This blog was mainly created to serve as a place of visual inspiration. After a few months of seeing such great artists/creators and their impeccable craftsmanship, its hard not to be inspired. I’ve recently created a self promotional poster series that focuses on the idea of brand identification and beauty. I’m not exactly sure where the over all idea came from. I think it may have been an inspiration from the film Exit Through The Gift Shop with the Mr. Brainwash “Marilyn” prints. The beauty mark stood out to me and raised the question what is beauty? And why is there a mark associated with it?
The style of execution however, came from different places… I was super inspired by an earlier post on vintage photography. I knew then that stock images weren’t an option and enlisted the help of three friends that graciously posed as models for the project. The use of reversed out type was so well done in the Live The Language video series by Albin Holmqvist, I had to experiment with a similar execution.
The posters are 16 X 24, 4-color offset printing on 65# cougar, with a one color silver Pantone on the back. View more in the Work section.
