Independent Birmingham Card


Competition entry to design a loyalty card for Independent Birmingham, an organisation promoting local independent businesses. I went for something hand drawn and painted to emphasise the human aspect of independent business, and included products and imagery from some of my favourite businesses on the scheme.

The brief was that, “The design must be vibrant and unique, championing the values of Independent Birmingham and its ethos, as well as championing our city. The tagline ‘Believe In Birmingham’ must also be featured.”
