In mid February, I decided it would be a good idea to tackle a brief by YCN about creating physical packaging for Google's range of packaging. It was a terrible idea. The brief was so tough because it seemed completely useless to package a brand that works so well in the online world. However, never one to give up, I eventually decided to take a less serious approach. This was great because I got to dress Jonathan up like a right tool.
Like the Google products featured online, Google Boy is designed to provide a service. He does everything that Google do, but in a more personal way. As a vehicle for showing off Google Boy, I created a brochure with photographs and testimonials. However there is the added notion of telling people that no matter how great he is, Google Boy can't do it all himself and that we should do our bit to help him by using Google's products online instead.
I've been fairly busy working up to my final ever university deadline and I've had several projects that have all come together just at the end. Included in this list is Celebrity Matches.
This is a game created by my tutor Sue Platt and as soon as I heard about it, I decided that I'd love to make it a real thing. The aim of the game is to draw celebrities using matchsticks. It's like pictionary for alcoholics and pyromaniacs.
I had a lot of fun working with specialist printing techniques. The boxes have been screen printed in 4 different colours including fluorescent red and each one has been foil blocked with a gold match.
As extras, I designed a series of beer mat advertisements and and an app that allows people to upload their drawings and guess others from across the world.
