Welcome, my name is Jackson Beck. My interest in design first came around through my love of drawing from a young age and have ever since been in creative practice drawing and designing. I am currently studying Graphic Design at Newcastle college and really enjoying the course. This blog is a digital scrapbook of reflections of my own work and recording of influences from other artists.

these are 2 double page spreads i designed. I think they look quite professional and minimal much like the work of editorial designers Fabian Baron and Alexey Brodovitch who i researched and drew inspiration from. The top spread contains an image that i edited in photoshop, which i played around with the color curves and changed to a black and white image to suit the atmosphere of the spread. I was also inspired by swedish design for the 1st spread using a a large sans serif style 'R' with contrasting text layered over the top. The bottom spread consists of a watercolor i completed which has also been edited in photoshop to help it merge in with the rest of the layout. I applied a filter which enhanced the darker tones of the image.
