A Masters in Graphic Design:

Final Major Project

The title of the project refers to who I believe it represents, which is threefold. 

Who is it in recognition of? 

It recognises a man’s life firstly. The photographs represent a time in his life, and the props are facsimiles of ones that live in private archive

(my mum’s loft).

It also represents the people who participated and fought in world war two, those who lost their lives, and those lucky enough to come home again. The documents I recreated are many of thousands, some that may not even exist anymore. Recreating the documents almost represents those memories lost.

Lastly it represents an area of graphic design that isn’t very well documented, and sometimes over looked. But it could be argued that they’re designed to be so. Graphic props should sit within a scene comfortably and suit the style of the set. Graphic prop designers have been known to say, ‘if nobody noticed my work, that usually means I’ve done a good job.’
