Earlier in the year I was commissioned by Ferrier Pearce to deliver on a series of illustrations for Barclays Pensions communications.
The illustrations needed to communicate the benefits an individuals contributions can have on a pension. The two individuals, Karl and Jane comparing their individual contributions in a ‘comic book’ approach using a modern-day simplified digital style. The key style specification was integrating elements of texture. The series includes illustrations representing a ‘Karl and Jane under 55 years’ and a ‘Karl and Jane over 55 years of age’ in conversation whilst out on an afternoon cycle.
I drew inspiration from many online resources when setting out to achieve the integration of texture within the simplistic digital style. After sketching out the individual characters, Karl and Jane ‘under age 55’ and a Karl and Jane ‘over 55’ , the individual frames of the storyboard were then completed using illustrator and photoshop.
