ROLE: GRAPHIC DESIGN & ILLUSTRATION

 

This was a super fun project I recently created using rock-n-roll themed graphics; all hand-illustrated in Adobe Illustrator. The creative thought process focused on my love for playing guitar and the raw grungy, energy of Rock music; all were interpreted in my graphics.

Design Challenge: My focus was to get all graphics looking great on a smaller scale for the business card size and reads easily.

 

Design Solution: Keep items bold and simple.  The use of colors and tonal hierarchy  helped to tie elements together while making legibility the most important factor.
