HOUSE Poster 2015-16

Upon designing the 2014-15 House Poster, a deep understanding of House was gained and I was invited to design the poster again for the 2015-16 House. 

A more playfulness tone was suggested from members of House, along with different conversations with staff and students, it was decided on a poster that would defy all traditions, with no rules and guidelines; with only one word coming up numerously during these talks - family. 

The poster is positioned across the 3/F to 4/F in the A block of the school, with a size of 2.5m X 4.5m. With rumours suggesting a defy of all rules, the poster was widely anticipated and received good comments from all members of staff and students, with reportedly more participation in House events.

For this year's design, more development was done on the mascots of House - Phoenix (Red House), Sabertooth (Yellow House), Dragon (Green House) and Unicorn (Blue House). These mascots serve as a legendary hero for students to look up to, yet are often times neglected.

Development work shows the different faces that the mascots might have, all have different types of personality, such as the phoenix being the cheerful one, the unicorn being the very proud-of-himself one and so on, based on years of sports day results which links back to the students.

Hand drawn, full of gaps, full of errors. The feeling of a hand drawn artwork is one that can never be replaced by a digitally produced one, the link, the intimacy and the feeling of ease, attracting attention and successfully reviving the characters, giving them life by imposing characteristics and faces to them.

Final Poster

The outcome of the poster is more than a poster, it is a link from House captains to students, it is a family photo.
