Up and coming Burnley-based band Design Rewind asked me to design their logo, album, and launch materials for the release of their debut album. Based on their throwback sound, I chose an 80s-inspired look and feel to bring their listeners back to a funkier time. Their album title was a great inspiration to me while coming up with the design - “Through The Night.” I aimed to capture the unpredictability of a good night out using bold colours and a more erratic grid layout to capture this feeling.
Furious Styles Branding
I have had the pleasure of doing design work for Furious Styles since their humble beginnings as a pub band. Over the last five years, I have designed alongside them, helping them to evolve their branding from typical pub band to an event and wedding cover band. From posters to social posts and brochures to banners (and even their website, which you can view here), I’ve done it all for the Styles crew.
Continentals, a restaurant known for their Mediterranean classics, flips the switch once a month and offers up two very different evenings - Tunes and Tapas, a Spanish-themed smorgasbord, and American Night, a classic night of - you guessed it - American eats.
In my design work for these two events, I aimed to capture the feel of Spain and America in a way that showcases the real aspects of these countries. For American Night, I chose a western canyon setting and diner-style typography, and for Tunes and Tapas, I chose a Spanish architectural scene combined with warm tones.
Music Venue Posters
Over the years, I have done several music posters, flyers, and social media posts and currently do continuing work on a monthly basis for select venues. Here is a small selection - and do watch this space for more!
Born to Be Wild Graphic
The client, Born to be Wild, a personal trainer in Leeds, required a graphic for use on apparel and branding. The client wanted a tattoo-style grizzly bear to represent strength. he illustration was first drawn by hand, then brought into Illustrator to make the finishing touches.
While working at Keenans Estate Agents, I created a series of vector home illustrations to use throughout their collateral. I researched various furniture and household objects to create simplified vector and placed these objects into settings that set the mood.
The Biscuit Bros. Logo & Gig Poster
A logo and poster for one of my dear friends! The Biscuit Bros. are a funk band with a rotating group of musicians that play gigs throughout Lancashire, UK. For the logo, they asked for a retro-inspired logo to be used throughout social media and on posters and flyers. It's been a great project to work on!
Helados Blue Bunny - Pintando Sonrisas
Blue Bunny is a well-known ice cream manufacturing company based in the United States. In 2013, Blue Bunny participated in a series of weekend events in order to increase brand recognition among the Hispanic market in Houston, TX and San Antonio, TX. Pintando Sonrisas ("painting smiles" in English) offered free samples of ice cream, free bunny balloons, games and activities for the whole family, promotion of their app, and a photo station. Materials designed include banners, posters, promotional cards, bunny balloons, staff T-shirts, and "grandes sonrisas" for the family photos.
Read School Logo
Read School was in need of an updated logo that was graphics-based and more representative of the school. Inspired by the stained glass windows in their church, the logo features a powerful yet child-friendly eagle, appropriate for application on signage, clothing, and stationery.
