Computer Arts

“Bright” and “vibrant” were the key directions from UK magazine and website Computer Arts, which commissioned us to create an illustration for the inside cover of its Winter 2015 edition. This is definitely a sizeable accolade. 

The focal point of the image is the “Design Matters” logo, so I wanted to build on the logo and create a little world of its own. The decision was to create an illustrated fairground route as it meant there were lots of exciting objects and shapes with a stripped down colour palette. The design was used across the print magazine and the iPad version, which we created an animated version to compliment the print design.
