Vanishing Type

Ive developed a visual technique where by staring at the top word will make the word below slowly disappear.

Focus on guns and lives will disappear after a few seconds

Focus on Love and Hate will disappear after a few seconds

Focus on Knowledge and Ignorance will disappear after a few seconds

Focus on Money and Integrity will disappear after a few seconds

I have recently teamed up with the very talented photo journalist Conor Ashleigh to design a photo book for him. 

 

Conor, 27, is a visual storyteller from Newcastle, Australia. Since the age of 16, he has been involved in social justice, using his camera to document and share the stories of marginalised communities. Recently he's worked in Myanmar, Timor-Leste and South Sudan.

 

Conor has worked on assignments and been published in The New York Times, International Herald Tribune, Le Monde, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, Moncole, Sydney Morning Herald, and The Australian, amongst others. With his strong foundation in community development, he regularly works on humanitarian assignments for development agencies and NGOs including The World Bank, The Asia Foundation, ACIAR, Red Cross, SOS Children’s Village and UNICEF.

You can find more of Conor's work ( which I think is amazing ) on his website www.conorashleigh.com

I wanted these to work on two levels. On one level they use popular logos features and meanings to spell out famous quotes from Shakespeare but on a deeper level they take a look at life in the 21st century, how we interact our values and consumption. Richard III "A horse a horse my kingdom for a horse" looks at how we see luxury items such as sports cars as status symbols and having a fulfilled life once we have them. In reality a fulfilled life comes from other means and owning or having a sports car is just fantasy that doesn't or wont fulfil you in the long run. Romeo & Juliet looks at how that as a result of modern media and the ever increasing wages of reality stars and sports stars people concentrate on and seek money as an attraction rather than knowledge or culture or personality. Hamlet looks at how we live our modern life through social media, be it posting work on Behance or pictures on Instagram and then seek approval on weather they are good or not on the amount of "likes" they receive. Twelfth Night looks at modern consumption. Streaming music, fast food and love online... because they are so easy to hand we tend to over indulge, judge people on an image and the value of the personal touch and craft has been lost. We want it now or not at all.

MONDAY

I've used blocks of colour to represent F1 teams and the amount of world tiles they have one.

Three colour Star Wars characters

I wanted to break Star Wars characters down into 3 colours and represent something about their charater which some geometric shapes.

I wanted to see if brands are so engrained in our psyche that I could simplify them and they would still be recognizable.

Farmer Giles is a friend of mine who wholesales  meat products ( mainly english style sausages ) from Pacdon Park. I wanted it to look modern with traditional touches of a village butchers.

The blue is used to reflect the blue of a quality meat stamp and the red just looked pretty killer with it.
