Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow Campaign
Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow is the title of my senior thesis project. It is a visual campaign I researched and designed to promote awareness for audio preservation. I purposely designed this campaign in grayscale to lower the production costs (Specifically regarding print) that would theoretically arise if I were to try to implement this campaign on a wider scale. All of the imagery of musicians included in this campaign belongs to the public domain.
I researched, designed, printed, and French-bound the campaign book, which served as my thesis paper. The research portion of this project lasted the entire Fall semester of my senior year, while the design, printing, and binding of the book took place during the Spring semester.
I produced two Pubic Service Announcement style videos using AfterEffects CS5 for the video component of the campaign. The song I chose to include is "Midnight Indigo" by Duke Ellington, none of the rights to which I own.
The exhibit I designed and built was part of an end-of-the-year senior gallery show my class organized. The physical dimensions of the exhibit were approximately 6.5'x4.5'x5'. I built the exhibit in its entirety, including assembling the large slabs of wood that served as the exhibit walls. The two larger white circles feature laser-cut, hand-painted and hand-glued chipboard text. The smaller circles feature high-quality prints that I glued to chipboard. As takeaway pieces, I provided small circular chips that featured laser-engraved audio preservation facts.
The website component was the last component for this project. Due to time constraints, the only requirement for this portion was that a Photoshop comp be completed in time for the senior gallery show. Below is my completed comp.
