A disaster waiting to happen

For this project the brief was to create a piece of work that centered round a disaster big or small/personal or global.

Seeing as i have a keen interest in music and regularly head out to clubs i made my disaster about a club called plastic people on curtain road over east london that i check out on a regular basis and is under threat of being closed down. With so many clubs in London under threat of closure i thought this was a disaster that connected to people who know the club and what the music that is played there was trying to do.

In order to create the A5 landscape booklet i had to do some more research about the club, finding out who wanted to close it down, why they wanted to close it down, the feelings of the other club goers and what there opinion was, dj's and producers opinions and why the club meant so much to so many people. I included familiar images from the club such as the red/orange light that sits above the DJ booth, the broken plastic people sign above the entrance that reads pla people, all the familiar sights that people associate with the club so when they see the information booklet it it immediately connects with the vibe of the club.

Along side the information booklet is a blog that we had to create with breaking news about the disaster as well as a 15 second infomercial.

With all this information i was then able to create an informative piece of work that supported the club and what it stood for as well as information on how the general public could help.
