How do you give something that is invisible an identity? Something that you use everyday without being able to touch it. It has no packaging, yet comes in packages so to speak. I am obviously talking about Cellular Mobile Networks. There are said to be 62.5 million mobile phones in the UK alone, and of course to be able to use one you need a service. Branding a service can be tricky but often provides the greatest room for creativity...

My inspiration for the logo was one of those old school photo puzzles that you used to get seen...

Each different design has a unique personality. You can read the post here: Click

I was recently shown a new fun initiative to help children who struggle to find the words to communicate over at www.adoptaword.co.uk. The concept is simple, a £20 donation goes towards helping a great cause and in return you get an official adoption certificate for any word of your choice. As a designer, the decision was easy so I decided to plumb for “logo” which will take great pride on my wall in my office. They have a pretty cite...

Enjoy. “Design is thinking made visual.” Saul Bass “Computers are to design as microwaves are to cooking.” Milton Glaser “The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your...

Been a while since I’ve posted anything on the blog as the last month has been completely chaotic, but in a good way. The most notable and perhaps challenging projects that I have completed to date is the new identity for Lions & Lambs Media Group LLC. The brief was fairly simple, on paper at least, to incorporate a lambs head into a lions. And so voila, here is the final result. If you are looking for a new creative...

If you’re a follower of football (that’s soccer for my stateside readers), and in particular the English Premier League then you may be familiar with the owner of Wigan Athletic Football Club. And even if you’re not then there is a chance that you have indirectly given him money before.

I love nothing better than illustrating quirky concepts and they don’t get much quirkier than this. The lovely Angie from Gnomeangel got in touch seeking a new identity for her blog/etsy store and I was more than happy to oblige. The name Gnomeangel has a very interesting and unusual background as Angie explains: It’s a hybrid nickname a friend gave me. I used to steal gnomes when I got drunk (don’t laugh, I grew up in a small Aussie town...
