Character design for companies and corporations for their internal and external communication. Logos, mascots, fun and striking illustrations.
For internal use for presentations, pitches or in-house publications or for external PR, advertising or promotional material.
Crisp, clean and professional artwork. Tailor made and executed as vector or bitmap art.
Here are two examples of illustration artwork and character designs that I had the pleasure of creating for some of my clients.
The first is a stylized version of Joseph von Fraunhofer for the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft.
Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment. As a result, the work undertaken by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. We are creative. We shape technology. We design products. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new vistas. In short, we forge the future.
The character was used on the web and print and in animation for events and youth-related contests. After a sketch and design phase, final artwork was created as vector art in Adobe Illustrator CS3.
The second is a poster for Norman Corwin, The Odyssey of Runyon Jones, Anthracite Films. This artwork was again vector art based and created in Adobe Illustrator CS5.
