What do you dream to be?

Graphic Design

Ned Ashby

Since I was a boy, I was always curious about dreams and what they meant to people. For me at least, I found dreams fascinating as they make no sense to the surface but have hidden meanings.

Some dreams when we sleep reflect what is going on in people’s lives, including what we aspire to be. From a teenager’s perspective, I wanted to capture people’s ‘dream jobs’ in the form of dreams using compositional devices and symbolism through photographic digital media. I also used digitally hand-drawn elements to immerse my audience in a Surrealist dream-like state about people’s dream jobs.
