During the summer while I was exhibiting some of my prints, an Edinburgh based design agency called “The Gate Worldwide” commissioned me to create a series of video camera illustrations for them. They wanted to redecorate their new client meeting room and the centre piece of this room was to be, along with the fantastic furniture by made.com my three prints.
Out of five video camera illustrations I provided them they chose three and it really was a great honour to have a international design agency like my illustrations enough to want to use them to decorate their office. This was a fantastic experience.
They finally finished refurbishing their client meeting room in the last week or two and so I finally got a chance to visit them to both see the prints hanging on the wall but also to “sign” my illustrations. Their meeting room is lovely and of course I’m biased but I thought the illustrations looked absolutely brilliant hanging on the wall (note to self, print more illustrations!). The prints were printed at A1 size and as I usually print most of my work at A3 or smaller this was awesome.
I felt really happy about the signing and “The Gate Worldwide” will also blog and tweet about the prints. I’ve had a few really great experiences with agencies recently including my first video interview (still embarrassed to watch it) and also this signing. Hopefully this will lead to good things in 2014.
Below are the five original video camera illustrations I produced of which the first three were chosen. Below that are also pictures of me signing and some photos of the meeting room.
