Nude magazine

this is what Nude magazine replied about publicity:

'As regards your end of year show, I'm not sure whether there's much that we can offer. We'd be happy to provide some magazines for goody bags, but as far as a small ad in the magazine is concerned, we could only really offer that if we have some space available just before going to press that we need to fill up and if we did, it would be very short notice. More viable might be a flyer or leaflet which we'd be happy to put inside any copies going to London-based subscribers and people who subsequently order the magazine in the greater London/ Home Counties area. As you know, Nude is distributed both nationally and internationally, but there would be little point in sending flyers out to people in Manchester, New York, Tokyo etc. So if that's any use to you then I would suggest supplying us with about 200 flyers.'

i reckon we could still use them in some way...maybe.

Press Packin'

tJust to show everyone what the press pack is going to look like. We're sending it off this week. So I hope you haven't got too many issues. As well it would be good if more people had Idea's of who we can approach for sponsorship. Or if they've got any links to media coverage. Magazines/websites anyone. Also we had the plan of packing them into clear envelopes. I had a few but only like 5 and when kylee and laura tried to get more today found out they cost like 40p each. not really viable. So if anyone can help out with that too.
See y'all tomorrow.

Hi all..................

I've just seen the press pack, looking good! The only issue I have with it is the 'Z' on beeZ,
do we really want this?

We're still doing it on yellow paper right?
And what about the envelope situation? I can get envelopes, 40 of them for free.
Are we still going to draw on them?



Hello everyone,

We are in the process of securing a location for our show, for this we need a contribution of £10.00 each month beginning on the 20th of February.

This will cover the cost of:

Van hire

Unfortunately if we don't receive the money by the 20th we will have to assume that you do not want to take part.

The money will be transferred immediately into a savings account and will be very safe.

P.S We will be having a meeting on Friday to discuss this further.

We were kind of disappointed with the turn out this morning, however we did have a productive morning.
Just so you are aware that the theme is based on the credit crunch, getting as much as we can for free and as we’re looking to exhibit in East London, we’ve taken a cockney rhyming slang for money, BEES AND HONEY.
This theme also reflects the differences of our course, illustrators and graphic designers working along side one another.
Adam is working on the design of the press pack.
Just so you ILLUSTRATORS know that we’ve come up with the idea to do a little drawing or something to personalise the envelope that we’re sending out the press packs in. So get sketching!
We’re on the look for A4 envelopes, of different sorts also! So start collecting!


Harley, Kaz and Ross.

Hello I thought I would have a go at a few visuals, obviously its still in the early stages but I thought i would post it here. See you all Friday x

Just a little extra thing I remembered from the onedotzero talk was Jillz cider, its new from Heineken and targeted at women, might be an idea to approach them too as it is a new product, would be helpful as extra if we need it!

Catch you all Monday,

Kylee :D

Hi All,

Yesterday when I was walking home I discovered this gallery

I think the space is great for us,
It's spread out over 3 floors, it has a kitchen, bathroom and tonnes of hanging space plus it's in a prime location!

They told me that they publicise the exhibition in newspapers and on their website they also invite their extensive contact list.

They also man it, hang the stuff and maintain everything for £4000 a week, that's just £160 between 25 people!

I think we should act fast and book a place as soon as we can so we know what we're dealing with and to avoid disappointment if a space that we want is unavailable!

also, I am not sure if you guys have my e-mail: it' just in case, keep me in the loop!

Hey it's Harley here,

I was thinking, for a final exhibition we could possibly project our images/motion graphics onto a building or something.. I think that could look quite swish, there are companies out there that rent 'large venue' projectors.

Or thinking about the underground, how about we look into 'platform art' and do a collaborative poster or something for underground stations across London?

OR for promo material we could collaborate with each other and send out desk top calenders or sticky notes or something like that to agencies or publishing clients or something for us to promote ourselves?

I'm just thinking aloud.

Hello, I found this:

I thought that the format of a newspaper, (although hard to print on) is really nice. Its quite simple, I was thinking maybe the inside spread could be the quote rather than image?
The front could then have our exhibition logo/name quite small but with the designer/illustrator's name. Each could be treated differently?

Letterpress, screen printing, hand rendered?

Just initial thoughts but I thought maybe we need to keep the budget quite small and reach a larger audience?

Let me know what you think,

See you all soon!
