I have been really having fun making clock designs to sell on Redbubble. I dont quite remember the last time I had a spare moment to myself let alone full time creative freedom. It’s nice. Here are four clocks I have designed that Redbubble print and manufacture.
I have designed a clock that is for sale on redbubble.
It has been really interesting for me to see how much the trend of print mockups has been on the internet as a way to showcase your work. Not so long ago when I first was adding portfolio items to behance I was using just screenshots of my files and now I take the time (which is getting quicker and quicker) to make mockup images. They really do tell the story better and are instantly recognisable. It is not until I see the two side-by-side that I realise this is a trend that will not be going away and this is something I am very happy with.
It certainly makes a difference when showing spreads of a book. Previously I felt the need to show the spine and edges otherwise there is no context.
I really do not think the difference is as profound with the cover but certainly, it is more obvious that this is a book cover and not a flyer or something else.But when showing something really quite big, like a billboard, the mockups are simply wonderful because it is so much easier to understand the scale in this context.
Obviously inspired by the work of Andy Warhol. This is Chester Carlson (the guy who invented “electro photography” AKA the photocopy. I call it Photocopy of a Photocopy. I made this for the PrintEx11 poster competition.
I have spent some time today giving Lakazdi.com a much needed facelift today. For those who do not know, Lakazdi is the name I use for all my professional document design work. I’ve been making books, forms and other documents.
