ITD:character- combine and animal and a mode of transport?

Bit of an on odd brief this week, we have to combine a mode of transport and an animal, I did some brainstorming but one of my earlyest ideas remained my favourite the Segway Bear, I thought this would be a great opportunity to revisit my circus Brief from first year, which I was disappointed with. So here is the one...the only...BANJO....

Emotion Board of Banjo

We were required to show them in four states of emotion, as fallows...



I also made a stand up puppet, he's animated too.
A very fun brief all in all.

ITD: stamps

New Brief to create a series of four stamps based on a State.
This was a bit of a doozie, two week brief, I wanted to use cut out something about the format of a stamp really appealed to my cut out frame of mind....which made me thing states of mind, staes of emotion.

the concept behind these stamps is that the sender would by this stamps as pre-cursa to the contannt of the letter inside i.e. if you were sending a birthday card or informing someone of a wedding you would use a euphoric stamp.

Furious: "I'm angry!" possibly a over due bill
Melancholy:"Bad news" your ill.
Affection:"I <3 you" for a love letter x
Euphoric:"SO VERY HAPPY!" for good news.

All in all pretty pleased with these. They went down well.
There testament to a simple idea and clear design winning out on the day!

Maybe I should try that out more.
