EYP Vintage

Another quick design mock-up done after work in the vein of something old, distressed and vintage. I used 2 photographs of vintage stock for the main image with some filigree designs and text. Overall it took about 40 minutes to make.

Again, the main point in doing these is to develop speed and to learn to be able to put concepts and ideas down quickly. Sometimes it works out and other times it doesn't. I already do this when I have ideas for an illustration or piece of artwork. The good thing is once it put down into a visual form, you can refer back to it later...sometimes months later.

I find that this process also allows me to explore a more versatile spectrum of styles and treatments that otherwise would never be attempted.

This is a design that went through my mind today as I worked. No reason and no purpose other than to get into the habit of recording visual thoughts down quickly as it passes through the cerebral flux of random ideas. Perhaps in the future, it might serve a more practical purpose by being used as a style for a client or in-house project. Maybe a shirt design? Yes, perhaps a shirt would be cool.

Regardless, hope you enjoy it.
