Joyful Junctions

Recommended Posts

What Are Joyful Junctions?
I'm working on developing a collection of illustrative, colourful artworks, based on visually memorable junctions in and around Scotland. I started with Glasgow, my home town, but have now expanded out to other interesting areas with varying complexity. I'll post some examples of my favourites here, but if you like, you can see the whole collection on my Behance Gallery.

Kinning Park, Glasgow

St. James' Interchange, Glasgow

Clyde Tunnel North Exit, Glasgow

Swin Burn, LivingstonM90/A823(M), Rosyth


Improvements I'd Like to Make / Affinity Designer Questions
It's my first time using a real graphic design software suite beyond Powerpoint, but it's a testament to the developers that Affinity is so easy to get used to.
That being said, I was wondering if there's a way to have a curve follow the same curvature as another. For example, when I have one road running parallel to another for some section, and want to maintain a uniform distance between the curves for the duration of that section. If this tool exists in the program, please do let me know!

Cool idea and execution.


I don't think such an "offset" tool exists yet but in the meantime one way is to create a stroke extra wide then duplicate that stroke directly on top of the first stroke and use it to create a thinner stroke in the lighter colour above the extra thick stroke in exactly the same shape or curvature. The light thin stroke then becomes the uniform distance between what now appears to be two adjacent strokes, I hope that makes sense...

Thanks Kasper, I've actually had that suggested a couple of times already so it's certainly on the list :)

Currently converting my works into CMYK format though to put together a Scotland calendar, but will then be going back to making new ones!
