Here are my final deliverables alongside the design files. I thoroughly enjoyed this assignment as I had the liberty to explore illustration methods and styles which are more ‘unconventional’ and ‘playful’! Designing for collateral is not as simple as reusing graphics as I had to think of the mechanics and purpose of each item, which made me design them with more thought.

Low and behold! This is the final submission!
This is the final composition I settled for. I placed the composition within a frame which is supposed to resemble looking through a window of a space ship. I felt like this gave my illustration more depth and I also thought what a fascinating yet puzzling sight it would be to chance upon a distressed moon.
More about this illustration – as you can tell, I manifest myself as the moon in this composition. This stylistic approach incorporates my prominent features such as my hair, my nose, my eye bags and my pale-ish skin. The representation of the moon also depicts me as a late sleeper.
The surrounding planets are circling around me, keeping me up and I have trouble managing my time accordingly. These planets are meant to represent things such as my assignments and the software I use for them. The blue planet resembles swimming, something which I enjoy doing, however, I do not have enough time for that.
I decided to remove the texts on the planets as I felt that they were too representational and somethings are better left unsaid. I also added a little detailed strokes to accentuate the orbiting of the planets, giving the illustration a bit of dynamics.
