Cake Original, Art Basel
What an amazing opportunity to work with the Cake Art Agency team. Located in Miami, with offices in downtown Los Angeles, they had contacted me 6 months after I had requested representation for my work. Unfortunately when they contacted me about 2 weeks ago, I had already earned an art manager, Walter W. Brady. But, after having seen my portfolio, they wanted to continue to work with me and requested that I create promotional assets for their 2019 Art Basel event in Miami.
They requested stickers, posters, Instagram stories, and Instagram posts. I created all assets as shown below here, as well as animations for even better engagement with followers. It was a very fun project, the fact that they enjoyed the work and had constant communication with me, was very helpful.
They were looking for a vaporwave, vintage, lo-fi aesthetic that was colourful enough to resemble Miami. I was inspired by my aesthetic as well as Hiroshi Nagai's, referencing real sunsets and evenings in Miami, as well as color schemes that would work well with colder and hotter colors.
