How's the Serenity
In a deliberate attempt to push the boundaries of my own practice, I set my sights on a final university project that would live outside the habituated comfort of screen and paper. Inspired by a growing community of Australian letterers and mural artists, I began to explore typography with the focus of painting my own mural and consequently developing as a multidisciplinary designer.
By quoting ‘Aussie’ pop-culture and drawing on the surrounds of the space, I was able to create a visual focal-point for the public which intentionally requests their collaborative consumption. In designing this mural for a local business in the CBD, I hoped to ‘revitalise’ the area and contribute to Newcastle’s growing cultural arts scene.
