KN Work // Skingraft Redesign and Live Improve Movie Project Poster

Since I’m starting to do more freelance work I thought I’d start posting more of the projects I’ve been working on over the last few weeks. The first was a logo redesign for my friends fashion label, Skingraft, a brand that makes contemporary feeling clothes that are Victorian-era inspired, and they also create a lot of leather pieces as well.

The name alone connotates some not so cute imagery, so I went with a really simple but unique font that would contrast well with their harder edged look. They were also looking for some sort of crest or mark as well, so we took inspiration from all of the mounts on the walls of their studio and created a stylized ‘S’ inside of a mount. It’s a bit gothic, a bit old fashioned, and definitely bold.

The poster above was created for the Live Improv Movie Project, a project my friend Ari is a part of. Basically, the old poster was desperate for an update, so I decided to go with an old fashioned, sort of 70’s French cinema feel, or at least that was my inspiration. I figured simple and bold was the best way to go, I figured I’d stop and look to see what this poster was about.

I’ll try to post updates more frequently if you guys are interested.

    This is really good stuff. I’ve been following this blog for a few months now, and this is the first post I remember seeing your own work in. I like it a lot.

    If there are previous posts of your personal work that I forgot about I apologize.

    Love that logo design!

    Good work! I’d be very interested in seeing more of your personal work. Perhaps even sketches and ideas that didn’t make it? I love watching how something took shape, especially if it’s graphic design.

    Keep up the good work Bobby!
