Cork Photo 2016

Cork Photo 2016

Before departing on our travels around New Zealand. PrettyHandsome Studio had the great honour of continuing our relationship with the lovely people over at Cork Photo 2016.

Last year

Having created original designed & screen printed T-shirts, to be provided to the volunteers last year. PrettyHandsome Studio where asked back again this year to try and outdo ourselves.

Cork Photo 2015 souvenir T-shirt

New year new design

Creating a brand new original design to be used not only on T-shirts but across a range of a promotional merchandise as rewards for the Cork Photo Fund:it campaign.

Having focused the design for 2015 on the camera/photography aspect of the festival, the task for 2016 was to incorporate the Cork into the design, without making it the focal point of the design.

Cork  Photo 2016 rough

Working through some different ideas and even creating some finished roughs, we finally settled on a design that everyone was delighted with.

Incorporating the colours of the logo as well as the city of cork whilst not relying on the city to be the focal point of the design.

With all agreed we then proceeded to start with the printing creating an array of merchandise for use with the Cork Photo Fund:it campaign.
