Fifa 2010 PropaG Poster

Well here is my propaganda poster design for our Creative Design class. I chose the Fifa 2010 one as you can see, and am fairly happy with the result but also mildly unsure...?

Maybe cause a few people don't get it, but i suppose that means they just gota stay in touch with the news in the world a bit more.

It's a good feeling though to have the first brief near completion well into the second week of College.

I found this website quite awhile ago and thought i'd share it with you, i think it's really pretty which to say the least is an understatement...

local isn't lekker

Ok, so I've been doing some thinking as to what I'm really trying to say with the propoganda posters that we have to design, and I think I'm gona take the slant of showing the 2010 SA Fifa WC in a negative light (being the anger and dissapointment felt by South Africans caused by our country importing products from overseas, instead of supporting local communities, etc.).

As a result my campaing of sorts will be about supporting local brands/communities/companies.

Now the two ideas that I feel would communicate my message well are either the "from pissed off to kick off" one or the "proudly imported" one. The first I suppose is looking more at the upset caused by importing products and the result of which, and the second is focusing more on the country that we are importing from.

Anys, if you have any comments or thoughts that you'd like to share with me, please feel free to do so...

a new birth

2nd day back at CityVarsity 2010, and already a new task has been set...create a blog.
An easy enough task you might say, but as the year goes on I'm sure our pink-gray-matter-stuffs will do well to forget we even started this.

Memory failure aside, I welcome you to my blog and hope that this year offers more than enough posts filled with amaZING inspirational sumthings!
