Beautiful "Paper-cut-out" style art / illustrations needed for new website.
We are looking for a talented graphic designer / illustrator to emulate the style of artist, Eiko Ojala (examples attached) more examples of his art can be found here: http://ploom.tv
We want to create a detailed vertical landscape containing 4 scenes that will depict New York City throughout the four seasons using the 4 images of NYC provided in visual reference uploads .
If all 4 seasons are too labor intensive for one project, we would consider focusing on just the first 2 or 3 seasons for this project, and then re- hiring for the remainder of the seasons.
A detailed vertical story board with 4 sections starting with Summer, then leading to fall, winter, then spring.
Each scene will contain some minimal paper-cut out style background with hand drawn details throughout. Use of bright and eye catching colors that relate to each season.
Summer - bright blue skies, green grass, green trees, fluffy clouds, and a nyc backdrop with some architecture and buildings etc
Autumn - Amber, red, orange, yellow - leaves in the trees etc, could be a scene in central park, or could contain some iconic nyc brownstones
Winter - lots of white snow, possibly a scene from central park, some evergreen trees, new yorkers, park-goers, people walking their dogs, families iceskating, wearing brightly colored winter attire.
Spring - flowers blooming in the trees, brightly crisp colors blue skies etc
Careful use of shadows, lighting and various layers will create the scene and together with the hand drawn elements each scene will be beautiful and tell a story - each depicting a scene from NYC.
These designs will be sprinkled throughout the page and combined with content (see first example)
Summer will be full width, the rest of the seasons will be art heavy on the left or right side of screen with some content as it's counterpart on the other side of the screen.
Please see rough outline and examples provided. Please look closely at the art style we are trying to emulate and the details within each scene that make it come to life. Please also use the 4 iconic scenes of NYC in the 4 seasons as inspiration for your scenes.
We look forward to working with you
Please feel free to shoot us any questions and to discuss the project in more details
