- RedKnot Promo Poster
Digital Print - ~18x24"
- I was commissioned to create a poster for a mobile app that helps traveling students find a place to stay while on their adventures. Creative freedom was widespread throughout this project and I had come up with a few ideas and sketches that I thought conveyed the point well. Below is the final piece, some details to each, and some sketches at the bottom.
- My concept was to show the bird (a Redknot bird) with a backpack and some travel gear atthe cliff of a hike, looking down below for a place to stay. With his phone, he's able to see all the places, some available and some not.
- Usually my sketches are very very rough, but in this case I wanted to use some new digital brushes I had created and also purchased. I used a black pen brush and a very low opacity cover ink brush - this process helped me a lot here. I'm not sure how often I'll digitally sketch but i had fun with this one.
- The poster is for print so I wanted to add some fun, smaller detail for anyone that was close enough to see it
- Here's an early sketch of an alternative concept. This was a first person perspective where everything through the viewport of the iphone would have a UI overlayed, and everything outside would be normal. I thought the portrait layout would work better with the other style.Lets socialize!
