As part of my degree, I had to find my own freelance project, including applying for the work, having an interview and showing my portfolio. The company wanted to choose one designer to work with them in-house, on this brief:
"We are looking for our graphic designer to come up with a brand and design for a poster, DVD cover, Facebook splash page, and DVD face cover. We are looking for a style that matches that of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland with its fantasy feel to the overall poster. We would like to include some still image from the film itself such as the farm so any suggestions would be appreciated and thought through."
What a brilliant opportunity for me - I was so excited to be chosen! I had the chance to work alongside a film production company, creating an up and coming film called Mr Wiggles.
Mr Wiggles is about the imaginative distraction we all desperately desire from reality. The film takes the lives of two young children's desperate escape, into a world created for protection. But for Amber and Nathan, it's only a matter of time before reality, catches up.
Swindon's Film Makers are coming together to make this moving short film and taking you on an opportunity to strip away the outer veneer and scratch beneath the surface in order to discover the truth, opening your eyes to what is really going on around us and challenging us to see things in a different light, I created all the promotional material for film after being given a specific brief to create a mystical poster highlighting the theme and the location of the film.
