HEROES


For our christmas project we were asked to take a self-portrait in the style of someone from history who inspires us.

I chose the X-PM Baroness Magaret Thatcher



Although i wont be defending her politics it's pretty fucking cool that for 11 years ('79 - '90) she was was the ruler of this country.


That combined with the fact that an increasing number of good friends have given me the nickname Maggie Thatcher (Margot ~ Margret ~ Maggie) we've grown to have an unspoken understanding.



MASSIVE thankyou to the Photography Department who selected my piece as the Best in Year and for the really really great Canon G10 and bottle of champagne i was awarded - expect much more & and much better photography in the future!

HOTBED SAYS BIRTHDAY!


FRUTIGER TYPE


Frutiger was designed by Adrian Frutiger for the Charles Des Gaulle Airport in 1975. The typeface is designed to be see from a distance and at speed. 


The work beneath was created in response to both the function, history & design. 


The paper planes reference both the original function of typeface as well as echoing the high design level, it does its job extremly well with out you even knowing it, and shapes you see within the individual letters.
