Tom Lane, more commonly known as Ginger Monkey, is an independent illustrator, letterer, and designer currently living in Bristol (UK). Craft is the driving force behind Tom's work. His deep exploration of techniques and styles of the past are fused with 21st century sensibilities to create unique and highly emotive images. Tom has worked extensively over the last 7 years for an array of international and national clients, large and small, including: Coco-Cola, Air Jordan, Sony Ericsson, Bicycle, BMW, and Mercedes. If you have a project in mind or simply want to reach out and say hello please don't hesitate to get in touch using the contact details below. www.gingermonkeydesign.com

Here’s a project I (Tom Lane – aka Ginger Monkey) created for the good folks at AIR JORDAN. Last summer the team asked whether I would design the packaging artwork for a new limited edition ‘Year of the Dragon’ Air Jordan shoe. What started out as a packaging job then snowballed after the first round of visuals. Eventually my work got incorporated into the shoe design, bag, some apparel, and a few more things to come.

I was challenged with creating a system to the design so that it could adapt to different size boxes and be rejigged by the Air Jordan designers. The final box size was yet to be fully determined so I needed to create artwork that could expand in width and height. All the elements therefore had to be individual so they could be shifted around without destroying the overall effect.

This was a really enjoyable project and working with the team has been one of my favourite collaborative experiences. From the get go I was given the freedom and trust to develop the work as I saw it and the input they gave me was always incredibly constructive and respectable. I’m told everyone is really over the moon with the results.
