Summer Project: Part Two

Part Two of the summer project was an editorial task. 

We were asked to read four different texts, articles that would be found in a newspaper like the Independent. They were to be a rough idea of what it would look like, in a client visual format.

The size of each was 102mm x 104mm

Text One:
An article about how the majority of people are dishonest when it comes to handing in lost items. Statistics showed that people were nosey as opposed to being honest and acting in a Christian way. 

The crossed fingers represent telling lies and the open padlock suggests that what they are saying is not secure, you can't trust them.

Text Two:
Text two was a piece of text based on Richard Branson stating that in order to be successful you must tolerate failure. 

I chose the greek symbol for failure, Icarus, who flew too closely to the sun with wings made of feathers and wax.

Text Three:
This article went on to talk about getting older and how you see yourself mentally being younger than you are, and having a fear of death. It mentions a book in the article, which is about overcoming that fear.

A symbol for overcoming things is hurdles, so I have replaced hurdles with coffins, representing them overcoming the fear of death.

Text Four:
The final text was about 'Schadenfreude'; finding pleasure from other's misfortunes, and enjoying irritating someone who has a different opinion to your own.

The sun is happy because the cloud is sad and raining!
