This is the poster I created for Brief Exchange, 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 vectors and with a very limited colour palette (no twenty layers of texture on this one!)
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 slight pirate theme that snuck in there too).
This is one of 35 posters currently posted up around Limerick City, Ireland as part of Brief Exchange 4. You can check out the rest of the posters here, and follow along on Facebook and Twitter too!
