This was by far my most challenging project that I completed in London. Our task was to explore and create type that is neither on screen nor on paper.
Whilst being initially excited about the project I soon became apprehensive as it was clear my grandiose ideas were not going to play out quite as I had hoped within the time-frame and limitations of a five week elective course on an unemployed student budget.
I chose to create a typographic exploration based on the theme of cities and home, using quotes and statement related to this. These would then be presented through a number of street art mediums. Paste-ups, stencil art and projections.
After nearly getting arrested (At one point myself and my helper Jess had seven cops surrounding us) and my typographic project budget being re-distributed to paying off our police fines my plans then became smaller and more achievable and were limited to only what I could achieve in the dead of the night, the irony of nearly getting arrested paying tribute to the city I love was not lost on me 😉 Enjoy.
