Dental Clinic Logo's

I believe this logo works because it creates a sense of sophistication about it, due to the font used in the image. "The Park" creates an image of a relaxing, non-stressful environment when entering into the clinic.
Selling the idea due to these factors to people of a elderly age bracket as it would appeal more to a middle aged or elderly person than a child.

I believe this logos works as it shows a certain professional edge to it. As the image and the text are clean and crisp demonstrating to an audience that they are well qualified. What also makes this logo work is the name affordable, appealing to an audience of a family. Seeing this logo would create a comforting feel to this particular bracket of society as it gives the reassurance that being at this particular company they are in a well qualified, financially family friendly environment.

This logo appealed to me as a viewer, not only because of the childish feel to it but because it makes me as a potential client feel comforted. The use of the cartoon image of a tooth is used i believe to appeal more to a child or a family with young children.

Florist Logo's

This Logo works well as it has a feel of professionalism and sophistication. The use of vines and flowers on the side gives the feel of quality when it comes to the products that are being sold.

I think this logo really works basically because of the simplicity of the design. It is just simply a flower but I feel it really is appealing to an audience looking to purchase flowers.

This design I feel is really is an appealing logo for a florist. The use of the vibrant red gives the sense of when they come to this florist they will get anything they need for romance. The red colour is really eye-catching and would be noticed more by purchasers than other designs.

Gymnasium Logos

I feel this is a very clever design for a gym logo. The heart beat line going through to create the "M" in "Max" gives the audience the idea that if they come to this gym they will reach their peak in fitness.

I really think this logo works well
because for one, the motif used in the logo is very well designed and is a strong red colour that catches the eye. Also the name of the gym "power club" the word "power" has been used in bold which emphasises to an audience that is serious about their fitness that they will get "power" if they come to this gym.

This logo I think works simply because of it's comedic use of a body builder. This I can also see working well as it appeals to the male ego as they will b working out in "God's gym". The use of the male body builder flexing into the shape of a "G" also appeals to a younger male audience as they will see that and strive to become like that.

Edward Steichen

I found this image to be amazing considering the era it came from where photography was only just being developed. The reflection created in this photograph is amazing as to get that exact moment would have been extremely difficult.

Robert Adams

I really like this image as the black and white theme is so detailed. It is a true black and white photograph as there is no grey or in between. This creates a perfect shading between black and white. The image its self is also interesting, as it creates certain feeling towards suburbia life.

Larry Clark

Larry Clark's work I found to be very personal and a confession into his life as a drug abusing adolescent. His work is a very "impolite" genre of photography creating controversy and stir in society exposing everyone to a world of drugs, sex and violence. His book "Tulsa" investigates the perils and exposes the vulnerability of teens experiencing and exploring life. I found the photo that I appreciated was his black and white photograph "Untitled (T23)" from his autobiography "Tulsa".
The colour or in this case lack of colour, I believe fully shows the exploration and journey that the three boys went on. Showing the challenges that they were faced with in their quest for ecstasy and thrill.
The shadows that cover the mans eyes create a sense of a mask that he's trying to hide his identity and use the masquerade as an escape from reality, in which he has a child. The positioning of this piece of work shows the disconnection that the man has from responsibility of fathering a child. The position of the baby horizontally across him shows the innocence of children contrasted with the environment that it has been placed in.


I found that Araki's work to be very provocative and raw. His way of photographing everything that he was interested in, in life, lust and love. His ability to capture the past and present in one shot shows the realism in his work. I found that his photograph "Yoko, sentimental journey" of his wife asleep in the boat shows his ability to to confront society with his private life. This photograph I find strips back his personal life to show his daily struggles in life.

Richard Billingham

I found Richard Billinghams work to be incredibly in depth. I particularly like this picture he has taken of his father, exposing the true events that happen in a family where the father suffers from being an alcoholic. The light and dark in the photograph adds to the severity of the tender issue of alcoholics.

Tony Vaccaro

This is a beautiful image by Tony Vaccaro. Perhaps suggesting slight controversy but showing the innocence of a child. Choosing the use of black and white is a main appeal to this image. Tony Vaccaro's work, like this piece is a form of placing a person, much like the man in the photograph, on a pedestal and making sure it is right to fit with their personality.

Cindy Sherman

The concept behind Cindy Sherman's work is quite detailed and sharp. The shading in the photograph between light and dark is very accurate and deliberate I feel. The focus being off center gives the photo the edge in setting this scene up.

Martin Parr
This image by Martin Parr, creates a comedic feel about it. Showing the routine daily life at the local swimming pool. The capturing of time a society gives a realism approach to portraying everyday activity.

Gregory Crewdson

This image really appealed to me as it creates a certain eerie feel to the photo with the woman in focus off centre down the bottom. The image also focuses on the surroundings in the room, creating a story for the image as to why the woman is there. The colours in this photograph are also very interesting as they are very dull and add to the mood of the photograph.

Jeff Wall

This image really appealed to me as i found the focus to be on the cupboards at the back , but I searched through the photo more I found that the main focus is the man lying lying on the floor. This placing of the man is off centre for a reason, further emphasising the struggle to hide away.

Got Milk?

In class today we played Get the Glass, now personally i thought the game was great fun but as per usual I couldn't get past the first few level! :( ... (Mission: complete this game!)
The thought process that went into and behind this program is mind blowing.. the amount of effort it must have taken to physically sit down and come up with an idea that will appeal to an audience that likes to drink milk... it's pretty much the whole population!!! This design for drinking milk is very impressive! (i would never have thought of it!)
The colours and tones in this game were so precise and detailed the contrasting tones between the light and the dark were amazing, fully emphasising the mission that the Atachi family is on.
The composition of the game although very ingenius, was probably the dumbest game ever, the player (from my own experience) becomes so engulfed into the game and not being caught by the cops and being thrown into "Milkatraz" and the time limit, the answers become so complex because you think there is more to the answer, thinking that it is soo much more complex then it actually is, and the answer turning out to be the most simplest and most obvious answer ever... (this frustrated me ALOT!! :P)
The game is very entertaining and fun to play in the end and very enjoyable when there is no frustration involved..
stay tuned! :)
