Euston hoardings

Recommended Posts

I was recently commissioned to create a set of illustrations to go on construction hoardings around the Euston Station (London) area. I picked Affinity Designer as my weapon of choice, and the results can be seen if you take a wander around the district.

The one small production bummer was that the agency doing the artwork insisted on AI files so I have to convert them all before sending them out. Even despite that I would still have used Affinity for these as it's just a much nicer illustration tool than Adobe. I think these would have taken me twice as long in Illustrator, and given me a migraine along the way.

What a brilliant advertisement for AD! Thanks for sharing. They are superb, and I particularly like that 1930s/40s vibe - reminds me of a poster I once created for a production of Anything Goes. :)

Magnificent work, Dan! I particularly like the little details such as the face and ears on the girl’s backpack.

@Ali glad that comes across - it's exactly the vibe I was going for. Had to do quite a bit of research around travel posters of the era.

@giantlobsterprd The biggest giveaway is the sunburst. I think the theatre image is the closest to the vibe and the most successful. :)
