Self Directed Hypothetical Brief (Finalised)

Theme:

My chosen theme is Female Erotica, I am going to create a collection of 32x32cm designs  which will be suitable for bedding, wallpaper and pillows/cushions. My target market is a more adult audience. My theme has been developed through my dissertation which talks about tattooed women making a statement about their bodies and who owns them, from this I researched erotic art. I will be looking at both the male and female body but will concentrating more closely on feminine images and motifs.

Overall Aim:

To produce a collection of designs, inspired by erotic art and aimed at a broad age market of 18-40+. Due to the nature of my designs I could be difficult to design for a high street market but by being subtle and delicate with the subject I want to target both high street stores and also a more niche market. The collection will be boutique inspired to create an ‘Erotic-chic’ style. I intend on creating my designs and collection by using drawings, various print techniques and possibly incorporating some stitch. I will then scan in and use Photoshop and Illustrator or create my collection.

Objectives:

  • Research – Artists who specialise in eroticism, prints, drawing, sculptures etc.
  • Adult themed interiors and furnishings.
  • Sketch Book – using a range of mixed media, produce a body of drawings and mark makings.
  • Colour – Choose a colour pallet that is on trend for s/s17.
  • Repeat – Produce repeat designs and samples successfully using croquis.
  • Techniques – Create my deigns and samples using various print techniques, specifically lino, screen print, heat transfer and digital print. I also want to use techniques within these such as resist and fabric manipulation.
  • Display collection appropriately and professionally for exhibition.

 

Personal Objectives:

I want to use my theme to celebrate the body and sexual exploration and by using my personal style to express myself through my designs. Throughout my degree I have developed my printing skills and want use these to produce my designs to a high quality standard.

 

Deliverables:

  • Moodboards – colour, theme.
  • Research File.
  • Sketchbook showing ideas and design development  including any loose drawings or mark makings .
  • Prototypes and samples (inc selection of mounted ones)
  • Final collection of designs
  • Statement on design collection
  • Postcards and Business cards

 

Publicity Options:

  • Social Media
  • Leaflets
  • Online Publishings
  • Newspaper/magazines

Field week 1, getting started!

In this first week of ‘Field’ we started with the basics, meeting with our Tutor, Richard, being briefed on the weeks to come including the outline of the project, deliverable

and what we will need to complete in order to successfully complete the module.

We were shown some designs and sketches of Richards to show us what our sketches should look like. If i’m honest the first week has been a bit of a shock as it is so different to anything i’ve done before, i know it will be a challenge, and i hope that i can keep up!

I haven’t had my persona questionnaire filled in yet as i missed our meeting, so i don’t know that theme i will be going with yet, but i can tackle that next week.
