Visual Association Posters

This university task was the first of year two. It was aimed to get us thinking about visual links within our future projects. This is something that I was passionate about, believing that the idea is king.

I was given Bird Watching and several other subjects to link it to, the ones chosen being ‘Within Literature’ and ‘Within Art’.

BIRD WATCHING WITHIN LITERATURE

The Bird Watching Within Literature poster combines a book with the shape of a bird.

By using negative space and a focus on the page edges I was able to convey the message clearly. I felt it was important to simplify, simplify and simplify again to achieve a pure execution that speaks for itself.

BIRD WATCHING WITHIN ART

The Art of Bird Watching poster combined the notion of the famous birdwatchers pose pointing to the sky and the aspect of the painting. The idea focuses on the person (Napoleon) pointing to the sky, cropped to allude to the fact he may be birdwatching.

The added bird poop on the shoulder enhances the notion that the watcher is embedded into the environment.
