Bin Laden's Hard Drive

My latest project, Bin Laden’s Bookcase which involves the thermal printing of all the declassified images that were recovered from Bin Laden’s personal computer during the raid on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Each image was printed in a continuous line on 50m of paper into a clear Perspex box in which his images will remain.

I was immediately intrigued and began to look further. This was the moment my project took form. I was so happy with the subject that I now believe it gave me such a boost of much needed motivation. I was genuinely excited to work on this project which I knew was a good sign.

Hello everyone! My name is Kurt Champion, I am a graphic designer currently based in the UK. I am a graduate of Visual Communication at the Arts University of Bournemouth. 

 

My creative journey started when I studied film and creative media at college. I have always been interested in film but found that I enjoyed designing the title and credit sequences just as much as creating the film itself.  From here I became obsessed with all things type! I began creating a design portfolio from self initiated projects in my spare time, from asking djs at clubs if they wanted some posters made to asking my friend's parents if they wanted some identity work for their companies. I remember creating branding for many of the plumbers/builders in my small rural town. As you can imagine the work was terrible, but I was having fun and gaining experience.  

 

The portfolio I created allowed me a place at Arts University Bournemouth, studying Visual Communication.  From here I began exploring my voice and I searched for my own visual style. I spent a third of my degree learning and practicing the rules of graphic design, but I soon learned that I enjoyed stretching and pushing these rules to create new aesthetic styles. I started to combine my passion and knowledge of graphic design with my interest of art, and began to explore art installation and experience. I am now exploring and developing this area of my work. I am incredibly lucky to have formed close relationships with many young creatives whilst studying at university and still work closely alongside them.
