Page spreads

Lately I have been busy experimenting with Adobe InDesign and looking at how I can actually fit my designs together. I need to carefully consider the size of the pages. Should I go landscape or portrait? Should I go A4 or A5?

Some of the examples that can be found here, feature some digitally added imagery as background features. This looks great, but I am keen to experiment with continuous collage and hand drawn imagery for the background too.

I have also really enjoyed using the feathering effect to enhance the edges of imagery.

Keep an eye out for hand drawn imagery examples and more colourful contrasts in the near future!

Best wishes!

Materialising

Okay, I don’t strictly mean “Materialising” in its usual form, but I have recently got to thinking about the likes of the Radley dog and the From Me to You bears, and I have been picturing just where else Tiger can appear alongside paper. I have started gathering images of materials and, with the power of Photoshop, worked to recreate with some embossing and layering options, just how Tiger may look on…

Leather (purses etc)

As you can see, I have varied the ways in which Tiger would appear on leather. Tiger is recognisable as a print and as also when embossed. There is also the question of whether a face would be preferred or not.

Towels

Quite often, towels come with an image of perhaps flowers or dolphins in the corner. Here we have none other but our favourite cat, Tiger!

T-Shirts and labelling

Here we have Tiger on a T-Shirt along with a potential labelling idea alongside it. With Tiger being such a fashionable cat, the idea of wearing him is sure to be a winner.

I shall continue to explore potential ideas for Tiger’s future. As always, I am keen to hear from you. Do you have any requests regarding Tiger? Do you have any opportunities where you are, for Tiger? I am always open to comments and suggestions.

Until next time, I shall love you and leave you.

Wishing you all a merry Valentine’s day!
