Website update!

I just added 2 new projects to my website;

'The Outsider' - the illustrations that I created in response to the novel 'The Outsider' by Albert Camus

plus an animation that I made for Waggledancer and WD40 last week.

Take a peek at both: http://www.emmabrownowl.com

The Mustard Tree

Last week I was asked to create a poster and recipe cards for the charity The Mustard Tree. The charity is based in Manchester and helps to support homeless or vulnerable people by providing food, clothing and training. I designed some posters to promote a new cooking class being held at The Mustard Tree which is aiming to provide basic cooking skills for free for anyone who needs them. The brief had to incorporate the charities colours (bright yellow and pink) and needed to include some sort of reference to the Mustard Tree and their logo. The designs are quite simple, there was quite a lot of text to fit in as well as a map so I didn't want to have too much fussy imagery. I stuck to just 3 colours and swapped them around to create 4 different colour designs and 4 recipe cards. Hopefully they'll be eye-catching enough to promote the classes.

Here are my 4 posters and recipe cards:
