Headless Greg : Dundee Design Festival

Advertising

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
I was hired as the Character Designer for Dundee Design Festival 2021. Working with the festival's organisers, Agency Of None, I illustrated a collection of characters which were used to create a playful and engaging aesthetic for the festival.

How was the illustration used:
My character illustrations appeared across posters, leaflets and the festival website. They were also brought to life in a variety of different physical forms during the festival itself.

How did you make this work:
I created a system of hundreds of different geometric shapes in Adobe illustrator. This system was then used by myself - and lots of other creatives - to create countless different characters.
