    An Illustrative theme based advertising campaign for Polaroid cameras at SID, Semester 6, 2010

    Print advertisement, 12 inches by 8 inchesPostcard (Front), 6 inches by 4 inches

    Polaroid cameras are popular for the instant production of their photos because of the instant film they run on.Thus, to mark the return of a new more modern range of polaroid cameras in 2010 I illustrated two concepts - A trip to the Circus and a trip to Paris.Based on the Polaroid principle of viewing your experience instantly, the campaign consisted of print ads for magazines and newspapers as well as free to pick up postcards.

    Circus people, an illustrative theme based type atSID, Semester 7, 2011

    Inorder to provide the user with more variation I also designed a three colour version of the type in which I used a specificthree colour palette for each character.In this version I also colour coded characters in terms of their part in the circus.Forexample, all the acrobats wore light blue and had purple painted faces.

    I also saw this three colour version as a possible equivalent for Bold and regular variations in a type.It also aided in avoidingrepetition and as I mentioned before, adding variation, especially when a letter or number is repeated.For example 11 orlittle.
