Over New Years I took part in a Manifesto project put on by the Phoenix New Times.
My mission was to interpret one item from their declaration of intentions, and create a poster design around it. You might call a box of matches cliché but as Bobby Brown once said “It’s My Prerogative! I’ll do what I wanna do!”. 😉 If that means throwing a simple metaphor in your face then so be it.
In school I once tried to illustrate matches with an ultra-crappy result, so it’s more of an inside joke for me than anything. I enjoyed keeping the shading and detail minimal but making it POP!
The matchbox grit was hexagon shaped on the samples i found, so hearts were a natural transition.
