The Brief “We had a look at all the photography businesses out there, and to be honest, they all looked the same! We want something completely different and if we can have a little fun with it, then all the better.” With the creative door wide open I set to work on my most complex logo to date. Drawing the character was great fun but the difficulty I faced was making sure he wasn’t to masculine and appealed to all demographics. So here you have it Nuzulu a cute little ninja with a camera.
Here is a lovely little logo I’ve done for a Cleaning company called Miss Buckets. The brief was simple the owner wanted and I quote “something that was going to bite her in the backside” (Must be a Northern saying?). With that in mind look how this little beauty scrubbed up?
Here are a handful of pages from this month’s edition of the Voice Magazine. 27,000 copies are distributed each month, the free publication covers everything from local news right through celebrity interviews.
A single page site that was designed for the guys at Lot49. The brief was simple here’s the text and some photos do your thing. With a healthy balance of images and text things started to take shape quickly but I wasn’t happy with just putting text for a logo at the top, so I did a little something in illustrator. This project took me the best part of a working day to finish. I was really pleased with the results and the response I got from Mark that the page looked “very professional” and that he “loved” the logo.
Just finished a new logo for Highgrade Recruitment. These guys specialise in teaching jobs, nursery & support jobs for schools, nurseries and colleges throughout the Wales.
Eating Out Wales is a guide to some of the best the area has to offer. From fine-dining establishments to venues serving up modern European cuisine and traditional Welsh fare, here is a comprehensive guide, which accommodates every budget, taste and requirement. You’ll see a 100 page A5 magazine I recently designed. It was put together using Adobe Indesign CS2, Photoshop CS2. The only difficulty I had was browsing the pictures on an empty stomach. I think you’ll agree they are all mouthwatering.
Straight off the back of the Catapult Website I teamed up again with the very talented John Mitchell to create the front end of new website that allows building merchants to sell end of stock products at discounted rates. With the catchy name Dwanged a “Scottish Term” we set to work on a gumtree, ebay style, autotrader style website.
A logo for the very talented Matt Callanan. Make sure you go and check out some of his work, especially his winning video for the Norwegian band Royksopp.
A recent personal project of mine, I aimed to demonstrate a pure understanding for digital design.
These were the initial designs submitted to Newport council for their Christmas Campaign. They loved the initial design and with a quick title change to Discover Your Newport the concept became the entire Christmas campaign. This included the design of bus sides, street banners, posters and advertisements for many different publications.
A nice clean corporate logo for commercial insurances brokers Penn Insure Ltd.
To quote 80′s boy band Bros “When will I will I be famous? When will I see my picture in the paper?” Well I can now answer that question and say I saw my picture in the Voice Magazine on July 2010. With the TJ’s in the square event which was taking place after our print deadline, we needed to come up with a cover that created the impression of a festival atmosphere and people coming together for the love of music. This meant working closely with our photographer and design team, by using an image of a stage, clouds and a massive crowd I was able to bring life to this artwork. Voice also covers many other features, here are a few examples; a product page on the latest in celeb fashion/endorsements, a camping article, plugging local retailers and finally Cineworld encouraged us to put together editorial for them in there current image / branding.
