Sean Scully


Each student was given the name of an artist and the task to design a book with various information on the life of the artist and their work while also representing the artist in the layout of the book.

Design thinking

The artist I had to represent for this project was actually a duo of two very different artists that came together to create a very weirdly interesting piece. After trying to represent the song by using metal and very soft material (which is what the song “felt like” to me) I decided to scan a very colored painted exploration that had been done in class.

The pattern that was then created perfectly represented the song Night MXCMPV1 P74 – Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois, calm yet very industrial and broken. The text was then added to complete the design of the poster and then also created an interesting pattern of a Totem.
