This is my take on the PRELOVED competition.

I wanted to challenge myself by exploring as many interpretations of the word ¨Preloved¨ as possible with a sprinkle of real-world bitterness to spice it up a bit. This is where a newspaper classified ads section became obvious.

To make it even more ¨preloved¨, all the graphic elements for this piece have been used in previous designs and illustrations, so I had to force some of the new ideas into pre-existing vector graphics.

Anyway hope you like it, all over print was my initial idea but it can also work as a regular big print.

Pretty funny. I once made a dingo-ate-my-baby joke with Australians and they were horrified. It appears to still be taboo over there.
