These two shots were taken in January and December this year and are pretty representative of one part of my work process. Printing test strips for exhibition graphics is crucial to test colours, resolution, legibility from a distance, aesthetics and all that other good stuff.
They also represent different roles I can play in an exhibition project. The dinosaur was a retouching job only, I wasn't involved in the exhibition or marketing design. On the other job I was the sole designer, meaning I took the brief, presented a number of concepts to my client and once we'd finished distilling the design, I artworked the resulting x25 pieces for manufacture. (The latter is still with the print house so I'll post pictures once it's installed).
Want to know more about artworking and the crucial role it plays in the design process? Read this little piece I wrote a while back:
