Greeting Cards Development

For several months, I have been working on a brand new direction for my online store. As well as selling art prints, I'll now sell products that will expand into two more categories; Stationery and Textiles. The first new products I'll release this month will be a set of greeting cards featuring abstract, typographic art that I have drawn and coloured by hand.

These cards can be bought individually or in packs depending on their colour or classification. Customers can choose the brightly coloured Multi(colour) set or the strong graphic Mono(chrome) set. Accompanying the cards will be other items from the Stationery category, including Gift Wrap and Gift Tags, fulfilling many gift-giving needs.

Coming in 2017 will be a limited run of products for the Textiles category such as head wraps and scarves as well as new digital prints and original illustrations for the Artworks category. Stay tuned for all of these wonderful goodies!

Typographic Illustrations From the Archives

DON'T BE LAZY – 2007

For 2016, a renewed priority of mine is to create more typographic illustrations. I recently went through the arduous process of transferring all of my work and personal files from an old computer to a new one. Inevitably, I stumbled upon lots of old work that I almost forgot about. Amongst these archived files were many typographic illustrations; ranging from personal pieces to student pieces to client pieces. Even though several of them were unrealised or unrefined, they all reminded me of how much I love creating a varied array of abstract illustrations that were focused around words, sentences and messages. Here I wanted to share a small selection of the pieces that I came across so you can have a little taste of where I began and how I have developed as an illustrator. Seeing these old drawings has definitely reignited my aim to realise the ideas I currently have for my future typographic works.

9 Questions Answered for Paperblanks

nikki-farquharson-paperblanks

After sharing my 2016 Paperblanks diary (above) on Instagram, Paperblanks contacted me to find out if I was interested in being interviewed for their blog, Endpaper. I've loved Paperblanks products for many years, so it was an honour to be recognised by them via my little social media post. The questions they sent were great and very specific to my work, so it was lovely to get the opportunity to talk about it in detail. My answers for them include discussing my plans for 2016, how graphic design has influenced my art and what has inspired my most personal project so far. Check out the interview in full on the Paperblanks blog.
