Sale into 2013

The local shopping centre, previously a client where I work, wanted some artwork to go onto the screens inside their malls for the new year sales. I took the opportunity to do some hand-drawn lettering for it and then re-draw it in Illustrator. It was a small project but I'd have loved some more time to refine the drawing. The artwork was used on their external screen too – probably the biggest display of anything I've ever done!

Car dealership adverts

I was asked to refresh the newspaper advertising of a client at work who sells new and used cars.

The original adverts stuck to one or two low-impact colours and used graphic elements that were better suited to the web. So I opted for bright colours where appropriate, and added some strong flat graphics as an extension of the branding.

The artwork below shows the flat 'used car' advert, and the 'new car' ads in print. I was happy to see that the colours came out nice and bold first-time.

The Heist (The Maiden Heist) film

Three security guards at an art gallery in America have spent so much time around three particular pieces of art that they've each developed a strong (almost worshipful) admiration for them. When they learn that each of their beloved artworks are being bought by a foreign gallery, they take matters into their own hands. Christopher Walken, Morgan Freeman and William H. Macy are surely reason enough to give it a watch.

The cover design for this DVD turned out to be totally misleading by the time I'd watched the film though. It suggests a gritty cold-hearted thriller. Thankfully, that's far from reality.
