Volume One

Poster made for Manchester skateboard video, Volume One. The illustrations were largely focused on behind the scenes photographs rather than specific tricks. The piece incorporated the worker bee motif, which was made popular as a symbol for Manchester during the Industrial Revolution. It also echoes the skateboarders' grit and determination as well as referencing the local Manchester skate shop Note, who adopted the bee for their own branding.
