Creating an Exhibition 3 - Not Another End of Year Show:
A recent project had me teaming up with designers Matt Wright and Oliver Purssey once more, and this time we had the task of creating an identity and branding for our up-and-coming BA Visual Communication end of year show. We brainstormed many ideas, the three shown in this mini-series are just a few of our semi-realised ideas.
Still trying to drive home the idea of everyone within our show’s uniqueness, we thought about branding our exhibition as ‘Not Another End of Year Show’. The intent behind it was that we were not in fact just another end of year show, but we were The Arts University Bournemouth at Visual Communication, and we are the real deal. For this, the No Entry symbol appeared a lot, and this was something that was thrown around and played with alongside the red signalling. The stock image of the girl would change depending on whose work the banners were next to, mine for example would show my face.
Much like our other ideas though, we weren’t entirely confident with its validity as a brand, and we felt like the imagery was not as strong as it could have been. So because of this, we decided to move on again.
