Chocolate Creative Calderdale

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Recently had the honour of designing the next event invite for Creative Calderdale.

The main speaker at the next event is Mark Palmer – the man behind the brand success of Green & Black’s chocolate.

Therefore, for the design of the invite, we decided to go down the route of replicating a Green & Black’s chocolate bar wrapper . Seemed like the most logical thing to do really.

The Creative Calderdale event is being held at Todmorden Town Hall on Tuesday 18th January 2011. The events starts at 6pm. Contact Hannah at Creative Calderdale for more information.


Smashing, great… SUPER!

Each month I ‘art direct’ an internet marketeer’s newsletter/magazine called Marketing Dot Com. When I say ‘art direct’, this is actually a fancy way of saying I design the content of the magazine.

How it goes is the magazine editor provides me with all the articles and I design/typeset them for the magazine – this includes sourcing any relevant imagery to accompany the articles.

More often than not, I like to produce these images myself, whether it be simple pen & ink drawings, crisp vector artwork or full-blown Photoshop and 3D renderings.

This month, the main article (which is carried on to the front cover) is about becoming a Super Affiliate. The editor and I decided to go down the route of using superhero-esque imagery for the article and cover, something really bold and vibrant. Seen as though I’m a proper comic book nerd, this is was a brief I really wanted to have a good go at. I certainly have lot of graphic knowledge to call on in this field.

While I was producing the cover ideas in Photoshop, it inspired me to produce a piece of artwork for myself. A self-promotional, experimental piece if you will. Personally, I think this would work really well as a large screen print.
