This is my logo for the Liverpool Tate online exhibition 'Composition.' During research I realised Patti Smith mainly used sans-serif typefaces for her identity on both her website and album artwork. Robert Mapplethorpe used serif typefaces for his. For the logo, to show their collaboration I then combined both a sans-serif typeface and a serif typeface together.
This is my poster to promote the online exhibiton. I experimented a lot with arranging my text in a grid structure. My concept for this piece is based on Patti Smith's "Memorial Tribute." This tribute was dedicated to Mapplethorpe just before his death. It features the word 'emerald' a lot, which is to do with his green eyes. It declares how much she wished he could stay, and shows their strong relationship. I cropped images of both the artists to just show their eyes, I then composed them in order of time. The first images are of when they were younger, and the final images of Mapplethorpe are from the year before his death.
