Wallop is the umbrella name for all of Graphic Designer, Katie Wall's, various artistic endeavours. Whilst she spends a great deal of her time working on client graphic design projects, illustration commissions and bespoke art, she also runs several weekly Art and Design Workshops for young adults with learning disabilities, in association with Post 19. For any further information or if you have a project you would like to discuss, please do get in touch. Or simply enjoy the site.
A recent interesting design project came in from Alton College. The brief was to create a series of posters raising awareness of extremism and radicalisation. The images were created in various formats from A5 flyers to large format posters and included hand drawn abstract illustrative elements which allowed me to try new techniques drawing on the iPad with an Apple pencil to replicate a naive hand scribbled style.
Workshops & Tuition
From this term onwards, I will be running three weekly graphic Design sessions, as well as the usual three Art sessions, for young adults with learning disabilities. We will be welcoming in the new term revisiting a project we tested last year, "Hello, it's me" to introduce ourselves and set the pace of all the exciting new challenges we have to work on this year.
