– Beloved Community, a direct response created to counter Unite the Right’s rally (UPDATE: The pledge has been successfully completed, and the site is updated with other organizations to donate to).
Donations are not the only way to support. #SPEAK OUT @thenave. Just saying your point or create art that speaks to others can create change.
The fooking OCR failed and came up with this
I am now hand typing 60 pages of handwritten contact sheets from last weeks Hackney WickED festival
AHHHH..Stay calm and listen to Black Madonna.
Currently type-dancing. (Best moments : 42 mins, 1.32, 1.46 FUCKYES. )
Torn on if I should try to get others to get involved in hunting for the venue like a social campaign or to just look for it myself. Could be a lot of trouble the first way. Could do both. Would be good to get a second opinion on this…
I have been working with Naomi a graphic design that I met at a photography course at Working Man’s College in Camden. Neither of us finished the course ha but at least we managed to meet each other. She created this amazing logo that is so perfect for The Nave.
I really enjoyed the process of working with Naomi on the project because of the style in which she worked. There was so much creativity and thought that went into every bit of what she did and all expressed in such a small space! I learnt so much about graphic design from her. I knew others would be interested to so asked her to write a little on how this process went…
‘When Ornagh and I first sat down to discuss the project, there was already a clear sense of identity that The Nave embodied. Like any good brand there were values and ideals that were clear, well-structured and had been thoroughly thought through. These, however, needed to be distilled down into one simple graphic execution that reflected not only the meaning of the name, but the beliefs and ambitions of the organisation.
The definition of ‘Nave’ is a central part of a church building that houses the congregation. This is reflected in the dramatic slants of the letters, graphically mimicking the towers and steeples found on a church.
Whilst researching, I found Nave also means ‘the hub, or central part, of a wheel’, fitting in beautifully with what the Nave represents – a place for people to come together and collaborate, the centre of a community. This is represented in the surrounding circle and lent itself naturally to the word marque.
Whilst the Nave is an inclusive platform, it has a strong and dedicated founder. The logo marque has a clear sense of Ornagh’s personality, again, the dramatic and sharp edges have a high fashion feel and, the breaks in the lines around the circle depict the bursting of creativity; I hate to use this phrase but, a sense of ‘thinking outside the box’ or ‘colouring outside the lines’ comes to mind. Ornagh wants to provide a platform for people to respond to creative challenges, so it was important to encompass this.
Overall, the logo is only one, small part of a much bigger picture however, I think the Nave’s new logo provides a distillation of it’s meanings and values, giving the organisation a great starting point in which it can grow and establish the visual execution of it’s brand.’
The Nave Creative Script Writing Workshop on Wednesday night was such a success!
It could not have gone better. There were lots of cancellations but it was nice to have my nearest and dearest with me to have a practice run, get feedback and enjoy the experience.
It also makes me see about how you must be constantly promoting yourselves. I did one day promotion in total and all on Facebook groups.
The feedback they did give me was great and this really boosted my confidence.
So we have created the story for the event of the girl after she makes her decision to go for her surgery .
Now we just need to story for the start of where she sees the advertisements, makes her decision and goes for her first consultation. For this I want to create images, memes and gifs to be shared across social media and email marketing.
I am going to approach two graphic designers I know to create a similar style workshop for graphic designers.
Here’s some of what happened from the night…
