This is an image i came across for discrimination. It appears cliché, but i think its a simple and effective idea that gets the message across.

These are some maps she had produced which was part of an investigation, recording the human movement. They are screen prints created from original drawings where she traced the movement of someone in the kitchen whilst they prepared food.
She made various maps for different meals, I love how she has presented the posters in the tubes above. They look wonderful and very intriguing .
Helen had a gap year when she finished her third year because she was unsure what she wanted to do, she did apply for an MA at the Royal College of Arts. I was inspired by her decision not to give up. She decided to become a post lady so she could deliver post in the morning whilst earning money and then use the rest of the day to produce work.
I found this comforting to hear as I am sure im not the only one who is not quite sure which road to take when finishing my degree.
After her gap year she re-applied for the MA of printmaking and got a place.
One of the main things I liked about Helen was that she was interested in the in the process of making design rather then the final outcome itself.
Here are some more pieces of her work which I really like.
Hand made powerpoint presentation......based on the topic of hand made design.

I have just come across Kate Gibbs work in the book "visual thinking". I have seen her work on albums such as the Chemical brothers, Simian mobile disco and the magic number, but i did not know they was by her. She has also produced book covers for H.G Wells and worked with fasion brands including Levis, Lee and Adidas. She produces lots of one of screen prints to which you can buy through her blog......take a look there fab!!!!
I love her work, i thinks she has a really cool style, I like her compositions and the way she layers colours and imagery. Her work has a very raw cut and paste feel which I love....... great influence.

I have just read a book on photography by Susan Sontag as part of my research for my essay. I loved her book, she examines a wide range of problems, both aesthetic and moral raised by the presence and authority of the photographed image in the lives of everyone today.
large numbers of people travel out of there environment everyday, for short periods of time. It seems positively unnatural to travel for pleasure without taking a camera. I love travelling everywhere. Everything I see and do feeds my visual intelligence, and inspires me in many ways, so I always have my camera at the ready. With the click of a shutter I feel satisfied that I have captured a memory of that pacific time or place. I love taking and collecting photographs, to me they are having an interest in in things as they are, and converting an experience into an image or a souvenir.
