This is the first section of my third year project. Id wanted to design something that would encourage less abled people to recycle more, plus promote independence in activities of daily living. Having begun my career out of school as a trainee nurse and health care assistant, I was able to see first hand some of the difficulties people can face when trying to remain as independent as possible in their later years. My great grandmother lived till she was 94 years young, and was a big influence in my life, both in terms of respecting elders and making the most of what you have on hand. This is where the “waste not want not” title comes from.
Id love to hear your feedback on the first part of my project. the next three will be up in the coming week!
This project was the first major project I did after graduating from university. I was asked by a friend to design a logo for his business (painting and decorating) which was a new venture for him. The customer was quite specific in colour scheme and style but didn’t know how to go about producing business cards, letter heads and compliment slips. To add to this he wanted his Renult Trafic van wrapped in the design signage. Once he and I had worked on the initial design and had finalised the business cards, I then contacted a local vehicle wrapping and signage company to print the graphics and wrap the van.
I was asked by local barber and friend to do a series of advertising campaign posters for use on his Facebook social media page. I used a combination of photography and graphics to show exactly what was being offered and by who. I find this type of advertising, where showing the person doing the selling (in this instance, Rob the barber) personifies the service and makes it much more relatable to the customer.
Rob runs a drop in barber shop in Holyhead, North Wales. This is why the slogan “ready when you are” was used; to portray that Rob is always available and that no appointment is necessary.
