Reboot

July 6, 2010

Some current news. Between finishing Oficina de Portfolio with a powerful public exhibition, going to Belgium over Erasmus (and concluding my degree meanwhile), and now to be starting a life in South Holland, Netherlands, quite a bit has happened.

Best to think of this as a fresh start. Welcome back.

Randoming About

(who knows, everyone seems to be doing weird conceptual designs).

Chick is Freak

Working About

June 12, 2009

First, something I was requested, a cover-like design to represent her. Went for a electro/retro feel.

da chick 3
da chick 4

And the one she liked and took:

da chick 2

One extremely frustrating thing is, due to lack of human or material resources, or plain inexperience, being unable to reproduce an idea bouncing around in your head. But I digress.

Also this;
superbock 1
superbock 2

I like the second guitar better. Anyhow, this was delivered like a couple hours ago, wrapped and sent to a design contest from a national beer company, Super Bock. They seem to want to populate Lisboa with giant, 6 metre tall guitars, and the 5 winning entries will be featured in this way. The point was to create something both related to Portugal and Super Bock, while being real and emotional.

Anyway,
Cheers!

Whipped without much thought really.

And to make this more meaningful, I’m currently enrolled in some Illustrator classes, which by this monday and thursday I’ll start a project using it, to help build up skills.

Salvador Dali

April 29, 2009

I have this project that needs to be done about some random person, to which I picked Salvador Dali, being an extremely influential creative individual both in society at the time to even nowdays, and by agreeing with many feelings and aspects he expressed via his personality, and subsequently via drawings, acting, photography, etc.

Anyway, doing a complex cover is not exactly necessary, nonthless, I found this as an opportunity to motivate and set myself an aim at creativity. Here’s a few results, I should produce more as ideas come along, there’s still plenty of time before I need this delivered.

If able, I’ll probably print one of the oil canvas ones in an actual canvas, should give a nice, visual, tactile appeal.

Cheers!

University Ribbon

April 26, 2009

Anyway, in Portugal there’s this custom where soon-to-be-graduates hand out ribbons to others, so they can write things, wishing good luck, etc. Which brings me, I was handed this kind of ribbon, and went to work!; now all there’s left is to write a message and hand it out. Here’s the design, which I found funny how I ended up “sketching” in photoshop and doing the actual work as I went (also doing by pen and without the addition of color, that became mandatory halfway).

And here’s the drawn out work, added with details and fleshed out as needed;

detail-15
detail-24
detail-33

Custom is to write messages and such, but I find they all end up being the same archetypes – the person in question knows I wish them the best of everything, so I might as well draw in something that carries some meaning, diferentiates from other ribbons and relates to the person in question.

Cheers!
