We were asked by Adrian to produce a human figure using newspaper, so i created this figure Alice. Whilst constructing Alice i thought to myself there must by some method to Adrian’s madness surely??? Once we had created the figures, Adrian mentioned how just creating something on the spur on the moment, you could create an intresting cover for a magazine without laboriously slaving over it. I thought this was a really good exercise, so i have developed it one stage further to a fictional magazine cover, i think it looks quiet good, its not an amazing piece of deisgn work by any means, but it just shows what is possible with this theory. Thanks Adrian!

In a lecture a few weeks ago, Adrian (one of our lecturers) told us we had to create ten magazine deisgns, just from old magazines and newspapers, nothing else. It was quiet a fun task, but really hard trying to find images an material which linked together. With the design below i was lucky to find a few magazine articles with nice illustrations, that featured the colours i wanted for my experimental design. I found it really difficult trying to create 10 different designs, i think i was too ridgid in my thinking, and i should have mabye been a little bit more expiremental.
Below is one of my favourite of the designs i created. If i have a chance i might try and create a few more deisgns mabye.
