Drakula kastélya | BA tervezőgrafikus diploma Béhancen

Diplomamunkámnak az Írók boltja arculatának felújítását és egy kirakat tervezését és megvalósítását választottam. Ez a könyvesbolt, amelynek már az elődje, a Japán kávéház is a budapesti irodalmi élet középpontjában volt, 20 éves múltra tekint vissza, így azt gondolom a mostani arculatnak szüksége van a megújulásra. A kirakat témájául a leghíresebb vámpíros könyvet, Bram Stoker Drakuláját választottam, ami 1897. május 26-án jelent meg először Londonban, ugyan ezen naptól egy hétig volt látható a kirakat az Írók boltjában. Az általam készített munka hasonlóan egy diorámához, a látvány síkokra szelésével és eltolásával illetve különböző világítási módszerekkel, a kép idő- és térbeli változását tudja érzékeltetni. A munkát egy 1:8-as makett elkészítésével kezdtem ami nagyon sokat segített a valós méretű kastély megépítésénél, kipróbálhattam többféle színt, papírt és formát a végleges munka előtt.

Ha valaki esetleg lemaradt volna róla a Google Maps segítségével megnézheti!



Dracula’s Castle | BA graphic design degree project on Béhance

The theme of my degree project was the Budapest based Írók Boltja bookstore’s identity renewal and concept for its window display, what is realized and has been seen for a week. The theme of the display was an annual appearance of a famous book. 26 May 1897 was the date when Bram Stoker’s Dracula published in London. The display was a remembrance of the famous vampire story ever. My work was just like a diorama, what means “through that which is seen”, the layers one behind one made the illusion of a three-dimensional landscape. With this technique I could create the appearance of a real space. I started to design with a 1:8 scale model, what became really usefull during the work. I have had the opportunity to experiment with papers, colors and shapes. 

If you missed it, you can see on Google Maps now.

The car enthusiast, who is a member of the U.S. Military, hated the car’s silver color. One evening, he let his wife doodle on a few scratches on the bumper, and when the sun came up and he saw her stunningly intricate and elegant drawings, they knew they had to forge on. While he worked on tuning the insides, she drew on the car.

After roughly 100 hours of work and several clear coats to protect the design, they had an impressively beautiful car that they had tuned up as a team! (x)

That’s a sexy r34

Yes, but has Maggie Stiefvater seen this?

"I think there are two primary jobs that a jacket has to do: It has to represent a text and it has to sell it. In a way, a book jacket … is sort of like a title that an author comes up with. It’s one thing that has to speak to a big aggregate thing, which is the book itself. And it has to be compelling in some way such that you’re interested enough to pick it up — and perhaps buy it. … It’s like a billboard or an advertisement or a movie trailer or a teaser. …

I think of a book jacket as being sort of like a visual reminder of the book, but … it’s also a souvenir of the reading experience. Reading takes place in this nebulous kind of realm, and in a way, the jacket is part of the thing that you bring back from that experience. It’s the thing that you hold on to.”
