Great example of advertising space take overs. More please.
Extracted from the blog -
“Following on from the guerilla art traditions of the 20th Century and taking inspiration from the Dadaists, Situationists and Street Art movements, the Brandalism project will see the largest reclamation of outdoor advertising space in UK history as artists challenge the authority and legitimacy of the advertising industry. We are tired of being shouted at by adverts on every street corner so we decided to get together with some friends from around the world and start to take them back, one billboard at a time”
Pardon the post title, I simply couldn’t help myself.
Here is a selection of some of the finest grads that I have seen this time round.
Lovely high end editorial design work and some cracking branding bits too. Tight type with a luxurious feel.
‘Inspired by an advent calendar, this interactive poster acts as a reference tool to hang on a designers wall. When paper choice is considered, this brand will be in view. The paper names are omitted to allow the user to inquire about purchasing the selector tool. Alongside this would be a stop motion animation advertisement as well as teaser business card versions.’
To be perfectly honest, I just like the thought of a customisable poster where anyone can create their own multi coloured pixel art.
A lovely selection of print work showing both a wonderful artistic eye combined with a real creative flair for type
Tight work by Laura Gordon. The Gutenberg and the Freedom of Ideas piece below is a personal favourite
Lovely hand scripted type here. Will be keeping tracks to see how Mia’s work develops.
VW have released 2 new adverts. Both struck a positive chord with me for very different reasons.
Firstly, a teaser for the new VW Beetle that’s due to drop this year that features a CG beetle (sporting racing stripes) racing through the wild.
And the second, a sickly cute advert featuring a youngster with a penchant for Darth Vadar and the force. This one is a good’un.
