Recently I was the Creative Director for a small College production called Playing for Time. This play is set in the Holocaust in the Auschwitz concentration camp. There was a group of women that got picked out because they could play music. Which turns out that it saves their lives in the end. My involment in the show was heavily concentrated on the technical and production side of things. For this show, I wanted to step outside the confit zone a bit on the technology I used to run the show. The show its self-was not very technical but required some creative thinking to pull of what I did. For any theater show, you need three main elements need to work together in the backgound to create a masterpiece. Let me walk you through what I wanted and did for the show. Lighting The lighting for the show was incredibly simple a general wash on stage, a few special spots to light difference actors as needed and a way to have diffrent colors in the secne. I decided to use LED lights to create the color for the show. The problem with the lighting was that we did not have an expensive lighting desk to […]
One of the Coolest Projects by far that I have had the chance to work on was the St Clare’s College 50th Photo. This was part of St Clare’s College 50th Celebrations. This project was months in planning and all over and done with in about an hour. So let me explain a little on how I went about the project. The first step of the project was to create a 50 and make sure that it was the right size in order to fit 1200 people in it. So the easiest way I knew how to do that was to use a little bit of maths. I measured my shoulders and found that my shoulders were about 500mm apart. I then used some grid paper. I then scanned the grid into the computer and used A pixelated font in order to get the shape of the 50. then from there I scaled the 50 until I believed that It was the right size. I then broke down each of the sections of the shape and counted how many people were in each. This was the base of the 50 shape. The next step was to take the photo. The problem was […]
At the St Clare’s College Open night in 2016 I was asked to showcase the wonderful opportunities that are available in the Arts program. The best way I thought to do this was to create a small projection mapped installation on the build of the Arts Faculty. I found to projections and pointed them at the walls I was another visual element that just made the night a bit more fun.
based on these criteria above that was set by logotourmant I have created a logo that better brands me. My logo idea came from the stamp idea that you see on meat packs or the idea that the logo could be engraved into a surface. with this a my goal I tried to focus on what the core things in design that I do. So I decided to break them into categories which are. Print Photography Videos web These three elements are the broad range of what I do each but it helps focus on what areas of design that I love. The pen and pencil are the core tools in design but as a modern form the computer is a designers hub the number one tool that I use to create my work. The text that I wanted to include would be to simple brand me in works my name and the word designs helps bring together every element in the logo.
above is a small time-lapse video that I have create of one night of me colouring in one of the adult colouring in books. It is good to show the time that it takes to create good design. design is not just the end result that you see but more the time that it takes to complete a task. The thought and process beside why you have created what you have in order to meet the brief. Enjoy
