The brief for this task focuses on the creation of 10 unique abstract A5 landscape orientated book covers.
Notes on abstract cities
After writing down thoughts and how I would approach this task I set to research stills that featured notable landmarks of each city. Some well known, others more so in Popular Culture.
I also reviewed the work of famous artists of the early 20th Century and drew inspiration from a range of artists including Kandinsky, Mondrian and Maholy-Nagy. The other thing this exercise did was to allow me to consider is the use of the blocks of colour and how their form can change.
Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid
Western Harbour, Malmo
Steel Trees, Managua
Salford Lads Club, Manchester
Flatiron Building, Manhatten
Medina Souks, Marrakech
The Old Port. Marseilles
Melbourne Cricket Ground and the National Sports Museum
Orange Julip Ball, Montreal
Marine Drive, Mumbai
Overall a great exercise that allowed me to play form and colour and enjoyable mixing dynamic fonts with the images.
