I'm Gemma-Lea Goodyer and I'm currently a year two student studying Graphic Design in Bristol, UK. This blog is going to be a home for some of my work (past and present) and also a place to keep track of things that inspire me.

This is me!

Thanks for looking,

Peacock Clock

Peacock Clock
Personal Project, 2008

This was a personal project that I worked on in Autumn 2008, I actually created an A5 working clock using these designs as well as nice, textured A3 prints. I'm hoping to have these reprinted shortly so I will post photographs soon of the working clock up on my wall.

Counties and Coastlines of Britain

Counties and Coastlines of Britain
Own project, 2008

Hand drawn vector outline of the UK coast including border lines and counties labelled by typography and patterns. There are four appendages to this piece (see below main map image) which are A5 reference keys to the imagery. The map print was produced at A1, I'd love to get this reprinted with a few changes now that I understand aspects of design like kerning but alas, the files were lost in a irresponsibly backed up disk drive failure.

Creative Alliance
Typography posters; student brief 2007

The br
ief was to create a typography poster using two fonts from the Monotype font foundry. The finished outcome was a series of two posters featuring the type faces; Mosquito, Inflex, Century Gothic and Spectrum. The imagery was created using the letters from the font, for example, the pattern labelled "a" on the first poster is created using only the shape of the lower case letter a from Mosquito. The pattern labelled "b" only contain the letter b and so on for each letter in each type face.

I was quite pleased with the finished pieces (and still am). The actual print sizes I printed the posters as was A1 and A1.
