1. Bus Riders By Cindy Sherman

    These are a few of my favourite images from Cindy Sherman’s series Bus Riders, there are 15 images in total where Sherman dresses as different characters she observed on the bus.

    This again is more inspiration for my Final Major Project, this series of images almost captures individuals personal nowheres whilst making their journeys.

  3. Conceptual photography by Tom Ruff,

    Is started looking into conceptual photography as an area of interest to drive my final major project at university, although I don’t need to start on this yet I am just buzzing with excitement to try my hand conceptualism in my own work and have started to draw inspiration.

     

     
  4. Further editorial shots, as you can see I was experimenting with imagery, layout, colour and white space.

     
  5. Looking into typography colour choice, and imagery association. 

     
  6. Screen shots of how I kept editing and changing the layouts and styling of the pages threw out the design process.

  8. Cranky Old man

    This is a piece of poetry research to go towards my current project the way they have demonstrated how the poem should be read, has been done by using the dots to illustrate a pause, almost like an On/Off sequence.

    Cranky old man

    What do you see nurses? ……What do you see?

    What are you thinking .. . when you’re looking at me?

    A cranky old man, … …not very wise,

    Uncertain of habit .… … . .. with faraway eyes?

    Who dribbles his food .. . … . . and makes no reply.

    When you say in a loud voice . .’I do wish you’d try!’

    Who seems not to notice …the things that you do.

    And forever is losing … …… A sock or shoe?

    Who, resisting or not … … lets you do as you will,

    With bathing and feeding … .The long day to fill?

    Is that what you’re thinking?. .Is that what you see?

    Then open your eyes, nurse .you’re not looking at me.

    I’ll tell you who I am … . .. As I sit here so still,

    As I do at your bidding, .… . as I eat at your will.

    I’m a small child of Ten . .with a father and mother,

    Brothers and sisters .… .. . who love one another

    A young boy of Sixteen … .. with wings on his feet

    Dreaming that soon now …… a lover he’ll meet.

    A groom soon at Twenty … ..my heart gives a leap.

    Remembering, the vows .. .. .that I promised to keep.

    At Twenty-Five, now … . .I have young of my own.

    Who need me to guide … And a secure happy home.

    A man of Thirty . .… . . My young now grown fast,

    Bound to each other …. With ties that should last.

    At Forty, my young sons .. .have grown and are gone,

    But my woman is beside me . . to see I don’t mourn.

    At Fifty, once more, .. …Babies play ‘round my knee,

    Again, we know children … . My loved one and me.

    Dark days are upon me … . My wife is now dead.

    I look at the future … … . I shudder with dread.

    For my young are all rearing .… young of their own.

    And I think of the years … And the love that I’ve known.

    I’m now an old man … … .. and nature is cruel.

    It’s jest to make old age … … . look like a fool.

    The body, it crumbles .. .. . grace and vigour, depart.

    There is now a stone … where I once had a heart.

    But inside this old carcass . A young man still dwells,

    And now and again … . . my battered heart swells

    I remember the joys … . .. . I remember the pain.

    And I’m loving and living … … . life over again.

    I think of the years, all too few …. gone too fast.

    And accept the stark fact … that nothing can last.

    So open your eyes, people .… . .… open and see.

    Not a cranky old man .

    Look closer … . see .. .…. …. . ME!!

  10. After my presentation I went back and re worked it using numbers to re enforce the number sequence as you can see I did a lot of different testers to find the right position, colour and size.
