Creative Council

I was part of a collaboration with other illustrators from University. I produced a final image to to be entered into a catalogue designed by Uniform, Uniform are a design team in the Northwest and they used Liverpool and the Creative Council to create a piece of print work which reflects the businesses and communities in the area. I responded to the category ‘quality and design excellence’, looking at the “Three Graces” on the Liverpool Docks; The Royal Liver Building, The Cunard Building, and the Port of Liverpool Building. The buildings stand as a testament to the great wealth in the city during the late 19th and 20th century. All built in a variety of architectural styles they are recognised as being a symbol of maritime Liverpool.
I concentrated mostly on the Port of Liverpool, taking my own collection of photographs of the building and its inner interior, an Edwardian Baroque style building built in 1903-1907. It is known for its ornamental design and details both on the inside and outside, in particular the maritime references and decorative details and furnishings.
