Pride of Place - working with
local community.
The brief was to design display or mini exhibition showing community work of three wards in South Bristol area. Using 3 sq meter space given by the M Shed museum this stand supposed to represent Neighbourhood Partnership. Collecting and sorting out the data with members of community was the hardest part of the whole project. After that I had free hand to come up with the appropriate design. By choosing simple graphic elements and big colour space I wanted to create clean and modern look;something none would expected from bad rep council estate like Knowle West. Exhibition was a huge success and made residents proud which was the biggest achievement.
All the texts and photos were printed on the separate pieces of cardboard and fixed with velcro so they can easily be replaced. This is the final display a day before the opening of the exhibition. One person can put it up within 5 - 10 minutes and move around with no problem. Good bless cardboard!
The main artwork was divided into 8 smaller panels. Together with a detailed map of all three wards they became a background for the exchangeable info panels. To cover this quite big space of cardboard with something more then plain colour I came up with the idea of trees, birds on a wire and a man with dog. Besides additional detail they also expressed the local approach to green spaces as all three wards have lots of parks and open space.
