A promotional poster for a live variety performance night held in London’s Soho. The Albany features great artists and gigs every month and @liquorshots (a local London DJ) came to me to help promote his Softly Spoken evening.
A 1920s New Year’s Eve poster created for the Embankment, Nottingham. Designed to capture the outrageous flapper dresses and colours of the 1920’s, this promotional poster informs and entices the reader to step back in time and attend New Year’s Eve in style. With the rich red and gold, and the straight 20s illustrative girls with their champagne glasses ready, this promotional poster documents versatility in style, but true roots with the black background and splashes of vibrant colour.
Combining a mix of traditional illustration, with modern graphic design, I’ve created two promotional posters for the ultra cool rockabilly band The Deadshots. Their raw sound of upbeat rockabilly covers with a mix of their own material as well, meant their promotional work had to be just as lively and full of life. Never standing still on the dancefloor, the lads wanted their posters vibrant and rockin’.
For all the rum drinking stout lovers, this is the promo, and the ale just for you! Cap’N Will’s Rum Stout was an ale crafted with care and love (and a litre of rum) for the microbrewery Alestones in Tardebigge. After it was tested and decided that it had just the right amount of rum in it, I was asked to produce an illustration that would distinguish it from the more traditional ales the microbrewery currently sold. And so Cap’N Will’s Rum Stout took a pirate themed adventure with the skull and wing front, the pirate ship donned by the ropes and a timely font to punch through the red background.
Making a poster, whether it be for a company, event or individual, needs to be personal and relatable. The Wanted poster was created for a friend who wanted to redecorate her wall at home with something that was so individual, no-one else would be able to purchase it. So I spend some time really getting to figure out her interests and distinguish her personality into one concise Lydia poster, that not only had her name on the front, but imprinted her individual style and mark all over her bedroom wall.
