The Great Blandini

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Writing for Design / Writing for Design / 2012

Steve Bland is The Great Blandini, Photoshop wizard and creative retoucher extraordinaire. He needed a promotional brochure that would show off his skills and knowledge, appeal to his industry and reflect his sense of fun and humour. ‘The Little Book of Photoshoppe Trickery’ features ten of Blandini’s tricks plus some custom retouches such as ‘sawing the lady in half’. The Victorian inspired type – painstakingly rendered with calligraphy pens and ink (yes, even the body copy!) – is a celebration of hand-crafted typography. It was a real labour of love (and magic).
