End of a long week, back at my desk in England. Today, I put the finishing touches to the ‘Off My Trolley’ branding, ready to be added to their business proposal. Should have it wrapped up by this weekend, looking forward to seeing how the project turns out this summer. Keeping things local.
The branding I’m putting together this week is for an old friend from school, a new company, Henniker Clothing/Paintball Co. Something I’ve been looking forward to making a start on. After some initial sketches, putting together the style of characters & perfecting the ligatures, I got the vector of the type down. I then began to develop a number of outcomes, keeping things fairly traditional, some simple typography to accompany the main logo. A work in progress.
I’ll be wrapping this up over the next few days, logo & type submission for The Highline. Really happy with how this design is turning out, a simple sketch on paper, but developed into a strong look for the brand. Look out for sticker slaps across Canada & the UK.
England - Berlin 2013
Branding I’m currently working on for a new Bristol based project from DJ Snafu & Formulate media. It’s all still on the quiet, so I can’t really explain what it’s all about, but it’s got some strong links with the Bristol music scene & up coming festivals over the summer. Think it’s a solid idea & should really make a profound impression this year at events across the South West.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks, working day & night, travelling back & forth from Berlin… Finding some time to fit in some new branding jobs, as well as wrapping up one or two pieces for existing clients, such as Festival Number 6 & the Open Lifestyle store. Putting together their in store branding, even a new window decal in their shop window. All about the details.
Been developing the branding work for The Highline Bike Company, taking it back to the drawing board, build it from the ground up. Trying to give the type a more traditional look. Going to work on the digital type, work on a sort of seal design, using element like the bike cog/gear & the monogram. Maybe even look up some other bike parts, draw up some extra tools as icons. Another work in progress.
Recent branding job for a new record label, Castle Recordings. The client wanted to keep the main type stripped down & simple, while having the castle icon as a sort of accent. I look forward to seeing how it’s used across the brand, maybe cut out of the vinyl sleeve or stamped into the centre of the label. A strong look.
Never not working - JS Design ‘13
Feels like ages ago that I put this project together, only two years now since I graduated. Couldn’t be more grateful to all the companies & brands who I’ve worked with since then, a humbling experience. Got some strong projects lined up over the next couple of months, 2013 is going to be a big year. Back to the daily grind, working between Bath, Bristol, London & Berlin. Never not working.
Attention to detail - JS Design Monogram ‘13
Think I’ve got the final designs down for PETA’s new campaign, Milk Kills. Received some really strong feedback from them, working closely on the strap lines & overall look of the campaign. Above is the main logo, plus a couple of additional pieces of type & illustrations to be used as promo & merchandise. Looking forward to seeing how the project develops.
JS Design Re-Brand - Simple monogram based around my initials, after a couple of tweaks & changes. Think this could be the one.
