Few More References

Posted by Sam Hayes On Tuesday, July 06, 2010
I haven't progressed as far as I would like to have over the last week or so as I've spent most of it away in the Lake District, but I'm now cracking on with some concepts. I wanted to research into some of the materials and the dusty look of the time and place. I found a great website full of photographs of the American Western Ghost Towns which have been deserted with a lot of old objects and buildings left. These have proven very useful for figuring out the look. I've got a huge folder of images but here are a few which I'll definitely use.

I'm hoping to have at least a couple of finished concepts by the end of the week, a bit ambitious maybe.

    Hey Sam - really looking forward to seeing your project evolve now - it's so important to identify strong cultural/social/chronological contexts, as they simply make the design process easier - in so much as suddenly there are rules and regs and colours and textures etc. I know momentum is tricky outside of the academic year, but I'm loving the commitment, Sam. And I suggest you make this as ambitious as possible!

    Great images, Sam - really atmospheric... I love old derelict buildings that seem to project memories of what has gone before.

    Yeh, they are quite creepy and haunting as well especially the photos which show old food-tins and products unopened and left to rust. But they seem great for textures!
