Prize of illustration competition for Transport for London by AOI
This is our submission to this year's competition by AOI and TFL, the theme this year was LONDON STORIES.
Across the ages, London has produced and inspired countless stories. Fictitious or real characters and events in this amazing city have always held a fascination, from the anecdotal urban myth to grand tales of historic legend – from the everyday to the curious, and from the past to the present. The aim of the Poster Prize for Illustration competition 2019 is to attract artwork for display that is colourful, inspiring and celebrates the vibrant, multi-layered city that is London.
For this subject we were inspired by the amazing artworks and fashion styles from the 70s. We wanted to celebrate and remind this era. And especially the time at the Carnaby St. before it was all owned by the big commercial stores. Stores like Granny takes a trip were the center of that new vibrant style. Long before street art became famous worldwide, the Carnaby St. of the 70s was already covered in colorful walls and amazing store fronts. We also loved the simplicity of the car and bus design of that time.
