Branding & Illustration | Raising Little Shoots

Earlier this year I was commissioned for a branding and illustration brief inspired by nature - my favourite subject!

I had to illustrate and design the front cover for two self published e-books inspired by nature and education. As well as the cover designs, I also created a typeface and a logo for their website.

I used my trusty gouache paints along with a little help from Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to digitalise the lettering and tidy up the painting.

New Things! Summer 2015

I've been spending a lot of this year so far working two part time jobs (aaaargh!) saving money for my three week USA road trip in September (yaaaaay!) and in between, somehow finding time to make new patterns and work on a few freelance projects! I'm now only at one job now as the saving situation is complete, so now I've finally found time to blog my most recent work!

I was commissioned by a Graphic Designer to make a pattern for her branding project (below) and I've designed logos for two small businesses.

I've made a range of new greeting cards, some with my floral patterns on, the others are aimed at new arrivals and little birthdays to test the baby/child market :) They're available on my etsy shop.

I also entered the latest Tigerprint competition, of which I was shortlisted for! That was pretty cool!

I've been doing more work for Pets at Home! I'm still working there part time in the Winchester store - which I love! - and I love to volunteer my services to design fun POS and posters to promote things. I designed this poster for a Charity Fun day in the Southampton next month, and is displayed in all local stores in the area! 

A while back, I designed a T-Shirt for an upcoming girlswear brand Climbing Trees. It's a project I'm very passionate about, as their manifesto is to challenge gender stereotypes and create clothing for girls who love dinosaurs, pirates, monsters, football etc. And today, they've finally launched their website, which is amazing! So my first freelance gig for childrenswear is now out there in the real world for people to buy! 

So that's it right now, I think I've covered the majority of what I've been up to! I'm currently working on two projects right now; another branding project and an e-book cover, all thanks to online platform Reedsy! Check out my designer's profile here.

I must remember to keep updating my blog as I go! Over and out!
