What happens during a personalized service?
To answer this question, which you ask yourself before entrusting me with your project, I decided to write an article to show you the different stages of my work. I used as an example the design of note cards that I drew for Aude creator of Babisère , a company based in Grenoble and which promotes creators based in Isère.
When you order a visual, the first step is to discuss with you to know your needs and your desires: If you are professionals, I will ask you more questions about the sector of activity, your customers as well as the end use that will be made of the illustration.
Then I ask the client to send me their logo so that I can get as close as possible to their branding (in terms of colors and brand message). I visit their site and find out about their values.
The design and drawing of the Babisère logo was made by Kangooroad (you can click HERE to visit their site)
After soaking up this different information , I sketch the ideas that come to me in pencil. For Babisère, I immediately associated the brand's values with the idea of a balloon that transports us with them. So I used the B as a support for my character (a girl at the beginning).
I really liked the idea of the bond of tenderness between Babisère's B and the little girl, so I tested different versions.
I then came back to the little girl because that seemed to me to only speak to some of Babisère's customers and so I looked for a little animal to associate with the Balloon.
Little by little the character of the little rabbit took over and I refined his design to offer two versions of cards: One with the rabbit flying away holding the B (as if it were a balloon) and the another by leaning on the circle of the logo to express the tenderness of the brand dedicated to childhood and to the development of local creators.
Here a first version with the use of watercolor and Indian ink pen:
Not being satisfied with this version, which I found too hard, I decided to make the drawings only in watercolor, which gave the final result much softer and which was validated by Aude.
You will find these cards in your package when you order from Babisère.
