Unveil magazine

For my specialist pathways brief, i decided to assign myself a brief of creating a new creative arts and fashion magazine. I had to brand this magazine and also create illustrations for some of the articles that would feature in this magazine.

The target group were: young, sophisticated people who appreciate design and fashion. 
This small niche target market allowed me to focus on what they would want to see in a magazine of this nature (contents and design etc) 

The final design idea was a periodical highly aesthetic-produced magazine. Designed to be published twice a year at the same time as either the s/s fashion or the a/w fashion. The magazine was to be made with good quality textured paper throughout, and also to include some fabric. To be contained in a white protective case.

I have not included every page i deigned but the photos show a good over view i hope of my work.
(All images found on google-images and used because it worked with the magazine, if this was produced and sold then all images would not be used without owners consent etc)

I hope you like my design :)

Back at Uni + New etsy shop!

Well it has certainly been a busy summer for me! I am back at university now for my final year and we have so much to do. I am currently spreading my time over the week to 3 modules and also part time work. My 3 modules consist of the dissertation, which I am going to be studying about fashion illustration and how this artists role has changed and why. The second module is specialist pathways and I am specializing in illustration, to produce the branding of a new arts and fashion magazine and also to illustrate the articles that accompany this magazine. The final brief is Digital New Media studies which consists of a brief, and also writing/presentation/test. I have found a suitable brief of designing a magazine tablet which is proving to be very interesting. I will post up my progress along the way I am sure it is going to be a very valuable and exciting final year.

I have in my spare time (the small tiny amount that i can spare) been able to finally set up my new Etsy shop. I was very excited to be able to get it onto my website and add the new listings of my beautiful work. Please go take a look, there is hopefully something you will fall in love with and will want to buy :)

First Blog Post!

Hello :)
This is my first blog post, I don't really know why it has taken me so long to start blogging. I guess I have time at the moment as I am waiting to go back to Uni for my final year, exciting!
Anyways I am kass and I will be blogging my process on my illustrations and graphic design and also general stuff I love. I hope you find my work interesting and hopefully within the next year it will have developed and gotten stronger.

For my second year project I decided to focus on illustration based on fashion and fashion look books, it was circus themed and so I will post it up just so you can see my current (progressing stage) of ilustration style right now.
