OUGD503 - Responsive - Individual Practice - Batsford Prize 2016

I came came across this brief in college on one of the packed notice boards. It caught my eye due to the nature of the poster, I saw it and thought that it looked similar to some of my recent work. I spoke to Simon about possibly doing this brief for part one of responsive, and he said it would definitely be valid and worth entering. He raised the important point that this sort of brief may be more interesting to approach with a collaborator, someone from either illustration or animation and I did agree. This project would not be overly ambitious to undertake on my own, however the results could be more aesthetically interesting if I were to collaborate with a fellow creative student. I will see how I feel, I have got a long time to complete work for this brief so I have time to decide whether or not I want to collaborate.
