Lettering vignette for King Magazine

    Joakim Kullberg, Art Director at King Magazine, one of the largest magazines for men in Sweden, needed a vignette for a food recipe in their guide pages. This vignette will span over four issues of the magazine. Joakim was unsure of which style that suited the visual form of King. So I started with exploring some different directions. After finding a suitable style of lettering, inspired by my previous project Bukowski quote-poster, I refined it and scanned it into the computer. I then traced it and re-drew it from scratch in Adobe Illustrator. After setting the ground I added textures to get the right feeling. I am really happy with the outcome of this vignette for King Magazine.
