Baking in Progress

Welcome to the portfolio website for Christopher Johnson. This website is currently under construction.

Real Projects Work Placement

Currently I am working at Real Projects, a Norwich Based agency, where I am in charge of “the Art of Faith” branding, an exhibition happening later on in the year. So far I have spent a full day in the studio working on this project as well as being inducted into the way in which the agency works; a similar way to that of TSO, another one of my Work Placements in Norwich.

During my first day I spent a lot of time working out what the brief was and what the client really wanted, and whether or not they had any specific requirement, the only one mentioned within the design brief was to use the existing colour scheme, which luckily for me is 13 different colours and full use of any tones.

The project is not the most creative, but it is a real design brief that will go live shortly; the main thing that I want to get out of this is the experience of a commercial environment. seeing as the project has been going on for a few weeks now and the initial info has been sent out the logo/ branding had to have initial logo’s done within the first 6 hours of last Thursday, a tall order for student who would normally get a few weeks solid on a similar project, I did come up with 25 proposals but I only felt that one of them was good enough to get through the client, but in the end me and RP decided to send off 2 versions for approval.

Hopefully this logo will be approved on Monday and the website can then be designed accordingly, but from what I have heard NCC like to have input.

Seeing as I only liked one of the two proposals I have only got a thumbnail sample of my favourite to upload, which does mean that the images are low res and colours might not look exactly right. ALL comments are welcome.
