This was a follow on design form The Kids Love Nature Team for their Nature Nursery business. They needed an information leaflet drop to go out to residents within the local area to promote the opening of the new nursery. We kept the fun natural look flowing through the design to really focus the concept of the nursery’s different approach to learning.
Ecademy asked if I could help design another book for them for this social media and SEO business book. The main title is called ‘Fusion’ and relates to the importance of the various marketing tools working together as one. The ‘n’ of fusion made a perfect magnet shape which gives a strong visual element and works with the underlying message of the book.
This is the second brochure I’ve designed for Justin. This time Justin wanted a more utilitarian / traditional feel; something that harked back to the old packaging boxes of the 30′s. After liaising with Headland Printers on various paper swatches we went for a pulpboard cover and 100% recycled Cyclus inner pages. Cyclus is an off-white and has a nice coloured fleck to it. A6 in size meant it could be posted in Justin’s smallest jiffy bag size. The brochure is finished with a new square stitched spine to give it a book feel.
This is the eleventh book design I have produced for Ecademy Press and the second for the Author, Nigel Vardy. Nigel is a fantastic guy and client to work with. Once again, he gave me free reign on the design and feel for the book. For some inspiration I always read a few chapters of the manuscript. I wanted to put across the adventure aspect and the British climbing record that was made by Nigel in the book. Keeping to a patriotic palette of red and blue and tilting the title by 45 degrees to make a mountain peak shape. The dotted lines on the cover also outline the elevations of each peak climbed by Nigel in the book. You can get your copy here.
Bristol based jewellery designer, Zöe Bassi, commissioned me to produce a hand-out mini-brochure for use at shows and to mail out to potential customers. Zöe wanting something different from the other examples she had seen before. This 8 page fold-out design is fun as it allowed to run the design seamlessly across both sides to get maximum impact when flat. Litho printed on an uncoated 300gsm Recycled stock by Headland Printers, Penzance.
Brochure specification: Size: 8 page, 120x120mm | Ink: Full colour litho | Stock: 300gsm uncoated 100% recycled
This was a product brochure design for the Interior design shop French Grey Interiors, Cirencester. Using FG’s existing branding I was asked to present the range of home ware items in a clean and contemporary layout that is easy to read and order from. The A5 layout meant that it would still fall in the small letter postage bracket which kept postage to a minimum. Printed by Headland Printers.
Brochure specification: Size: 20 page, A5 | Ink: Full colour litho | Stock: 150gsm silk
The PTM asked me to design and produce a guidebook for their giftshop. We settled on a 210mm square design which gives a great compromise between A5 and A4 and looks a bit different. A colour coded time-line graphic runs up the left and right edges of each page to highlight the year of the museum’s history. The layout was kept clean and easy to read with the large archived photographs giving the main interest. I also illustrated the map of the valley and the 3D plans of the museum and tunnels. It was printed locally by Headland Printers, Penzance.
Brochure specification: Size: 44 page, 210x210mm | Ink: Full colour litho | Stock: Cover – 300gsm with mat laminated. Inner – 170gsm silk | Finishing: Perfect bound with 4mm spine
These Skoda UK stage graphics were produced for an awards evening to celebrate various Skoda awards for their cars. After the chosen concepts were finalised I set about creating the hi-res versions and incorporating the branding elements. Using Photoshop, I blended together three separate images to create the Yeti banner. At 3.7m x 4m in size they were printed by a specialist large format printers on to a single piece of vinyl.
