Blue Bird Tea: Illustration style and layout design
I created a set of marketing material for Blue Bird Tea (now called Bird Blend). Blue Bird is a specialist tea company that offers a range of blends of tea. Blacks, Redbush, green and so many other flavours. Overall the support of the marketing team helped me craft layouts within a tight timeframe.. They issued me digital social media layout work that focuses on improving the marketing presence.
With the short amount of time, what was working with the company was like?
It was exciting. There is one thing I can use define this experience, narrowing down my speciality. After a hard discussion what work was needed for their marketing, it was agreed to create new and compelling promotion social media work. I have a background in using Adobe InDesign, but I was concerned about not being skilled in layout design.
Something interesting happened during the wire framing stage. Wire-framing the marketing whole sale guide and social media promotion art layout allowed me to realised branding was the area I should focus on. Ever since, I have narrowed down my work areas and be great at creating art for brands.
How did this work opportunity both helped your professional trade and personally?
In conclusion I would say 3 things
Help prepare for the young innovators programme
Approach clients that have marketing or branding issues
Think of a business idea that a clients needs rather than want.
