Creative Mondays 190 – Movie Cards

“What is Creative Mondays?

Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.

So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”

Films are a huge passion of mine. Love watching them, discussing them and should really think about making one myself. Whenever I see any design work related to the film industry I immediately take notice and whilst browsing Dribbble I found a great post by Paul Nechita. He started a ‘Daily UI Elements’ project and on day 49 he created an example of a Movie Card that I thought I’d like to try my hand at.

I picked a few films that were on my radar and decided to try three slight variations of the same design. I find this type of work useful as a digital sketchbook so that I can look back over potential good or bad ideas and use elements in future projects.

2015 – It’s Here!

Wow! Is it just me or are these years flying by? Didn’t I just do a 2014 post? Maybe I’m just repeating myself again but I’d like to thank those for tuning in to see my site this year. If I can contribute one little bit to inspiring someone to pick up a pencil or grab that camera then I feel it’s all worth it.

2015 has a nice look to it and I’m hoping get more out of this site with both my self-initiated projects (Creative Mondays included) and more of my day-to-day design work. It’s all about expanding that brand and making it a force to reckon with!

Here’s to 2014 and let’s make 2015 something to rival!

CreativeJUUS Store is Online!

Store Open Image

Yes that’s right! I finally got my ass into gear and set up a little CreativeJUUS store to sell some of those prints that I’ve been “saying” I’d sell all along.

So prints are the next thing to get into full production and starting off with the initial stock I’ve included two posters from my collection. My Star Had to Die poster and Halo 4 poster are ready to go now and I’m putting a sale on both of those items immediately!

Both posters are A3 size and the pricing will be £10 (plus shipping) until I add more stock.

I’ll be announcing more posters for sale soon so make sure to follow my Twitter and Facebook accounts to catch the information when it drops!

Earlier this year I entered an online competition to create an image using a selection of stock photography chosen by the Ten Collection. Competition’s like these are quite common online and there’s a great chance to meet other designers/creatives in the same field and gain some inspiration. Also it gives you an opportunity to complete something to a brief which can be difficult if you’re used to creating alot of sel.

The theme this time around was Health 2.0 and I wanted to use the imagery of a mouse as a link to the medical insight we gain about ourselves and our bodies.

The competition closed on May 31st and the winners will be announced on the 9th of June. If you fancy giving my image thumbs up you can do so here.

Wait, but it’s not Monday? You’ve cheated I hear you say? Well yes I suppose I have and for just this once I’m going to let it slide. Here we are on Tuesday the 1st of January 2013 and the start of a new year. I’d just like to wish all my family, friends and anyone who’s checked out my site over the last year a very happy new year and all the best for 2013. Here’s to another year of creativity and inspiration. Let’s make it a good one!
