Another graphic in the alphabet series started by my 'Go with the Flow' poster.
These designs are based on words that can only be made from letters in alphabetical order.
Font used is Arial Black. See if you can come up with any of your own?
Maybe its just me but I really don't like the 'M' word. This graphic celebrates the fact that Monday really is my least favourite day of the week. I used the word 8 instead of hate to create a bit more interest and textures to give it a retro look. Fonts used were Gill Sans Regular and Rockwell.
A personal project. Just a play around in Illustrator using the repeat and gradient features. Im always amazed that you can create something like this in a couple of minutes... Thank you Apple and Adobe!
Make some noise was a concept to warn people about the dangers of using earphones on loud settings. The client liked the idea but made so many changes the essence was of the design was lost! So here is the original idea that never saw (or heard) the light of day...
Transparency effects are very cool when used sparingly - and so easy to achieve with the latest software. This graphic was a concept for a sophisticated beauty spa. All the graphics and text were created in Quark.
Perhaps Im an old rocker at heart, but I just love graphics with these old style 'metal' fonts. This design was used for a poster - the strings on the guitar listing the venue details. The image in the background is a coloured up scan of a real crowd.
I really liked this oriental looking image of umbrellas and finally found a use for it. A personal project for a chinese style flyer. The graphic colours (CMYK) were taken directly from the image to create a balanced look.
One day I was scribbling on my doodle pad - the next thing I had created a set of X based logos. I thought it could be the basis for an X Facor logo. This was created in Illustrator - and perhaps the original X factor logo is in need of a make over anyway?
This logo just started out as a little doodle. I really love the brush tool in Illustrator - even with the mouse you can get some really fluid looking shapes. It was also time to ressurect an old favourite font - FF Blur.
Graphic created in Illustrator with vectorised image for a poster design.
The background scribbles were created freehand using a thick brush. I also set the vector image to multiply so it overprints the colours. Very quick and easy to create but also very effective.
