The second project I undertook during this academic year was an Art Direction project based on Queen legend, Brian May.
This was a group project which had us focusing on his animal activism and protests against badger culling.
To meet the brief, we chose to represent May's involvement in Queen by a guitar case; we specifically wanted a guitar shaped case to represent this. We found a more square shaped case did not get this message across.
As many guitar cases are covered in stickers, we chose to design and use stickers that would represent his activism and work with animal rights. We used some stickers from previous Queen tours, although most of the stickers we designed ourselves to get the message across.
Finally to meet the brief we had to come up with a creative headline that would represent Brian May's animal activism.
Below are images of the final front cover and the behind the scenes of the art direction photoshoot.
