Amanda Levete’s Timber Wave

24th ∙ May ∙ 2011

Winner of the V&A’s recent international competition to design a new courtyard and underground extension.

Amanda Levete Architects AL_L designed this red oak entwined wood lattice entrance piece for the V&A on Cromwell Road. I find it intriguing to look at.

Take a look yourselves!

So the feedback was really good on the designs.

and what have we learnt today kids?
Well I have totally learnt that 2D is just as important as 3D and needs as much attention as 3D pieces.  When developing graphic for a product, branding or logo it really does work in stages similar to developing a 3D product.

1.  Brainstorming and gathering inspiration and specification for design
2.  Filtering through to begin initial stage 1 of design
3.  Developing designs further to initial design stage 2.
4.  To initial design stage 3 – narrowing down the designs for final design
5.  Final design produced

Please note these stages are just my opinion and could need developing and tweaking on.

Although I develop websites and produce illustrations, I always have had projects which start from scratch – taking the art direction where I felt was most suitable.  Producing ideas from existing products is something which is more complex than you would think.  It is all about the existing brand and the values which that brand is already associated with, then turning this around to create something which keeps within the brand but takes a different turn in style or present day audiences.

Really has got my mind bubbling with ideas and ways to gather inspiration.
Do you have stages which you follow when designing?

All comments and crits welcome.

Play with your food!

18th ∙ June ∙ 2010

Food Art!
an unusually thing but a thing that happens. a child playing with their food, a teenager becoming fussy in what they eat or even when your on a date and your pretty bored!
Everyone at one stage in their life has played with their food.

When I was young I loved mashed potato, I really did. When I came back from school I was ready to eat my mash potato and even got into making little models out of it! castles and faces and then adding food colourings! I now wish I took some photos.

and the reason for this post?
well… I am in the middle of a food course and one of the topics is Play With Your Food – which involve making something out of food. I think I know what i might just do mine on. But in the mean while here are some other yummies or not so yummies, to tickle you taste buds.
