Illustration Pencil illustrations are the primary design element of the brand. Illustrations are to be drawn on White paper and scanned or photographed to be placed into a digital design. Ideally simple, flat, one-colour illustrations are preferable. Primarily only pencils in the colours as close to the primary brand colours as possible are to be used, with the addition of White . Some aditional accent colours can be used sparingly. Illustrations can be placed on Black or White, but only White illustrations are to be placed over colour. Writing within illustrations that is not body copy, but part of the design is to be PencilPeteFONT, or if you prefer to hand-draw a few key words, these must be done in the style of Valentina Regular and only in caps. Illustrations can bleed off the page, and interact with one another and contain writing. See additional examples and rules below.
