Joe Fenton can DRAW

Illustrator Joe Fenton started work on this back in 2010, needless to say it took him a while to finish it, to say it's simply amazing seems like a bit of an understatement, it measures about 8ft wide and is drawn in only graphite and talent.

Alex Varanese Future Retro vibes

Alex Varanese designed a series of posters marketing goods such as i-pods and laptops as if they were invented in the 70's, I thought this was a really fun idea and the styling and presentation of all of the posters is consistently entertaining.

Check It Out.

Final NYJC logo

These are my final pieces for the NYJC branding exercise, there are two alternate versions of the logo, this was partly because I couldn't decide which I preferred and partly because I thought they could have dual usage for certain occasions when the logo didn't need to be so big. With the poster design I was a bit hesitant about using the treble cleff as it is a bit of a cliché, but I was quite pleased with the result and I think it gets the message across of the nature of the organisation swiftly while incorporating the logo elements into it.

N.Y.J.Come on then

After managing to establish a colour pallete for I started trying to simplify my earlier shapes concept and chose four basic shapes to work with and then four corresponding colours, I also decided on a logotype I wanted to use something strong and sans-serif as I think it appeals more to younger audiences, the thickness of the type I thought also gave some more impact, but this was still only experimentation.

Jared Nickerson is one serious vector man

For quite a while now Jared Nickerson has been one of my favourite vector artists. I really like his plain simple, almost cartoony style and vectors just give such a nice look to them, he also has a great use of colour, the piece has a large amount of colours but they work somewhat harmoniously and I think this can be said about a lot of his work.
 You can see more of his work at his website JThree Concepts which is also a really well designed site.
