Univers

The design agency Julia, set us the task of creating a publication based laterally on a typeface. The typeface we were given was Univers.

This publication showcases 116 images that were sent into space on board the Voyager space craft in 1977. If the Voyager spacecraft is ever intercepted by an extra terrestrial lifeform, these images will serve as a depiction of life on Earth. The publication takes on the aesthetic of the golden record and provides a medium in which anybody can access these beautiful and relatively unknown images.

Olympic Artist Posters

Last week Patrick Burgoyne from Creative Review gave us the task of taking on the olympic artist posters released a couple of weeks ago and attempt to respond to the same brief. Ben West and I decided to focus on the constant ridicule artists and designers have faced throughout the Olympics.

Here's what Patrick had to say -

Leanne Bentley and Ben West came up with this cheeky and somewhat damning response to the artists involved with the official series: DNF stands for Did Not Finish, the ultimate Olympic fail.

The Lottery

When researching the national lottery we were surprised at just how much money is given to good causes. We found the total from just one draw is such a huge quantity that we decided to work out the exact breakdown of the most recent draw and how the money was split up. We found this information extremely interesting and wanted to make it available in a visually exciting way. We looked at objects people associate with winning the lottery and settled on diamonds as the geometric shapes of cut stone lent themselves nicely to information graphics. The colours on the stones represent the quantities specified in the key.
