The next lesson we had after the publication submission everybody was briefed to create a poster for the Exhibition.
But first the name had to be chosen, our group produced names like point25, N.25 and North of X. None of our title ideas progressed passed the voting stage.
The two that did were Cahoots and Decode, personally I voted for Cahoots as when a google search was done on Decode, exhibitions had already been done using the same title.
Decode was the winner, and so the poster production began.
Instantly I thought of back to primary and early secondary school where teachers would hand students leaflets of keywords encoded with symbols and we would have to decode the keywords.
Mark and Imogen sat with me giving feedback as I went about creating my submission.
I chose neon pink as I had wanted to use it since the last time I visited screen printing, and it looks great on the clothing screen prints. Once I slapped the pink down I thought of yellow instantly, don’t know why but it worked.
The feedback was positive from my (sub)team and the tutors alike, Graham (tutor) recommended I leave stating the title Decode as it would take away from what the poster is trying to do. Which I agreed with but at first I thought it would be unclear for people to understand, but once I put the key in I knew it would work.
Plenty of different posters were put forward and the tutors all huddled together to single out the top 3. I have to admit my palms got sweaty waiting in anticipation, and then they said my design had been chosen.
