Beer Mat Characters

5 Dec

Yes, this post has been a long time in coming, but I was going through my stickies on my mac and re discovered my list of these beauties!

@InkyGoodness posted these on their twitter. From what I can tell, they held a beer mat character competition and a number of Illustrators have designed them. My personal favourite is the happy jellyfish one! They’re all linked to the original Instagram posts with the individual illustrators accredited to.

Chocolate with Elegance

18 Feb

Another live competition brief, this time from YCN. I chose the Green and Black’s brief, where we were asked to re-design the packaging of the chocolate. I actually found this difficult because I really like the simple and effective packaging design they have at the moment. I went down the sophisticated route, where I dressed the chocolate bars and ice cream tubs, as though they were going to a dinner party. Shown is the ice cream and chocolate bar in a tuxedo. I think that the outcome is quite rigid and therefore doesn’t reflect the company, Green and Black’s, properly. When I have more time, I will have another little look at this project, to improve it for my portfolio.
