Timeline. 2 weeks Type of work. Student Client. Frankie Magazine
Challenge. We were given a brief to illustrate and lay out a spread of an article of our choice, which would be a feature article in any New Zealand or Australian magazine. The illustration must mirror the contents of the article, and the style will have to be influenced heavily by the magazine.
Solution. I chose Frankie magazine to feature the article in, which was an article from the magazine World Sweet World. After analyzing the style of Frankie magazine, and reading and deciphering the article (which was about op-shopping and finding vintage treasures second-hand), I chose the artist Lovely Sweet William to emulate to create the editorial illustration. I chose subtle, washed-out colors to represent vintage, and chose pencil and water-color pencils as a medium to give the illustration a soft, unique feel. I created two full spreads, so the editorial was complete. World Sweet World featured the finished article on their website.
