Typography – Postcards

Are typography class was assigned to make 6 postcards on a political or social movement. I have chosen to do the political and social movement of parihaka!!!

For those who do not know about parihaka here is the parihaka website complete with the parihaka story:

Its basically where passive resistance or as maori call it “paimarire” which is like a lifestyle.

i have chosen to tell the history of parihaka through “whakapapa” or geneology.

here is the last postcard which i have been working on. Let me know what you think??? Its not the final yet though still got some work to do 😀

Website Layout Progress

This is my website layout for my portfolio site so far. So far i only have a header, footer and nav buttons, so it is a work in progress. I want to have a cutout look. Like paper cutouts. I will post more pictures as it develops. I have done more but it is still in a developmental stage so dont want to show it until im done. I was even reluctant to show this haha.

White Stripes – Death Letter

All I could think of when posting this video is all the words that come to my head when i hear this magnitude of epic sound. It turned into a poem:

The Soul of a passionate pain,

a splendid brain,

Got the dirt sick blues

and it hurts like Red, FUCKING RAIN!!!
