OICsingapore’s new awesome logo by H55

Have you seen this? This is our new identity designed by H55! The 1st person to spot our new look was the super sharp eyed  - Yan Da, Creative Director / Curator at Do Not Design ( http://theartistandhismodel.com ).

logo_oic2014

oic_logo_gif_res03

I can still remember the day – 24th August 2013 when I received a text message and started corresponding with Hanson of H55 about this project. We were still busy with our preparation for our Moongrazing project/ Night Festival 2013 then. When he shared his idea of the new identity with us- we were very excited about it!

“The Organisation of Illustrators Council (or OIC as it is commonly known) logo designed by H55 is both functionally typographic and appropriately illustrative in its expression. The design allows for creative interaction and therefore is open for its participating members to express their individual identities or events through the logo; this being true to the significantly inclusive nature of OIC.”  Hanson Ho / H55 ( http://www.h55studio.com )

Since we started OIC in 2006 – we have a very guerilla-style attitude towards how we operate. Though we seek to promote professional illustration and to make illustrators known in Singapore, we do not want to appear stifling or boring and do it the old school way like a typical illustration society. All our graphic designs were “hacked” together as and when required – there was no “system”. Our well loved “OIC girl” drawn by our very own Twisstii ( http://www.twisstii.com ) in 2009 for our 3rd anniversary was created out of this dna.

oic_girl

What Hanson shared and designed for us was a “system”. A highly flexible and very very fun system that we feel represents OIC and what we have been doing for the past 8 years! Over the next few months – we will be adopting and stretching this “system” as we continue to do what we love doing- championing illustration and the love of drawing in SIngapore!

Thanks Hanson for this contribution and collab!

Kaiyee’s illustrations for a new web platform

This is a new project recently completed by illustrator Kaiyee http://www.kaiyeejelly.com

As independent or freelance illustrators, there are always opportunities to be commissioned or hired to be “plugged in” to new work teams on every new project. This is a very good learning experience and change to working alone or with the same company or same in-house colleagues all the time. Enjoy the company, open your eyes and learn everything! 

Project as shared by Kaiyee:
www.piethis.com is a web sharing platform for office use with coworkers. Recently I’ve had the pleasure of working with the team at Piethis to create colourful and vibrant visuals for the website.

So far, the visuals include character designs, some web interface elements and the landing page image.

I learned more about working within a tech company and as a team. Working together with the team has provided a new and fresh perspective that really helped with the illustrations rather than working alone.

The website officially launched last month, with many companies using it and I am really pleased that my illustrations will have reached a broader audience. I enjoyed making these illustrations and there will be more to come.

You can check it out on

http://www.piethis.com

0 – landing page illustration
1 – character design + sketch
2- initial illustrations + sketches
3 – Guide illustrations + sketches
4 – web app content
5 – blog header

The Rock and the Bird

Here’s a book I illustrated this year that is published by Epigram Books. The art style is quite different from the projects I usually do and it was a great experience to work with designer Caslyn Ong, who had a similar vision for the book as I did. Many thanks to editor Sheri Tan for her support and help.
