Star Wars illustration by Filipe de Carvalho is the Gold Winner in the 2016 Muse Creative Awards. Check out the Star Wars flat design characters!

Star Wars Illustration | 2016 Muse Creative Awards Gold Winner

Company : Filipe de Carvalho

Project Title :  Star Wars Flat Design Characters

Category : Infographic / Icon / Pattern

Country : Portugal

In 2014, “May The Flat Be With You” was published, a flat design personal project depicting 12 classic Star Wars characters. In 2015, I was asked by Vanity Fair to develop some of the new characters from Disney’s next blockbuster “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. The idea was to use some of the classic characters illustrated previously, and mix them with some new ones using the same flat design visual style.

Star Wars Illustration | 2016 Muse Creative Awards Gold Winner

The idea behind these illustrations is to strip down the characters to their most basic details. Such style gives them a minimalistic look. Additionally, long shadows, strong contrasting colours and simple structuring lines helped the project maintain its clean visual style. At the same time, it illustrates the characters in a very recognizable way.

After all before gaining independence in 1947 from the British, India was a land of princely states and kingdoms without a proper national identity. Even after independence, India is culturally diverse in terms of its people, languages and traditions.

POSTAGE STAMPS with its wide usage came as a solution to be used as communication tools across the length and breadth of the nation. Issued by Post & Telegraphic Office nationally, STAMPS through their engraved imagery successfully communicated the Planning Commission’s initiatives with respect to food and agricultural policies.

Human Rights Video | Sophia Kyriacou Wins 2016 Muse Creative Awards

Noon Visual Creatives commissions Sophia Kyriacou to design a television programme brand on the various aspects of human rights, simply called, Human Rights. To express the various aspects of human rights Sophia Kyriacou turns the concept of the Zoetrope. The Greek word, Zoe, means life and tropos. Literally translating to the “wheel of life”, the video portrays this scenario with a Ying and Yang approach.

Human Rights Video | Sophia Kyriacou Wins 2016 Muse Creative Awards

Zoetrope establishes with water; without it, there simply is no life. As the viewer is taken above the tiers, the imprisoned dove flying free contrasts the negative scenario of the prisoner. Above a Syrian child wearing a life jacket suggests to have travelled across the Mediterranean Sea to find hope. In contrast of this scene, there is a young girl oblivious, happily playing with a spinning top.

Human Rights Video | Sophia Kyriacou Wins 2016 Muse Creative Awards

An essential part of the brief was the opening title sequence had to withstand repeated viewing, packed with stories. Besides, it have to be able to deliver both English and Arabic end frame typographical versions with identical visuals.

Nike Campaign | Air Max 2017 "Go Lighter, Go Longer"

Go Lighter, Go Longer.

The concept behind go lighter, go longer is in fact a metaphorical exploration of air and the negative space it occupies.

A series of visual metaphors portrays the Air Max 2017’s ultralight support and maximum comfort. The scenarios are in fact inspirations from everyday run encounters.
