At college we have a policy of sharing the love, so when someone finds a new blog or art magazine we have to share it with the rest of the class. So when we had to do a presentation on an art magazine article we all rushed out to buy several. These are the ones i picked up & although expensive as a whole they are so worth it. The content and just visual imagery is inspiring. At some point i may blog about some of my favourite pages and articles. But i thought i’d share some of the magazines for you to take a look at! Enjoy!!
Tromso Lights by Toby Loc, he created several of the music videos for Rizzle Kicks and now this. Thought’d i’d share it because its really beautiful, and its all about sharing the love of others work that i enjoy. So go and check his other work out!!
During half term i had some time to have a bit of a social life and watch some tv and went to the cinema. These were just a few of my favourite adverts that i thought i would share, with those equally as sad as me. I love good adverts, mini narratives executed well are my kind of thing. When i was little i used to just flick through watching the adverts, they were far more interesting than the actual programmes!!
I love the look of the Prius advert and the catchy song! Its great, really funny as well with its examples of plurals which i have been applying to my own life when writing about plurals. I like the link between the Prius and the plurals although i find it a mouthful to say, its great that they’ve opened it up to facebook so find out what the plural of a Prius is. Great use of social media to get people talking!
This is not something i would of expected from the Ronald McDonald company. Its a really sweet advert, its so successful that when i watch the advert its sometimes makes me want to cry! (Only sometimes though so dont judge me!) The use of the little cardboard child and seeing a hospital through their eyes is simple and puts the audience in that position. Great use of colour and music too!
Normally the O2 adverts really annoying, the man that does the voice over for it really grates on me. The tone that is set is normally really dull and i flick over whenever it is on. So i was surprised that i enjoyed this advert but i really liked it. The use of blue circles in reference to the ‘o’ and their colour scheme was good it reminded me of a brief we were doing at college before half term called copy (Due to all the different circles). The snappy images too and the music really built up in the background, this is something were not use to with o2 adverts. It was relevant when the olympics was on and is still relevant to British sport, its different from other adverts out at the moment also which is good.
This is an exhibit that i visited today at the Hayward Gallery ( The same place that the Art of Change is on), its a punk graphics exhibit. Unfortunately we were told not to take photographs (Although others were so dont know whats up with that). The exhibit is a great reminder of what came because before computer graphics with photoshop and the like. All the work was simple hand rendered material, the sort of thing you do with a photocopier. Definitely my sort of work!, it was simple which is what i liked and of course being punk graphics it was full of humour although i dont think at the time it was intentional. There were some really cool classic punk style type faces (i.e. They looked angry and as if they were slashed the classic cut out many fonts from magazines and stenciled) I loved the hand done quality of them and the rough edges to it all very cut and paste BRILLIANT! Even if your not into punk or not into graphics i recommend you go and take a look just for some of the humour and a walk down memory lane. The exhibit is free to get into and is only small, so something to do on a lunch break!!
