Promotional Graphics for Gay Pride 2019

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.

Packaging Design Portfolio

I am posting this to show my graphic design portfolio for a job interview.

The position was focused on packaging. I do not know if I will get the job or no, but I did my hardest.

To be fair this my first portfolio in this style I have ever done. I am sure it won’t be my last.

New T-shirt Designs for Japanese Restaurant

I have decided that I should add more products to the Japanese Restaurant Banner which you can see if you click HERE .

I believe that company t-shirts are important and especially in catering. I have created a small range of these t-shirts with the name of the restaurant. With this idea I have decided that these t-shirts could be sold to the customers. In this post I am expanding the possibility.

The idea was to make it quite funny.

The row above is serious and could really work for the members of staff quite well. The row below is bit more sinister.

The row below is introducing the products which could be sold to the customers.

Below you can see the image from closer.

Every designer should care for marketing. I have designed this sheet for possible advert in the magazine or other publishing devices.

New Men’s T-shirt designs for RHS Chelsea show

This post is follow up of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. I have designed posters, women’s tote bag, women’s t-shirt, men’s tote bag and now I have designed a men’s t-shirt. I have tried to follow same pattern as with the ladies t-shirts.

I wanted to produce a unique range of t-shirts for men. I am aware of the importance to create something unique to attract the attention of the audience.

Objective

I set myself task to produce range of memorabilia t-shirts accompanying The Chelsea flower show something featuring flowers in unusual arrangements.

In addition to these I have also create a limited edition which I have called “Designer’s Favorite”. Please see below.

Next images is a brand identity example.

I am done with my designs. The last thing what I have to do is to advertise it. The next few images will be of me promoting ma t-shirt brand and trying to reach my customers through advertising in the magazines.

Why is important to advertise?

Magazines offer advertisers highly targeted audiences. … Due to the breadth and depth of magazine titles available to consumers, advertisers are able to pinpoint their target market and then purchase ad space in the magazines they subscribe to (or those they steal from the dentist’s office).

without the work of other people I wouldn’t about to finish this project. For this very reason I will give credits.

If this would be for real, they would be sold in the RHS shop as a memorabilia. We ladies sometimes love to have something to reminds the places we have once visited.

If you own a pair of jeans or trousers (which I am assuming you do), you’ll probably need a top to go with them. I wanted to design something quite playful and funny. Like the example below showing London silhouette.

A T-shirt is a style of unisex fabric shirt named after the T shape of its body and sleeves. Traditionally it has short sleeves and a round neckline, known as a crew neck, which lacks a collar. T-shirts are generally made of a stretchy, light and inexpensive fabric and are easy to clean. Typically made of cotton textile in a stockinette or jersey knit, it has a distinctively pliable texture compared to shirts made of woven cloth. Some modern versions have a body made from a continuously knitted.

The material used would be 100% cotton.

For this example I got inspired by Alexander McQueen and Damien Hirst. I didn’t it to be too violent image hence the flowers.


I didn’t want to design too many variations as sometimes it is good to keep it simple.

I will be back with more designs.

I am adding few more colour variations.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show poster

A spring has definitely arrived, which is delightful. For this post I have decided to create a poster for The Chelsea Flower Show.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, formally known as the Great Spring Show,[ is a garden show held for five days in May by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in Chelsea, London. Held at Chelsea since 1912, it is the most famous flower and landscape gardens show in the United Kingdom, and perhaps in the world. [1] The show is attended by members of the British Royal Family and attracts visitors from all continents.

Highlights to the Chelsea Flower Show include the avant-garde show gardens designed by leading names with Floral Marquee at the centerpiece. The Show also features smaller gardens such as the Artisan and Urban Gardens.

At the moment I am in favour of vintage look. I create this poster from flowers illustrations not from the real photos.

I wanted to give more style option. I have created some variations in the style. Here I am using photographs.

After watching a trailer on RHS website featuring interviews with the participants of the show. I decided that a sharp angles are not always the best.

One of the topics of this year how is gargening for well being. This idea told of one of the gardeners to create something which would let the visitors to explore the garden more intuitively rather through designed paths I have created few more versions of my poster.

The colour used for the background of the posters are always colour picked from the photos. I am aiming for colour harmony.

The challenge here is to create something with text and photos without either of them overpowering the other one. I also didn’t want too many photos which would disturb the simplicity of the poster. I also struggled with placements of the logos. I resolved the issue by placing them on bottom right side.

The Chelsea Flower show is very visual and I feel photos are very important part of the poster. I felt I have to include those and they need to be relatively big in size.

Over all I am happy with my designs and might do more later on.

Healthy Lunch Club Poster

This new post is about a poster I had to create for Healthy Lunch Club. I had to complete this task very quickly so I had no time to spare.

The general idea was to create something quite simple and interesting. These are the ideas I came up with.

It is for a protected housing association with limited budget for printing and so I couldn’t go very crazy with colors.

The color palette I have used had been colour picked from the photographs. I prefer this method I don’t want something over shouting the photographs I wanted something to complement the images and supporting them, help them shine.Before I started I have done some basic online research based on the same theme.

The software used is Adobe InDesign, which I found ideal with this kind of work. The font used is Lato I interchanged it using Bold or Regular to help attract the attention between the text highlighting the most important information.

To start with I was using circles shapes for the individual photographs, but later I have decided to change it to rectangles as with the circles I was cropping the image

and for the food it might be better to display as mach as is possible.

With this idea I had to change the overall look as the previous setup wouldn’t work.

I also rethought the order of the photograph and changed it from horizontal to vertical as that seem more natural how to display menu , from starter to desert.

I hope the organisation will be happy with results of my work/designs and their costumers will enjoy the meal too.

Above you can see the other versions I did. Below you can read about the main dish.

Cachupa (Portuguese pronunciation: [kɐˈʃupɐ], Cape Verdean CreoleKatxupa IPA: [kɐˈʧupɐ]) is a famous dish from the Cape Verde islands, West Africa. This slow cooked stew of corn (hominy), beans, cassava, sweet potato, fish or meat (sausage, beef, goat or chicken) is often referred to as the country’s national dish. Each island has its own regional variation. The version of the recipe called cachupa rica tends to have more ingredients than the simpler, cachupa pobre.

Vegetable Crisps Packaging

With this post I am continuing in line with other crisps I have designed the packaging for.

I wanted to do 2nd version of the same product. I have enlarged the veggie image a little.

I feel the slight adjustment helped to improve the overall look.

Fruit and vegetables are a good source of vitamins and minerals, including folate, vitamin C and potassium. They’re an excellent source of dietary fibre, which can help to maintain a healthy gut and prevent constipation and other digestion problems. A diet high in fibre can also reduce your risk of bowel cancer.
