Project Twelve: Modernism Manifesto

In between all of the projects this term we've also had various lectures. One series consisting of current working graphic designers and their work, telling how they got to where they are etc. They've been extremely interesting and informative. People such as The Brooklyn BrothersUsed Magazine and others have been greatly informative and encouraging. However, we've also had an entire lecture series on modernism, basically design from the early 1920's through the sixties. Although the lecture series has been far from informative or engaging, the subject is fascinating and we had to find a subject we were interested in and do a 700 word manifesto (essay) and use InDesign to create an A2 poster to display it on. Seeing as I have a fascination in film, I decided to do mine on that. I watched a few modernistic filmmakers such as...

Fritz Lang's Metropolis...


Busby Berkeley...


And Leni Riefenstahl...


All incredible filmmakers. So I did a couple tests...




And eventually ended up with this...



Simple, clear... That's what I wanted. Black and white reflecting the film of the time, three stills that reflect the three filmmakers I focused on. Not much else to say! Till next time...
