introduction

this is the graphic design portfolio of Dominic Brighton.

ba thesis

my bachelor thesis deals with the different measurement systems used in the world. Specifically the ones used in Germany and the United States, which use the metric system and the US customary system. Converting units from one system to the other can be confusing,and at times even lead to accidents.To address these difficulties I created a travel-guide of sorts, for measuring systems.

ba thesis

The book which features information about the transatlantiv relations between the US and Germany, the history of the unit systems and exact conversions, is accompanied by an iPad app that lets the user interact with information graphics . Through the playful experience the user can develop a better feeling and understanding for the other system.

ba thesis

From a design perspective, one of my main goals was to keep a consistent visual language across the different types of media. It was an experiment to see if i could translate the reduced typographic language used in the printed product to the digital interface of the iPad.

Jim Thompson Bookcover

During an internship at Melville Brand Design I had the chance to design a bookcover for the Jim Thompson novel "Jetzt und auf Erden".

ci hirschgarten

Together with Jonas Hirschmann I developed a new Corporate Identity for a traditional bavarian beergarden. As part of a semester project with Prof. Xuyen Dam we tried to find a new visual language, that manages to take a new approach while still keeping references to the traditional appearance of beergardens.

As part of the new Corporate Identity we developed a new "Hausschrift", the Hirschfänger. We drew inspiration from the traditional old-german blackletter-typefaces and tried to develop a display-face with a modern feel.
