I thought for my creative journal outcome about doing something involving perspex, like several hanging sheets where you would have to look through them al together to get the picture. Each sheet could be one colour for example. However, I need to find a way to show photographs be it through vectoring key imagery from them or other methods. I feel the design what ever it is on the perspex sheeting needs to be simple. If I were to make an accompanying booklet, it could share the idea of looking through something. For example I could use acetate to separate pages or to be part of the cover.

Here are some photos I found of perspex in use.


Clever Design. They show what shoes would like like if they were turned into a small box

Simplistic use of lego to make well known characters.

‘German advertising agency Jung von Matt created a wonderful minimalist ad campaign for Lego which not only looks great but also forces us to ‘Imagine’. It’s great not just because of its aesthetics but because it delivers a strong message – LEGO will put your imagination to work. However, copyranter and have pointed out that the idea might be a rip-off of a fan-created Lego artwork that appeared earlier than this ad campaign.’

I came across this website with a variety of interesting and unique business cards. None of them, I consider to be standard business cards, they each have their individual flair. Here are a few.

Personal Business Cards

‘Personal project for Dario Monetini’s own business card. It’s made on a transparent plastic, and there’s a set of different objects you can use to put in front of the face of your friends to have a kind. The artists says it’s a funny version of an analogic photoshop! ‘

Tok&Stok – Toy Chair Business Card

I love the creativity in this next card, something I have not seen done before.

‘Going to a store and taking a business card is customary. Now, what you can do with it is what varies. Tok&Stok turned their business card in a entertainment. To allude to their easy to assemble furniture, the brand launched an unprecedented action that converts the business card in a little chair. To do so is very simple: just detach the parts marked and put them together. The back of the card has the logo, while the seat takes the essential information such as address and phone number. ‘

Hair Dresser Business Cards

I like the interactivity in this design, simple, yet shows what the business is about. It is certainly my style of work/use of colour.

‘This is a fun and standout design that is both memorable and will keep the kid busy while you get your haircut.’

These are just a selection of cards, there are lots more here:

I was looking around for hand made and interesting wedding invitations when I came across these. The materials used give that extra personal touch to the cards. Wonderful.

I found these interesting lego word searches on a website, the idea is that you find certain parts which make up an object.

Here are some illustrations I found from Atelier Olschinsky.
