The Junglebook, Experimenting with type and Image

TITLE

APPLICATION
Book Cover

SOFTWARE TOOLS
Adobe Photoshop

DESCRIPTION
The Jungle book by Rudyard Kipling is an all time favourite read for me. I also have great childhood memories with the Disney feature, based on the book. I wanted to show that for an outsider, the jungle is serene with all its beautiful creatures, but on the inside danger lurks. The book cover is meant to serve as a trailer for the story, encouraging anyone to give it a try.

Its my business

TITLE

APPLICATION
Brand Identity system

SOFTWARE TOOLS
Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator

DESCRIPTION
The design of my personal identity system was harder than I thought. My aim was to create something which I can identify with for a long time to come. The process was almost as painful as to someone deciding their first ever tattoo. My logo was inspired by my name in my native language script, Malayalam, which is full of beautiful round letterforms.. The circle being the most complete, and stable shape in the universe, I believe it points towards the perfection that I want to achieve as an artist and an induidual.

The Mainland Misfits Rollerderby league

TITLE

APPLICATION
Brand Identity system

SOFTWARE TOOLS
Adobe Illustrator

DESCRIPTION
The logo design for a rollerderby league was a challeging and fun at the same time. The challenge was to steer clear from complex emblem style logos with highly detailed illustrations, common in this industry, while delivering something iconic and representative to this sport. The logo shows power, passion, rage, sexiness and energy synonimous with this sport. The type forms, give the feeling of being a misfit, with all the typeforms, colliding and pushing at each other,increasing visual tension, inspired by the sport itself...But all the text elements are streamlined to show speed, agility, and teamwork.

The heart of an issue

T shirt design

SOFTWARE TOOLS

DESCRIPTION
Celebrated as the day of independence by India, August 15, 1947 also marked the partition Indian subcontinent into sovereign nations of Pakistan and India. The partition resulted in a violent standoff between the hindu-muslim communites, resulting in death and destruction all over the place. Houses were burnt, women raped and children orphaned. Disheartened by the violence around him Mahatma Gandhi refused to take part in the celebrations of victory against the British empire. The idea of the project was to use typography principles to express my feelings on this burning issue, that still continues to cause unrest and war in South Asia.
