On a regular basis I do various bits of design and illustration work for Tobacco Factory. I don't often post up the work on here, as it's mostly design layouts, but I had more creative freedom on the look and feel of their Vintage & Retro market: Retroville. It happens on the first Sunday of every month - plenty of info if you click here.
Below are some of the early designs showing initial ideas.
Paper Scissors Stone Vol 3 is just round the corner (opening on Aug 1st, from 5pm) and I thought this would be a good moment to mention my hand (pardon the pun) in the design and illustration work behind Bristol's best pop-up shop. I've long had a fascination with drawing hands, so it was with pleasure that I developed the three images making up the illustrated logo for Paper Scissors Stone. I'll also be stocking some of my illustrated products in Vol 3, alongside the carefully curated selection of locally made work - organised by Made in Bristol.
I was invited by Absolute Design to hand-draw an intricate version of two archival illustrations with some slight modifications. The fighting ladies were then incorporated into the identity for the Olive Tree restaurant, while the gentleman became associated with the restaurant’s venue, The Queensbury Hotel.
