Heres some photos of our screen printed patterns, some of the areas were not printed perfectly due to the way the screen was set up but we think the texture makes its look so much more like the look we wanted to acheive! Now we need to make real life size objects which would go in the real life windows, for example anchor, whale, boat, clouds, rain drops, treasure chest using the screen printed patterns!
This was our first set design that we made. This was made from printed textures and shows the 3
windows as one scene, this shown how our windows would work togther as a
continuous theme and scene, and the kind of simple shapes we would
used. It also shown how the white outlines would make our images look
within the window display.
Today we had a proper look at our research and discussed ideas of style of illustration based on our research ideas. We decided that patterns would be used within most objects in our window displays, but all objects would have white outlines, the white outlines would give it that retro feel, we also decided the patterns would be screen printed as we really wanted to add that textured look to our patterns, as we would firstly be creating them on illustrator which we both felt was a little too clinical. Heres the kind of textured look we wanted to achieve:
We discussed the idea that we would maybe use a border, although we realise we may not be able to create our border in time for the deadline, but the idea works without it, so we will try our best to get as must done as possible, we started looking at borders and decided if we were to create this in time, it would be of shapes relating to our theme.
We also decided we needed to look at what the shop sold and if the kind of toys they well were suitable for the theme we were going to create within their windows. We learnt of the shops layout and worked out that our scene we were planning on creating would spread across the 3 windows. We started to sketch some more ideas, which again, we agreed on straight away. Aswell as seeing the shop, we had a look at the toys they sold, and agreed that although it was important there would be places for the toys to be, we didn't want to design our windows around specific toys featured in the shop as what they have their now, they may not have by the time we were going to actually create the window design (if we were to 'win').
