Pictorial Metaphor

2 02 2010

Last week at Uni we pitched to Sowing Seeds, a local funding program that helps to grow ideas. I wanted to develop a simple pictorial metaphor to convey the idea that Sowing Seeds ‘help to grow your ideas.’This quick mess about in fireworks illustrates my thoughts on articulating this. Other ideas I had:

  • A light buld at the centre of a flower.
  • A corn field of light bulbs.

A similar seminar task was set a few weeks ago to develop some new pictorial metaphors for Absolut Vodka. The following image is already in existance, but I had a mess around with the copy. I’d go with ‘ABBAsolut Vodka – Dancing Queen’ – Looking with nostalgia back to their association with the gay market.
