The JEB Blog gives the back story on our creative projects of illustration and graphic design.
"Hey Joe, Just wanted you to know I've already received tons of positive feedback about the March cover. Everybody has the same response: 'It made me hungry!' I know that thing was a beast, but we nailed it in the end and I think this is going to be a popular issue for us. So thanks again for the great work."— Jeremy
This is the perfect response for the cover we worked on together. As Jeremy eluded, this cover went through several creative rounds but that is part of the process which I truly enjoy as an illustrator. In this blog, I have placed some of the concepts we considered before reaching the final cover.
The Creative Process for the March 2014 Funworld cover:
The first annual AFF 2013 was a great success! Joe Barsin of JEB Design was honored to be asked again to create the poster for the 2014 Festival. We show below the creative process that went into the illustration. Joe developed the visual concept from the events tagline, "Talk Movie To Me!"
I wanted to show the range of themes and emotions that movies bring to the audience. From laughter and suspense to science fiction and horror. Also, wanted to represent the Naval Academy with a midshipmen. The concept is import but I also needed to create an illustration that could work horizontal and vertically since my work is used from social media to the printed program and street banners. I hope you enjoy the work. -Joe
Below are the initial sketches that were presented to the AFF team. Its a great process that goes into the creative back and forth to reach the final illustration.
