Shadows of Work

For some time now I've been talking about studio work without actually showing any images.

This isn't because I'm a wicked tease but because of the nature of selling samples. Once I sell them to the client. the sample no longer belongs to me. This is absolutely fine - as a designer, it's one of the things you sign up for, but it does mean that if I take images of work that is later bought by someone else they own it and there is a copyright issue.

This is made even more of a problematic with the Internet and sharing information. It is very hard to put the genie back in the bottle.

However, the point of this blog is to showcase my designs and my processes and so I wanted to find a way of sharing images of work without compromising the copyright. And I think I've managed it.

These show enough of the outline without giving too much away. After all - the devil is in the detail.

I've been really pleased with how quickly this sample came together and how design issues resolved themselves quite simply. If only it always worked that way.

Hopefully I'll be able to post some more images of studio work in the future.



  1. Approving your approach greatly. Look forward to seeing many more shadowy works.

  2. Thank you Chris. I'm glad it meets with your high standards.

    There will certainly be more in the future.
