For this background composition, I utilised a number of techniques and design ideas explored in my previous blog posts. The idea was to have the page filled with ‘shadow-style’ narrowboats, each adorned with a corporate brand. The design and form of each brand will remain untouched, so as to be instantly recognisable. However, I attempt to juxtapose each corporate brand with gypsy style folk art so signify modern day brands using canals.
