Start at the very beginning

It’s that time again – the business cards need a refresh. Today I have been playing with ideas for a new design.

After a bit of head-scratching I decided to base the illustrative components around the practical aspects of image making. As a starting point, I sketched out some of the basic tools of the trade.

I’d like to incorporate some of these as elements of the design, but having made these sketches I decided I’d also like to include some more organic, flowing elements too.

Hurrah! An idea has begun to take shape – phew!

Back to the sketchbook for now,  before staring work on the high-res artwork 🙂
