I am happy to announce that the identity I created for Lions & Lambs Media Group LLC is to be published in WOLDA 09 (Worldwide Logo Design Annual. This is a huge honour. You can see some of the other winners here. Maybe next year we can win one of those awesome trophies they have.

The World Cup is almost upon us (a real worldwide tournament to any World Series fans reading). I’ve just been shown the new logo for the World Cup being hosted in 2014. I knew it reminded me of something. If ever a logo made you think “Oh dear!” then this HAS to be it. What do you think?

Not many people like TV adverts, in fact it could be said they are an inconvenience and a waste of time, but the like them or loathe them, they help to drive a brand name down your throat (or eyes in this instance). Fortunately, not all ads are a mish-mash of bells & whistles packed with slogans, starbursts & offers. Creativity sells, and it is the most creative & clever adverts that get the public talking about the brands they...

It’s official. The election season is in, so time to roll out the baby kissers, dust off the old croners and most importantly release the cheesy advertising campaigns. You may have recently noticed that the Labour party has scored an own goal with a certain poster that pictures the opposing party leading, David Cameron as Gene from the TV programme Ashes to Ashes. Amazingly, the poster was designed by the winner of a competition (yes a design contest). Within 24...

If you have seen them before, then I apologise. Anyway, I decided to do a post like this because it seems like logo inspiration websites are breeding with one another. They pretty much have the same content, the same logos and also the same featured designs. I thought it would be nice to throw some good old fashioned new eye candy into the mix in DWD fashion. Feast your eyes on these: The Impeccable Pig Eatery Oink. designed by Splash...

Happy Easter to all my clients, fellow designers & friends worldwide. Enjoy the short break and I will see you on Tuesday for more design madness. I leave you with a carbon copy of the Turin Shroud that I just found in my attic. I think he is listening to Metallica. DWD.

Anyone that has ever used word processing software has the ability to arrange content on a page. Most non-designers will be familiar with headers and footers and a select few will even know what the term "body text" means, and most beginners will not know what a "pull quote" is used for. When it comes to being a design professional, page layouts and the use of typography can become far more complicated, so it is important to have knowledge of...

Firstly, I would like to point out that this article is by no means serious in any way and is just a very extravagant analysis made by a designer with too much time on his hands and an over active imagination. I recently heard a claim along the lines of: 50% of the money in the world is controlled by 1% of the population. The amount of truth in that statement is questionable but also intriguing. I began to wonder...

Way back in June 2009 I wrote a certain article for Smashing Magazine and it got both positive and negative reviews. The article was in fact edited and included words which I would never dream of using. Some have said that that this list is aimed at beginners rather than experienced designers, which suggests that have missed the purpose of this article and more importantly the title. This is a compilation of the most “common” mistakes in the field I...

What would you do if you wanted to buy…say..an electric toothbrush? You might inquire at your dentist or take a chance at the local chemist but I would put money on most ordering from a website. Before the dawn of the internet, when most people shopped in REAL shops, there was a store that claimed to stock everything. From jewellery to spice racks, it had it all. And it still does. That company is Argos. Here is the logo you...

I posted this article about how the “credit crunch” was effecting designers last year so I thought it might be a good idea to give it a little revisit. I got thinking about how the industry has adapted to the challenges brought about by restrictions & the main change that I can see is that the role of social media has exploded. 2009 really was the year that social networking took off in the mainstream. As more and more people...

For a music channel that is 30 years old next year it could be forgivable for them to show signs of aging, maybe even a little stuck in their ways. But a brand aimed at a younger fashion savvy generation can’t afford to be left behind, and I think this is reason for the recent brand overhaul of MTV. See below: Is it fatter or shorter? I will let you decide. However, the most notable change is the removal of...
