Penguin Book Design

My entry for the penguin design award; a book jacket for One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Really pleased with the outcome.

Oranges or Icecream?

I love my Mac and photoshop and everything, but at heart I love to create stuff from scratch with paints, inks, pens and paper. I miss doing this kind of work and I don't think because I am a graphic designer that I can't use traditional media.

This project is based on being indecisive - which I am myself but trying (after researching) to make better. It has a raw, painted feel - I wanted it colourful, sketchy, like a thought book of how you feel when you are as indecisive as me. I had a lot of fun doing this and now its been sent off to blurb and hopefully I'll get a real life book in the post in a couple of weeks.

Its called Oranges and Icecream becaauuuse I like quirky titles and it just sounds ridiculous, like why would you ever be in that situation where you need to pick between some oranges and ice-cream?


I finally have a real life website up now, its still in the process of being constructed and
more work to add but have a look :)
