Blue and Orange

August 25, 2010 Leave a comment

My latest achievement is blue and orange as in “The Earth is blue like an orange”.

These are two complementary colors, which means a very strong and vibrant association. This association is more often used in illustrations for children or to highlight an icon, a button on a website. In short, the result is an illustration that leaves no one indifferent and catches the eye 🙂

The purpose of these registration banners created for Global Volunteer Network is to attract the attention of visitors, the use of these two colors corresponds to our needs. A plane and the clouds for the blue and an idea of travel (volunteering to another country), an orange stripe for contrast:

A slightly different version with less blue and more green for the “Be the Change”. Indeed, this one is a training program for those wishing to grow their own organization, to change the world as depict by the tree:

Since his departure from the Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire), he lives in New Zealand where he regularly performs in concerts such as Wellington (Ruby Lounge, Southern Cross, Jua Kali, Westpac Stadium, Estadio), Napier, Christchurch, Nelson.

A specialist in African music, jazz and blues’ root, he plays mostly djembe, harmonica and guitar for various groups (Afro Beat Band, Rhythm African Band, The Rhythm Man, Heat Beat) which he manages and also organizes many concerts with other guests such as Funky Junk, Oversea’s Experiment, African dancers and many more. Finally, he offers African drumming workshop every Monday evening at 5:30 at the Wellington Performing Arts Center and sometime on Saturday in the Jua Kali African shop.

I am working on the realization of his posters and tickets since the beginning of the year. Here are the latest posters produced:

What is in your mind?

As I was creating the various products, I faced some questions and would like to have your comments:

Do you prefer the design in the back or in the front for the Men’s t-shirts?

Do you prefer colours or black and white design?

Do you prefer a little design on the chest or a bigger one?

Do you prefer cheap tees, nice jackets or organic tees?

See you soon!
