Project: Bristol Pound
Services: Digital Illustration
One of my illustration has been selected as one of the winners for the Bristol Pound 2018 design competition and is now printed on all £B20 Bristol Pound's banknotes!
In my design the SS Great Britain is elevated in the sky by a delicate wave, almost floating, ready for new adventures. The water is used as a medium to tell the story of the ship, with the aid of words. The sky is pink/red, from the saying used by mariners “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning”. Here I’d like the viewer to decide what that means, it could either be a morning with rain coming or it could be an evening with a sunny day ahead.
The judges loved the contemporary ideas in this design. They agreed that the SS Great Britain elevated into the sky is a powerful image and the writing in the water is a lovely effect.
