Karol Banach
Embroidery Illustration for Brasil Warsaw

Design Product & Packaging

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
There was no specific topic from the client (Brasil Warsaw), just to make a piece that will make people smile. As there are many problems in Brazil such as poverty and crime, I wanted to share my positive fantasies about the society there - fun, sunshine, drinks, music and sports.

How was the illustration used:
The embroidered illustrations were used as gifts for various clients.

How did you make this work:
I could use whatever colours I like, and whatever shapes and characters. I designed the illustrations as vectors, which were then sent to a specialised print shop where they were made as embroidery.
