I was commissioned to create a design for a milestone birthday for one of my very best friends and fellow Beast Monkey founder and personality; Jose/Joe. So given that I was deep in a Hip-Hop Legends state of mind, I decided I might as well go with the flow and whip up something similar.
So I found a nice photo I could work with and set about blocking out the face shapes. I then set it up on a bunch of blob shapes set to the multiply transparency and that framed it up nicely, and which I thought fit perfectly with his unique personality.
The result was a fun and memorable design that could be used in many applications. A fun exercise and the kicker was that this design ended up being printed on party invites, t-shirts that were worn by all at his birthday party, and as a large canvas which was signed by all and presented to him in lieu of birthday cards; a fantastic idea I thought. All in all, a fun time was had by all and the design was very well received, to my delight.
What do you think? let me know in the comments.
