To promote the christmas jumper party for our design school, Andreas and I went about rounding up the tutors of various courses, putting them in christmas jumpers and photographing them. Andreas then tied it all together with some copy and we posted as many as possible around the building.
To lift the Christmas spirit and to strengthen the bond between the different creative departments in the Victoria building, we are inviting everyone to a Christmas jumper get together. But in order to make it relevant to all the students outside the graphic design course, we are just about to launch a poster campaign, featuring tutors from all the different departments dressed in Christmas jumpers.
The aim is to fit at least a hundred students and tutors in the close by pub, having a drink and a laugh together. Hopefully this will help us get to know other students from other departments better leading to more collaboration. Creativity is not a lonely journey.
A successful and conversation starting project. The night itself was a great way to see off the year with a fantastic turn out.
Today (Friday 4th May 2012) is my last day on placement at Uniform and the last of my planned placements so far(although I may try and fit in a couple more before I go back to uni) A full post about the last few months will be posted at some point, but for now, here is a photo a wall in the offices of Uniform.
Reminds me of the Eggs for sale & Flying lessons section from the art of looking sideways.
While this is one of my favourite signs on my way into Liverpool city centre, it still isn’t quite as good as Sunbeds & English lessons.
I found a Russian blog with a series of behind the scenes pictures from films. I have picked some of my favourites.

Busy getting some work done for a presentation tomorrow an this is the view out of the window.
Whilst sifting through a ton of old victorian style photos, I found this gem. It looks like something horror films are based on.
I started a placement at Black & Ginger today and it went well. For part of the day I was researching ye olde death portraits. Here are some of the more interesting finds of the day. Oh and I should warn you, it is photographs of dead bodies so if you think that might not be your cup of tea, don’t look below.
A William Hope, double exposure effect photograph – Very interesting and creepy photography, more here
This last one is my favourite (if you can have a favourite) as it is so clear and striking. It looks like something straight out of film noir.
Maybe tomorrow will be less morbid. I doubt it.
