The Pop God Project
This project is T-Shirt designs with a culture mash between historical cultures and contemporary cultures. Since the brief was simply 'Use one of each culture to create designs for T-shirts and their branding' Jamie chose to blend two of the cultures that interest her the most; Ancient Greek Mythology and Popular Celebrity Culture.
Using a recognisable Ancient Greek style of pattern and typeface as an overarching motif, the designs were then created to show 12 busts of Gods and Demi-Gods from Ancient Greek mythology. These busts were portrayed as modern idols from today's celebrity culture, with tattoos and other symbols that represented what the Gods 'stood for', for example Demeter, Goddess of Fertility wearing a flower crown and Apollo, God of Music and Art wearing typical 'hipster' garb.
