Saul Bass

School work again. This one is from my very first semester at the university. In the Graphic Design History class we had to draw from various names of graphic designers that were put on little pieces of paper, and then make a 4-page publication about that guy in a style that he used to have. Mine was Saul Bass, whose work I already had liked a lot by that time. You can check out some of his work at notcoming.com under this link: http://notcoming.com/saulbass/index.php
At that time it was only his work featured on notcoming.com, but now I visited the site, and found that by now it features a lot more films that are not coming to a theatre near you.

My Crest

Last semester we had to create a crest for ourselves, and this is mine. The way I make such a thing is that I first draw it on paper, than scan it, and recreate it in Adobe Illustrator, so the result is a scalable vector image.
I also made a colored version (red and orange as far as I remember), but I prefer this B/W one.
I don't use it though, maybe I should.

Another poster for Billy Eliot

Another version of the Billy Eliot poster that I made for school. I myself prefer this one over the previous one, as here it is not that obvious that the upper arm on the left is too short. I don't think that this poster conveys what Billy Eliot is all about, but as a poster, it's not bad. The main idea here was simply that Billy was the only boy in the ballet school in his hometown.

Inspiration: An Italian Flair

I found these images on The Sartorialist blog. Nice and inspirative. I love what could be called an Italian feeling, Italian easy living, an elegant yet casual way of l ife.
