Inspiration #5 : The Art of James White
They say the layer styles in Photoshop, especially the Color Dodge, Overlay and Softlight can change a designers life. Well, Now you are about to witness some of the most brilliant poster designs that bring the basic colors to dazzling reality. I was searching for creative posters on Behance when i stumbled upon James’ works. I browsed through his gallery and was literally blown away on seeing some of his projects. So, i decided to collect a few of his works and put them here as a source of inspiration.
He has also designed a wallpaper for us which was published sometime back in Smashing Magazine.
A little info about James White:
James White has been drawing since the age of 4, scribbling down his favorite characters such as Superman, Batman, the Dukes of Hazzard, etc. Being from a military family, he made 3 big moves through childhood but never strayed from his colored-pencils.
After going through school constantly being yelled at for drawing in class (by teachers, not parents) he applied and was accepted in 1995 to the Graphic Design course at a community college in Truro, Nova Scotia. Graduating with honors he proceeded schooling by taking Interactive Technology.
Upon graduation in 1998 he landed a job immediately in the website/graphic design field, all the while keeping up on his traditional drawing, painting and digital creation.
James allowed both sides of corporate design and personal art to feed each other, and on his own time he has created logos, flyers, posters, CD covers and websites for various local music and entertainment companies.
Today, James creates personal posters and art prints for sale on his website, Signalnoise.com, while working with select clients looking to add new creative to their campaigns. He has worked with such clients as Toyota, Armada Skis, VH1 Latin America and MTV, and has been featured internationally in Computer Arts and Advanced Photoshop magazines.
