BOKEN SOM JÄMFÖR 60- OCH 70-TALETS MODE MED DESS TYPOGRAFI

Varje uppslag i denna handgjorda bok består av 1 modeillustration (av mig) och 1
exempel på typografi från 60- eller 70-talet’s magazin BildJournalen. När bilderna ligger brevid
varandra är det enkelt att se hur linjerna böljer sig fram på ett sätt som syns både i illustrationen och typsnittet.
Tidens estetik påverkade alltså båda områdena.
Boken är klädd i brun manchester och inlagan är tryckt i brun färg på orangea papper för att ge den rätta känslan av ”typiskt sjuttiotal”.

 

TYPSNITT: BUILDING PLANS

Jag ville testa att bygga upp ett typsnitt på ett arkitektoniskt sätt. Planritningar kan vara riktigt vackra, och jag ville se om jag kunde konstruera bokstäver med endast väggar, fönster och dörrar. Och det gick! Boxigt och klumpigt och fint. Detta typsnitt gör sig bäst i storformat på exempelvis A2-A1-affischer eller graffiti på en enorm vägg i ett industriområde. Material: kopieringspapper och tuschpenna.

SJÄLVPORTRÄTT-VIDEO!

HÄR KOMMER EN TILL VIDEO JAG GJORT SENASTE VECKAN!
Denna video gjordes som en del av ett arbetsprov till Stockholms Dramatiska Högskola. Jag ansökte till deras Kostymör-utbildning och kom vidare i antagningen och de ville ha en självporträttsvideo på 1 minut. Videon fick inte redigeras alls och det fick inte förekomma något tal. Så jag valde att berätta om mig själv med hjälp av endast mina pyssel-skillz. Whatya think?

BLOMKOSTYM ÅT ANDREAS ”SAX” FERRONATO

JAG HAR GJORT EN KOSTYM ÅT DJ’en OCH ARTISTEN ANDREAS FERRONATO!
Andreas och hans team ville ha en färgglad kostym inspirerad av Andreas urpsrung- Sydamerika!

Hopp hopp!

Det är akrylfärg på en svart ullkostym och var väldigt rolig att göra.


Och i bak lämnade vi en svart cirkel och skrev ”Ferronato” i ett snyggt, mjukt typsnitt.
Fina papegojor va?

När jag såg kostymen på Andreas för första gången blev jag helt paff. Va, var det SÅ mycket blommor?
Perfekt! Lagom är tråkigt, more is more när det gäller blom-tema eller hur?

Fotograferingen gjordes på Brunnsvikens Trädgård framför en enorm bambubuske.
Det var riktigt kul att fotografera då Andreas är så van att bli dokumenterad, och vädret var perfekt!
Trevlig personal på trädgården också!

Jag hoppas att Andreas ska trivas i sin nya kostym på sina spelningar!
