Finally! I can show you all a thing I did!
I’ve been working on a logo for a company in its early stages called bringboogie.com. They’re hired out to parties and bring everything from DJ sets and PA equipment to lighting and smoke machines. As I said the company is just beginning so the website isn’t running yet; I’ll repost this when their website is live.
I enjoyed making this, the client was great to work with and I was able to progress through the design with a good amount of guidance as to where he wanted it to go.
Here’s a few variations of the logo, as well as a .gif I’ve literally just made – I hope the client likes it…
I just got a real job (i.e. not freelance artwork) AND the sun is shining AND we’re having a BBQ and some beers to celebrate both occasions (sun is rare in England) AND I’ve just (properly) discovered Finley Quaye, after a friend showing me one song a while back.
The job is door to door charity work, asking for sponsors for almost any charity, and after training and an assessment I’ll be ready to pester anyone with a front door!
It is a good day.
I’ve recently been watching a lot of RSA and TED Talks which focus on a variety of important economical, educational, psychological and philosophical subjects and matters. One man who has inspired me and drawn my interest is Sir Ken Robinson – he focuses on education and the changes that need to be made to the current system we have. He argues that the ‘more creative’ subjects should be taught just as much as Maths, Science and English (not that they’re not creative subjects themselves) and after listening to a few of his talks it’s hard to see why these changes haven’t been made, although I think it’s because of ‘change’ itself. For some reason our government is stubborn to change, even with good reasoning which shows that current methods aren’t working. Children grow to dislike school at about the same rate they are forced out of their creative subjects, which is no coincidence; they get bored by “low-level clerical work” – as Robinson puts it – which is pretty normal and should be expected of children. I don’t want to regurgitate everything Robinson has said in a less convincing manner, so please watch some of his talks:
Some poster designs for a new R&B artist called Chrystian.
I used vibrant summer colours, in-keeping with the style of single being advertised, ‘I Need Your Love’.
Two poster designs I created for the 2013 Camp Bisco design competition:
Some sounds to work to, from the middle of Jamiroquai’s lifespan.
Before this competition I’d never heard of the band, but I have now, they’re called Youngblood Hawke and they want some merchandise artwork done.
Here’s what I offered:
This is a t-shirt design I made for my dad’s birthday. It’s based on the song ‘The Hitcher’ by Then Jerico, he’s going to see them this Monday.
Here’s the song:
Made this for my cousin.
Darren Styles is a hardcore house DJ… I’m not really a fan.
