A friend was starting a hip-hop night in Manchester and I pitched some flyer and branding designs to him and the venue. It didn’t happen, but it was a lot of fun to get out the stencils, spraycans and markers and actually create the assets outside of the computer. That’s very much a way I work, I tend to find or apply analog solutions to digital problems because it usually looks a lot better, and it’s thinking outside the (beige or silver, humming, glowing) box.
Also as an art student I was obsessed with taking rubbings from water hydrants and manhole covers – this continued that work, the skull like faces fit the urban vibe. I still have some of the boards up on my wall!
