Update on the london poster. Decided to go for a more detailed skyline view of the city. Still not finished, but these are a few of the colour combinations I tried out once the main graphic design of the buildings was done. Next step is to try to even out some of the fiddlier details and get it all as bold as can be. Then a bus shall be added. A big red bus so that the world shall know that this be London.

I'm currently making some posters for a company in Folkestone, who intend to sell the posters during the Folkestone Triennial festival this summer. I'm making 5 posters of Folkestone, but they're not quite finished yet so I'm going to hold off putting them up on here til they're totally done and dusted. I'm also making a London poster for them (a lot of the people visiting Folkestone for the Triennial will be from London so we figured they might like a poster of their home town) and attached to this post are 3 of my early roughs for what the poster might have looked like. In the end we decided to go with something more detailed, but these three are all good in their own 'Paul Catherall' kind of way. I guess the problem was that they're too close to the 'Paul Catherall' style, which kind of highlighted the fact that they wern't as good as his stuff. Still nice though.

These are early designs for a 30 second advert for an american haulage / home removals company. In the end the job got posponed indefinitely. Shame really as I really liked these designs and was looking forward to making a really stylised 50's 'cartoon modern' advert.
