Hey all, I've been working on updating my own branding since my stationary needs updating soon I am stuck between these two front and back designs for my business cards (below) Anyone care to share their opinion?
The name sounds a bit cheesy but I designed this typeface (this poster design is new) a few years back when I first started studying Graphic Design. My research in to typeface design saw me referencing 'Jonathan Barnbrook' quite often and how he designs typefaces from recycling and combining aspects of other existing typefaces. My typeface - 'Celtic-Tom Style Serif' is the result of my the project where I combined sliced segments of 4 existing typefaces to create the new letterforms you seen below This poster expresses the grungier side to my own style and strangely, the appearance of the imagery created from the letterforms makes me think that this is a book cover design (even though it isn't) It just has that air to it.
Right, very sorry I have been quiet on my blog for a while but as usual, life is busy but fun. I have been spending the majority of my time either working at my part-time job (just for extra money to support myself through the last year of my Honours degree) or working/travelling from York to Teesside for my current client.
The 'Memories in Motion' Fine Art Exhibition.
This exhibition is featuring the art work of upcoming talents in the Tees Valley Art industry. They may only be student at present but that is no reason to doubt their artistic talent. All of them are available for private commissions/general commissions.
I have been personally working the the exhibitionists to design graphics to advertise the event.
Event opening day - 10th April (V.I.Ps)
Open to Public - 11th April - 16th May
Location - Pork Pie's Retro Furniture & Finds | The Emporium | Cleveland Centre | Middlesbrough
Here is a little taster of the advertisement so you can all recognise the event as early as possible
Due to the last hectic month and a half I have not found any free time to post any graphics work, in road miles I have probably covered over 2000 miles in the last month and a half for clients and such.
This vector graphics I originally designed at A3 but for this post it's only on A6.
The inspiration for this vector graphic came from a woman I met in a coffee in shop one day which has been stuck in the back of my mind. She was a quirky woman, enthusiastic and surely on a 'coffee high' and for reasons I can not fathom apart from her amusing reference to 'Forest Gump' and her amusing exclamation to her philosophical speculation, what she said has become the main memory I have retained from meeting her. So much in fact that I felt the urge to share it. This Graphic is an interpretation of what she said.
Her words alone carry a philosophical debate of both a literal and a metaphorical sense but no matter how I look at it. 'Optimism' is the key Factor.
