Colour part 1

Our first session on colour involved us bringing in the 10 coloured objects we'd been asked to collect in previous weeks. We all got into groups depending on our colours, and we arranged our objects first on the table and then in a line on the floor. The table thing I thought was abit pointless so I spent most of that bit smoking.

The line of colour on the floor at the end of the session was pretty cool though! I took a load of photos, and a video which i'll upload as soon as I can.

After messing around with all that, we were asked to use the objects to take some really high contast colour photos. so we teamed up with our complementary colours, we had orange things so we found a group of blue people, and since no one had a decent camera, I had to take them on my phone again! bad times D:

hopefully they'll still be useful for whatever project is gunna get thrown at us next...

These are the best ones I took during that session. I might see if i can get a proper camera and re-do them cause they're nearly all out of focus or blurred. On a plus note the session was quite fun. :)

a load of type..

Okay! this post will hopefully be on going, and is basically going to consist of nothing but the various examples of type i should be collecting over the next... well, forever probably... I'll update it every time I find something of any use/interest.

This is more for my benefit than anyone else's, i need somewhere to keep what i find, since i have a severe lack of printer right now...

*sad face*

so watch this space!

Tomatica free font from Autobahn

gelvetica? tomatica? yes they do exsist, and they're avaliable for download on the site i mentioned earlier. Super.

Some of the stuff theyve done with ducktape, a fence, and a little imagination i think is also worth a mention...
