I Walked With a Zombie

This is a film that I have used as part of research for my Contextual essay.

It is a B&W film, made in 1943, directed by Jacques Tourneur and stars the actors Frances Dee and Tom Conway

Here are some websites that I used that helped me with my maquette designs.





Looking at other products of the similar design as mine, I have researched that to make it look more authentic, I will add some recycle and other branding text and images on the mailer box.

From the images I have taken around Wolverhampton, I have tried to sketch them. These photos show the work I have created.

These are just basic outline sketches.

Creating Thumbnails

Here a few rough sketches of thumbnails I have created for my editorial design.

Editorial Research

These are a few images of my research that I have done for my editorial folder. These are some magazines that I found and scanned. I then used tracing paper to describe the design and theme.

The newer posts that I will publish, is the work that I have produced throughout this first semester of Graphic Communication, Year 2.


Ok. I have not been using Blogger to its full potential. I am not really a social network person, and don't revolve myself around Internet websites to explain what I am constantly doing and letting everyone aware of this.

I know this Blogger account, is trying to describe what I am doing, as a student of Wolverhampton University - BUT - a big but, I mainly remind myself to do the actual physical work that is given to us. Week by week, as a student we are given work to produce and to show next week. Having other modules makes blogging simply hard.

...I shouldn't think about other students who have posted on their blog constantly, and time sufficiently, when the work is given, because everyone is different.

I really like Blogger, the more and more times I use it. It's easy, and quite fun to express and tell people what I have been doing.

Here's a promise to keep updating my Blogger constantly! *crosses fingers and toes*

Final Editorial Pages

So, I have finally done my editorial piece! It's not the best and it's not the worst either!

I have actually spent a lot of time of this, and I like the final outcome. I have tried to use a lot of ideas from research and my own knowledge of what it could look like.

...these are just a select few, of the double page spreads I have created.

Branding: My final logo and Maquettes

Below shows my final logo design. I will be using this for my Branding module.

Here are a few maquettes that I have designed, for research as part of the mailer I am creating for my Wolverhampton brand.


Here are a few micro sites that I have researched, and like very much.

Logo Ideas

I have been producing some logo designs. Some of these are quick, random ideas, and some off these I have created with my topic and research in mind.

The final 3 designs are closer to my final design.

STATUS Magazine

I have been subscribed to a magazine called STATUS for quite a while now. I have to say, its ones of the best magazines I read.

It is SO creative and the layouts are truly magical. These are a few screen shots I have taken, from an online article I have been reading.

The following link, is a direct link to its website. Feel free to explore and sign up to STATUS Magazine!

As part of the Branding in Context module, I have to rebrand the current logo of Wolverhampton.

Looking at current, old and new logos will hopefully help me what I need to create!

To help with the topic of Unemployment, I have taken a few pictures around Wolverhampton.

These will hopefully be used in my final piece.
