This is my Portfolio.
Trōv’s original site had been adapted from a Wordpress theme and suffered (as many unoptimised Wordpress Sites do) from slow access times, heavy page load and code bloat - 5 different grid systems and about 27 different scripts to accomplish a few shared tasks.
I never work for free, and I refuse to enter design competitions - it devalues designers and the hard work we put into projects, our businesses and careers - but it's important to pay it forwards sometimes.
Philip von Nell.
Philip von Nell Wines had a long and colourful history selling Fine Wine and Spirits to restaurants, bars and hotels across the UK but had yet venture into selling directly to clients.
'Like a punch to the face!' - That's how I pitched UK Workspace's rebrand to them, and that's what got MD Matt Jackson really excited about the project. He didn't like doing things by halves.
Blue Eye Aviation.
Of all the logos I have produced in my career - and I've made a lot - the logo for Blue Eye Aviation holds a special place in my old, withered designer's heart.
Fit Property was an up-and-coming student lettings company who needed a brand that was a bit more refined, but would also stand out from the bright primary coloured competition in their home city.
I was approached by MoreNIche to create the brand collateral for BlackWolf, a sports nutrition brand client of theirs. I don't know a lot about working out, but I know how to create a confrontational brand.
KudosQA needed a website to showcase their QA services, and approached me to design and build it for them, working from a logo they had already commissioned.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and when you have imagery of this calibre to use in your designs, you can speak volumes. Anticipate Invitations leverages the power of CraftCMS and the flexibility of Snipcart to deliver an eCommerce store that really goes above and beyond.
Flexy is a radical new way to recruit casual staff in the hospitality industry, and the company reached out to me to produce a new corporate brochure for them.
Emma's Artisan Bakery.
Emma's asked me to pitch a logo concept to them for their punk bakery in Liverpool, and I was happy to oblige.
