Whilst I was doing my work for the exhibition based on Christmas in London I researched illustrators which had drawn line drawings of London. Laura Barnard is an illustrator who draws cityscapes. Below are my two favourite pieces:
This was designed for the new MRops website (a global research company). I like her style of line drawing as it emphasises the patterns and details of the buildings which creates depth within the work. The busy composition and the subject matter I think represent their strength as a company as they are showing the tops of the skyscrapers and famous business buildings.
However I don’t feel that the work reflects the idea that this is a global company and therefore would represent the company better if buildings were included from other strong business countries.
This illustration was designed for Ted Baker’s Whistle & Flute plush suit book. I like how Barnard has used a thin black line which creates an appearance of delicacy and the lines are neat and precise which reflects the brand and the idea that these are ‘the best suits’. However I think that the typography could be both to make it more obvious and to advertise the brand better.
