Creating a small book as a personalized wedding gift







Art direction: Dimitris Klonos
Graphic design: Dimitris Klonos
Illustrations: Dimitris Klonos
Copywriter: Ioanna Laitmer
Concept: Ioanna Laitmer

This was a really interesting project. My friend Ioanna came up with a very interesting concept for a wedding gift. The friends and relatives of the couple wrote small stories about the groom and bride. All the stories are connected through a word or phrase that the previous writer passes to the next.

So we collected all those stories and created a small book. The book is the actual present and it is the outcome of the collaborative work of all the friends and relatives.

We enriched the layout with colorful illustrations inspired by the stories.

The illustrations are first roughly hand sketched on paper. After scanning, each illustration is redesigned with the pen tablet in vector form. Photographs were also used as references.

It came out really sweet, I hope you like it!

Creative two color baby on board vinyl sticker






Graphic design: Dimitris Klonos
Illustration: Dimitris Klonos
Print production: Opus Decor

This is a creative way to inform other drivers that you carry a baby on your car.

It is actually a two color vinyl sticker. The base color is fluo yellow and the top vinyl is black.

Especially the fluo gives the sticker great visibility from a long distance.

I hope you like my little bat girl sticker!

Improvised surreal illustration



Illustration: Dimitris Klonos

This is an improvised illustration. It begun as a pencil sketch. Then the sketch was scanned and the basic vector lines were designed over it. I finished the illustration by adding the colors the shadows and the highlights in separate layers.

I usually create these illustrations beginning from a key element and then building the rest around it. In this situation the improvisation begun from the little tower in the low right corner.

It has not a specific meaning. With these kind of illustrations I want to trigger thoughts in the viewer's mind in a dialectic way between the art and the person.

I hope you like it.
