The Tower of Babel – Photo editing and graphic assets
Barnaby Barford is an internationally recognised artist based in London.
His latest work is The Tower of Babel, a six metre high ceramic installation created for the V&A and displayed in the Museum’s Medieval & Renaissance Galleries from 8th September to 1st November 2015.
The Tower comprises of 3,000 unique bone china replicas of real London shops. He travelled all round London photographing the shop fronts.
For each building the images needed editing – perspective adjustment, retouch, colour correction and final output setting, preparing for the final artwork to be made into a ceramic transfer to be put onto the bone china. Barnaby also commissioned me to design the back stamp of the pieces and the header for the website which is now being used as the logo for the packaging. I was also asked to design a promotional web banner to be used on sites in America.
