then followed on by Georges Braque, It revolutionized european painting and sculpture and inspired related movements in music, literature and in architecture. The first branch of cubism, known as Analytic Cubism, was both radical and influential as a short but highly significant art movement between 1907 and 1911 in France. In its second phase, Synthetic Cubism, the movement spread and remained vital until around 1919, when the Surrealist movement gained popularity.

Even today we are influenced by cubism, the way we abstract our buildings and furniture not only in images, the Swedish are very well known for abstracting there furniture, making it seam modern, something new, no one has ever seen before but when have just made things more abstract, places like Ikea which is a Swedish shop that you can find all over the world.
