Analogue Systems is a project that draws inspiration from the overworked arguments of superiority between analogue and digital process. The project was originally realised as a teaching tool by 6 graduating graphic design students at Camberwell College of Arts who have spent the past 3 years refining their practice within the Adobe creative suite. After becoming increasingly disillusioned with the methods by which this software is taught, Analogue Systems has become an alternative remedy to a Youtube tutorial reliant way of learning.
Analogue Systems translates the language of Adobe creative suite and brings it into a physical environment, asking participants to take part in a collaborative poster workshop by giving them a series of film synopses and a brief that asks them to visualise them.
The aim of the project is for our physical workshop to be used as a kinaesthetic teaching tool, by getting each participant to work with the tools we have designed in the same manner that they would be used within the Adobe creative suite. In essence the idea is that everyone involved within the workshop will be able to take what they have learned and re apply it within the digital programme, gaining a greater understanding and appreciation for the ease in creating artwork that digital software has provided.
