A poster for budding archaeologists

The Client: Archaeology Scotland

The Brief

Archaeology Scotland approached me to produce several illustrations and a layout for their new ‘Seekers’ poster. The poster would be provided for young members of Archaeology Scotland, and offers up nuggets of information around a specific topic, in this first instance, food. Particularly, the client wanted an illustrated mascot - Aye Aye Archaeologist.

The Outcome

Working with the client I produced a moodboard and a colour palette, along with a layout and design for the poster which could be carried through into future editions. Aye Aye Archaeologist was created as an inquisitive, yet lifelike mascot, and the poster featured colouring in elements as well as activities for the children. I particularly enjoyed having the opportunity to create a factual, engaging piece of literature with my traditional, detail driven style of illustration and bold graphic elements.
