Show me the way to Perdido
Posted in design,illustration,news by Mark on the August 19th, 2007

The rebrand is getting there, will have my business cards printed this coming week, you can see the new style of my stuff now on sreski’s entrance page although it’ll be quite a while before my portfolio gets treated to the new look.

I also found time to enter into one of The Serif‘s redesigner challenges, with a recover of China Mieville’s Perdido Street Station, and also my recover of Paul Cornell’s British Summertime which I posted on scrapbook a while ago.

You can see what folks over on The Serif thought here.

I also did some poster designs using the full map of New Crobuzon (the metropolis in China Mieville’s series of books).

That’s all for now,

    I absolutely love the first one with the layered affect – it reminds me of a virus spreading. What was the original design that you worked from?

    Thanks :) Yeah I liked the spread and creep of it, really suited the feel of the city and all its presence.

    The map is totally created from scratch based loosely on the classic London Underground map, the places and positions are taken from the map within the book itself will post up a link with a shot of that map at some point :)

    Oops bit of a delay over a month later.

    This is a picture of the map from the inside of the book :)
