Grimm's Fairy Tales

A WIP at the moment, still working with the type! We were recommended to strip back as much clutter as possible to see what we could get away with, this was a lot more busy to begin with. The tricky part is then balancing the remaining elements; which is hard but interesting too :D

Final Project: Pinocchio!

I'm doing my final project on Pinocchio :] This post shows a 2-day mini-project in which 2 images from my research file were picked by a classmate, and then used by me as inspiration for at least 8 images about my project. It was a brilliant exercise for generating ideas!

War of the Worlds: Final Book

A selection of spreads from my final book for my War of the Worlds project. Each page is A4 (so these double-page spreads are A3 images).

I’m fairly happy with SOME of the layouts heheh; the aim was to portray a sense of immense scale, the tiny-ness of humanity’s place in this extermination, and the bleakness of the whole event. I wanted to portray these aspects of the book through the lesser events; the vivid descriptions which were packed full of cool imagery but were only a couple of lines long!

PS The program I used to shrink the images down for the web obviously hates colour and texture. >:o
