Diamond Jubilee 2012
This image was created for a promotional campaign for my agents Meiklejohn who asked their Illustrators to create a commemorative image for the Queens Diamond Jubilee celebrations. I decided to start with the basic concept of the Queen of Diamonds playing card, create a typographic focus with a flowing red, white and blue ribbon text.
For someone who is definitely not a royalist, I had to resist certain urges.....
This work was recently featured in French Photoshop Magazine's Typography special, as you can see from the images I have added.
