Digital painting by Matthew Leonard

My brother is an aspiring graphic designer with huge potential, he works on many different amazing projects from poster design, logos and of course he has this amazing skill of designing digital paintings. I have been asking for a while for him to paint me, and yesterday he showed me the best surprise ever by showing me this! Absolutely brilliant! This kid will go far!

New Prints! Final Major Project!

Today I have finally printed my new designs! I am really happy with the way they look and feel they explore my theme of natural forms in an abstract and fun way.
I have chosen a bright colour palette, a mix of pastels and more vibrant tones! I have also explored this seasons trend of ombré and blurred visions!
Overall I am happy with the outcome, and feel once they are made into fronts I will be ready to put them up in the final show!

Made in Jesmond...

We have set up the shop window in Made in Jesmond and it looks amazing! So for unique and hand designed items this is the perfect place to be! 

I am selling my own scarves in the shop, on the images below you are able to see the shop window which i helped merchandise as well as the merchandising team outside the newly finished window!
Vey pleased with the overall look of the shop and hopefully the products will sell well! 

Great North Museum Archives!

It's been a while since i last posted but i have been very busy! I attended a placement at Westcott Design Ltd in London to get a great experience of working in the printed textiles industry! It proved to be a valuable time, and i feel the things i learned on the way helped me realise new and exciting ways of using print. 
I would love to share my most recent photographs which i am currently taking into print, my FMP is based on natural forms and taking inspiration from these images and some amazing ones i have posted on my Pinterest pages, I hope to create a interesting print! 
The images were taking at a private viewing at the Great North Museum's archives and i focused my attention on the bones and antler room...

When beginning to brand myself I needed to think of ways in which I could successfully do this, so I have came up with the idea of this brand logo for myself which shows off my work and my area of specialism. I have used some of my most recent designs to the branding and I am hoping that these are going to prove a successful way of putting my name out into industry!
