Ask Us

Some fairly quick graphic design work for today...

I spent most of the time making the pattern at the bottom.
Although I scrapped it in the final version (it looked too busy)

Im still quite chuffed with the pattern, so I may use it in something else...

Here is the Library Welcome Leaflet I designed for University students 
in the papery flesh!

Hooray for books!

I would love to live in a big old haunted house

An unsustainable demand

It's easy to forget where meat comes from and how it is produced.
This short clip from the film Samsara, is really beautifully shot.
But I also found it heartbreakingly sad

I'm not saying that becoming vegetarian is the right thing to do...
just that people should be more aware of the reality of the meat industry and the life of an animal bred solely for human consumption

Black Cat progress...

So here on some progress shots of the Black Cat Cafe's bar.
Ive been away for the past 3 weeks so haven't had a chance to finish it, but will hopefully have it done and varnished by next week.

There's also talk of my design being changed slightly and used for other things...

I really like the work of Arthur H. Fellig aka Weegee, a photojournalist in the 30s and 40s.

A friend gave me a roll of black & white film for my birthday and I still haven't used it. Ive been saving it.. for I don't know what.

I'm waiting for the arrival of a new camera (a Canon AE-1) 
Perhaps I will christen it with the roll of black & white

Finished postcard leaflet

Ta da!

So the meeting on Friday went really well. Lots of positive responses for the leaflet.
There were a few tweaks that had to get made, like the use of capital letters for dyslexic students etc.
It goes to print on Monday

Library Welcome Leaflet

I'm currently in the process of redesigning/creating a University Library Welcome leaflet for new students.
These aren't the finished designs.. but the ideas that I'm pitching tomorrow.

I wanted it to be completely different to a boring, corporate style leaflet that students would normally be given.

Some panels are obviously more finished than others (and some I like more than others), but I didn't have very long for this project...
There can also only be 4 panels in the final leaflet! 
(which will be about postcard size)

I've given them a lot to choose from though, so hopefully tomorrow will go well.

Apologies for the lack of posts btw. 
Ive been letting myself have a ridiculously good Summer, as I'm moving away this October.
This all warrants another post however, so that's all I'm saying for now
