On Sunny Sunday, I cycled along the South Bank on the Themes and went to see the Central Saint Martins Graphic Design BA graduate exhibition at the Bargehouse in the Oxo Tower Wharf. My dear friend Agnes was one of the students who were exhibiting their works. She created a collaborative work called ‘Fish & Ships’ with James.
…. As graphic designers, we often hook and bait for ideas, and wait patiently for the line to snag. The yang and pull anticipation of what caught the line and finally being able to see the prize drives the work…
The laser-cut origami style fish & ships – the metaphors of graphic design. The yellow submarine for example is like ‘unexpected ideas and different perspectives‘.
