Lighting Up The Turner Prize

Friday, 19 November 2010

Here's an ambitious typographical project from one of my NC Graphics students, Jonathan Walton.

The brief was to produce a single A3 poster advertising the Turner Prize 2010 Exhibition (currently showing at Tate Britain), but once Jonathan had settled on a concept, he produced a set of three linked posters echoing Martin Creed's notorious 2001 winning piece 'The Lights Go On and Off'.

Jonathan has two further years of study in which to gain his HND, and then take a final year at University, or move straight into the industry. The latter looks like a distinct possibility based on his current work.

The posters:

TurnerLight 2


The final layout:
