Researching Materials: Tickets.

Researching tickets and promotional memorabilia for my 'Design Production: Print' project- looking at various styles, what they are promoting, size, stock and print finishes. Examples below have been sourced from online sources and sites.

A promotional, interactive design by Katya Suvorova for "any coin will help us clean the victims of oil spills"- a brief in which Greenpeace Russia wanted to help promote the charity and donations of others to help clean up the endangered birds affected by Kerchensky Strait oil leaks.
I really love this engaging, playful, yet simple design- very creative visual communication- I need to learn how to apply this metallic scratchcard print effect!

Contemporary tube ticket designs by Graphic Designer Elliott Burford- love the simple design and iconography, along with the spectral colour range. Simple, stylish, and attractive.

Another fun competitor for the Tube Ticket re-design from 'The Serif'... right to the point, and a completely necessary statement in the eyes of grumps like me. Good use of minimal colours, and the uppercase of the type directs the point in a bold, loud fashion- reflective of the message it is communicating.

An invitation for the Nottingham Trent University University Graduate Fashion Show Week, 2010- created by intern Andrew Townsend at Leicester's design studio, Un.titled. The bold typographic design boats print finishes with SpotUV gloss. A stylish and simple design- with clearly communicated information and a sophisticated and considered print finish.

A hypothetical branding and promotion design for the London 2012 Olympic games, created by designer Carl Christopher Fisk. The branding and identity printed media includes letterheads, tickets, event passes, business cards, etc.
A strong, well developed identity, the design uses a consistent colour palette (red, white and blue- representative of the United Kingdom's Union Jack flag) with various other spot colours in specialist items. Also incorporating the traditional Olympics imagery (Olympic rings/torch, etc) with simple pictograms that visually communicate particular events and sports within the games.

More creative typographic printed media for Nottingham Trent Fashion Graduate show by Un.titled intern designer, Andrew Towsend. Here, uppercase typefaces in minimal colours and combined with interesting background fills and textures (complete with laminated high gloss interior and various booklet folds) for a high impact, bold design.


Design branding by Kayla Jones for an event/convention, the fictional zombie walk and blood drive. The identity was then applied over various paraphernalia such as blood bag props- online resources, printed media, etc. A particular favourite from the branding design was the three-dimensional event tickets (second picture from the top), which communicates the zombie theme in a playful and unexpected way.
