  3. 3. Assessment 1 – Industry Research Project Part A – Researching your industry Nature of task: Research Project Word count: 500 Required • You are required to complete Progress challenge 1. • Integrate any peer and formative feedback into finalised version. Recommended • Complete all activities. • Engage in forum discussion. Summary • Save your final work as a PDF for final submission. Activity Progress challenge 1: Researching your industry For this task you are required to conduct research into a design company within the field you wish to work in (e.g. a fashion magazine). You may conduct your research entirely from information online, but you may like to set up a meeting or start email correspondence with a representative from that company to acquire some of the facts needed to write this report. You must write a short response to all of the following questions: • What is the name of the company you are researching? Within which industry to they fall? Why did you choose this company over similar companies within this industry? • Who is the director/head of the company? Where did they work previous to this role, and when did they begin this role? • What are the other roles within this company, and who currently fills them? What is their background, and for how long have they filled this position? • What is the common pathway that these current employees took to gain their roles at this company? Did they all start out as interns, or does this company only hire designers with five years or more experience? • Are there any current vacancies? Propose a strategy that you could implement to gain these positions. • Does this company participate in any industry events, like conferences, talks or seminars? If so, where and when?
  4. 4. Answer The Company It is not purely a design company but I chose the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Commission). I would classify this industry under Media (i.e. mass media, broadcasting) – this may include coverage of a variety of topics like the performing arts, music, sport, education, and advertising. I have a myriad three main reasons for choosing the ABC: 1. Firstly, it has educational value; 2. Secondly, I believe the network attracts people who want to work in the arts and media; 3. Thirdly, I could also choose other broadcasting networks - SBS, Channel 9, Fox – however, the ABC’s influence has been the most profound because I of the shows I used to watch and the music I used to listen to.

  6. 6. Assessment Part B – Legal issues relevant to your practice Nature of task: Research Project Word count: 300 Required • You are required to complete Progress challenge 2. • Integrate any peer and formative feedback into finalised version. Recommended • Complete all activities. • Engage in forum discussion. Summary • Save your final work as a PDF for final submission. Activity Progress challenge 2: Legal issues relevant to your practice For this you will need to write a short report detailing the legal requirements you will need to take into account while creating work in your industry. Create a short report that answers the following questions: • Consider your chosen industry from Progress challenge 1. What are the legal requirements you must adhere to in your ideal graphic design role? Are there any that are specific to your industry (e.g. fashion)? List at least five key points. • What does your current work practice consist of? Describe your current work environment and outline steps in which you will work towards creating a (legally) safer working environment and an environmentally sustainable professional practice. • Consider the concept of intellectual property discussed in the unit, what steps should you take to safeguard your own work? How can you respect the IP of other artists within your own practice? SELF-CHECK - Submission A Now that you have completed the progress challenge, you may submit your work for feedback and discussion. Answer Part 1 I came across a position with the ABC, where I will most likely work on a contract basis (advertised as a ‘freelance’ job), c/o The
  7. 7. Loop10 . This position requires me to understand the ABC’s own policies and procedures, including: ‘…the ABC’s aims, objectives and workplace values, together with relevant policies and guidelines including Editorial Policies11 , Child Protection Policy12 , Equity and Diversity13 , WH&S14 ’. It also requires me to understand the law in Papua New Guinea15 (part of the time spent on the job is in Port Moresby). Additionally, I should have some knowledge about the Papuans and their values and traditions. Should I get this opportunity to work in PNG, it would mean both knowing how to protect myself as a woman living and working there and trying to accurately portray what life is like, particularly for the women and children there16 . Part 2 Whether I remain in Australia Post, change jobs or start my practice, the WH&S Act applies in any case. If freelancing, I would have to draw up some kind of agreement between the client and myself17 . 10 Australian Broadcasting Corporation (2017): Jobs & Portfolio, in The Loop, https://www.theloop. com.au/ABC/overview[7/03/2017 2:06:16 AM] 11 ustralian Broadcasting Corporation (2016): About the ABC – Our Editorial Policies, http://about. abc.net.au/how-the-abc-is-run/what-guides-us/our-editorial-policies/[7/03/2017 2:45:15 AM] 12 Australian Broadcasting Corporation (2016): Section 8 – Children and Young People (page 10), in Code of Practice 2011 (Revised in 2016), http://about.abc.net.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/ ABCCodeOfPractice2016-1.pdf 13 Australian Broadcasting Corporation (2016): ABC Equity and Diversity Plan – 2016-2018, http:// about.abc.net.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/EquityDiversityPLN2016-18_V1_0.pdf 14 Federal Register of Legislation (2011): Work Health and Safety Act, https://www.legislation.gov. au/Series/C2011A00137[8/03/2017 2:03:51 AM] 15 Wikipedia (2016): Law of Papua New Guinea, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_Papua_ New_Guinea 16 Papua New Guinea Human Rights Library (2017): Archive, https://archive.org/details/papuane wguineahumanrightslibrary[8/03/2017 2:44:41 AM]; and Jolly, M, Stewart, C, and Brewer, C (2012): Engendering Violence in Papua New Guinea, in ANU E-Press, https://ia600705.us.archive.org/12/ items/EngenderingViolenceInPNG/Engendering_violence_in_PNG.pdf 17 Picciafuoco, V (2017): Designers: Know Your Rights! 4 Must-Have Clauses In A Contract, in Hongkiat.com, http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/design-contract-clauses/[6/03/2017 6:55:44 PM] Part 3 Copyrights – again, the exact Copyright law or policy will vary according to where I work, who is my employer or what kinds of work the law applies to18 . 18 Intellectual Property Australia (2017): Home Page, https://www.ipaustralia.gov.au/[6/03/2017 6:58:19 PM]
  8. 8. Assessment Part C – Researching trends Nature of task: Research Project Word count: 200 Required • You are required to complete Progress challenge 3. • Integrate any peer and formative feedback into finalised version. Recommended • Complete all activities. • Engage in forum discussion. Summary • Save your final work as a PDF for final submission. Activity Progress challenge 3: Researching Trends This challenge will help you research and apply graphic design trends that are specific to your chosen industry. • Create a collaged inspiration board, either by hand and scanned-in, or using Photoshop. The images and text you use should reflect the current local and global trends within your specific industry. You must source each image using at least two of both formal and informal research strategies and label each as such. You must communicate your labelling system – e.g. each image formally sourced will be marked with a red dot, and each image informally sourced will be marked with a green dot. • Find an example of an artist/designer that inspires you. Create a timeline of how their work has evolved over the last 10 years with images. Write a short response about each design describing the current industry trends featured globally at the time of their design. • Using this same artist, find at least three designs of theirs that you can see have a connection or were influenced by other kinds of creative professionals. Include images and a short response for each image. For example: ‘I found an image of Victoria Beckham’s current collection, the motif of triangles was heavily featured throughout each piece in the collection. This may be in response to indie musical artists such as Grimes who feature triangles in their album covers and within their fashion choices.’
  9. 9. Answer Part A Inspiration Board – Symbols I chose The All-Seeing Eye – the modern use of this symbol (The Eye of Providence) is most heavily associated with the Freemasons and the Illuminati. However, David Percival (of the Conscious Reporter) states that the symbols’ origins date back even further19 . (42 words). 19 Percival, D (2014): The All-Seeing Eye: Sacred Origins of a Hijacked Symbol, in The Conscious Reporter http://consciousreporter.com/conspiracy-against-consciousness/corruption-sacred- symbols-all-seeing-eye/[8/01/2017 12:06:32 AM] Part B Inspiration – an artist who uses this symbol (Nickelodeon) They have used the all-seeing eye in their cartoons20 . (10 words) 20 Illuminati Symbols (2017): Nickelodeon All-Seeing Eye Pyramid http://illuminatisymbols.info/ nickelodeon-all-seeing-eye/
  10. 10. In particular, there is a depiction of the All-seeing Eye in SpongeBob Square-pants21 . The name of this episode is the Toy Store of Doom22 . The original creator of SpongeBob Square-pants was Stephen Hillenberg – an artist and marine biologist (this probably explains his love of sea life)23 .

  11. 11. the Eye of Providence. (17 words). The people involved in its design were Benjamin Franklin, J Adams and Thomas Jefferson assisted by the artist Pierre Eugène Du Simitière25 . Du Simitière was an accomplished portrait painter and had designed the state seals for Delaware and Virginia. The symbolism not only pays homage to Freemasonry but to Judaism as well - if you look closely at the Treasury Seal (on the right hand side of the US $1 bill), you will find a Star of David directly above the Eagle. This represents Haym Salomon, who helped financed the American side of the War of Independence (against Britain).

  12. 12. Another connection - Disney Another artist working for Nickelodeon, Jeff ‘Swampy’ Marsh also worked for Disney26 and for Fox studios27 . (17 words). (Total = 244 words [Sorry, it is a bit over, I know]). J 26 From what I heard, Disney was also a Freemason. See Karg, B, and Young, JK (2009): 101 Secrets of the Freemasons, in Amazon.com, https://www. amazon.com/dp/1440503788/ref=rdr_ext_tmb; for more information. Whatever the case is, it is still an amazing coincidence that Disney also made a film called ‘101 Dalmatians’? Need I say more? 27 Wikipedia (2017): Jeff ‘Swampy’ Marsh, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Jeff_%2522Swampy%2522_Marsh?oldid=758842033
  13. 13. Assessment Part D – Applying trends to your design Nature of task: Research Project Word count: 300 Required • You are required to complete Progress challenge 4. • Integrate any peer and formative feedback into finalised version. Recommended • Complete all activities. • Engage in forum discussion. Summary • Save your final work as a PDF for final submission. Activity Progress challenge 4: Applying trends to your design In the previous unit we learnt about trend development, this Progress challenge will help you apply emerging trends to your own designs. Answer the following questions: • Make your own ‘hot or not’ trend board that explores trends in your industry area over the last two to three years. Label each image with the year of their debut, and the source of the image, and then make three lists outlining trend elements under ‘past’, ‘present’ and ‘emerging’ trends. • Extrapolate on the emerging trends you discovered making your trend board in part a. What kinds of colour, line and styles have changed? What kinds of new skillsets would you have to develop to match these new elements? It might be a more advanced understanding of traditional media, like watercolours, or a digital method to replicate this look in Photoshop? • Identify a specific element from the emerging trends list you have made previously and make an attempt to create an image that incorporates this element. Detail your working and how you got on with creating this image. What was easy to work out? What was more challenging? Identify tools or skills you will need to develop to further master this trend element. Answer This is what was ‘Hot’ and what was ‘Not’ in 2014 (when I started this course).
  14. 14. By Colleen Sedgwick (E0501145) For Fundamentals of Design (D0116) What has been ‘trending’ in the last few years from 2012 to now (2014)? Keith Bryant28 , Jason Cranford Teague29 , and Paula Borowska30 all have this to say: Hot Large Fonts; Mixing and Matching with weights and styles; Return of the slab serif and other ‘vintage styles’; Low contrast text; Blurred Backgrounds; Simple colours; Handwritten fonts (apart from Comic Sans, which is supposedly ‘so last century’J); Not Poor quality images; extended forms 28 Keith Bryant (2012): Current Web Typography Trends in http://blog.fonts.com/2012/02/07/10- web-typography-trends-to-watch-in-2012/ (accessed Friday 6th June at 3:11:24 PM) 29 Jason Teague (2012): 10 Web Typography Trends to watch for in http://blog.fonts. com/2012/02/07/10-web-typography-trends-to-watch-in-2012/ (accessed Friday 6th June at 3:11:24 PM) 30 Paula Borowska (2014): Coming and going trends in 2014 in http://designmodo.com/web- design-trends-2014/ and http://designmodo.com/web-typography-2013/ (accessed Friday, 6 June 2014 at 3:34:44 PM) Are these styles still ‘in’? Let us see. Stuart Chapman of The Big Picture outlined five major trends in packaging that where ‘hot’ back in 201431 : 1. The ‘machined’ look (Anastasia Vodka); 2. Art Deco revived (Tanquerary Ten); 3. Drawn Freeform (Absolut, 3R Tequila); 4. Monochrome (Black Vodka; Lock, Stock & Barrel Whisky); 5. Black Magic (3 Howls; Coven Vodka; The Empiric Gin) 31 Chapman, S (2014): 5 big trends in spirits packaging for 2014 in Creative Bloq, http://www. creativebloq.com/branding/trends-spirits-packaging-2014-31410896
  15. 15. In other words, Skeuomorphic, hand-drawn designs and the vintage look were very popular three years’ ago (especially for packaging), but are they still popular today? Tom May of Creative Bloq outlined five biggest graphic design trends of 201632 : 1. Typographic Deconstruction (Pentagram for the London Design Festival); 2. Simplification (Ministry of Sound); 3. Intense and Heightened Colours (Wolff Olin); 4. Big Brand-mark Revival (Co-op); 5. Automation (Sensei). In other words, deconstruction, simplification, bright colours and ‘retro’ were all go last year. What is likely for this year? Franklin Till outlines these 10 design ideas for this year in 201733 : 1. Code Craft – items from familiar objects (Bastion de Nennie); 2. Future food (Space 10); 3. Digi-real (Lucy Hardcastle); 4. Waste-Free manufacturing (Will H Yates Johnson); 5. Realistic Realism (Sandy Suffield); 6. New Materials (Nike); 7. None more Black (Levi van Velaw); 8. Fake Brands (Dubai+); 9. Back to Basics (Soylent); 10. Augmented Reality (Kailu Guan). 32 May, T (2016): 5 Big Graphic Design Trends of 2016, http://www.creativebloq.com/features/5- big-graphic-design-trends-of-2016 33 Till, F (2017): Top 10 Design Trends for 2017, in http://www.creativebloq.com/inspiration/10-top- design-trends-for-2017 Other possible trends for 2017? My predictions for ‘hot’: 1. Inclusivity: Nike is introducing the hijab34 and clothes for ‘plus-sized’ women35 into its product ranges (and helps capture ‘new markets’). 2. Back to basics and ‘none more black’ – when has ‘basic black’, realism and minimalism ever been out? 3. The new materials (for Nike’s shoes); 4. Augmented Reality (If only it did come true, I could easily wear a coat like that because it would make a good ‘self defence’ weapon in case someone pushes into me from behind); However, should the worst come to the worst, there is always farting as a way to make people ‘back off’36 . 5. Recycling – Trendy or not, it is still good for the environment? 6. Retro – because good style never goes out of vogue. 7. Black Magic – because everyone is a bit ‘devilish’ sometimes37 Not: 1. Copying others – which is how some fashions become obsolete in the first place; 2. Being ‘basic’ – whatever happened to commonsense38 (and is not to be confused with ‘back to basics’ or ‘basic black’). 3. Being ‘triggered’ – because ‘sooky-lala’ is uncool! 34 Smidt, R (2017): Nike is launching a hijab collection that Muslim athletes helped develop, in Buzz Feed, https://www.buzzfeed.com/remysmidt/nike-is-launching-a-hijab-collection-that-athletes- helped-to?bftw&utm_term=.bbynVmK3r#.dhpAOe30k 35 Shop Style, 2017: Plus-sizes – Nike, https://www.shopstyle.com.au/browse/plus-sizes/nike 36 The Water Pipe (2013): Can a Fart be Misogynist?, https://thewaterpipe.wordpress. com/2013/12/22/can-a-fart-be-misogynist/ 37 Neturu Bookstore (2012): The History of the Devil, in YouTube, https://youtu.be/g8XQbqZUkms 38 Keyser (2006): Top Definition - Basic, in Urban Dictionary http://www.urbandictionary.com/ define.php?term=Basic

Answer In Progress Challenge 04, I outlined my predictions on what I think will be cool and/or uncool for 2017. Let us recap on what they are: a. My predictions for ‘hot’: Inclusivity; Back to basics and ‘none more black’; new materials (for Nike’s shoes); Recycling; Augmented Reality; Retro; Black Magic39 . b. ‘Not’: Copying others; Being ‘basic’40 ; being ‘triggered’. The idea of creating five images means these trends are the ‘pick of the bunch’: A sense of humour In times of stress, it is often a person’s best coping mechanism.  Example 1: Triggly Puff vs. Milo Yianopoulis  Example 2: ‘Fart Rape’ – Let us just call farting what it is - ‘bad manners’! Recycling and new materials Nike came up with a new idea of creating new sneakers that include both style and comfort.  Why not have dual-purpose shoes that are both good for jogging and for cleaning41 ? Inclusiveness: This is good when it encourages both women from particular backgrounds42 and those of larger sizes43 to adopt healthy habits like partaking in physical activity. 39 Neturu Bookstore (2012): The History of the Devil, in YouTube, https://youtu.be/g8XQbqZUkms 40 Keyser (2006): Top Definition - Basic, in Urban Dictionary http://www.urbandictionary.com/ define.php?term=Basic 41 Oates (2017): SM-043 SCISSOR MOP MODACR.COMPLETE(1), in http://www.oates.com.au/ ProductDisplay.aspx?Product=SM-043 42 Smidt, R (2017): Nike is launching a hijab collection that Muslim athletes helped develop, in Buzz Feed, https://www.buzzfeed.com/remysmidt/nike-is-launching-a-hijab-collection-that-athletes- helped-to?bftw&utm_term=.bbynVmK3r#.dhpAOe30k 43 Shop Style, 2017: Plus-sizes – Nike, https://www.shopstyle.com.au/browse/plus-sizes/nike
  18. 18. Basic Black and ‘Black Magic: I based these on my interest in Heavy Metal music, my tendency to wear dark colours and a more recent interest in symbology. Back to basics: Two examples:  Example 1: sleek, uncluttered images;  Example 2: teaching/retraining people essential skills that may be lost or forgotten – examples include drawing, health and safety, and computer skills. Being a cartoonist, I intend to keep up with these trends via the internet, the press, and animated film and TV. I intend to develop those skills via online learning, watching TV, visiting museums and practicing my craft.
