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 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.

«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.
