Off their Heads
My final major project unit focused on the history of the rave culture scene dating from the 80s to the modern day. I created a brand that focused on this - creating a zine that taught the ravers to the not knowers all about the history of the scene, what you’d wear to the scene and show what typically the scene you would be around as well as this i created a short motion graphic ad to go along with this.
I was inspired by my love for the rave scene and through instagram these brand new urban brands mixing history and culture and zines together. I was also influenced by the style of a basic photography zine that I had analysed which used a simpler layout design and with this it allowed more of a focus on the style of the design, text and narrative.
