Forbes. Evolving an iconic lifestyle brand.
Forbes Japan contacted us to illustrate their interesting issue of cutting-edge technology and new production processes. They wanted to show users how industries make use of drones, autonomous cars, wind power or artificial intelligence.
Onboarding & briefing
As with many big publishers, the deadline was tough – we needed to deliver the final work in one week. We got a detailed brief and got to work.
We started asking a few questions and sketching some ideas that we think could work. After some iterations, the sketches got approved and we proceeded to polish and digitalize them.
Consistency, brand & style
Creating a consistent style and color palette was important to ensure that the Forbes brand and the overall essence of the article was reflected.
We finished the set of illustrations in 5 days, the issue was published a couple weeks after, and Forbes was kind enough to send us a physical copy of the magazine. Feel free to get yours here!
