I was commissioned to create a design for a promotional tote bag for the London-based company, Cucumber Tony.
The company provides a simple, intuitive way to deploy WiFi networks. I usually create my abstract striped tote bags by hand using paint and masking tape. For this one I wanted a similar approach but instead I drew everything out using Posca pen then scanned it into Adobe Illustrator, creating the resulting vector file.
Betty & Bernie Logo Design
The brief for this design was an interesting mix. The client wanted a logo incorporating nautical elements, bold colours but specially yellow, and sailor tattoo style writing.
After pitching a series of sketches including various nautical symbols the client loved the star idea, and I also included the scroll as it matched the products that the company would be making.
The finished logo is at the top of this page. The images below various images from the entire creative process, ending with my original sketches at the bottom.
Pacific Trash Record Label Design
I designed the record label image for Seattle-based indie label Pacific Trash, based on a simple brief created by the label head. The image was completed using my usual mix of handmade paint and Posca pen drawing, but I used Photoshop a lot more to edit the end result. The first image shows my logo design on the latest cassette release for Brooklyn band Lazy Queen, and my 'summer' palm trees design and 'winter' evergreen trees design on badges.
I will be working on more in-house design work for Pacific Trash in the near future, and I'm available for any freelance logo or branding design jobs.
Through the website Talenthouse I entered a competition to design 'good vibes' inspired artwork for the phone company Viber. I didn't win but I did get commended and shared by the official Viber Twitter account.
I'm sharing it here as I was really pleased with the results and I plan to turn them into prints at some point.
At the top of this page is a band poster I recently design for San Francisco based band Sirena Victima. The font was created by hand then manipulated in PhotoShop, as was the background which was originally an older abstract painting of mine.
Below that are some of the posters I made for my own art shows, again in PhotoShop, but incorporating some of my own scanned hand drawn elements.
I'm keen to work with creatives, bands, and musicians on artwork. Get in touch through the contacts page if you're interested.
Custom Logo Design Service
Get in touch if you want to hire me to design a logo or branding for you. My approach is different from many others as I always include hand drawn or painted elements into my designs. These aren't standard fonts and shapes that everyone else will be using, so what you'll get will look incredibly original. I will always try to incorporate any requests and odd ideas you have.
