Slick’s Barbershop Typographic Window Art
Based in Glasgow, Slick's Barbershop invite local illustrators to transform their shop front window.
Following the success of Slick’s Barbershop Typographic Window Art vol.01, Scottish born multi-disciplined designer Craig Black was challenged to create a design that would advertise The Shave Room whilst keeping the Slick’s ethos strong.
After being invited by The University West of Scotland to talk to their design students, Craig decided to give the students the opportunity to get involved and help him bring the project to life; “Thinking about the big challenge ahead and the quick turnaround of two days to complete, I reached out to a fantastic group of student/freelance graphic designers, photographer and film crew to collaborate on this exciting project.” said Craig.
A making of video is now on Vimeo, which documents the project from start to finish.
Taking inspiration from architecture, design and everything life has to give, Craig pursues his passion for typography (be it hand-drawn, crafted or digital).
