British South Asian Family cartography. So here are two infographic/cartographic things/graph to show how large the BSA family is. One of these graphs will be used to explain what is meant by ‘family’ in different family events. For example, if you are having a family birthday party, you’d most likely only have Grade A. But if there is a funeral or wedding, you’d have the largest Grade.
What i want to know from you is: Which grade system do you think is best? The top one uses you, your siblings, parents and grandparents as the basic grade A and builds on top (grade B is you your siblings, grandparents and parents plus parents siblings and their children etc) but the pyramid one however, classes the grades differently. Grade A is still you, your siblings, your parents and grandparents, but Grade B is just your grandparents, your parents siblings, their children-your first cousins- and their children. Grade C then becomes both Grade A+B combined.

Which solution is most accurate and clear?

Which one of these graphs is most accurate in terms of explaining family Grades? (The easiest way to do this is to think of a scenario involving family events (Some are listed below if you need help). By looking at either graph, could you say easily “Grade A/B/C would attend”, or would you say something more like “Well all of Grade A and some people from Grade B would attend”

Which of these graphs is most clear about describing family/family grades? Which of these graphs can you read most easily?

When answering these questions, please bear in mind, you’re not really talking about the aesthetic design (because they’re rough drafts at the moment) but more the content and how it’s displayed. Any more descriptive and critical answers are more than welcomed!

Some Scenario/Family events:
Wedding
Funeral
Birth of a child
Birthday (yours, a cousins)
Religious holidays
Sending someone of to the airport
Somebody coming back from South Asian holiday

One and all of the British South Asian community,

Would you like to help a project about the ‘fairer is more beautiful’ stigma within the Asian community? It’ll be a great opportunity to highlight how being brown is beautiful, so we can teach the next generations to not shy away from this belief. the project contains three parts.


1) (The main and best part) Is to take two photoshoots per person. One, with their natural skin colour and one with their make-up or make-up they’d like to have which makes them lighter. 

2) Share your stories associated with the treatment of fair/dark skinned asians. Has anybody ever made a comment about your (or someone you knows) skin colour? Is somebody else you know layering makeup on to look whiter everyday? Or are your family proud to show your natural colour? We would like to hear about anything!

3) Take a picture of the skin whitening cream you have at home. It’s that simple. A quick snap on your mobile phone of any whitening cream is all that is required for this part.

It’ll be fantastic to have as many females from different ages to get involved and share their opinions and stories.So it would really mean alot to us (and potentially the community as this could be the foundation of a larger project) if you could get involved, you’ll get to keep copies off all the photos taken of you, (and I will edit them if you would like me to, once I finish university  on 16th May).

Lets be proud of our skin colour!

Photoshoot dates available:
In Birmingham: Friday 11th, Saturday 12th, Sunday 13th, Monday 14th. 

In Bristol: Monday 7th, Tuesday 8th, Wednesday 9th, Thursday 10th, 


To submit your whitening cream photos or stories, please do so in any of the following ways:

I will gladly respond to you almost strait away and look forward to all your responces :D

Call for female models on two shoots about make-up/natural beauty! Bristol or Birmingham

Hi there!
So as you can tell from this blog, I am a third year Graphic Design student. I have two projects to complete about make up but both focus on different issues. 

_____

Project 1 - Make-Under, the removal of make up being necessity

This project is aimed at any age females who feel they cannot leave the house without make-up. The purpose of it will be to take portrait photographs of your natural make-up free beauty, so that you can be more confident without it. If you allow, filming of the photoshoot and you expressing your thoughts will take place too. :)

models wanted: females of any age, any ethnicity, any amount of make up (whether you only wear foundation everyday, or wear loads).

What you get: The work will be unpaid. however, you get a free photoshoot and can keep copies of all shots of you and film.

Where and When: In Bristol Harbourside prefferably. Contact me for more info. As for when, The last date I will be doing shooting will be the 5th of April.

_____

Project 2 - British South-Asian Fair & Lovely

For this project, I want to challenge the preconception of ‘the fairer you are, the more beautiful’. This will be done by doing two shoots. The first with your natural skin tone (little make-up can be worn just as long as it doesn’t change your look!). The second, wearing your preferred amount of make-up to show how much difference it makes (if at all). 

Models wanted: British South-Asian females of any age. 

What you Get: Free photoshoots plus copies of all shots of you.

Where and When: Birmingham or Bristol. Deadline for last photoshoot is 13th April but ASAP. Please ontact me for more info.

_____

Thank you very much for your interest and if you take part - I LOVE YOU!
If you would like me to send you some photography work that are not on my website/DeviantART/This Blog, please let me know. Any other questions, also holla!
