Paul Smith A2 Pullout

The idea of this brief was to comment on various themes such as: Travel, Music and Fashion and ways in which you can save money easily with these so you have that spare bit of money to spend on Paul Smith.
The limit of three colours was also introduced to challenge the design I came up with.
I also produced a Flash Banner so I used the same colours from these.
The two yellows are the same colour, just different opacities, same with the green.
Note: White isn't classed as a colour as the paper I printed on was white so it was just, 'negative space'.

Vector Work For My Paul Smith Article.

So I Had These Blank Tote Bags...

Here's two of the 10 I have, ready to print on.
Using a template from a Link Printing Workshop I took part in, I decided to use my favourite templates and print them, purely for the novelty value. I quite like them.

A Little Bit of Illustrator. Continued.

So i figured a little more practice with the pen tool wouldn't do any harm... :)
This quote was taken from the opening sequence of Greys Anatomy. A programme I absolutely love.

A Little Bit of Illustrator. Based On Me.

Basically I decided to experiment with Illustrator and see what I could do, so I decided to revisit a conceptual brief from first year, based on me, and see what else i could come up with...

Watch Work.

Back in the day, when I didnt know how to use illustrator, I created this entire piece on Photoshop.
It was based on some of Neville Brodys work, which I combined with the brief for advertising watches.
I really like the style, but it wasn't suited to the watch brief I don't think.

Bournemouth. A Photographic Adventure.

I feel these best capture my visit to Bournemouth.
I love the place in general but I feel more in my comfort zone down by the sea. :)

Malvern In A Nutshell

Basically, I visited Malvern three weeks ago and with it being Autumn I wanted to see if I could capture it in a photograph like I had caputured the light at Formby Beach in a previous post.

Fractal Work

I got shown this programe, Apophysis, and I found it really interesting so I decided to give it a go.
I've only had it a couple days though, so these are just a few experimenting pieces.
prior to any manipulations after rendering.

My intention is to use these in future pieces I do, the layering of these could definately add more depth to my work.

Further Fax Paper Experiments.

After the other blog entry about the fax paper experiments I decided to see just how far I coud push this technique.
Seeing as my fax paper seemed to be turning a lovely blue colour instead of browny/black like most others I decided to look at ice/winter/snow and see if I could portray this using the hairspray meets fax paper technique. and

Vwola! it worked. I love it.

12 Graphic Designers + 1 Illustrator = An Amazing Collaboration.

These photos were taken during a workshop we were given a narrative piece of work and asked to illustrate it using our own take on the story and our own style of drawing. I thoroughly enjoyed working as a team and I feel ours was one of the stronger pieces.

The intention for this type was to look like tree roots.
Which is also insinuated in the title.
This was produced entirely on Adobe Illustrator.
The minimal use of colour gives it an almost Art Nuveau feel...
dont'cha think?

Fish Eye Meets Typography.

Did you know, spraying fax paper with hairspray creates this effect? I didn't.
Obviously, in these examples i've used other objects such as fridge magnet letters and wallpaper prints but the gritty outcome is really great!
It allows you to manipulate something so simple and make it so complex.
I'm impressed.
