I’ve been busy with several client projects, none of which I can show yet since they’re either under NDA or still in production, but I can show you some personal work :)

This started out as an entry to Lilla Rogers’ Global Talent Search contest where the winner gets two years of representation from Lilla Rogers Studio. I’m ineligible to enter as I already have agency representation but I liked the contest brief and thought I would work on it anyway, for fun and to possibly add to my portfolio.

I’m not at liberty to share the exact details of the contest brief but I am allowed to say that the brief was to design a playground-themed journal cover as if it were commissioned by lovely UK-based stationery brand Paperchase. It is one of my dreams/career goals to design something for Paperchase someday (for real, and not through a contest). I wish we had Paperchase in the Philippines. I’ve no interest at all in the foreign brands coming in to Manila lately, like IHOP and American Eagle Outfitters (although I do love Uniqlo!). Give me Paperchase! Give me kikki.K!

But anyway, here’s my take on the playground brief. This is my proposed journal cover:

The brief only requires a journal cover, but I expanded these illustrations to include some repeating patterns…

…and reformatted the illustrations into a poster layout.

In fact, I’ve made these illustrations available on a variety of merchandise on my Society6 shop.

 

Check it out– there are iPhone cases, prints, shirts, hoodies, tote bags, and more. I myself ordered a print to check out the quality (Society6 products are produced and shipped from the US— I don’t have any of my merchandise on hand) and I believe it will be arriving in my hands soon. I’ll have another blog post up then when I receive it :)
