These fun new items represent the very first designs by Ian David Marsden for RITZENHOFF. They are part of the Kitchen Farm series.

The kitchen farm is made up of a sweet little sugar bird, a happy-go-lucky salt piggy, a small herb jar with a cute bunny relaxing and smelling the flowers and a large herb jar with a cow holding a piece of chalk, ready to mark the jar contents for you.

The herb jars are made out of finest porcelain china with real wood lids featuring air-tight rubber interior seals. Both the small and large jars are stackable and there is a practical area on each herb jar on which the contents can be hand-written in chalk.
(Each jar comes with a bag of chalk inside.)

“My kitchen farm design is certainly influenced by happy memories of summer days spent on farms and vineyards, in the South of France, Tuscany, in Switzerland, and other wonderful locations.

Sunny, seemingly endless days, happy animals, the smell of fresh coffee brewing and delicious food being prepared in the kitchen and the delicious aroma of the grass, hay and herbs in the air.”

 - Ian David Marsden

 

“Mein Kitchen Farm Design ist sicherlich beeinflusst von glücklichen Erinnerungen an wunderbare Sommertage die ich auf Bauernhöfen und Weingütern in Südfrankreich, der Toscana, der Schweiz und anderen wunderbaren Orten geniessen konnte.

Sonnige, scheinbar endlose Tage, glückliche Tiere, der Duft von frischem Kaffee und feinen Speisen der aus dem Küchenfenster über den Hof schwebt und das köstliche Aroma von Gras, Heu und Kräutern die in der Luft allgegenwärtig sind.”

 - Ian David Marsden

“The Pianist” Freehand Sketch in Photoshop for my Facebook Page

A quick and rough digital cartoon scribble in Photoshop for my Facebook Page.

My Facebook page is HERE by the way, hint hint, if you feel like giving it a “Like” :)

Here is an image of the final result and also a YouTube video of the entire drawing process, uncut.

This sketch was made in under 30 Minutes but for the purpose of the video I sped the action up to around 9 Minutes.

I hope you enjoy it. Cheers!

Retro Style Illustrated Advertising Poster Art

Retro Style Illustrated Advertising Poster Art

This was a fun project to create an old-fashioned style advertising poster for a fictitious ‘ELECTRON’ brand chain of “electric’ car charging stations.
The nostalgic fifties feel was enhanced by having an old Peugeot 403 with it’s little electric flap open in the front, ready to be charged fully by the smiling and attentive pin-up girl gas station attendant.

I tried to design the actual logo and little mascot for ELECTRON in a style fitting and adhering to classic fifties logo and character design to add to the semi-authentic feel.

This piece was printed as a poster run and was also a portfolio piece to showcase my work. It was created entirely as vector art in Adobe Illustrator using a Wacom Cintiq display.

Below are a few examples for character designs and line art illustrations that were developed for a comic strip for internal company publications. The style was to be clean and fun but also remain business like.
Clean line art, kept in black and white, with a few corporate spot colors. The story concepts would revolve around actual office themes and current projects, and sometimes also contain lighthearted tips and reminders.

Such custom designed spot illustrations can lighten up even rather dry copy and focus your attention on important passages. What’s more is that often the fee for a custom created series of illustrations is pretty much the same as what you would expect to pay for pre-existing stock art images. Except of course they look and feel custom tailored to your project and therefore elevate the production value considerably.
