funny how “myspace days” is an actual legit reference to a point in time
So, I had a lovely creative day yesterday (always fun when you get to do something a bit different at your day job!) I ran a branding/identity workshop with third year Promoters on the Fashion Design & Technology BA at The Arts University Bournemouth - as Promoters they tend to work digitally a great deal, and miss out on the hands-on work that the Makers (by default) get to do more of; so I got them thinking about their brand through some lino printing and making their own rubber stamps. Kat (‘Mumford’) came up with something that she is really happy with simply through the limitations and restrictions the tools/materials provided - next week we are going to digitise her ideas, using Illustrator to create her logo proper. Obviously I had a go too, which helped generate some ideas for my No Cure For Curiosity Zine project with artist Paul Hearn.
I use Origami and Kirigami a fair bit, and it’s a simple and inspiring activity for creative workshops with people of all ages… gets the brain thinking in weird and wonderful ways - if it interests you then this article’s worth a read
