November 2019’s Projects

I’ve been working on a lot of projects for one special client, in particular, this November. I wanted to take the time to post a short retrospective on the work that I’ve created for the CPC since last year as their projects have been a lot of fun, the people are lovely to work with and the brief’s fulfill my creative impulse for that perfect design and illustration balance.

Our first collaboration was for the Playground Partners! It's an event to raise funds to keep-up and maintain Central Park's 21 playgrounds. The brief described all sorts of playful elements you could see in the parks; squirrels, trees, birds, flowers, wisteria, fountains, ducks, etc. etc.
