A Portrait of magazine designer Richard Turley
This is one of a series of portraits of main stage speakers at creative festival Offset 2014 done by Illustrators Ireland members.
The portraits were part of Illustrators Ireland's promotion strategy for the festival. The brief was to reflect something of the subject's work in the image.
A number of Turley's covers for the revamped Bloomberg Businessweek feature hand-drawn typography, often superimposed on the main subject's face. I used quotes from interviews with the designer to mirror this.
Here's the portrait in place in a lineup of top class Irish illustration in the foyer of the Bord Gais Energy Theatre. Thanks to Mario Sughi for the photo.
