Here is some sketchbook work and final designs for a poster competition for the Scottish Parliament.
The aim of the brief was to deliver an environmental message to all those Scottish politicians, as the chosen posters would be displayed on the walls of the Scottish Parliament. I chose to create a poster promoting Green Spaces in Cities, since I am all for that an aw!
Colouring books for adults are pretty much taking over newsagents, so I went with this idea because I imagine that's what the politicians are doing instead of work these days. So I made my own version, where the only colour is GREEN!
"Colour your Way...
To a Greener City!"
Surgeons' Hall Museums
Sketchbook and final designs for a project to promote Surgeons' Hall as a visitor attraction.
This was a project I developed over a number of weeks, with many trips to the Surgeon's Hall to really get a solid idea of the place. (I now have thorough knowledge of what gout looks like, which is obviously a bonus).
I explored Victorian Freak Show or Victorian Gothic concepts as they have strong ties to the historical idea of Medical Museums. However but I wanted to blend these with a more contemporary setting, as the museum prides itself on its brand new interactive elements. Touch screens and apps are aplenty - so I decided this to be a vivid feature on the poster, alongside more classical medical illustrations.
