A poster for budding archaeologists
The Client: Archaeology Scotland
Archaeology Scotland approached me to produce several illustrations and a layout for their new ‘Seekers’ posters. The posters are provided for young members of Archaeology Scotland, and offer up nuggets of information around a specific topic. So far, we have produced posters featuring food through time and communication. Particularly, the client wanted an illustrated mascot - Aye Aye Archaeologist.
Working with the client I produced a moodboard and a colour palette, along with a layout and design for the poster which is being 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. And I loved learning about the Carnyx.
