Octopot is a gardening company, and inventor of the “Octopot Gardening System”, a hybrid hydro/soil planter. They approached me about developing an info-graphic style illustration based on their CAD models.
Everything is vector for scalability in the future. I created some custom brushes in Adobe Illustrator for the roots and leaves, and vectorized some grunge textures to give the impression of soil and peat.
Next I designed an accompanying POP sign, and animated the illustration in Adobe After Effects for a simple GIF for web use.
I’m really happy with how this turned out, and so are they!
A tee design I created for Cleveland OH based apparel company “Keep Calm Cleveland”. They were inspired by the Crossroads Hockey Tournament tee I produced, and wanted a similar style playing off of the fact that Cleveland hasn’t won anything in 5 decades. (Ouch!). The Cleveland skyline and tight dynamic feel make for a universal design that they plan on printing on multiple apparel items.
Cool logo/tee design I finished up for “The Crossroads Tournament”. A kids hockey tournament in Chicago. The client’s request was simply a “Chicago” theme. I played off of the Chicago flag colors, got the little 6 point stars in there, with the skyline and some cool hockey sticks to tie it all together.
Another crazy candle label design I created for “The Cold War Candle Company”. A vanilla oak scent. Clients request was “Squirrels throwing Molotov cocktails at a group of rebelling acorns”. I thought it would be fun to make military style berets out of their caps. Definitely loved working on this!
