Projects
  • Tropical Triumph Gin Liqueur
    Tropical Triumph Gin LiqueurI was the winning designer in a competition to create a label design for the new limited edition Tropical Triumph Gin Liqueur for Stirling Gin Distillery. This was my first project applying the new techniques I have learned using my iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, and ProCreate to develop the illustration. It was an exciting project to produce and was a great opportunity to work with Stirling Gin Company.

  • Tiger - Wild Series - Illustration
    Tiger - Wild Series - IllustrationThe Tiger was an excellent animal to develop into an illustration for my Wild Series. Know for their strip furs and killer eyes, these were perfect to convert into my geometric drawing style. The animal has been a symbol of magnificence, strength, elegance and bravery and has been associated with fearlessness and valour. Find out more at www.markkarwowski.com/illustration

    DesignerArnold Clark
    Glasgow, United KingdomFull Time
    I work on a diverse range of projects in my day-to-day work, supporting various branches with print and promotional material such as new car launches and weekend events. My work output ranges from posters to direct mail to develop design elements that can be used in Google GDNs and various other digital formats. I work to tight timescales, often being required to prepare press advertisements to be sent to the printer within a few hours. Working closely with stakeholders and franchise managers, I develop creative marketing solutions to solve sales issues and aid in communication with in-house staff. These solutions usually consist of campaign plans and presentations. My goal is to communicate effectively to the customer so they are receiving the right information to make their car buying experience, and any dealings with Arnold Clark services, easy and stress-free. I have worked with franchises such as BMW, MINI, Peugeot, Arnold Clark Motorstore, Mercedes-Benz, Vauxhall, Renault, Dacia and various in-house campaigns. I was also allowed to be a part of the team that developed the new Arnold Clark brand and visual collateral for the head office in Hillington, Glasgow.
