Today, week 13,our studio got introduced to the new brief for the term.
The anthology brief is a life brief in which we will work alongside the English Literature and creative writing department.
An Anthology is a published collection of poems or other pieces of writing, and we are to re-design the final book.
There is two parts to this brief:
- The individual work
We where handed in each one an specific text, in my case a series of poems and we are to research the context, background and language and develop a visual interpretation of the text in a medium of choice. Printed (5 pieces) or screen base (animation).
2. Work in teams
there will be 4 groups that will have to compete to propose a new design for the anthology publication of this year.
The winning team will get to produce it and the other teams will help with the promotion of the launch event/exhibition
The pitch will be on week 17 and we’ll have to design it considering the budget given to print 300 copies .
FIRST THOUGHTS ABOUT THE ANTHOLOGY BRIEF:
It’s a very challenging brief, since we have only 4 week to prepare for the pitch and several things to research such as costs and not only design.
The individual part of the brief on the other side it’s something I find really enjoyable and useful for on portfolio and not only as a project.
