About Me

Fashion Branding & Communication graduate Arts University Bournemouth

Auriol Symons is a fashion branding and communicator, specialising in graphics, art direction and image making. Auriol's ideas stem from working physically, creating hands-on experiments that reflect her thoughts which can be made into something bigger.

Hi! I am Auriol, and I have a passion for paper, colour, space, along with an imaginative approach to design. I have always felt inspired by the exciting physicality of magazines, and the addictive feeling you get as you turn through the pages. There is something comforting about this, and I wanted to bring that to the forefront with my FMP, GRIP Magazine.

INSPIRATION

My initial inspiration came from understanding why feelings of uncertainty make us feel afraid.

I wanted to create a publication that is a supportive collection of stories, interviews and imagery to make the reader feel at ease, taking the seriousness away from everyday. My creativity stems from making hand-made, tactile zines as a form of idea generation and image making, as there is no limit to how visually confusing they can be. Zines are a great way to express your different feelings, using any materials you have around you to make a small idea come to life.

MY WORK

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

GRIP will become a customisable, adaptive and unique series of publications.

GRIP is a publication that absorbs negative feelings, creating a relatable and relaxed mindset for the reader. The first chapter of issue one, No Pressure, explores what it means to make a mistake and society’s perception of shame, through an interview with a modern design studio who create work based on this concept. This is an example of a story I felt was important to share with creative people, as it is easy to forget that making mistakes and not being perfect is all part of the process. I feel passionate about sharing useful, interesting stories with others, and to be able to curate these into a unique magazine about creativity is what I enjoy most. I am excited to share my ideas and aesthetic with others in the fashion industry, whilst also hoping everyone can take something positive away from my work.
