Illustration Challenge: Can anything can be interesting?
First, we need to say that sometimes you just need to have some fun and play with design. All work and no play makes an artist dull. After, we came across a fun social media challenge to recreate a simple photograph into something new. And what a better way to show off our design chops than to turn something ordinary into an awesome illustration?
Since we’ve done illustrations for Ford, Costa, and a variety of other clients, so it was a treat to take some time and explore our creativity. After plenty of searching, finding a challenge that captures TOBF spirit was too tempting to pass up. We decided to photograph one of the most hardworking tools handy around TOBF’s office, our most beloved spray paint can. It’s funny how you can take for granted every day objects and stop seeing them. Now, feast your eyes. He’s quite the looker in his birthday suit, no?
On Your Mark！
The overworked designer’s cry
Graffiti Guide: Masks are necessary. Keep a marker on standby.
Spray paint cans are our “oxygen tanks”. We’re breathless after a day without play.
Finally! A must-have for interns! Doraemo’s magical shot of creativity. Inject design skills in three seconds flat. Warning: Occasional cases of inspirational overdrive have occurred.
Navigating rough waters is part of the job, but the light of creativity always
guides us home.
Sometimes a little negativity rains down. You ‘ve got to have thick skin (or an umbrella).
Take a look around. There are plenty of ordinary objects waiting to be reimagined. Join us in imaginating the ordinary. We’d love to see your illustrations.
After you finish, send ’em our way!
The world is a canvas to your imagination.
