Octopus Week 2011 by chibighibli Octopus Week 2011 by chibighibli
A very fun project, through my internship at Modern Dog Design Co. Working for the Aquarium is a dream come true :) The lettering was very fun to do, too-- I used sumi ink for the first time!

Oh my god. I want this one too. It's so cheerful and FUN! Great work with the text, I love how the curved lines echo the swash of an octopus' tentacles.

I bought this on a shirt about a week ago, when I took my father to the aquarium while he was in Seattle on vacation! Love the design- hence why I'd like to be seen in it. XD It's actually really cool knowing the source of the art I'm wearing...

LOVE IT! Especially all the "inky" aesthetics, between the ink clouds and the title fonts-- it gives the feel and texture while maintaining that crisp vector look. Lovely!

The "February" is Levi brush, but the headline is my very own custom-painted lettering. :) Nice indentifont.

How did you do the textures? Is that the sumi ink? It looks like it is all digital.

Love the texture of the ink. Adore how the title card is done in Sumi brush-like strokes. The Octopus is adorable, his tentacles are lively without overwhelming the composition of the poster or himself. Very fun how the bottom text is wavy like water :)

This is a wonderful wonderful piece if I saw it (and lived in Seattle) I'd totally go! Plus it's just pretty, I'd probably steal the posters.

The octopi were awesome, and you're lucky to work at an aquarium. I bet that's an awesome job.

I don't work AT the aquarium, I work for a design company that contracts with the aquarium :) But contracting with the aquarium is indeed an awesome job!
