In this post I am introducing a bigger range of memorabilia objects accompaning The Chelsea Flower Show.
I decided to go for very classic motives so no skulls or other such motives. I have also expanded the range to include plates, mugs and teas for this occasion.
I wanted to keep consistency in my designs. For this reason I was only changing the colour and Hue/Saturation of the same motive.
For my mugs I also needed tea. I have designed a tins for my Leaf and Infusions teas.
After this work had been done I realised it requires a proper display something people would be interested in buying.
Now I have realised I have teas and mugs on display, but some of the mugs illustrations do not correspond to the designated tea. I saw it as an issue. I have decided that there is a need for a violet and chamomile mug.
Some of my potential customers could possibly favour a violet or chamomile mug to go with their tea.
I am adding a gallery for closer look.
Now I have teas and mugs to go with. I have now felt I might get hungry where would I put my cake? Surely not right on the table. I have decide to complement my collection with with limited adition of plates.
Below you can see a gallery with each plate on its own.
I was very happy with this work.
In the previous post of the Chelsea flower Show I have designed ladies t-shirts which you can see if you click HERE I felt that there is a space for improvement of the designs. I have decided I will create a new range to complement this new collection.
I feel like the theme has been covered, but nobody knows.
For this post I have prepared simething slightly different than usual. It is a Japanese tea set.
The Japanese tea ceremony is called Chanoyu, Sado or simply Ocha in Japanese. It is a choreographic ritual of preparing and serving Japanese green tea, called Matcha, together with traditional Japanese sweets to balance with the bitter taste of the tea. Preparing tea in this ceremony means pouring all one’s attention into the predefined movements. The whole process is not about drinking tea, but is about aesthetics, preparing a bowl of tea from one’s heart. The host of the ceremony always considers the guests with every movement and gesture. Even the placement of the tea utensils is considered from the guests view point (angle), especially the main guests called the Shokyaku.
I have only attended one tea ceremony in my life. It was interesting to see and attend. Unfortunatelly I do not like the taste of green tea much.
I have only designed the set.
Because I like creating whole sets of things I have also created a range of tote bags. Such bags can be used for attendance to a tea ceremony for example.
For this post I have prepapred a new tri-fold dentist brochure. The design was created by combination of Adobe InDesign, which is best was desktop publishing such as in this occasion.
The logo was created using Adobe Illustrator as it is a great tool for vector works.
Some small adjustments were done using Adobe Photoshop.
The topic is “Dentist” is tough one as I don’t know a person who likes going to the dentist, but that doesn’t mean there is no need for a dentist brochures.
At the beginning I knew I had to create a name and logo for my mock-up dental practice. I wanted to create business cards, t-shirts for a staff and maybe some branded items such as mugs and maybe cups for customer’s toothbrushes.
The image below is illustrating my search for ideal logo and name.
I was happy with my logo and I really liked the name. In this stage I could proceed to the brochure design itself.
By creating this work I was thinking I will overcome my personal fears of dentist.
As a professional I have also created some different colour version to my design.
I wanted to see how the text would look in white, therefore I have also created one version with white text.
I was very keen to use my logo while creating business card for the members of te staff working at the clinic.
Every company should offer a branded company T-shirt I have also created these.
The cards are bit bigger than in real life size, but that would be hard to see the design, therefore I have decided to make them bigger for this very reason.
For some time I have been volunteering for Wise Thoughts which creates dynamic local, national and international arts initiatives in addition is delivering services that help address social justice issues for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex (LGBTQI+) and Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.
I didn’t want to work for free for some corporation while still learning so this is a cause with meaning.
For this post I posting a bi-fold brochure for this charity and placards which will be taken to the pride itself.
I think in real life it looks lot better.
With the placards is important to keep the message clear and easy to read.
In this new post I have created a brand identity for new cosmetics.
I have designed a logo, created a brand name in addition to creation of advertisement for this new lotion.
I have used Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Dimensions.
I have established the logo as shown on the first image. With the type and the colours established I could proceed to creating and developing colours more including creating more logos as I wanted to create three different types of lotions.
With colours for each fragrance set I could proceed to developing a design for each bottle.
With this done I could export the individual assets and put them on real packaging.
My final step was to create for an advertisement for a magazine.
The idea was to create something very clean. I felt this product doesn’t need anything too bold as the target audience is between older generation wanting a good quality product instead of something flashy and shiny.
The last advert is more for a magazines or something like that.
After some consideration I have realised the colours of the lotions are bit too muted and uninteresting. Such product wouldn’t be able to attract much attention.
For this reason I went back to Adobe Dimensions and made the colour of the packaging few shades darker. The images below are showing the results of this change.
This attempt didn’t make much of a difference, therefore I knew I have to make the tubes darker.
