storytelling {my style}…

happy hump day everyone!

the last two weeks have been a bit manic around these parts so please excuse my absences: late nights, early starts & lots of complaining…

i thought i’d quickly share a little of what i’ve been up to…

beyond answering a last-minute phone call to undertake a couple of weeks interning {more on that another day}, i’ve also been pitching for some client work {some of which i shared here} & putting together a storyboard series to apply for a role as a style assistant…

i thought i’d share my storyboarding with you today as i’m quite proud of what i achieved given the very tight turnaround {click on each of the images below to enlarge}…

to showcase my design approach i decided to put together a series of boards based around the theme of storytellers: my reasoning being that i consider a stylist’s role to be that of a storyteller, of sorts…

first things first, i introduced my topic…

 

The Storyteller_Susan Colebourne

 

before delving into how i would recreate the world of three different types of storytellers for an editiorial feature…

i started with the world of the humble author {of course this had to be set in a cabin}…

then dipped into a cinematic extravaganza {at an outdoor screening set indoors, no less!}…

& finally i rounded it up with an ode to the time-honoured tradition of verbal storytelling around a camp fire {& if you guessed i’d be bringing the campfire indoors, then i’m here to tell you that you’ve guessed correctly!}

which world, if any, would you most like to inhabit?

i’d love to know your thoughts…

{ps: a big happy birthday to my beautiful mum all the way across the seas}

  1. I love them! What a brilliant thing to do, I’m so impressed. I like the cinema one the best, love the colour scheme. Fingers crossed for you!

  2. Oh fingers doubly crossed that you get the position! I think that is an impressive alternative to the regular C.V. I love the ‘authored’ one the best, as you might have guessed I would. So much inspiration in all of those moodboards, though, I could soak all of them up! These must have taken you ages to compile; your dedication alone should get you the job!

    • thank you love! fingers crossed indeed!!! they took about 12 hours altogether including research which isn’t too bad… i thought you’d like the writer’s nook! we should all have a cabin to escape to!

  3. I missed this post so my comment is late but OOOOOH!!! I’m so impressed, these are amazing and I love your commentary. You have a wonderful way with words my dear. I love the ‘spoken’ one best – I want to cozy up on that hammock and the colours are just beautiful. I will keep everything crossed for you, they can’t fail to be blown away by your talent! xxx

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
