COMMERCIAL DESIGN 11: PICTOGRAMS


In the 1930's a fella named Otto Neurath developed what he thought was an alternative to text, a universal language of graphic iconography that he called ISOTYPE (International system of typographic picture education.  His intent was, through a graphic vocabulary and improved visual literacy, to develop a universally understood pictoral language free of national and linguistic borders. He actually succeeded in this frankly utopian idea to the point that the Pictogram (as it is sometimes called) is an integral part of communication within our global culture and almost completely ignored by its users.

Our own intrepid Commercial Design class, through the use of pictograms, has taken it upon themselves to remind us, the community members of these hallowed halls, of some of our most important (and oft forgotten) rules.  Please take a moment to reacquaint yourself with these, sometimes self-evident, guidelines.

LALS LIFE SKILLS : ABSTRACT PAINTINGS

Our LALS class made these beautiful abstract paintings by first drawing a big swirls with brush and India ink, and then filling in the white spaces. They had to mix all colours they used, exploring the way colours combine to make new colours. They also focused on improving their brush techniques. I love how unique each of the paintings turned out, reflecting the personalities of the artist.

POINT GREY PHOTOGRAPHY PRESENTS: PRESENCE


The work selected for this exhibit revolves around the idea of anonymity. 

The characters within the images have no names, they are not persons; they are simply there.  Characters in a scene, available for imprinting with our own ideas, our own stories.  In some of the images we ourselves are the character, the anonymous witness.  We are present. 

The images ask you to explore suggested narratives through your own participation.  No answers are given, only questions.
