We’ve been insanely busy for the last week so today we’re only showing you a sneak peek of three illustrations that happened as a last-minute request. These are fragments of stories we made up for three well-known and well-loved figures. We’ll show you the whole pieces in near(ish) future.
For our post-wedding session we really wanted to pose with a bunch of huskies but, unfortunately, we don’t own such a pack. Luckily, one of our neighbors does and so we arranged to have the dogs pose with us in return for a logo for the company. We actually enjoyed this arrangement because it seemed like a fun challenge to design a logo-shaped husky. Also, we just like drawing dogs.
The company is a small family business, or really just a husky-lover who owns over twenty dogs and puts them to work by making them pull sled in winter and help in dogotherapy and sometimes pose for pictures with people like us. His are not exactly sports dogs so we decided to aim for a more friendly look.
Please be informed that this is for now work in progress.
The first logo uses a full dog silhouette with a grid of snow.
The other one is just a husky’s head that we took pains not to make too sports-team like so that it wouldn’t feel aggressive but more huggable (they are really huggable).
And here is one of our pictures with the monochromatic version of the logo.
Should you be superinterested in what it’s like to have your pictures taken with huskies, I wrote more about it here.
We are sorry that updates this month are a little irregular but we are in the middle of important – and time-consuming – personal stuff (which we’ll share some time when the dust of our running here and there settles). Today’s post is, thus, only a part of what we intended. But we’ll get better again.
We continue with re-shooting identity projects we did but this one we did not share with you before. This is the identity for a European program of workshops for industrial design and architecture students. We had some freedom with that: enough to go with grid-based custom lettering and the unusual color scheme, which made this project a lot of fun. We have plenty more images to show you but not enough time for editing, so the rest will follow soon.
This is a sneak peek at a cover illustration we are currently working on. It’s in very initial stages and might be dropped completely but as we spent quite a part of Saturday on it, we thought we’d at least share the result with you.
The illustration follows the client’s general idea to show a tree with flags among the leaves, the rest is our attempt to make it fun.
Today’s illustration comes from a bigger, obviously book-related publication we’re working on right now. We created simple portraits of twelve writers. Some of them you certainly know, some you might not have necessarily heard of as they are more local. This proved to be an amusing challenge and we will tell you more about it once we have the whole project to share.
