More Kids Stuff

Posted by on Jan 4, 2013 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Here is another kids related project I helped out on late last year. It’s an identity for a local high-end kids fashion store. I was responsible for  a small illustration and the styling of the wordmark/logo. I actually experimented with real needles and threads for the wordmark (see below), but in the end a vector version was used for it’s scalability. Nonetheless it was fun to work on. As for the illustration, the final piece looks quite simple and elegant but it actually went through quite a few iterations before I got the right look and feel.

Babybot in Dinoland!

Posted by on Dec 10, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Blik and Babybot teamed up again this year for some fantastic dino-themed wall decals. Babybot noticed that there was no dinosaur wall decals on Blik’s site and kids love dinosuars for their rooms!

So the story goes that the Cyclop Twins crash-landed in Dinoland and discovered Dino’s (who was in the original Babybot family btw) long lost family. The challenge for me was to get a look that has the right balance of modern style and dino/bot goodness. Pretty happy with the end result and hope the sets of decals will grace the walls of many happy kids soon.

Have a closer look at Blik or Babybot‘s site if you are a dino fan. There is also a contest running from both of them so be sure to enter for a chance to win!

Year of Blik

Posted by on Sep 14, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Have not had a decent blog update since the beginning of the year. That’s because I’ve been busy with a slew of projects in the last 6 months. (One of them being my new role as parent!) Here is a sneak peek of something I’ve been cooking up for a custom Blik project. This is the first time that I’ve done illustration for a project of this scale so I’m super excited. The custom Blik should be installed in the next couple of weeks…can’t wait to see it all come together!

Also, there will be some more Babybot Blik goodness coming soon. Stay tuned!

Karo Christmas Conundrum

Posted by on Mar 1, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Towards the end of 2011 I finished a massive amount of Christmas work. The Karo Christmas eCard was one of them. I wanted to try out a cup paper illustration style initially, but because of time constraint I had to create it entirely in After Effects. It was a fun experiment to see how far I could get using just AE alone. I put together a quick little video to show how it works

Blik Decals Update

Posted by on Oct 28, 2011 in Uncategorized | No Comments

The Blik decals are finally up! There are four decals in total and you can check them out over at Blik‘s website. There’s even a facebook contest going on to win one of the decals that Babybot fans should check out if they want one for free.

It was a great experience working on the illustration. There are certain limitations when it comes to designing wall decals (e.g. things being too intricate and hard to peel and apply) but all in all, the decals turned out really great. I am especially curious about what people will do with Doodle and Build-A-Bot. Love a product when it gives the user freedom of creativity.

Ooo…and I also did the quick illustration for the barenaked contest…soooo cute.

(Thanks for the great pics Blik!)
