The brief was to create a series of typographic murals to paint on the walls of the newly moved Salford University music department. We decided to focus on famous Salfordians from the 80’s and Factory Records to depict in a typographic style.
In the pieces we have used bold colours to contrast the people and the times from which they came to prominence, the colours also work well together to help our pieces stand out. The fonts that we have chosen for our Factory pieces are in keeping with the type used at the time but with a modern twist.
We have also decided to create a small book to help show bits of our development and snippets of our final pieces, in the book we have chosen a grey scale colour scheme to contrast with our colourful final pieces. The book is simply called Adelphi as that’s where our typographic murals will be placed.
Overall we are happy with our outcomes for the brief, we feel that we worked well together and finished with great outcomes that would look great on the walls of the new Salford University music department.
