We’ve just finished of a typography brief set by D&AD (British Design & Art Direction) in their annual student awards.
Creatives the world over value the D&AD Student Awards above any other. Winning a D&AD Student Award truly marks you out as one of the best. Take your first step in becoming a creative superstar.
I decided to go for a brief set by the Ministry of Sound and created a poster to advertise their upcoming Saturday Sessions club nights. I wanted to play with the typography, and after a few trial and error designs, I ended up with this set. I’m really happy with the layout of the text, it was terrible trying to get all the bands to read well and have a fixed style throughout all three, but worked it out. Loving typography at the moment.
Before print, I wasn’t completely happy with the ‘clock’ part. I liked the idea of loosing your awareness of time, and quotes like ‘having the time of your life’ and ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ spring to mind.
Once I printed them out I was really happy with the overall design, and they look a lot better than on the computer. I’ll have to update this post with images of the printed designs.
As always comments and criticism are greatly appreciated! Cheers guys!
