YCN Fedrigoni Alice in Wonderlands tea party.

The YCN briefs are out again for this year so i thought i would take this opportunity to show you what i submitted last year. My outcome was a paper tea party based on the mad hatters tea party from alice in wonderland. The idea was that people would recieve a blank cake box slice invitation that they had to decorate and bring along with them. This would help show off their own creativity as well as the diversity of the paper Fedrigoni produce.

type

An older piece of my work. Experiment typography project completed october 2009. This project focused on creating large lettering in an experiment type which were then photographed in a variety of urban locations. The typeface was created from triangles to promote a type event in which 3 speakers were the focus of the event. The typeface relates to the 3 speakers and the bold lettering creates interest to the event. Below is the experimentation and final outcome of the project.

Closure Book

Closure was an exhibition held last summer at artworks mk gallery and afterwards at Northampton university. Luckily my book was accepted into the exhibition. The book features hand drawn and cut paper butterflies on wire escaping from the book. I also crocheted paper chains which were attached to wire which also 'escaped' from the book.
