Kvinnliga Hantverkarstipendiet and the graphic story behind it!
As you all know the scholarship for female craftsman were distributed last week. And the great blogger and artisan Sara May Kahl was the winner. (Great choice by the way!)
I was asked to create the diploma. (Yes, I have a very nice job!)
And here is the story behind creating it, I was inspired by the great poster by Antony Burrill. You know that one with the typo: Work hard and be nice to people, that is a good quote and also so true. And something else that´s also true is that Sara May Kahl works really hard and she is really good at it. So thats how the quote came to.
After that, I started to sketch, always by hand. Then I use my iPhone to get the typo inside my computer!
Then fix some small details. Done!
In the beginning the diploma had no background pattern, but Sara is a very inspiring person, so I took some inspiration from here house.
And created a pattern for the diploma.
And that´s the whole story, the end!
