Working on honing my illustrator skills! Why not start with a self portrait? Had a lot of fun with this one!
BEER CAN LABELS
This project was my very first live brief at the University of Cumbria. Eden River Brew.Co requested that we design a set of four beer can labels with a theme of our choice. They would then go on to choose designs that they would use on their future beer cans. As seen above, my theme was inspired by psychedelic colour palettes combined with traditional Japanese artwork. I then incorporated this into my own artwork based off of the four main elements; water, earth, air and fire. This was a very successful project as it resulted in these designs being chosen to be printed on real beer cans!
A magazine project regarding older theme parks in the UK. As seen above, these are examples of the spreads I have created. They used 6 columns, 9 columns and 11 columns.
LOST IN TRANSLATION
For this project, our tutors chose a song and put it through Google Translate several times until it became a mix up of jumbled words and sentences. They then assigned every year group with a line of their own to create a typographical piece. The idea was to experiment with different methods and get creative with our typography. I was happy with my outcome. It uses printed and warped text weaved through each other and scanned in, then the multiply effect was used to create the red, blocky shapes. The bullet holes were created using ink and a pipette.
This was a brief I set for myself. I wanted to create a fake skincare brand that is unisex and affordable. It has a medical feel to it, but also looks fun and playful. The colourful packaging would work nicely on anyone's skincare shelf!
For the ISTD 2020 brief centred around 'migration', I chose to create a piece with the theme of incredible journeys on land, in air and under the sea. The piece is a double sided, panelled magazine pull out which could possibly be found in the National Geographic. I used maps and migration routes to show exactly how these animals travel.
