Gateshead College student Marcus Brown’s design was inspired by the vibrant colours and quirky shapes of the post-modern Memphis Movement, the triangular patterns of Cubism, as well as the work of contemporary artists Dzine and Jen Stark. To build the shapes and patterns, Marcus took inspiration from the architectural shapes of the college’s Baltic Campus as well as well-known North East landmarks. There are 5 hidden in the design, can you spot them?
