Bar Runners

I thought to progress from the beer mats I was thinking about designing for a bar runner also, but they seem to be quite expensive to get printed.

Looking at the site Zyan for getting one printed borderless its £45 and with borders its £51, and thats for a standard runner.

Beer Mat Samples - Primary Research

Here are some drink mats that I have collected from yo promotions and zyan for free samples to see which format and material would be best for my drink mats for Bacardi.

Beer Mats

Ive been looking at the different beer mats and to see what ones are suitable for my designs. From the research and crit feedback I am looking at getting clear mats to look at those my design is on the edge of a drinking glass. I have collected a few samples from Zyan and Yo promotions so I can look at different sizes and paper stocks.

Type and Layout

In my own time I really enjoy at looking at different type and layout designs and how type is created within in an image when I have my own time I like to develop my skills by taking the time to create my own type and layout designs here are a few that I have found on ffffound and behance and also a few booklets and flyers lying around my room which I find interesting.

Seasonal Shop Fronts

So for my Ted Baker brief I have chosen to design vinyls for the shop window focusing on the four seasons, spring, summer, winter and autumn. Here are a few existing window displays that I have found that are relative to the season or the celebrations/holidays in that season. They all seem to be very vibrant, eye catching and beaming with colour which is what I want to come across in my designs for each season.
