OUGD402- PPP1- If you were a......

If you were a book what would your subject be and who would read you?

If I was a book I would be The Walking Dead series. I am a big horror fan, in particularly zombie themed horror. The book has recently been made into a T.V. series which I also really like. The depth of characters draw you into the story and make you want to read on, I like the suspense it creates. People that would read it would be people interested in horror genres and retro comic stories. 

If you were a package what would you contain and who would open you?

If I was a package I would be an Apple Macbook pro because I brought a new macbook when I started the course and it has been beneficial in helping me complete my work. Also I like the the packaging design because its simple, elegant, functional and reflects the value of the brand and product. People that would open it would be designers that use it for work or people that like the user friendliness of the system.

If you were a shop what would you sell and who would buy it?

If I was a shop I would be a specialist record Shop that sells Vinyl records of all dance music genres. The people would that would buy it would be people that like having something physical to own instead of having digital versions of the music. Everything is going digital now days and I think its a shame that future generations will miss out on things we grew with if they become discontinued.

If you were a poster what would you promote and to whom?

If I was a poster I would promote electronic music to house music fans and. These posters are for Ministry of Sounds 'Saturday Sessions.' I like the use of the overlaid typography which reminds me of the Bauhaus and modernist posters, combined with the bright colours to represent the vibrance and energy associated with house music. 

If you were a brand what would your values be and why would they be important?

If I was a brand I would be Levis. The product is good quality and built to last unlike a lot of brands that purposely design things to last a specific period of time so you have to keep spending money. My values would be to be honest to gain customer loyalty which I think is important in making a brand sustainable.

If you were an exhibition what would you show and where would you show it?

If I was an exhibition I would be Yaacov Agam's kinetic art installation. Im fascinated by kinetic and optical art and the experimental arts. I like the use of colours and how they are affected by movement. I would like to show it in Amsterdam because of its psychedelic aesthetic.   

If you were a leaflet what information would you contain and who would read it?

This is a leaflet for ISCM, International society for contemporary music. I like the use of geometric shapes with a limited colour pallet. It only displays the necessities of the company, the name and the address. I like this minimal approach to the design as I think it would entice the reader into wanting to find out more. People interested in minimal design and music would read it.

If you were a sign what would you show and where would you show it?

I like this retro geometric sign because it uses optical illusions to trick the into seeing the shapes in different ways. The simple line symbol and negative space works well to create a clean, recognisable sign. 

If you were an App what would you do and who would use you?

If I was an App I would be 'Track Name for ITunes.' I have a large collection of music in my iTunes and I like it to be organised with all the correct names of songs and artists. Im passionate about music and listen to it everyday so I like to be able to find songs with ease and I possible might have O.C.D tendencies. People that value their music collection and like things to be in an organised fashion would use this app.

If you were a blog, what would you be about and who would follow you?

If I was a blog I would be Designspiration. It's a blog for creative work. I use it a lot when looking for research or ideas or just to have a look what is going on in contemporary design. People that would follow it would be designers or people interested in anything creative.

If you were an event, what would it be and how would you promote it?

If I was an event I would be a house music night at Birmingham's venue 'The Rainbow Warehouse. Its an up and coming venue that has the characteristics of the 90's rave scene that emerged. I would promote it by the means of social media such as Twitter and Facebook as well as printed media such as posters, fliers and leaflets. Finally I would promote it through the artists that would preform there by getting them to do limited edition promo mixes.
