BBC Bitesize

I really like the hand drawn type style used above for the revision links, the rough, doodle style is perfect for the audience along with the small rough drawings in the corner of the page. I think this style suits the audience perfectly as it's like a school kid would doodle in a notebook or similar.

BBC have created a homepage with a blue and orange colour scheme- something with high impact to attract and appeal to their target audience of teens. The site also contains a chat area where teens can talk to others about work etc and also other interactive parts to the site like listening to revision and playing games appropriate to a subject. These aspects of the site are directed perfectly towards it's target audience and works well to cater for them.

Bleeding Heart

This typeface really appeals to me because of its childlike nature, yet it has something about it which keeps it appropriate to all. It is something which would be appropriate for the type of audience we are aiming at and looks like a fun, playful font despite it's name.

Brown paper

We're contemplating which stock to use for our hotdog fold, I like the look of black on the brown paper and with small doodles like this, without the creases I think it work well, we just have to ensure it is appropriate to our audience.

Green Piloww

Billy Argel

On our design boards and basically from the start we have decided on a more hand drawn, child like style of text. Keeping this consistent fits in with the theme, makes it less serious and aims the content to our specific audience. Looking at this font 'Green Piloww' we believe it suits the style of our project and would work well on a website, along with a handbook.

Eadweard Muybridge

Eadward Muybridge used multiple cameras to capture motion. Taking images one after another, with a short space of time between each, creates the idea of motion. If I were to document something like this, taking a series of phtographs I will hopefully be able to capture the same kind of idea.

Flip books

After I have taken all of my photographs I want to create either a flipbook like this or a video animation, although I would like to try to create a stop motion I really like the style of an actually flipbook. I looked into some examples just to get some ideas of how they work and how the drawings or phtographs would have to link.

What Is A Line- Tracey Emin

Looking at the this image by Tracey Emi of her bedroom in a state after relationship difficulties. It portrays it in it's true state with objects in an abject state, things that may shock it's vieweres. This is what I intend to capture with photographs of our kitchen, leaivng it in it's original state, making no ammendments to it and capturing it as it changes over time.

Imagery- School doodles

Looking into doodle art gives us an idea of the kind of imagery we want to include in our designs, this kind of hand-drawn work is ideal, the kind of things you do at school at the end of an exam when you're waiting for it to end or on your pencil case or on a notebook. Mixing different types with small pictograms and a splash of colour makes an eye-catching design and would be appropriate for our target audience of high school pupils.

Websites- This Is England

This Is England is one of my favourite films and I have visited this website a view times and loved the visuals and how interactive it is. I decided to look at this because for the current project, Communication is a virus, we are considering the possibility of producing a website.

What I like about this is it's very easy to navigate with the links down the side of the page, it has a consistent layout but yet manages to make each page indvidual with style and visuals. There is a lot of layering, almost a collage style. Also the page plays the sountrack to the fil, obviously suitable to the audience.
