For outcome 1 I created a working media pack that features the reader looking at personas, the visual identity of the magazine examining how what the layout of the magazine will resemble whilst also looking at the fashion direction of how the photography and imagery will be conveyed.
For my outcomes I created 2 editions, one which featured more graphic based images with the second one having a more minimal layout. I feel like they both work well however the first outcome has a more coherent style throughout.
This outcome has a minimal approach using smaller scale images with large white space. The text and images are set out so they reflect each other keeping the design consistent throughout. This outcome has worked out the most successful incorporating influences from many areas of my research, looking at plastic waste specifically.
This outcome has a more graphic approach with large scale images covering majority of pages. The typography for this was more stylised as I feel It fit well with the rest of the content. Like the first outcome, there is a mixture of colour to ensure it is consistent, however there is a definitive exploration of font style and stylised layout.
Carla Scotto is an illustrator who has created pieces for Parley and Greenpeace that are light-hearted but also focus on environmental issues. She has incorporated modern and comical ideas such as dating sites with strong text.
Sarah Wallace Scott is an America artist who creates minimal sculptures looking a nature. Figure 143 named ‘Turf 2014’ is a suspended installation piece that has been sculpted from cast handmade recycled paper, water colour and thread. Figure 144 ‘The Rescue 2011’ was constructed using cast handmade recycled paper, watercolour, handmade Kozo paper and pastel. I found these pieces the most relevant as they related well to the environmental aspect of my research in addition to how throughout her work Scott uses handmade and recycled paper which I feel I can further into my research, looking how recycled items can be utilised into something new.

Aurora Robson is an American artist that creates large scale installations using recycled plastic. Figure 159 ‘Jetsam’ is made from plastic debris accompanied by other materials such as tinted polyacrylic and mica powder. Figure 161 ‘Accumulus’ 2010 was installed in a building in NY which was made utilising 5000 plastic bin bags that the building throws away. Although these pieces are too complex for me to adapt on in my own work, they are very intriguing with the use of scale whilst also looking at the diversity throughout each installation Robson creates.
