These designs have a completely different concept, picking up on how Freakonomics examines why people do the things they do... so it has a gun to symbolise how it looks at the trigger for peoples actions, and it the gun is dismantled to symbolise how the book examines these trigger.I wanted to incorporate the financial times into the design to highlight how the book examines economics.
I screen printed the gun design onto the newspaper first, but I didn't think it worked well as a design, so I then made a screen of a newspaper column and printed it as the background to my design. Also part of the symbolism of my design was to show how Freakomics was a reflection of one person's view of our world. So I decided to print my design onto mirror card.
This was my first time screen printing and i loved it! A big thank you has to go to the Chelsea textile design girls for letting me move into their studio for the last couple days to produce this!
