Overview Grimshaw is hosting an Affordable Housing talk with industry leaders and peers in the Gallery space of their Carlton Offices. The discussion will centre on the topic "Accommodating Homelessness: how we must work together to help shelter our vulnerable citizens".
Guests will include other architecture practices, universities, government representatives and local developers. Grimshaw will also be unveiling a cubby house it has built for a local charity at this event.
You need to design one poster that creates a new brand identity for the event, but also is considerate of Grimshaw as the host. Feel free to decide on the event dates, location, etc. yourself.
Scope: Don’t stress on budgets or showing intensive graphic techniques, we’re looking for great ideas and simple, beautiful design execution. We will also want to see that the result suits the style of the topic being discussed (which will be how we evaluate whether or not the response is ‘on brief.)
The skill here is in showing restraint, attention to detail and inventive conceptual or production approaches blended with a sense of the audience and topic being discussed in an open format.
Expectation: You don’t actually have to print the poster so don’t let that hold you back. We would like you to create a digital presentation with the sort of information you might use to pitch this idea to the client. One concept will be sufficient.
Think mood boards and/or thumbnails, examples of any process you’d use and digital representations of the one potential design outcome. We don’t want you to spend ages on this – we want to see what you can do with a day or two so we haven’t allowed a huge amount of time for this reason.
