Final sticker designs

Our final designs have been made as vector graphics in Adobe Illustrator from our drawings and Kirigami...

Our sixth workshop. 10th July.

The last session was very busy! Each group worked really hard to finalise their designs on paper and we started to play with the designs in Adobe Illustrator. Its going to be a tough job pulling all their fantastic and diverse designs into one cohesive one! :)

Jane from LEAN also visited us to record interviews with the students to get their feedback on how its all gone.

Our fifth workshop. 30 June. Roots Group.

in this project i found it very fun and enjoyable because we work as a group and we get to go out and enjoy the nice view of deptford. Also we got to find more about deptford's history.


Our fifth workshop. 30 June. Mini-Verse Group.

our design idea was a ribbon turning into water, the bad thing about the final design is that it can't be more than one colour or shaded but instead we could have the water and ribbon in stips so the detail can still be there, hopefully more than one colour can be used. looking at our idea if you had to imagine it on a wall it looks really good and lively.


Our fifth workshop. 30 June. Bomb Group.

As the other group has said, our project is about creating a design to be used for the Deptford X Art Festival. So far we've completed several brainstorms, sketched out ideas for elements of our design, experimented with kirigami and gone on a small outing to Deptford High Street, sketching and taking photos to get inspiration for our design from the area - as well as designing our own paper houses to get a feel of our own personal elements we could include.

Our fifth workshop. 30 June. Leaf Group.

Our group have been looking at leaves, and relating it to Deptford in creative ways. We have found many different ways of exploring leaves and have come up with several designs for this project. We are using our imaginations to develop a wide range of sources. This has been an intresting project as in art, you usally work alone.

Hated the church - didn't want to be there.
Atmosphere - noise, sounds, wind - hectic!

Calm of the church.
Horrible smell, trampy.
Looking up at buildings for first time - history - design - carvings.
Different textures.

Different shapes - not everything a straight line.
Looking up at designs on church.
Shapes of buildings - 3D.

Our fourth workshop. 23 June.

We went for a walk down Deptford High Street to think and experience it in ways we might not have before. We looked at interesting shapes and patterns to help inspire our ideas for the stickers; and we all photographed, sketched, or noted down at least one visual thing, one sound, and one smell. Here are some of our photos...
