This is the poster I created for Brief Exchange 4, a group exhibition in which each participant responds to a brief written by another member of the group.
The brief I received required me to visualise a spoonerism—that is, a phrase or sentence in which parts of two or more words have been switched (e.g. Lighting A Fire ——> Fighting A Liar).
I’m a huge fan of wordplay, so I was delighted to receive this brief. At the time I was also suffering severe Photoshop fatigue, so to make things a bit more interesting for myself, I decided I would work solely in vector with a limited colour palette.
Doug’s Scullery is a spoonerism of the term skulduggery, so I imagined this poster as an advertisement for a local greasy spoon café, with a sinister hidden image (and a bit of a pirate theme).
