London Overground posters

My set of Overground posters could be used to entice people to these nearby destinations, from Old Street station.

…or used on the escalators? (whooops – a smaller size!)

Rhythm final outcome: Plattenbau flatpack

I used a condensed version of Futura, as street signs in eastern Germany have narrow typefaces. I remember from Eye magazine a few issues back, that the condensed forms were used to accommodate the long names of Socialist leaders!

An outsider looking in series

I named the series of books I made on five districts in Hackney Borough, An outsider looking in…

I’m an outsider looking in as I didn’t grow up here, nor did many people who live in London. So it refers to my interpretation of the places, and also the fact that ‘outsiders’ can ‘look in’ with these books.

Quotes about the area are featured on the back cover of each booklet to act in the same way as newspaper reviews, and is also a good place to put them if they don’t fit within the guided story of the area.

Plattenbau rhythm

Last Friday, I had an epiphany about my Rhythm project!

I have produced a set of prints featuring the surface pattern of plattenbau in Dresden (now an Ibis hotel). These prints can then be arranged on the wall to create a repetitive pattern… wall art… mauer kunst?

I then had to consider how to package them – I found that the box I receive my weekly Graze deliveries in came in handy!

I will cover up the surface with the title of it (perhaps, I love plattenbau? / Ich leibe plattenbau?), a photograph of the actual building and a photograph of how to use the prints.
