Brian Miller has created two poster designs for Raleigh USA, he was asked to create a series of posters for a new generation while capturing the timeless qualities that make Raleigh and their riders unique. Raleigh has been working with illustrators since 1916 and Brian says that he is thrilled to contribute!
Raleigh Heritage Poster
With the sketch in place and approval from Raleigh, I moved on to laying out the basic values of the piece. When I was working on this part, I was really trying to focus on creating romantic lighting which would enhance that feeling of serenity and exploration. Typically if the mood comes through in black and white, it’ll sing in color once I’ve put in lots of work.
2014 Raleigh Holiday Poster
The biggest challenge with the sketches was nailing the right balance between the clutter of the bike shop with the clarity needed to show the kids and the bikes. With the sketch in place, I moved onto laying out values in black and white to resolve these challenges before moving to color.
