So I’ve been working on some birthday card designs for a few weeks now, and I have finally settled on a really simple and subtle design, based on some 3D isometric drawings I have been working on.
I designed a logo for myself several years ago that is very similar and I have grown to absolutely LOVE drawing on isometric paper ever since. I get so absorbed and in the zone while I pencil in the type, and join it all together with ink and scan it in. It’s then a case of reproducing it on illustrator (somewhat painstaking) but I’m really pleased with the results.
I wanted to produce a really simple design and I think it is certainly a step in the right direction for my style of illustration.
