Freedom

Your Freedom Ends Where Mine Begins

A politically inspired design! Words I heard from a very wise man indeed… for in a democracy someone always has to give up their rights for the sake of another’s. Original graphics and design by me, Mad Matatu! You can also find this design in 2 tone black and white for an even more bold statement. Available on tote bags, t-shirts, hoodies,mugs,stickers,banners,bumper stickers, Sigg water bottles, childrens clothing, magnets and pins! Check out the super sexy womens hoodie black and white version with the design on the back… sleek eh???ladies_freedom_hoodie

Happy shopping!

My Second Teddy Bear Design approved for Voting!!!

A second design of mine was approved for voting =) This has been really fun and a great way of experimenting with different concepts within limitations (the contest requires we use no more than 3 colors and use their bear template for the design). So my second bear was inspired by my favorite painting of all time: THE KISS, by Gustav Klimt.  If you like him or Pangea and think them vote worthy please do vote and share these links with your friends, family and coworkers =)

Retro Games Logo Finished!

I have been working on a logo for a new client of mine that sells retro/vintage games and we are both so happy with the final design! The client showed it to a group of online merchants to ask their opinions and the response was simply fantastic!

Here’s an example:

“Whoa – you sell video games? And here all this time I thought you sold shaving cream. Does that answer your question? Thumbs up.”

LOVE it!!!! If you’d like to see the whole design click the link below…. bonus points if you can come up with a name for the robot/mascot I created for him! 😉

Magisterrex Retro Video Games Logo Design by Francesca Cornell, madmatatus.com

It was great working with Dan and he pretty much gave me carte blanche… Video games… any games in general in fact are FUN.. and so a FUN, colorful design that reminds us all of our own inner child was the way to go! Another comment we got in fact said just that:

“What a fun logo. Makes me feel like a kid just looking at it. You’re right, she’s very talented.”

I wanted to use the new trend of retro/vintage artwork made to order for the new web 2.0 glossy look. The logo is going to make a great center piece for the header that I am now designing for his web store. If you’d like to have a look at his shop it’s here:

We’re redoing the whole store so it’ll be a HUGE change by the time we’re finished! I can’t wait…. this is what I was born to do… DESIGN! =)

Cheers!
