For the month of August (and one day in September!), a series of guest posters will be filling in on DWL with daily posts. Today’s posts come to you from designer Riley Cran. For more from Riley, be sure to check out his blog and follow him on Twitter. Enjoy!
One of the best things about belonging to a family of designers and illustrators, is seeing all the work your relatives are churning out.
My Cousin, and fellow designer, Cade Cran recently sent me a pair of these amazing ‘X-Ray Vision’ glasses he cooked up, and I just noticed he has added them to his portfolio.
I was impressed with the attention to detail in the whole project, from the tiny icons lining the edge of the box, to the custom designed die-cut glasses themselves. All of the purpose-made illustration work also caught my eye. The aesthetic strikes me as a clever Lichtenstein-like update to the styles of old comic book artwork, with an emphasis placed on the oversized half tones and offset colors.
I recently saw the shots for these on dribbble. It’s good to see the final product, very nice work!
