Wednesday, 28 January 2009


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.

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!
