when you realise someone has ‘stolen’ ‘copied’ your ideas and they talk about it as if they thought of it themselves. funny. people say you should take it as a compliment, i would if they didn’t pretend it was all their idea. i’m being bitter right now.
“The midget is frigid I put it to you
Who’s got a match I’ve got the petrol to set it too
I know I shouldn’t have trusted you
It’s making me tense when you’re telling me
It’s just the facts that don’t compute the classic way
I guess I’m wrong again anyway”—Biffy Clyro
the song i’ve chosen for my final project from the list of brent’s crazy dance songs.
i’ve thought of a quote for the t-shirt and it’s optimism ———— realism as the song talks about promises and moving away, i think it is very optimistic and make believe. the person is obviously a dreamer and prefers to dream than maybe relate to their real life.
for this project, i wanted to focus on colour rather than having mass amounts of detail in my work. i wanted my pieces to be very abstract and not obvious (which was set in the brief) although people may find them ‘boring’ or ‘simple’ this was my intended idea.
pretty much finished 90% of this project now. but the more i look at my designs, the more i hate them. i wanted simplistic designs, because i was focussing on the colour, the ideas haven’t come out how i had them in my head. i think i’ve just rushed through the end of the project and the outcome isn’t as perfected as i had wanted. but it’s all about research i guess. so fingers crossed.
I really like this piece of Typography because although it has a strong personal message, I think because it has been stitched there is an even more personal touch and this influences the style even more – to me. I also like how it is not perfect and it has been done digitally, I like how there are mistakes, I like the rustic quality.
I think this piece is particularly bad because I cannot read the text – which is the main focus of the piece and the message they’re trying to get across, so because I cannot see this, it defeats the object of this piece even existing. This is probably down to the font, personally I do not like it at all. Also, I think the colour choice isn’t very appealing so the appearance doesn’t grab anyone’s attention and make them want to read on anyway.
i recently came across this website where people/artists upload their work, design, fine art, photography, the list goes on. it is really inspiring looking on this website. i’ve added it to my bookmarks, i think it’ll be a top favourite from now on.
