more promotion

on top of the leaflet and business card i did a huge window display based on how the shop is also a free gallery space/ a place for artists and people to come and see each tohers work, to sit and draw, generally use a collaborative creative space.
as such i did two massive acid spray can people flinging their styles at each other.
was fun to apporach something like graffiti which is i think very set in its ways as a physical medium (paint/markers on the wall, paper stickers etc) and use my voice which has a more collage and digital base to get the same message across, i feel like ive brought something a bit new to a very established art 'movement'
in situ:

digital piece:

also a side project one afternoon when i was getting square eyes from too much photoshop i did some little hand painted pieces and left them around norwich for people to find, if someone picked them up they were 'rewarded' with info about the shop:

stickyfingerz promotion

well heres what ive been working on for the past 3 weeks, stickyfingerz is a graffiti shop and communal art space here in norwich and the guy who runs it (tony) also does workshops for schools and youthgroups, so as part of my uni work i designed a leaflet for his workshops and a business card for him and the shop in general

final leaflet design:


business card:

had alot fo fun taking ym own photos of peelign paint etc and learning new photomanipulation techniques to make all the effects on these, really happy with them image-wise.
had a bit of trouble with the 'stickyfingerz' text, old version was hand written graffiti style, (can be seen here and here on my flickr. but it was decided a more blocky graphical but still handmade typeface woiuld be better from a design point of view, although i think i prefer the way the old one looks.
i guess i still have a ways to go in getting an intuition for what looks good textwise.

editorial madness!

yesterday we were given a morning editorial illustration project at NUCA,
we were given the choice of a few articles from the guardian and i chose this one by writer oliver burkeman.
we had 15 minutes to come up with an inital array of ideas, then 20 minutes to refine a couple and then after that produce a final sketch, all within an hour.
i was very happy with my final sketch so went ahead and did it. its the only time i can remember going from initial idea to finished piece in a matter of hours and was really quite fun, heres the process:
one of about 8 mini sketches after 15 minutes:

penguin design award

finally sent off all my stuff to submit this cover for the penguin design award.
cover is for perfume by patrick suskind, quite a mental story about a man who only understands his world through smell and ends up killing alot of girls in his quest to own their scent.
i really enjoyed making this, stepped out of alot of comfort zones and the end result is somehing im really proud of.
