A poster design made for a non-profit canned food drive
Client Mana Food Pantries
Skills Required Illustrator, Photography, Lightroom, Photoshop
The idea of string art came to me one day when I was scrolling through Pintrest (naturally) and saw a very interesting graphic made out of string. I was impressed, and since I was impressed, there was only one thing to do. I had to challenge this person whom I have never met and come up with something just as awesome. I pitched my idea to Emagination Unlimited and was told that if I wanted to do this on my free time, I would be permitted to use the graphic to design posters. We came to an agreement that it should be done for Manna Food Pantries, a non-profit food drive that Emagination had taken on as a project for a good cause.
The piece was accomplished by first designing the layout in Illustrator. Afterwards, I printed out the line work on a large format printer and pasted it onto foam board. From there, I bought out all of Joann Fabric’s pins and began placing the pins along the lines. This process took A LOT longer than I expected. After 20 hours of pinning, I was ready to place the string. I first started with the bottom layers of basic colors and then added layers of shadowing and dimension. After 50 hours of work in all, my piece was complete.
