Those Olympic posters: some alternatives

Those Olympic posters: some alternatives

Earlier this month, 12 posters by leading artists for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics were unveiled to a largely skeptical public. Given the identical brief, Kingston University students have provide you with their very own versions

Over the present term, i’ve been doing a little lecturing with the third year students on Kingston University’s graphic design and photography courses. a few weeks ago, following the discharge of the 2012 Olympics artists posters, course director Rebecca Wright and that i asked the scholars in the event that they wish to reply to a similar briefy given the artists. We asked them for a non-public response to the belief of the London Olympics and the intersection between art and sport. Listed below are their responses.

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 Didn’t Finish, the final Olympic fail.

For her poster, Ran Park overlayed images of athletes performing various sports to create this pretty composition

A lot of the scholar responses were quite critical or dubious in regards to the supposed benefits of the Games coming to London. Here Libby Wimble compares LOCOG’s ambitions to these of a Stalinist Five Year Plan: presumably she feels they’ve got as little basis truly as one another. The background to the poster is made of 250,000 tiny tractors

Rosie Palmer and Helen Ferguson were also dubious, concentrating on the terrorism threat

Tamara Elmallah was excited about all of the overcrowding the games will bring to the Tube, overlaying a picture of spectators rendered in all of the Olympic colours until it becomes a brown sludge of humanity

And Paul Chanthapanya points to the insidious nature of sponsorship on the Games

While Stephen Messham points out that suffering on the planet is not going to leave simply because the Games are in town

Others, though, chose a more positive view. Benji Roebuck and Clara Goodger created their poster from the word for ‘hello’ within the languages of competing nations, allowing the ink from one word to run into another suggesting the arrival together of other nations on the Games.

Coming together is additionally the theme of Jo Hawkes’ poster

Hannah Parker had a neat idea for a digital display wherein segments would gradually appear over a amount of time running up the outlet of the Games until the picture was completed

While Felix Heyes, Josh King, Paul Nelson and Ben West cleverly capture the thrill of the starting block

The same team (minus Paul Nelson) also came up with this wonderfully witty idea. ‘Who’s there? The Olympics!’

 

Thanks to each of the students who took part. They just had just over per week to come back up with these, alongside all their other work. Set alongside the efforts of our illustrious artists, i feel there are some worthy contenders here.

CR Survey

There’s an excellent story within the new Saul Bass book where Bass, recovering from hip surgery, presents his idea for a lager ad from his hospital bed. So, we want to understand, what is the strangest client presentation you have ever done?

Bass was famously great at presenting work, meticulously crafting presentations to exploit his talent for comic timing and persuasion. Lou Dorfsman said that Bass’s best pitch presentations were “worthy of Oscar nominations – at least!”

CR Survey

CR Survey

In Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design (featured inside the November issue of CR), Art Goodman recalls how, within the mid-60s, Saul Bass presented ideas for a lager commercial while recovering from an operation. “I’ll always remember the sight of Saul, just out of hip surgery, meeting with the folks from the Howard Gossage agency,” he says. “We were all wearing masks and hospital gowns, but Saul acted exactly as though we were inside the office. He introduced the primary ideas and began flipping through images on black cards … he even had a moviola [for editing] moved into his room.”

There has been a lot of tales of serious pitch presentations down the years: our favorite is probably Robert Brownjohn trying to convince Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, the producers of From Russia With Love, to move ahead with is concept for the titles, a narrative recounted in Emily King’s Sex and Typography biography of Brownjohn. “In a darkened room, he turned on a slide projector, lifted his shirt and danced in front of the beam of sunshine, allowing projected text to glance off his already alcohol-extended belly. ‘It’ll be similar to this’, he exclaimed, ‘except we’ll use a lovely girl!’”

CR Survey

We were wondering if readers had any presentation tales to top these. Have you needed to pitch under similarly strange circumstances? Or have you ever deliberately staged a presentation in an unusual or dramatic way?

FREITAG – F49 FRINGE Backpack

In Uncategorized on June 24, 2012 by argentinan1

FREITAG – F49 FRINGE Backpack from FREITAG lab. ag on Vimeo .

Wow, this brand-new clip for FREITAG’s F49 FRINGE Back-to-School-Back-Pack made me stop and look. It’s been shot of their factory building inside the heart of Zurich. The lighting and overall atmosphere is extremely intruiging. They explawithin the ir somewhat somber tone in the video in that ‘because there is not any tougher hood than schoolyards, it was tested to the perimeter of sadism’. Whoever manages to rip up this backpack clearly must be dispensed from school.

Two thumbs as much as the team over at Zwei Hund . Well done!

Oh, and for all of you NYC folks: Do you know that FREITAG opened a shop within the Lower East Side ? Right around the street from the hot Museum! It’s essential to go in and say hi to Sascha who runs it!

Our poor hearts are delicate little things, consumed, almost always, by hope. Proof lies in Craigslist Missed Connections pages – digital message boards heaving with missed opportunity and consequential longing. Big apple-based illustrator Sarah Blackall has spent the previous couple of years delicately rendering these fleeting love stories in Chinese ink and watercolour, and the consequences now exist in book form – proof that love, or a minimum of the hope it provides, still exists.

Sarah Haug’s illustration is not sensible. I’m serious. I don’t understand her work – I don’t understand what, why or when it’s. But, for me, therein lies its genius. Illustration rarely shocks and startles – it’s rarely something except for what we understand to be illustration in a standard sense. So when a fully weird portfolio like Sarah’s crops up it’s important we showcase it. Perhaps this is often the way forward for image-making and maybe it isn’t. Either way, let’s enjoy it now.
