Big Mouth is a young illustrator’s Sherpa, guiding graduates through their first year out of university into the creative world. Six volumes have been designed and loaded with insider knowledge, helping creative minds find their feet as they take those all important steps into tackling the industry.

The six volumes are bi-montly and all focus on a different topic, ordered in a way that an illustrator will work. Starting off with volume 1- Me Myself and I, volume 2 - Self Promotion, volume 3-Get up and Go, volume 4- The Art of Networking, Volume 5- The importance of Agent and finally finishing on volume 6- Strength in Numbers. Each book comes with a screen printed box and poster, designed with a consistent mark and colour to the corresponding issue.

The visual style takes inspiration from the 1970's punk aesthetic, the DIY approach, colour and attitude the style portrays but brought to a more current and up to date visual reflective of the content and target audience. This is achieved through the use of brush strokes, mark making and hand done typography paired with the chosen conceptual imagery and chosen typeface of futura.
