While working on some scanned typography in the new Photoshop CC 2014, I found a glitch which produced some pretty eye catching stuff.
This year I have been working on a A3 map & guide for Preston City Centre with
Pete Thompson and Preston City Council. It is to be available for free around the
city to be used as a guide on how to get around and see what Preston has to offer.
This post is a guide through the development of the project. The full project can
be seen here.

Development of the first version of the map where the initial groundwork was done for
the transport system and natural environments. While being as accurate as possible,
it was important for this map to be clear and simple so some roads have been slightly
simplified and not all roads have been included as they are not necessary for this map.
This video shows the development of the map from start to finish.
Based from the finished map that was produced, Preston Council along with fwdesign have produced a detailed version for a way-finding system. It essentially zooms into the initial design, adding extra detail which is necessary for way-finding signage. The system will be implemented into the redevelopment of Preston City Centre from August 2014. Picture to come…

We decided to take Ted Baker over to Italy by bringing together the country’s rich heritage of art and Ted Baker’s humour and styling to engage potential consumers.
The concept revolves around creating a Ted Baker Renaissance. With the idea of placing contemporary English clothing in classic Italian art and the humorous juxtaposition with which it creates.
The project is to be exhibited at New Blood from 2nd – 4th June.

Friday 14th June was the private view for the Preston Degree Show. After days, weeks and months of preparation, the night finally came. It was a great turnout and a great night, I hope everyone who came enjoyed themselves. The show was up for a week before being taken down and prepared for D&AD New Blood (2nd-4th July) & our Manchester show at 2022NQ (5th july).
Here are some snaps of the night.

Look out for the full project after the D&AD Student Awards 2013 are announced.
A fantastic collection of Cuban film posters from the past 50 or so years put together by The Danish Film Institute. I have picked a few favourites but check out the full flickr page as every poster is worth a look [link].
This will certainly be added to my research into film posters for my Honors project at university.
