Advice from my parents
The is a personal project that I set myself. Throughout my life I have always kept a note of my parents advice. I decided to turn this into a project which showcases some of the advice. I wanted it to look unlike other work I have done before and to have a hands on appearance to it.
I began by researching ransom notes, and how this idea was taken into the rock/ punk era through album covers, particularly in the Sex Pistols album designs. This lead me to cutting up magazines and newspapers and putting my own letters together and scanning them in. I paired this with illustrations, photos and textured paper to complete the book. This is a very personal project and really enjoyed how hands on this project was, and how different it is to others.
