Monday the 10th October I took a trip to Glasgow to visit some museums including the Lighthouse on mitchell lane which I recommend a trip too for anyone. Click on each photo for a description.
I find Charles Rennie Mackintosh chairs very simplistic yet unique. I took a photo of these because each one is different and would fit in any interior.
#thebigroseproject was a lovely wee piece of art on the windows at the viewing platform, they were testing for something but even these two I found beautiful and the view behind makes it all the better.
Small buildings found across the country in tiny hand size models. The fact they are in white makes it much more eye catching and calming.
I took this photo not because I liked the table but because it was placed on a mirror and the reflection went far down giving true depth
The table top itself was leather and I loved that, it was unique and didn’t copy the typical wooden top.
This piano was a favourite of mine as it was so abstract, you had your chinese dragon then some beautiful pear shapes on the sides with many other patterns. I found it much more interesting than any other piano and think if more had graphics like this I would want to play more.
Confused? I found this funny as it was a toilet sign but if you thought in your own way you would think the typical “two faced girl” scenario.
4 heads. 4 colours. 4 different emotions in my eyes. Happy, Energetic, Serene, Eco.
we don’t often see mail boxes like this anymore as they are usually big and red or in our door. I think this was a good use of recycling and using the word sust to show the sustainable materials used.
simple yet messy art. The splats of colour create a beautiful painting of a flower and the cutting brings out the colour.
The Banana. An exciting task on learning layers, what was done here was colouring in, then hiding areas by moving layers around and creating more. It was really easy and I would definitely say “have a go!”.
As clear, this was made before the rotoscope. A 16×16 pixel photo can show so much such as the main colours in your face and people can still guess it’s you! Compare the two, what looks more fun? The rotoscope was but this was still an enjoyable yet quick task!
A task we were set is to make a rotoscope of ourselves, this was very hard but an exciting task. I found the face the hardest as trying to get my darker/contour areas were annoying, it always looked stupid! Improvements could be made but that is with everything. This is something I would love to do again, even with other faces such as celebrities and see what they turn out like. Could even use this for halloween it’s that scary.
A short task on making our own mind map, each road name is something which has inspired me to do design or I enjoy.
A small project we did was drawing a culturally significant object, of course I did a MacBook as many depend on it. I placed it into a photoshop file, edited it to make it look more real and less as a drawing then added some images around it to give it a better feel. I enjoyed this as it took a small amount of time yet a good outcome came of it. I feel this will be something I can do again.
Recently the class at Napier have been working on t shapes to show our inspirations and influences. The top is the influences from areas such as art, photography, nature and architecture… The bottom is inspirations in the graphic world. This project is ongoing and I find it very interesting documenting my design life through a unique image which can change as time goes on.
Day trip to find inspiring pieces of art. Think for yourself, why do you like them?
Different types of plastic but all amazing bright colours
I liked this vase due to the symmetry and subtle colours.
abstract art always interests me.
This model of a building inspired me to be different
Neat. Slots in and saves space, good idea thinking.
The patterns are unique and different on each one but all the same theme.
I liked the colours and idea of keeping everything in kitchen in one place
Confined space, brings people together.
Took a day trip to the museum and found many intriguing design pieces which I have photographed and will post soon.
