Tim Horton - The Man
Craft Illustration - Single
Winner: Jacknife Executive Creative Director: Mike Kelar, Mikey Richardson Designer: Shawn Lambino, Jin Yan Producer: Stacey O'Connor Illustrator: Greg Ruhl
Tim Hortons approached Jacknife as part of a new worldwide retail artwork program. For one of the iconic pieces, we created a textural and artful portrait of the man behind the brand, Tim Horton, tastefully integrating his story and career statistics into the visual composition. Mixed media (watercolour, pen and acrylics) combined with modern graphic elements were used to achieve a sense of nostalgia in a contemporary and engaging way.
