So I’ve been trying to get on top of my visual identity and the different places I can get my name out there online and fixing things up. I’ve had a Tumblr blog for my art for a while but it was a second blog underneath my regular account and it meant that it got mixed up with my regular account and I wanted to make it separate so I added a new art blog to my inspiration Tumblr account so my inspiration and my own art are linked. I think it perhaps works better and people who visit my art Tumblr will be able to be linked to my inspiration blog.
As I said in my previous post about my visual identity I waned to change my resume and simplify it and after playing around with the layout and what information I would put on it I cam with a new, cleaner and more simple resume that I am happy with and feel quite good about and still I think gets me over in the style of it.
Now all I have to do is sort out my portfolio out and possibly bind my works and add some more sketches and then I think I have my visual identity sorted. I think this will be something that will obviously develop as I grow as an artist/designer but for the moment I am pretty happy with this!
So part of the module Design Competition we are also thinking about our professional practice and within that is our visual identity as an illustration/designer and our personal branding. For myself my visual identity has to get over across that I’m more of a traditional artist and work a lot with markers, ink and watercolour.
