1. Educational Illustration Projects

NT VISITOR REVIEW: One of the best trails for kids we have experienced at a National Trust property. It definitely got them looking around and we spent a good hour and a half in there, normally we'd last 20 mins tops!

BOOK ILLUSTRATION, FONT, DESIGN and LAYOUT


I created this fully illustrated project as a commission for the National Portrait Gallery (NPG) and also National Trust at Montacute House, for their new portrait exhibition.

I designed the booklet, with the guidance of Montacute House (National Trust), for families to enjoy; primarily educational; full of activities and discovery.

It was designed to support a new collection of historic NPG portrait paintings chosen by postgraduates of Bristol University, for Montacute House to display, to commemorate the centenary of Women's Suffrage 2018. Therefore, it is based heavily on 'strong women in history'.


I used mixed media for the final draft concept, but predominantly pen and ink and digital design were used from the outset of the project.


I enjoy detail and artwork that shows you something new each time you look at it. There is so much to find in the Tudor portraits of this exhibition. So I incorporated this into my illustrations to give children and adults something new to find and wonder about, even after the Montacute House experience..

"Sally presented me with a range of contrasting and imaginative design ideas for my book cover.   The difficult task for me was which one to choose!

A thoroughly professional designer/illustrator. I will definitely use her again for my next project."

4. Album Cover Designs

DOUBLE PAGE SPREADS WITH INTERACTIVE ELEMENTS FOR CHILDREN -


PETER AND THE WOLF illustrations for a BA project.

This was my own design brief. To design double page spreads to accompany the music for the story of Peter anf the Wolf, by Sergei Prokofiev.

I did not want to use words, rather let the music tell the story and the illustrations support in educating children and parents of how music can evoke an emotional response to different moods within the music. In this case, the element of surprise and peril created by heightened suspense (the violins); a fear from a dark presence (the French Horn) and peril (the flute and the oboe).

3. Book Illustration Projects

BOOK ILLUSTRATION

AND LAYOUT:


Double page spread designed for a book about Folklore. Each chapter focused on an area of the world; in this case England and the illustration supported one of the folklores associated with this country. I chose the poem Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti, as I felt it supported both the country of origin and the folklore and helped to tie the spread together. It is also one of my favourite poems as it ignites such strong imagery.


The  illustration was created  by hand, using pen and ink, watercolour, inks and coloured pencils. The book subtitle typeface is an Anglo Saxon font, with the initial ā€˜Eā€™ created by hand, using pen and ink and scanned into Photoshop .

ALBUM COVER DESIGN:


(DIVERS by Joanna Newsom)


This cover was designed for a BA project.

I chose a newly released album and a non-mainstream artist, so that I would not be influenced by a well known, well copied, cover. I am also a fan of Joanna Newsom so it was a pleasure  creating this cover.

Inspired by Joanna Newsom herself and her dedication to her art, I researched all of the hidden stories and poems linked to the album and was heavily inspired by these alone. The finished cover, whilst ethereal in communication, represents many of the stories within the album.

I used oil pastel to build up the cave painting type imagery, photography, pen and ink and digital software.

5. Interactive online magazine

ALBUM COVER DESIGN illustrations for 'CONTRAST' album for the London band, 'Get Your Head Straight'



The brief was very specific which helped to speed up the design stage.

Detail was the main brief request, including a strong outline to all the elements.

The internal cover illustrations contrast that of the external album cover.

EDITORIAL DESIGN, ILLUSTRATION, PHOTOGRAPHY, LAYOUT AND TYPOGRAPHY


This interactive magazine article was produced using Adobe In-Design. I also used Photoshop where I needed to enhance the photos and create the illustration files from my hand drawn illustrations.


The background image was taken on a bright spring morning, spying on the egrets at Shapwick Heath.


The whole article is interactive with animation and video. However, I have only uploaded the screenshots of the article for viewing here.

This page was inspired by the background photo that I took of this beautiful view.


As the page opens, the words: Glastonbury Tor hovers on its own along the base of the Tor, before further text appears from the left and right.

 

The birds are animated and fly across the page in two directions, before bringing in the smaller photos and the Jerusalem paragraph.


All photographs and illustrations were produced by me.

This page was inspired by the many rhines criss crossing the flat wetland areas. They run like fosseways; roads running for miles, straight to the horizon.


The illustrations and photos are my own.


This page includes a photo montage, with interactive bird toggles.

ALBUM COVER DESIGN:


FACE YOUR FEAR

by Santiago Street Machine


This cover was created for a competition to design an album cover, promoted through social media.

I used my own photography of street art, illustration and Adobe Photoshop to create it.

I used the concept of ' looking into the face of evil' and whilst doing so, I thought about what the devil would  fear and concluded with the balance of good and evil; ying and yang. And this is where I came up with the two faces facing each other; almost  as a mirror image.

This page was inspired by my own experience of seeing a starling murmuration for the first time, as described in the text.


The illustrations of the birds, the pollarded willows and the  photographic background image are my own. Other images have been credited.
