Aaaand another project completed recently, just a little poster design for Uni Xmas Party. Never made something into so many different formats as I had to make a double sided flyer, TV ad and a web ad from this poster so I’m sure it was all a useful learning curve! I always find it a little bit of a struggle making posters when there are so many design specifications with all the fiddly little logos interrupting everything…

This was a couple of months back, but these are my finished entries for the Ally Capellino bag competition – brief was to create a simple graphic design based on London 2012. These got onto the website but didn’t make the final cut; think on reflection looking at the winning entries that these are a bit too complex. Have to bear in mind for future not to get too carried away when there’s a brief to follow…
Here are 2 versions of the ‘London Scape 2012’ design:
And this is the ‘Olympics Kit’ bag design:

This post is a little late but better that than never..
I said I would help my fellow illustrator friend out with a mural he had designed for our local (and my current place of employment). It was a lot of fun, especially getting to paint in front of people in a public place as normally illustration-ing tends to happen in dark bedrooms and studios! This is it from start to finish:

So I have gone and finished a new project already! Without even posting one development post..! I will eventually get back to using this blog properly but for now I have very limited internet access so will have to carry on with the post-every-few-of-weeks method.
Anyway this was a recent commission to develop a logo and related imagery for this lovely company:
I have completed some different designs based on one main magpie image, including variations on a frame/mirror idea. As the company spots new play scripts to research and develop, the frame acts as the boundary for the magpie, mirroring him back at us like plays mirror real life. The space created by the frame could also be portrayed as a stage.

I now have a brand new, only-a-day-old website which was, with a lot of help, built from scratch! I’ll still be using this blog to show developing projects and general news but please also visit http://www.sarahkirkillustration.com for links to my shop and portfolio.

So pretty much finished my paintings for my landscape mini project… Unfortunately I didn’t really have to time to take progress pictures so these are the final things I’ve handed in for assessment. I’m really happy with the first and last paintings, I think the other two still need some work, but I will play around with them for the degree show I think:
