A Better Place work

Hello people, I’ve got something special for you this fine Monday afternoon!

A while back I did some illustrations for a beautiful website in the making, called A Better Place. Well today, that website has launched!┬áThe website, founded by Sophie Caldecott (who you can also find blogging here) is an online platform for ethical consumerism, and it’s totally beautiful. The idea of the website is to make ethical living more attractive, more accessible, and to throw off the commonly held view that it’s too expensive, or too difficult, a lifestyle to live by. On the website you can find everything from product reviews of ethical technology, fashion, and cleaning products, to informative articles on ethical living. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Sophie and the team, and I know that they’re going to go on to do great things!

I did two illustrations for this launch, which I gave a peek at in this post I did back in June. The first illustration is an accompany to Sophie’s first editor’s letter, and illustrates the difficulties in making this project a reality. I really loved doing this piece…the textures and colours of shells can be amazing.

The second illustration I did was for an article on light pollution. I did two drawings for this, which I layered up to created the final piece. It’s so different from the other piece, but again, a joy to do!

I’m so pleased to have been a part of the launching of A Better Place, and can’t wait to see what happens next. Give their website a visit, and try not to splurge on all the amazing products they have to offer!
