PRESS & RELEASE 2012 ILLUSTRATION
Client: Phoenix Brighton
To create an arresting and memorable image for use in promoting the Press & Release exhibition guide in both printed and online formats. The image had to embody the spirit of the exhibition, which celebrates the imaginative, edgy world of artists’ books. The image was to feature on the cover of the exhibition guide, posters and e-invite. All art and design work had to adhere to Brighton Phoenix branding guidelines.
The main image is a speculative rendering of a mechanical print press with echoes of Hoe's six-cylinder and the Platen press. I created the illustration using a Wacom Intuous3 graphics tablet and Adobe Illustrator.
