‘Reasons To Be Cheerful’ Workshop
11th August at St Wilfrid’s Hospice, Eastbourne
Fotofonty hosted this neontastic workshop at St Wilfrid’s Hospice Crafty Friday workshop. It was great to see people of all ages joining in taking part in creating their own “Positivity Poster”. The aim was to think of at least three reasons that make them happy and using type, collage and hand-lettering to create a typographic poster which would remind them of those reasons at all times. The results were the fantastic, bright, neon, A3 posters of joy. We also learnt that Unicorns make a lot of people happy as well as summer, ice cream, family and…Crisps!!
‘Vote For Me’ Workshop
We launched FotoFonty with our first workshop at Devonshire Collective Cafe and Gallery in Eastbourne on the 28th May. The election was in full swing and we thought that it would be a great idea to give a voice to young people/children who can’t vote and involve them in making their own campaign poster. We wanted to see what is important to them, how would they get people to vote for them whilst being creative at the same time. The FotoFonty ‘candidates’ would have their photo taken and were encouraged to think about what about their slogans which would represent their campaign. They were encouraged to use typographic and graphic design elements which were best suited for their campaign style. The candidates then had their photo taken with their campaign poster. To be as close to the real election, they were able to vote for their favourite campaigner/party. Here are a few photos of the event and of our candidates!
