This was an illustration I created just for fun and to develop my digital skills in illustrator. This was when I started to get into Vector Art.
Firstly, I would sketch out an illustration on a piece of paper, colour it in and once I was happy with the drawings, I would then scan it to the computer and create a vector illustration with the original drawing as the reference.
Although, this way of working is labour intense – I really like this way of working as it allows me to develop my traditional illustration skills as well as digital.
This was a poster I created for BFest Crew for their BFEST Summer Party 2018. The event was a dance party. When I received the brief, I was told to capture the “summer vibe” and to creatively play around with the letter ‘B’.
I chose a minimalistic approach for this poster, by positioning it all in the center and using minimal colour palette in order to make it instantly recognisable and easy to read.
I wanted to draw the viewers’ attention to the letter B and the disco ball, making it the center of everything. The B dominates the image, which takes up nearly half the space, rightfully done so to emphasize what the event is and who is organising it.
