After our visit to the Duke Of Uke I have been thinking about the two crows they had in the shop.
This is an edited version of my Look Mum No Hands! video. I have taken the linear story line away and swapped some of the video and audio clips around to create a non linear piece. Instead of telling a story with perfect continuity the video now focuses more on the brand touch points and the experience of being at Look Mum No hands!
I am currently feeling very inspired by the crow that seems to always pop up when researching the Duke of Uke. How can I somehow rebrand these charming little crows?
I am researching for the brief Duke of Uke the artist above is Anna Lomax, I can imagine the piece to be some kind of bright and playful ukulele artwork, the face resembling the hole in a ukulele.
I possibly want to create a shop window display so I am looking at the vibrant artist Rachel Thomas. Thomas creates almost abstract looking window displays. These displays are unbelievably vibrant, I am feeling inspired by her abstract flower pieces, could I do some kind of abstract ukulele piece?
Sarah Boris is a graphic designer, art director and artist based in London. She was Associate Art Director at Phaidon Press until February 2015. Sarah talked us through many of the projects she has created over the years. I particularly enjoyed the zines she produced for the Barbican Centre, they were a fast turn around project, which sometimes leaves imperfections, however outcomes like that can bare a lot of charisma.
I’ve missed a few Hot House talk blog post’s so I’m recapping on all the ones I have missed.
A while back Paul Jenkins gave an intriguing talk.
