In early July the Brighton University Studio 350 graphic design and illustration show was held at the Rose Lipman Building in Hoxton. This year there was a particularly diverse range of talents on display from both graphic design and illustration. Here are my favourite finds.
Firstly, I fell in love with African influenced patterns by George Harvey, who also played with type featuring amusing quotes from comedian Mitch Hedburg.
Julie-Ann Pedida focused on the colour and designs of coral in miniature sculptures and in this stunning cushion pattern design. Imagine what she could produce for my colouring book open brief!
I loved apocalyptic illustrations by Sasha George: definitely another favourite find who could produce amazing pages for my colouring book.
This crossstitch needlework by Florence Reddington purveyed an equally dramatic message in a very different way.
Printmaker Roo Hasan produced this lush pattern on a tent.
Amy Fullalove made a graphic wall display inspired by the signage needed for nuclear disposal units in the far distant future.
This pottery sculpture of Nigel Farage is by Holly MacDonald who is “teaching the world about politics threw fun ceramics and cartoons” with her Pop-Up Poll Booth project.
Graphic prints by Doyeon Sharon Kim had a distinct 80s vibe.
James Heginbottom created a series of spooky photographic collages inspired by the occult, witchcraft and all things macabre.
Artist Vicky Stevenson put together an interactive stand inviting visitors to Take Something and Leave Something: I took some sparkly badges and left a note saying ‘I like your sparkly badges, and so will my child‘ and he did!
All of these images first appeared on my own my instagram feed: follow me there to catch my discoveries as I make them.
