We've really enjoyed working with Roberth. First of all, his design stood out in the contest because Roberth actually read the email copy and leveraged appropriate visuals to enhance our message. Roberth is a designer who thinks holistically and strategically. Second, working with him getting all the revisions done was a breeze, we had multiple rounds of changes, and Roberth was always super fast sending us a new version. We would definitely work with Roberth again.
How AimeeFJ started their illustration or graphics journey
Who are you known as?
none - personal project.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
art/illustration for a gift.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Infographic/Map based on Map of the UK. I have all the relevant data - I am looking for someone to design the map/infographic based on the shipping forecast. For example, some of the data is here: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/…g-forecast
I'll need it printed to A1/A0 size.
The shipping forecast is played on BBC Radio 4 several times a day - before it is broadcast a piece of music plays. The map will be framed with a music box hidden behind it that plays the music when a button is pressed. It might be worth listening to the forecast to get an idea of what it sounds like...listen here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b078w8c8
Map Title: The Offshore Shipping Areas including the Inshore Waters of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
I don't want it to be too whimsical - it's a technical drawing. I would like a compass, the timings/names data, the coastal stations, and insphore waters to be included. If you flick through the wikipedia article you can see that there's a lot of data that may be included.
