A set of three concepts for tea packaging, based on plants found in Skyrim, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings.
All illustrations started as hand-drawn scamps, scanned in and drawn over in Illustrator to achieve clean lines and to play with transparencies on elements that overlap. The typefaces are a mix of existing ones and hand-drawn typography, put together to give an eclectic feel to the designs.

Film Noir infographic
Tennessee Williams Blu-ray covers
Mockups for Blu-Ray covers for a fictional range of classic films based on Tennesee Williams plays, emphasizing the central characters: Elizabeth Taylor’s manipulative Maggie the Cat, and Marlon Brando’s violently masculine Stanley Kowalski. The erratic, hand-drawn quality of the type is used to reflect their highly emotional natures, and the splashes of colour tie in with their traits. Red stands for Stanley’s sanguine, violent nature; yellow represents Maggie’s choleric, restless, and jealous personality.

Letterpress business cards
Letterpress business cards for creativeJAW. See them also on behance and tumblr.
