GSA Project Archive: Dulux Paint Tin

Project briefs in the Graphic Design Department during Session 1985/86 were no longer than one side of A4 and around 100 words (no learning outcomes). This project was about “cardboard engineering” with the aim being to use a single sheet of card. You were asked to examine an everyday object from around the house and make an exact reproduction. My choice of a Dulux tin was a challenging one as I needed three sheets of card to add the lid and brush to the assemblage. I remembering thinking what the heck, just do it anyway. This is how my recently rediscovered outcome looked.
