“Kaleidoscopic Patterned Postcards of the Old Masters”
Brief: Create a desirable object inspired by the book “Ways of Seeing” by John Berger.
Following the themes of reproduced imagery and overwhelming information surrounding us, I created Kaleidoscopic Patterned Postcards created from famous oil paintings by the old masters. All of these artists were mentioned in the book “Ways of Seeing”. I designed 12 postcards, alongside the packaging, with the cover, back and contents page.
Van Gogh: ‘Self-portrait’, ‘The Starry Night’,
‘Sunflowers’ and ‘Bedroom in Arles’
Vermeer: ‘The Girl with a Pearl Earring’ and ‘The Milkmaid’
Trioson: ‘Ossias receiving the Ghosts of the French Heroes’
Da Vinci: ‘Mona Lisa’ and ‘The Last Supper’
Holbein: ‘The Ambassadors’
De Zeem: ‘Still Life with Lobster’
Botticelli: ‘The Birth of Venus’
