Producing a set of visual jokes/puns using visual trickery where they snap magically together.
I created 4 designs, two of which could be used as poster designs for advertising campaigns/messages within companies. Researching designs in books A Smile in the Mind, 100 Ideas that changed graphic design and How to have great ideas.
It’s a sketch pad, I sketched it using my graphics pen/tab after drawing it out and scanning it in digitally. A pad is another name for a home. Together it can mean a sketch of a pad (sketch pad).
Dolly Mixtures are famous retro sweets in Britain, they come in different colours and designs. I took a photograph of my daughter’s Dolly and alternated the colour to create ‘Dolly mixtures’.
The third idea I decided to go with an advertisement style pun. Designed for with the Tate Modern in mind, or perhaps any contemporary art gallery. The hand is depicting a person stubbing out a cigarette, but it also looks like the hand has a piece of chalk and is drawing.
I used the photograph below, I adjusted the angle and added in the smoke lines. The red circle and red line is commonly used in signs which are for prohibited use. I used Tate Modern brand logo and Tate Modern brand typography.
Another advertisement style pun. For this I decided to create a plate, with furniture that looked like food. I cut out the furniture from Ikea website, then arranged them into my design, which could be an advertisement with Ikea Restaurant. It’s a design of Fish, Chips and Peas, which is what they do sell within the Ikea Restaurant. I used brand logo and brand typography.
