One of Pinkeye Graphics’ recent collaborations was with Isle of Wight charity Footprint Trust on its new ‘Energetic‘ initiative – a project which helps young families and young people to save money through sensible use of domestic energy. As well as designing the branding for this worthwhile project, Cat also created two leaflets plus her biggest design job to date – the back of a Southern Vectis bus.
Cat created the artwork in Adobe Illustrator. It was important to create it in a vector format as the design had to be scaled up to the size of a double decker without any loss of quality.
The Energetic bus was launched in St Thomas’ Square, Newport on a beautiful bright day in October 2010. Ray Harrington-Vail from the Footprint Trust plus Neil Hartwell, trustee of the ScottishPower Energy People Trust were there to unveil Cat’s work and the designer herself was persuaded to come out from behind her virtual drawing board to help things along.
