An illus­tra­tion design embel­lish­ing an ’Alpha’ concept logo, com­mis­sioned via Crew web­site. The illustration’s com­pos­i­tion is inspired by the ‘Allegory of Prudence’ by Titian and its con­tent com­bines a three-​headed entity (one Bear, one Lion and one Wolf) within the typo­graphic ‘Alpha’ logo. Each animal is inten­ded to sig­nify a par­tic­u­lar vir­tue the brand wanted to evoke (Lion = Courage; Bear = Strength; Wolf = Loyalty). The logo was cre­ated for brand­ing pur­poses and labels, with the illus­tra­tion hav­ing to be cap­able of being prin­ted on black and white apparel.

Examples of per­son­al­ised illus­tra­tions cre­ated for use in letter-​pressed wed­ding invites. I have worked on a num­ber of such com­mis­sions, which have been offered to me via the Crew web­site. On the invit­a­tion with a map, I only cre­ated the illus­trated icons and topo­graphic ele­ments such as moun­tains and forests.

I very much enjoyed being a small part of people’s “Big Day”. If you’re look­ing for help with a wed­ding invite please don’t hes­it­ate to drop me an email.

This is a selec­tion of illus­tra­tions cre­ated for the Spring/​Summer 2014 Collection. The three brand char­ac­ters of Mesamis (Bear, Rabbit and Elephant) were redesigned as 3d mod­els and then used as the basis for all the images.

The Autumn/​Winter 2014 Collection was inspired by the 3d mod­els. However, this series explores more hand-​drawn aes­thet­ics. It refers to core brand val­ues of Mesamis. These centre around activ­ity and dynam­ism and emphas­ise a close rela­tion­ship between child and parent.

«Wheel of Fortune»

series of group exhibitions called "Fingers Crossed"

  • Fingers-Crossed-Karolful
  • Fingers-Crossed-Karolful2

Karolful was invited to par­ti­cip­ate in a series of three pop-​up exhib­i­tions in Manchester, each on one of the Fridays the 13ths in 2015. These exhib­i­tions are inspired by the notions of luck, chance, fate and coin­cid­ence. The first two took place in February and March at Rogue Studios and AWOL Studios respect­ively. These have been cur­ated by Katarzyna Jablonska and the final instal­ment is sched­uled for the 13th of November 2015. The poster image was designed by Alex Young.

Drawing inspir­a­tion from Greek Mythology, Karolina explores the motif of Rota Fortunae (Wheel of Fortune). It is a concept rep­res­ent­at­ive of the capri­cious nature of fate and luck and of how within our per­sonal nar­rat­ives we habitu­ally rep­res­ent time as a cycle between prosper­ity and dis­aster. For the pur­pose of this exhib­i­tion Karolful intro­duced a new tech­nique which blends a graph­ite mono­type with tra­di­tional pen­cil draw­ing. These draw­ings have been pro­duced in col­lab­or­a­tion with the dan­cers Louis Lever and Joe Thomas.

In November 2014 Karolful was invited to join TurnAround Dance Theatre in their res­id­ency at Yorkshire Dance. They were devel­op­ing a new piece called “Mirrored Minds”, in which they explored how we use mir­ror neur­ons to learn, recog­nise and empath­ise with one another.

In January 2015 Karolina pro­duced a series of 4 draw­ings that were exhib­ited in The Dukes gal­lery in Lancaster. These were 30cm by 40cm mixed media pieces that com­bined digital lin­ear out­line with tra­di­tional pen­cil drawing.
