Graffiti Technica (Brad Schwede)August 9th, 2010
Graffiti Technica is an Australian-based site that is exploring and evolving graffiti design to different types of technology and digital avenues. The site features the work of Brad Schwede a motion graphics designer who has worked in various design roles but is most heavily involved in graphics for television and online. Brad studied multimedia, majoring in design at Griffith university in Brisbane and has been working in the digital world for over 6 years now producing work for local and international clients.
Graffiti Technica Reel
This reel was produced mainly to showcase the work that I have been doing with video and motion tracking the work into locations. I am very interested in pushing this technique a lot further with future designs animating and interacting with the environments. I am also inspired by finding new architecture that I can incorporate into my designs.
This image is the latest work that I have produced based around essentially sketching in 3D. I wanted to create a series of works that would allow me to free up my style from having to always work on lettering and just produce sculptural forms based on the angles and techniques of graffiti.
3D Graffiti Print: Deadline
This work was an experiment in taking the work away the screen and away from the digital world to make real objects. I have tried several different techniques of sculpture and found 3d printing to be the most effective. Video.
3D Graffiti: Killerbits
Killerbits was a work that was a shift in style for me and remains one of my favorite works so far. I knew I wanted to do this work justice by finding the perfect spot to track it into and by chance came across this abandoned building site. Video.
3D Graffiti: Complex
This work was the start of the compositing pieces. It was based around the idea of a car crash and having bits and pieces ejected from the initial impact and having it catch on fire. This work also started me using the idea of forces (speed, impact, heat) in my work something that can be incorporated into 3D graffiti which might be hard in 2D.
