This week has been less busy, as TBH has been put on hold, but I’ve been asked to work with Bethany on a banner for the Comparative Literature Program with Dr. Elizabeth Richmond-Garza. We are both coming up with ideas. The aesthetic we’ve been told to pursue is art nouveau and we’ve additionally been told to focus on jewel tones for the color palette.
Below is the first Illustrator draft of a banner idea:
I’m still working on modifying the text and line art. I’m not sure how to incorporate the referred characters in the design, but for this design at least, I’m leaning towards doing away with the pages and maybe making a sort of curlicue design with the characters in a darker yellow or the same hue but at 50ish% opacity. Colors are not finalized.
