The Ray Hille story

The Principal of my old school, Mr. Ray Hille, is retiring after eighteen years of service. Having gone to The Peninsula School for 12 years, I've known him my whole schooling life. Tomorrow night is a farewell gathering for Ray and I decided to make an illustration for him. These two are the roughs for the final product.

I would post the final image here but I want to show it in nicer quality, the above was taken on my phone. Maybe I could get one with Ray, the picture and I! Brilliant!

Between The Pages, Chapter One

Alright, so Ryan, the photographer and friend I collaborated with for the Footloose program, is having his first ever solo exhibition' Between the Pages'. Owing him a favour for the program, I was only too happy to help when he asked me to generate some publicity material.

Today, we got a lot done. The mag ad and the DL flyer invites are done, they're being sent off to the gallery for final approval. Now we've got to print those and start working on the special edition invites of which Ryan will release fifty, very exciting. Final product to come shortly.

Ryan with his dog Rupert, whom he pretends to dislike...

Sneak peek of what's to come.

Yours truly working his magic.

Rupert offering his unconditional support.

This is a TV ad for htc phones. Finally there' s an ad that illustrates how we as humans interact with phones rather than as consumers. Nobody likes to think of themselves as part of a mass, we are individuals and we are flattered when we are told that. What I think we need more of in design is humanity, emotion, reality. It's the most engaging way to gain somebody's imagination. Have a look, there's at least one situation in there that you can relate to.
