99 Silhouettes
Silhouettes are becoming an increasingly popular technique used across the spectrum from high profile TV campaigns, product identities, magazine and book illustration to web graphics. Our forthcoming publication ’99 Silhouettes’ will be an accessible visual resource for designers and creatives, whether simply looking for inspiration or interested in commissioning artwork and illustration in this genre.

Any artist or designer, either student or professional, chosen for inclusion will benefit from this invaluable form of self-promotion, having artists’ and designers’ credits and contact details displayed as either footnotes or in an index of artists. The publication will reflect the diverse approaches, versatility and influences adopted when producing silhouette based artwork.
What do we mean by silhouette? An image consisting of the outline of a person or object, mainly filled in with a solid color, which usually appears dark against a light background, light against a dark background, or in some other way in contrast to the background. An instant visual impact is created by extracting and using the most basic forms of an object, figure or structure, whilst still retaining the most communicative elements, and therefore, the overall presence of the subject itself.
What is eligible for inclusion? Photography in which the subject is silhouetted against its background (this technique could incorporate ceramic pieces or sculpture), fine art, lino-cut, photocopies, etching, typography, stencil art, graphic design, fine art, painting and illustration – including vector illustration where the predominant feature is a silhouette, or could be described as a silhouette of any particular subject. if you are in any doubt as to whether a piece of artwork would be eligible for inclusion, please feel free to contact us prior to submission.
