I’ve decided to take part in Smashing Magazines "Design A Day’ challenge, with the idea that even if I can only spend 20 mins a day working on something I’ll hopefully become a ,much better artist and learn a vast array of new skills. Here’s hoping anyway!
So this is my first one. It took me about an hour all together, but went through a few different carnations before I settled on this final design.
I took my inspiration firstly from a piece by Jonathan Tran, featured in “The Picture Book – Contemporary Illustration (Edited by Angus Hyland)” which I received for Christmas. I think it was my favorite pressie :). My second source of inspiration was from the Helvetica documentary DVD, which was another Christmas pressie. I was a very lucky girl this Christmas!
