Design Challenge and Design Ideas

To illustrate the over eighty lighthouses that dot our shorelines as a series of prints. I wanted to create a series that had a feel of the classic interwar poster form, but with a fresh modern approach to the illustration. This was achieved by using a consistent typographic format employing Futura as the font The illustrations are created using my fingerprint as a textural device.

How the brief was fulfilled

The initial ketches were prepared (on site where appropriate) and these were then worked up into digital illustrations using a variety of textural applications including my fingerprint and a range of scanned objects. The aim was to have a consistent look to the final prints, so Futura was used as the typefont throughout.
