More Work for the U of M

These are a couple pieces I did for the Tigers last week. The top one is an invite to their upcoming Junior Day, and the bottom one is a flyer they sent/will send out to those recruits that sign with them. I had a lot of fun creating both, especially the bottom piece. I tried a couple new techniques and effects on that piece just to see what would happen with them. I'm not calling it totally perfect, but I definitely like the result.

BBQ Bash Flyer: Before & After

The top 2 images are before...

 ...and here it is after I got my hands on it.

It has been a little while since I have posted some work so here is a flyer I recently did for a BBQ contest. The top 2 images show their flyer from last year. It took several read-throughs to dissect it into my solution below. I tried to break up the "muddleness" (yeah, I made up a word) by creating a little more space for the contests and awards. I also wanted to clean up the backside and clearly show the title of the event and all the information that was need. I don't know what drew me to the S-curve design for the front, but in one of my sketches I just saw the page expanding out from a center circle. I never really wanted the center circle to be a grill, as I thought that would be too literal, but I thought the circular shape lent itself to an interesting design.
