Logos | Websites
BOTTOM LINE: Create three logos, one for each division of IV. IV Energy, IV Offshore and IV Solar. They are recruiters specialising in eco jobs within the green, offshore and solar sectors. Each must be recognisable in it’s own right but they must also work together.
KEEP IN MIND: That a fourth division may be added at a later date so the concept must be flexible enough to allow this.
LITTLE EXTRAS: As well as the logos and websites, I also designed leaflets, business cards and powerpoint templates for this client. Image sourcing was also provided for the websites.
Logo | Brochure
BOTTOM LINE: Design a logo and brochure for a high-end property development in Thurrock.
KEEP IN MIND: The logo must be multi-purpose and work equally well on small and large format work.
LITTLE EXTRAS: Supporting concepts for this job that I did whilst working with a London agency were signage, banners and billboards.
Logo Design | Tri-fold Leaflet | Tickets | Poster
BOTTOM LINE: Update existing Concerts at the Castle logo and create a visual identity for each of the three themed events. Design supporting print material to promote the concerts and unique tickets for adults and children across the three nights.
KEEP IN MIND: Themes of the nights, disco, featured band UB40 and tea in tea in the park. Must appeal to all ages and they need to contain a lot of information so key details must be easy to locate.
LITTLE EXTRAS: Sourced a print supplier for this job and provided logo files for use on the client’s event website.
Magazines | Publishing
BOTTOM LINE: I worked for 8 years in a publishing and have serveral current freelance magazine contracts.
KEEP IN MIND: My publishing work has covered numerous titles across a range of subjects. My skills encompass all aspects of magazine work including flatplans, photoshoots, creating page layouts and styles, working on new and launch titles, image photoshopping, cover design, style sheets, graphs and charts, typography, high resolution file creation, and PDF upload systems.
LITTLE EXTRAS: This section shows a selection of magazine covers and spreads I have designed.
Logo | Concertina Fold Brochure
BOTTOM LINE: Whilst working with an agency in London, I was asked to design a logo for a new property development being built on the coast of Cornwall and create a brochure concept to promote it.
KEEP IN MIND: The development will be marketed to adults who enjoy a laid back lifestyle close to the beach.
LITTLE EXTRAS: I made some worn textures for this brochure that were overlaid on the images and inside pages. This gave it a weathered feel reminisant of wind battered-beach huts and salt eroded paint.
Logo | Business Cards | Tri-fold Brochure | Banner Stand
BOTTOM LINE: Design a logo for a Seven Early Intervention. A new social work initiative.
KEEP IN MIND: The word Seven should be the focus as this is the umbrella brand and other divisions will come under it in the future.
LITTLE EXTRAS: Supporting graphics and imagery were sourced for this project and the approved logo design was carried through all subsequent material whether for print or web use. An interesting feature of the business cards was that each one had a different quote on the reverse.
BOTTOM LINE: Design a logo for a high-end nightclub management system.
KEEP IN MIND: That the logo would be used on black and white and across print and digital media.
LITTLE EXTRAS: I created 11 different concepts for this client to see all variations of the logo until we decided on the final design. This was then supplied to him in five formats for use across all media.
BOTTOM LINE: Deliver a logo concept for a new networking company called UGrow.
KEEP IN MIND: The client asked that the design would support the name of the company visually.
LITTLE EXTRAS: The company would be web-based so I created a logo which featured a stand alone icon that could be used within a website design.
BOTTOM LINE: Come up with a logo design for Scouts Canada which can be used on a variety of T-shirt colours.
KEEP IN MIND: The connection to the outdoors and the wide variety of skills and activities that scouts can participate in.
LITTLE EXTRAS: I customised the final design and simplified it so it could be printed in a smaller size on the front of the T-shirt. Then the more elaborate logo was printed full size across the back.
