It’s all go in my little studio, with my preparations for the New York shows. BLUEPRINT and Surtex are fast approaching and I’m still creating new designs. I have yet to design my postcards, to be printed in the US, so keeping the delivery costs to a minimum. It feels like there’s still so much to do. However, pressure notwithstanding, I am very excited about exhibiting in New York, and I very much hope to impress clients with my portfolio of work!

I have designed a set of BLUEPRINT and Surtex 2017 flyers. Both are based on previous designs. My Surtex flyer is a progression of a design I did on the MATS A course, and my BLUEPRINT flyer makes use of a singing angel from the latest Rise Design and Shine course. Both are excellent courses and I would highly recommend giving them a go if you want to build on your existing portfolio.

So far, I’ve shared my BLUEPRINT and Surtex 2017 flyers on Instagram. I know that many other designers are doing this to try maximise exposure. You can also see my Surtex flyer on the Rise design and Shine blog. My agent Brenda Manley,  has shared my flyer designs too.

 

Have a great week!

There’s not long to go until the New York shows, and I’ve created my first, Blue Print flyer design especially for this exciting event! For my flyer, I have used a map of Lapland, which I designed for week nine’s Wanderlust theme on the Rise Design and Shine course. It was a difficult decision selecting which design from my portfolio to use for the flyer, as I would be representing myself as one of Brenda Manley‘s artists. However, after I had created the map, I knew that I had to use it. It made sense to use the map because of the colours and illustrations in this design. I believe it demonstrates my style perfectly; painterly, playful, colourful and contemporary.

I so wish I could be at Blue Print and Surtex this year, in person, but unfortunately I can’t yet afford it. I’m intending to go next year, however, from what I’ve seen on social media, the trade shows look amazing and I imagine they each have a fantastic atmosphere, as well as a huge array of wonderful designs!

Here’s my finished Blue Print flyer design. I may also end up making one for Surtex. I will try to fit that in, when creating new work for the shows.

Are you exhibiting at Blue Print and Surtex or even helping out at the shows?  Will you be representing yourself or going with an agency?

 

Enjoy the rest of your week!
