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.

Here is a se­lec­tion of sketches and early draw­ing visu­al­isa­tions from my work on Kidswear Autumn/​Winter Col­lec­tion 2015. I really like this stage of the design pro­cess as it en­ables me to brain­storm and ex­plore dif­fer­ent ways to com­mu­nic­ate ideas and themes for the up­com­ing col­lec­tion.

It’s also really in­ter­est­ing to see what rough draw­ings do and don’t get taken on to the next stage to de­velop in­to the fi­nal pro­duct. It’s also a great men­tal ex­er­cise, hav­ing to come up with new ways to work in sea­son­al themes (e.g. weather, hol­i­days, fest­ivals, sea­son­al cloth­ing and events) and think­ing of new activ­it­ies for the icon­ic char­ac­ters to get in­volved in.

This Spring/​Summer 2015 Col­lec­tion con­tin­ued with the hand-drawn aes­thet­ics from the pre­ced­ing Autumn/​Winter col­lec­tion and ap­plied this style to cre­ate designs that de­pic­ted ex­amples of children’s nat­ur­al curi­os­ity and their fas­cin­a­tion with ex­plor­a­tion. Hence the char­ac­ters are act­ive, dy­nam­ic and ex­press­ive of in­quis­it­ive­ness, won­der and joy.

The Autumn/​Winter 2015 was in­formed by the pop­ular­ity of the pre­vi­ous year’s use of 3d mod­els. Thus it ac­cen­tu­ated this more styl­ised ap­proach with­in the il­lus­tra­tions. The designs were also spe­cific­ally de­signed so that more in­vent­ive meth­ods of in­cor­por­at­ing them in­to cloth­ing could be used (e.g. em­broidered rather than prin­ted and/​or patches of dif­fer­ent tex­tured fab­ric em­bed­ded with­in them).

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

The Autumn/​Win­ter 2014 Col­lec­tion was also in­spired by the 3d mod­els. How­ever, this series ex­plored more hand-drawn aes­thet­ics. The il­lus­tra­tions re­flect the core brand val­ues of Mes­am­is and con­sequently de­pict the char­ac­ters as activ­e and dynam­ic, as well as emphas­ising a close rela­tion­ship between child and par­ent.
