While developing my FMP posters, I have been pushing my ideas towards creating images and shapes with type and producing a unique look to each idea. I had come across these typographic designs while researching a blog on the Internet called Abduzeedo. Besides posting different graphic solutions, the blog also had tutorials for software’s and ideas development.

As my Journal was completed this past January, I had looked at the work of Paul Rand and researched his history. I enjoyed his thinking and creative process greatly and recently, I had noticed some type posters on Creative Review blog. The use of space and colour is neatly designed and I plan to use this element within my ideas in the future.
While researching more design work involving football, I had come across a designer who had recently left Love Creative, former creative director Rory Sutherland. He now freelances but on his website, shows past work with the agencies he has worked for. I had noticed some Umbro designs for a booklet and poster Rory and Ste Owen had designed in 2009. I had discussed this project with Ste in the past and while generating new ideas and progressing further with my FMP project, this is a great piece of research towards generating new ideas to what I already have.
While researching past agencies which had held talks over the past two years, I came across some nice typographical posters designed by True North for a printers company. I mostly like how True North has changed each typeface for each poster. I plan to use this element within my posters and look forward to the results.
I have recently been working on my advertising campaign for my FMP involving football kits and using the elements and features of the shirt. I have begun to feel slightly frustrated with the stage I am currently at due to the art direction the posters are going. I had decided to once again, step away from the design area and look at other campaigns involving football what design agencies are currently doing. After searching the Internet, the Creative Review blog had posted all Music’s Manchester City posters. This past weekend, I had noticed the Carlos Tevez design in the newspaper and remember feeling emotionally intrigued due to my love of the sport and the recent game coming up. One element I wish to execute is to engage the audience with my ideas like these posters. I feel the illustration and use of typography is executed greatly and I plan to explore these methods with my ideas.
