My online profile picture has been the same since 2013! It really was time for a change…
The original illustration was drawn in 2010 in the comic book style made famous by American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein:
In 2012, I replaced the dots with plain colours, added a background pattern and used it for the first and last pages of my Design & Arts College Diary:
It has been my profile pic ever since (with the occasional tweak now and then). And in case you’re wondering… yes, the new look was inspired by a recent real-life makeover : )
If you missed it, you can read the story behind this design in my previous post.
This ‘Love Birds’ design was originally created for a student project in 2011. It was part of a boutique brewery branding campaign (yes, really) and was inspired by the textiles of William Morris. With a few minor tweaks and new text, it is now a quirky little art print.
Below are some of the original images that I created for the completely fictional Old Mill Brewers. The idea behind the campaign was that the brewery was located in a converted textile mill, a sophisticated venue where boutique beer is savoured like good wine. As well as coming up with the name of the brewery and designing the logo and bottle labels…
…I also invented the six flavours: Red House (pilsner), Honey (lager), Vanilla (pale ale), Spice (witbier), Black Cherry (porter) and Chocolate (stout). Yum!
I even added the bird logo to the barcode on the back of the labels : ) It really was one of my favourite projects (as you can probably tell).
