Poster Challenge – WEEK 3 & 4

The past couple of weeks have been busy. I went to an Interview, for a 4–6 week Internship, at Whitelabel UK. Also, I have been training and have become a Supervisor at Trespass in Aldershot. I have also begun playing with watercolour pencils, for some very special invitations, all to be revealed later this year.

So in between work, and the daily drawings which are going well. Still, I feel they’re not quite good enough to post up. However, two more poster designs have been created.

WEEK 3

Week 3 – ‘Fading Away’

I wanted to play with Typography again, this time using a single tone with a gradual difference in the opacity, on each character. Keeping the design simple and minimal it allows the word to be enhanced, with the effects used.

WEEK 4

Week 4 ‘Every Adventure’

This design looked completely different, before I added the subtle gradient in the background and the shadows on the mountains. However, the design again, is minimal (I think that’s my thing at the moment…) with the added interest of colour, simple typography and a calming sense of feeling. This is something I would love to produce as a vinyl transfer or poster OR even a screen print to sell.

Challenge Accepted!

Dear readers, (if I have some… I honestly don’t know, what’s more important is that I continue this blog on…)

Anyway….

Just recently, my boyfriend challenged me to draw something everyday, seeing as my ‘illustration’ skills need improving.

I agree.

It’s now Thursday, and I started Monday. He’s also making models for multiple uses for a game each week, and his friend is making his personal project. (My boyfriend is a game programmer, you can see his portfolio here).

So, we’re all in it together! Which is great.

I am also challenging my self to produce a poster, each weekend to keep up my design skills and hopefully produce some different styles, and find my niche with print while also editing my portfolio site to be more responsive and edit down the work, to only my best.

(I might produce a side blog / page for my poster a weekend thing…. OR I might just use my instagram to showcase my outcomes)
