Omar – Art show – Toronto

This is not a love song

I’m a busy fella. So when a close friend of mine called and asked me to do some illustration work for a concert, I politely passed. That is until he mentioned that the concert in question was: OMAR.

It’s been 10 years since his last performance in Canada. And as of one of my all-time favourite artists, I could not pass up the opportunity to reconnect.

8 years ago, I sent him some artwork from Canada to the UK. He responded with a signed CD that read:

From one artist to another – Omar.

It has been perched on my magazine shelf in my office ever since. A reminder that whatever I do to make ends meet, at my core, I’m still an artist. Read more:

Buy Vector Smooth Urban Girl Portrait

No credits required

One of the reasons that our vector illustrations are a refreshing alternative, is the fact that we merge several elements to come up with unique styles. We hit the streets with our sketchbooks. Drawing pretty girls, photographing buildings and even pulling typography from street signs.

Unique Vector Illustrations

We love finding those ingredients. But by converting them into mathematical vectors, we pass on the flexibility to you. With just a few clicks you can adapt colours, move elements and place this young lady in the right context for your purposes. But the best part is, you save time. Time is money. And money (although not the most important thing in life) makes the world go round. We want to keep more of it in your pocket.

URBANCE Official Trailer from Steambot on Vimeo.

URBANCE is based on a short film by animator Joel Dos Reis Viegas. The neon-colored series combines elements of SF, hip-hop, and just plane rave-flavored action: ‘In the big city, gender war rises. Sex is prohibited because of a genetic deadly virus. Ruled by hate and anger, boys and girls grow up apart from each other, forming rivals gangs. Among these lost teenagers, Kenzell and lesya will fight adversity and defy all the rules in order to live their love and restore peace.’

Jeckl Website Design

There are allot of agencies with big ideas out there. Allot of talk. Lots of theories on how to do a job right. Jeckl is not one of them. They build incredible brand experiences for tier one brands that really stand out.
Vectorvault was tasked to design a website that summarizes what they do. I soon learned, that’s not as easy as it sounds. Especially when your main product is fantasy.

Ancient Design Principals Matched With Modern Technique

This is the premier design project for Vectorvault. And what an assignment to be awarded. Every step of the way has been an education and an opportunity to apply the design principals of Vectorvault across several mediums.

Mathematics are at the heart of ancient African culture. Geometry and measurement play a role in architecture as well as the art of that period. Vector art is also based on math. The synergies between ancient and modern techniques allowed this project to flourish. Even with a small dedicated team, and tight timelines, it was the foundation of vector art that allowed this project to be launched on time and on budget…

RasTa at the ROM – Visual design for The Royal Ontario Museum

By Adam Jarvis
Creative Director, VECTORVAULT

This Summer I was very honoured to be asked to work on the movie poster and emblem for a documentary called “RasTa – A Soul’s Journey“. Donisha Prendergast is the Grand Daughter of the legendary Bob Marley, and her travels have taken her to the four corners of the world to discover the roots of RasTafari.

“We are pleased and proud to be a part of such an innovative program,” said ROM representatives, Dr. Julian Siggers and Dr. Silvia Forni, who pushed the initiative forward. “It is important to us to be a leader and make a contribution to the Black community”.

Vectorvault has been called upon once again to develop visuals for an Exhibit at The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto during the month of February for Black History Month. Once again, I am thrilled to be a part of it. Here is the design for the invitation:

rasta at the rom

The technique for this design was created using vector art. Learn more about it here.

This project requires a certain level of style and sophistication. Yet still have the flexibility to translate across several mediums. All of the imagery was drawn from The Vectorvault Vector Library. I wanted to make sure that it could live with the visual design of the film. I learned allot about the importance of symbolism from Tyson Brown. A RasTa himself with a passion for world history and the significance of RasTafari within it. He kept me on track.

If you are in Toronto during February, please visit The ROM and explore the rich history surrounding this mysterious and often misunderstood religion.

It’s been a great experience…
