I was hired to create a hero illustration with elements of nature with a calm and relaxing work environment. The client provided me with a huge variety of inspiration images. Based on the images provided, I gathered my own inspirations and created a mood board with comments on what I like about each of the inspiration images to present to the client. After we agreed on the direction, I created the illustration in Adobe Illustrator.
"Perfectly integrated feedback into revision. Understood the requirements very easily. Would absolutely work with Aki again."
Client Feedback: I dig everything but the 'character position' one. The hunched over position feels a little too stressful, formal, like work. I'm hoping the product will be easy, relaxing, and inspiring. I'd be OK with the character on a desk if you want to keep that part (since the calendar is meant to be used during the work day), bu I'd like different body language.
