Not sure on gradient or solid block colour…
Another Uni Project was to design 3 separate flyers on what ever stock you wanted this only requirements was they each had to be different shapes as a broadsheet and then fold up to certain requirements also. The 3 shapes were triangle, circle and square.
For the square flyer we had to choose a type designer and advertise an exhibition in a London Gallery of our choice. I choose Swiss Type Designer Max Miedinger and his Typeface Helvetica. Only two spot colours were to be utilized throughout the design of this flyer and it was only allowed to be folded twice. This is the end result-
The specifications for the triangluar shaped flyer was that it had to utilize colour and geometric shapes. We had to choose an existing company that produced bottled products and think of another use based on the shape and aesthetic qualities of the bottle. I chose Lynx and renamed it Kynx which is fictional company I made up that specialised in car polish and wax. I thought that it fitted the bottle shape and qualities quite nicely. The end flyer folds up into a 3d pyramid shape so choice of stock was important. Heres the end results-

Finally the third flyer which was the circular shape consisted of choosing a company from the FTSE100 and advertising a product they sold to a new and fresh audience. I choose Tesco and the Yorkie chocolate bar but re thinking its original campaign and advertising it to girls only, challenging its initial ideas and design. Colour had to be chose carefully and ‘soft’ visul qualities had to be applied. Again this could only be folded a maximum of two times. Heres what I did-
Janine Antoni (born January 19, 1964, in Freeport, Bahamas) is a contemporary artist and sculptor whose work focuses mostly on process. She often uses her whole body or different parts of it, such as her mouth, hair, eyelashes, and brain as tools and with them performs everyday activities to create her artwork.
She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College with a BA, and from the Rhode Island School of Design with an MFA in 1989. She was a 1998 MacArthur Fellow. She is a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow.
In her work Gnaw (1992) Antoni uses her mouth and the activity of eating or chewing to carve two 600 lb (300 kg) cubes, one made of chocolate, the other of lard, and then used the chewed out bits to create chocolate boxes and lipstick tubes, which she then displayed in a mock store front. In this work and others, Antoni often confronts issues such as materiality, process, the body, cultural perceptions of femininity, and her art historical roots.
In Loving Care (1992) Antoni uses her hair as a paintbrush and Loving Care hair dye as her paint. Antoni dips her hair in a bucket of hair dye and mops the gallery floor on her hands and knees and in the process pushes the viewers out of the gallery space. Once again, in this process Antoni explores the body, as well as themes of power, femininity, and the style of abstract expressionism.
Tableaux vivants is another form of creation that Antoni has been described as utilizing. In her installation Slumber (1994) Antoni sleeps in the gallery. While she sleeps, an EEG machine records her REM patterns, which she then weaves into a blanket under which she sleeps. This particular work is seen as a tableau vivant because of the spectacle aspect of it.
The aspirational focus of this tableau vivant, while situating the artist as an object on view, simulataneously insists on an aesthetics of connections: between the artist and beholders, between the artists and the art institutions, and between the artist’s conscious and unconscious processes.
Antoni is still an active member of the art world.

Louise Bourgeois is one of the world’s most respected sculptors. Over a long career she has worked through most of the twentieth century’s avant-garde artistic movements from abstraction to realism, yet has always remained uniquely individual, powerfully inventive, and often at the forefront of contemporary art.
