This was the last bomb project we had to carry out for our FMP. Considering the time constraints and what we where required to produce I am happy with the outcomes of my post cards. Through the photography and combination of typography I was able to achieve unique outcomes.
I wanted to emphasise the apocalyptic nature of the place by playing around with different hues to emphasise that eeriness of the place. Since the place really is quite barren I thought the landscape it’s self is not really something that was enough to entice people to check out the place. But by playing around with this apocalyptic theme I think it makes the images and place much more intriguing to someone that has not visited the place.
I would have liked to perhaps produce a few more post cards but the other images I was able to take were not as good quality and I didn’t feel they were consistent with the two I produced. It was a good practice for me to just be creative and produce an outcome without over thinking the design process. I had a general idea in mind of what I wanted to experiment with and I arrived at a slightly different but similar solution. As shown in my research I wanted to play around with different hue filters over landscape imagery and possibly combine images to create a collage. I didn’t end up going for the collage simply because I don’t have much experience producing them and I was happy with the outcomes I arrived at.
I do think the reddish hues and orange typography really make the images pop out enough to interest a viewer to find out more. I wanted to remain minimalistic in the amount of information on the actual postcard and as the ‘dungeness’ on its own is quite striking without interfering with the photo its self.
