Giveaway - Free November Wallpaper!

I know you're all celebrating Halloween today, but tomorrow is the the first of November and I couldn't wait to share with you the new wallpapers I've created! It's getting a lot colder out there, so I wanted to illustrate some wintery flowers in a soft, delicate way, using fresh colours that to me represent November. Hope you like them!

You can download the first version here and the second minimal one here. Don't forget the mobile version right here!

Have a great weekend :)

Wandering - Rhuddlan Castle

A couple of weeks ago, we went to visit the Rhuddlan Castle as we needed some fresh air, and really, it's been a while since we visited a historical site! And as you may have realised by now, old historical stuff is my kind of thing! We were surprised by the amazing view from the top of the castle, and I have to say that the moody sky helped to add a dramatic touch to the photos.

Stay tuned for the release of the next wallpaper! Until then, have a spooky, full-of-sugary-treats Halloween!

Portfolio Update #10 - Time is precious

Hey everyone! I've been working on little illustrations just for me and because I'm quite pleased with this one, I thought I would share it with you! I'm always trying to create an illustration that means something to me, and lately, I've been thinking about how time goes so fast and I always want to make the most of it. Take care :)

Pinterest Addiction #7

Happy Saturday! Here is my latest Pinterest picks to give you a bit of inspiration this weekend :)

1. How cool is this fashion illustration?!
2. I love how simple and effective is this packaging
3. Lately I've been looking at various treatments of typography and I really like the texture and colours on this one
4. Well, It's truly Autumn now so I'm drawn to this kind of orangey colours
5. And because it's dark and cold in the evening, I need this special hot chocolate...
6. ... And I also really need this beautiful scarf!
7. Yep, bonus one, a bit of stationery can't hurt anyone right?

Enjoy your weekend!

Portfolio Update #9 - Cartrefi Conwy Annual Report

Happy Saturday! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend.

Recently at View Creative, I've been working on this project for Cartrefi Conwy and although when given the brief I thought it would be a bit of a daunting project, I quickly realised that the client was after something a lot more creative than the kind of design we usually see for annual reports. In the end I found it quite fun to create these simple vectorised illustrations and making the content more interesting by playing with the statistics and other infographics.

Check out my website for more photos!

Wandering - Betws-Y-Coed Waterfall

Happy weekend! Hope you're having a good one so far. Last month, on a grey rainy day, we thought it could be nice to visit Betws-y-Coed and explore the famous Swallow Falls which we hadn't seen yet, even though we've been to this cute town quite a few times.

Although you need to pay for it (I know, paying to see a waterfall?!), we weren't disappointed as the scenery was great and it was obviously a fantastic subject to take photos of.
