When taking a step back I feel that we should have carried on and developed our initial idea, but we got lost on a bit of a tangent. Sometimes it's maybe a good idea to take a breather and look at what we're doing and analyse it against the brief before it's too late.

I loved this brief. In a strange kind of way it was quite refreshing to have a short brief after the really long collection 100 brief.
Initially I decided that I didn't want to take the word opposite too literally, which would probably result in producing something too generic. So instead I looked at experimenting with opposites visually, such as reflections. Eventually I ended up working with ambigrams, which have rotational symmetry, so when you turn them upside down they read the same thing.
I think that my designs are visually pleasing, but also have a solid concept. I feel that I have produced some good designs when considering the time that was allowed for this brief and got some very good feedback.
I the decided to take it a step further and produce some stickers and put them up around the streets, just to get my designs out there. They also made some good photographs. Just call me Banksy.
