Annette Taylor-Anderson’s design entitled “Primrose Hill” is selected as runner-up for “The Outer Limits – beyond zone one” Poster Competition by TFL
I am pleased to announce that my design “Primrose Hill – A View from a Hill” entered for “The Outer Limits” poster competition by TFL has been selected among other artists as runner-up.
I’ve always wanted to design something for TFL and producing this design gave me the opportunity, an opportunity I really enjoyed.
As a designer, many people know me for my graphic work, and not familiar with my drawings. I make a point to draw everyday in my sketchbook to keep my skills up-to-date. More designs or other projects will be revealed at a later date.
I found the brief challenging, and I wasn’t quite sure what kind of design, or what area I wanted to focus on. One Saturday, I was on a mission to research, and visit certain areas/boroughs that appealed to me. I found myself in Camden, taking lots of photos, and then as it was such a lovely day, I walked to Primrose Hill. I sat on the hill taking in the beautiful sunshine, and watching people relaxing, chatting and walking their dogs. I then started to sketch as usual, and turned it into my poster idea. I would like to thank all the judges and TFL for selecting my design.
