death march hidden by athlete olympic march

Berlin olympic stadium/auschwitz

ANOTHER graphics project, i know, but this is what I've been doing with all my time! For this project we had to pick a subject and an audience out of a hat which proved for some inneresting combinations! I picked "1936 Summer Olympics" as my subject and "businessman" as my targeted audience. SO I decided to try and sell the olympics to a businessman by highlighting positive things about it but leaving elements of the reality of what actually happened (The beginnings of the Nazi regime in Europe). It's always hard when you've got to design for a subject that is sensitive and still has certain taboos (Nazis/holacaust) but hopefully I haven't offended anyone!!

TB. Ted Baker not Tuberculosis

Just a cheeky sample of some the work I did for the YCN Ted Baker brief. The brief was to create an integrated campaign for one of Ted Baker's product lines, e.g shoes, watches, glasses, fragrances. I focused on watches and the idea of the Ted Baker store as a Natural History Museum; "Ted captures time". Above is a suggestion for an instore poster, an attempt to capture the 'irreverently British humour' that Ted Baker is famous for.

this is the new sh*t

Cape tshirt- Primark
Eyelet vest- Topshop
Crazy sun protectors- Primark
Shorts- Topshop
Knotted tshirt- Primark (they have amazing basics!)
purse/necklace- H&M

So I went on a bit of a shopping spree on thursday. Right now I'm really into basics with a twist. Got my cape tshirt, my tie up tshirt and my holey vest... I like flags as well- representing with these sweet americano topshop shorts. I bought some sunnies as for a whole THREE DAYS in Manchester it was super sunny- but since i bought mine the sun's nowhere to be seen. How cute is my necklace/bag from H&M- don't think anyone is going to dare try pinch my blackberry on a night out when it's hanging from my neck!
I've realised that on wednesday I will be actively participating in 5 briefs simultaneously!! This week is going to be ultra bizzay in the hizzay.
