▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ THINGS TO CHECK BEFORE YOU BUY ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Where do your RB products ship from?

Let’s face it, no one wants to get stung by customs duty. And, seeing as Redbubble don’t yet have a jet to help deliver orders to your door, you may want to check where your orders are being sent from before you hit the buy button! (Especially if you reside in the UK). It could help save you a few £££££’s.

Dezign with a Zed or a Zee

With an extensive background in magazine publishing ranging over a period of sixteen years, ifourdezign has attained a varying array of skills in layout and print media. However, away from the complexities of working in four-colour print, ifourdezign’s personal interests tend to lie within the illustrative process. Particularly vector illustration, photo-manipulation, digital painting, especially photo/hyper-realism in portraiture and more recently 3D art.

So, when was the digital art bug first realised?

“In the home environment, surprisingly late. In fact, I didn’t get my first home computer until the grand old age of twenty-five. Which sounds quite ridiculous now when you think kids, these days, practically come out of the womb clutching a tablet and are capable of coding by the age of two!

But, it was at least a whole decade, plus a few years, after I first started working in publishing that I decided to make the transition from traditional mediums like pencil/pen /ink/watercolour and pastels before I went digital at home fulltime. Although it was a process I, personally, found relatively painless seeing that I was already using the same software at work on a regular basis.

However, one thing ifourdezign’s keen to stress is that while working in a fast-paced, commercially driven environment may offer an artist good experience and training, it doesn’t inevitably make you a great painter or digital artist.

On the contrary. In fact, it can even restrict you creatively. Think about it. In the work environment, no matter your role, you’re probably only ever going to utilize about 40% of the package. Which means the rest of what you choose to learn has to be performed in your own time. Something which isn’t always easy to replicate in the home environment.

Afterall, DTP or desktop publishing was in its infancy when I first started in advertising/publishing and packages like Photoshop and Illustrator were often only accessible within a professional studio. Which is exactly why, (if anyone should ever ask), why I’m proud to say, I’m most definitely a self-taught digital artist!

So, what are the pros working digitally?

In a word…accessibility! I just love that I have access to literally everything I need to create right here, in front of me. Thankfully, gone are the days where the living room table was a mass with tins of pencils, pots of paint and overworked sketchpads.

And the cons?

Since year dot I’ve always been a perfectionist. Not to say that’s a bad thing. However, these days, I’m literally off the scale with an even bigger obsession for detail. I guess I just never quite know when to stop!’. — ifourdezign

What’s in a name?

Most think it’s a typo, while spellchecker usually goes into meltdown trying to correct it. But, quite simply it’s purposely phonetic. A play on a word and a statement (eye for design) that ifourdezign wants you to remember.

So why ifourdezign?

’Well, initially, my art name was derived from my love for eyes! Yes, you heard right…eyes! Which, I used to subtly try and include somewhere in my personal works. A feature which would go on to define a series of logos.

Then, a few years later, when my love for all things Apple was realised, I decided to go with another play on words and ‘eye’ became a lowercase i, which helped me in reworking and redefining another logo. It also gave birth to the numerical version a few folks in other art circles still know me by — i4dezign (which I still use on some personal sites).

However, in the present climate, one wanted a name that defines all the above and embraces my years spent working in four-colour print and publishing. Hence the CMYK connection. Which now means you can call me ifourdezign, ifour, i4dezign or even i4.

Whoever said a name has to be boring?’
