Maria’s Musings …
Monthly thoughts, inspirations and musings from our Creative Lead, Maria Mendoza.
This month I wanted to explore some current trends in the graphic design world: watercolour textures. The subject of my musing this month is Japanese singer Utada Hikaru. I was a nerd growing up and she sang on the soundtrack to one of my favourite video games – Kingdom Hearts. She’s also adorable, so I created this piece from a photo, using this textured technique. I love the way it brings movement into the digital paint splatter I created. I am really hoping to use this technique again on a client project that fits this style.
