The well loved Woolacombe and Mortehoe Voice magazine is published for visitors to the area as well as the local community. Lorna of W and MV required a professional logo to accompany the expanding work she intends to do with the magazine. It was important to her that the logo captured the area (either through colour or the use of iconic landmarks) and that the overall feel was not too corporate. 'Friendly and approachable" - just like the magazine, which is quite 'naive' in its style'.
Since April 2016 I have been working with Draco Pub Company (Now 'Stay original Company)who own and run three well known public houses throughout Somerset. With the pubs having so many offers and events they needed a quick turnaround on posters and flyers that could be printed in-house. The brief was to keep the designs simple - but more importantly to avoid a corporate/branded feel.
Darren's brief for the show stand was to replicate the front of the Rimsavers product box on the main exhibition stand graphic. The bundle also included a pop up counter that you could print graphics on both the front and top. As I have worked on the box design for the Rimsavers product I am familiar with the brands vision. To make the designs easier to imagine in situe I came up with two design visuals for him to choose from. See these and the final product below.
I always enjoy being commissioned for illustration projects so I jumped at the chance to be part of this project! Chella, a friend and writer based in Taunton commissioned me to design her very own avatar for use online on her various social media platforms (Twitter, G+, Pinterest etc). It was important to Chella that the avatar reflected her Caribbean background and was in a flat, vector style. Taking inspiration from her brief and images Chella liked - together we came up with this final...
The design brief for this logo design was very simple - "Something that reflects the eccentricity of the company". The Stay Original Company approached me to design them a logo for their up-coming company name change. The organisation run four (and potentially more) pubs throughout the South West. The decor, accommodation, food provided at each pub are considerably creative and individual. It was important that the logo was exciting and fresh - representing the originality and individuality of...
The Little Latte are a new and very successful Artisan bakery & cafe based in Bagshot, Surrey. The owners needed some printed menus for their 'eat in' customers and for distribution around the local area. My design was in line with the rustic feel of the cafe and their carefully chosen awning colour. I used logos from their fabulous list of suppliers and a nice dash of hot pink to introduce some fun and colour.
Mud Mountain is a company that supply quality terracotta pots handmade by Artisan potters in Tuscany, Italy. They sell online and to garden designers and landscapers. Not the kind of pots you find in garden centres! They were looking to obtain a brand awareness with a logo that reflected: Quality, Artistic and Rustic. The company name doesn't say what they do, so the logo needed to help with that in some way.
I regularly create social media graphics for Name It Labels. On a lovely sunny April afternoon I received an email from Gillian and it went something like this: "Need postcard for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Something along the lines of the old Uncle Sam poster thing - 'Bloggers we need you." See what I came up with!
Sophia approached me to design an identity for her new business - a 'news and views' website - bringing trusted news from the West Country (with a focus on Mendips, Wrington Vale and Chew Valley). The aim was to design an identity that was able to attract the interest of people within the age range of 25-55, so it was very important that the design was friendly, vibrant and inspirational - yet kept a sense of authority and professionalism.
A lovely magazine advert designed for a Taunton based lawn specialist. Gary needed something simple and professional for any future promotion in local magazines, so I designed a half page and quarter page advert in both colour and black and white in line with his businesses current branding. Following that, I designed some business cards for presenting to new and potential customers.
