17th July 2009
After being inspired by the first 2009 semi-permanent book that DesignIsKinky released I have submitted five artworks to hopefully get included. The following quote is the email I sent them.
I really loved the first 2009 book and it inspired me to want to be included in a next book, hence here now is my submission. Attached is my 5 submissions for the second 2009 book, all to specified sizes. Three files are saved as 72ppi jpg. The gif file shows a stroked line which is the bounding box the rest is there as a 5mm bleed. I feel as though I must mention the last file: it is just a jpg but the actual design has been printed A1, mounted and exhibited at the University of the Sunshine Coast Art Gallery in June-July 2009 (student exhibit) and will also be exhibited in a different show in Gympie in October.
My name is: Kassandra Bowers
Thanks for looking at my designs.”
This is me having a go at air brushing to the extreme but keeping in touch with reality. I have added nail polish, eye shadow and lipstick. This contains an skin texture brush from keepwaiting.
This is a photograph of a flower that has been composed so that the pollen is on the top left hand rule of third intersection. The image is unedited except the text stating it is Fig 1 and that it is unedited. The camera lens is literally inside the flower.
This is my final A1 poster for ADN214: Visual Identity and Exhibition Design. There is more information about it at this page: Urban Typography by Kassandra Bowers. This is the submission mentioned earlier as being exhibited in an art gallery.
This is something that I created especially for the book (the other things are all adapted from somewhere else). The stuff outside of the stroked line is the bleed. The fun thing about keeping a blog is seeing things connect as: something for semi-permanent has already been changed since its original blog entry.
This was the back cover for the ISM (Independent Student Magazine from the University of the Sunshine Coast) I worked on page layout and graphic design for the COMMERCIALISM issue. This was the back cover that I made from photographs I took in 2005. I was surprised after I got back to the Sunshine Coast after being in Darwin for 13 months to find that these patches of grass are now covered in concrete and structures. This has been edited since the original back cover. I sadly didn’t pick up on a typo and 10 000 copies were sent out with the 2005 saying 2008 (which didn’t make sense and was picked up on by a few of my university friends).
