The goal of this project was to personify ourself as a design-related superhero. I have a passion for both typography and web coding so I used them as the main concepts for my superhero and story. In addition to doing the design work, I also wrote the story itself.
The first part of this project was to get the story written out. Once I had the story written out I could start thinking about the visual aesthetics of the project. I almost always start my projects by creating a moodboard. Moodboards help me get inspired and generate ideas. These help me determine and visually showcase the direction that I want to go with the project. While there is some layout you can see that most of my moodboard consists of various illustration styles.
Designing a visual layout or any project always starts with sketching. Here you can see my initial sketches for each spread of the booklet.
A decent amount of this project consisted of me finding a style of illustration that worked with me and my skill set. Prior to this project I had not done many illustrations as such, I found this simplified vector style of illustration to work well and be a starting point for my illustration journey.
