It all depends on the extent of the work that goes in. Always happy to talk it over & try to meet different clients needs. Send an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to discuss it in more detail
Autumn 2013 | Berlin - Community. Stability. Identity.
Indeed I do. Photoshop here & there. A minute to learn, but a lifetime to master.
End of a busy week, almost permanently at my desk, day & night while it’s 32° outside. Ticked off a bunch of jobs on the design list, mainly brand identity projects, but also wrapped up the brand book for Image and Picture. Couldn’t have come out better, solid content, striking photography… A strong representation of the company
Amazing job from Dapper Signs on the signage for North West Barber Co. who I recently branded. So good to see the logo hand painted like this, Cooper couldn’t have done a better job. It’s impressive how the company has developed over the past few months, going from nothing to something. Everything from the refurbishment of the actual store, the barber shop chairs, the chesterfield sofa, the signage, everything… It’s all in the details
A re-brand project near completion for the Basketball Megastore. Just putting together the brand identity submission, including all preliminary work & design process. Majority of clients really appreciate seeing this, how the idea is built up from sketch to screen. Think this has come out well, a strong type based logo. Influenced by traditional sport teams & NBA hardwood classics. Wanted the type to almost look as if it was stamped or embossed into basketball, imitating the shape of the stitching.
Haven’t had too much time to post on here recently. Back to working around the clock after making the move to Berlin. Juggling a fair few clients, mainly brand identity jobs & even some larger projects out here in Germany. One thing I’ve nearly finished up is a brand book for Image & Picture, showing there various relationships within the industry & showing the development of the company over the past few years. Some really strong content in there, interesting questions & an insight into a film makers day to day life.
To build a home | Berlin, June 2013
So it’s only a couple of months until this years Festival No. 6, the second year running of the event I branded earlier last year. A humbling experience & still one of the biggest projects I’ve worked on to date. A huge amount of work went it from the whole team in the London office, as you can see in this beautiful showreel showing the highlights. All paid off when the festival won various awards last year, including best new coming event & best headline act with New Order.
Another job I’ve been wanting to post up for a while, the full brand identity for a new company, North West Barber Co. It’s been in the works for a while, but now it’s all approved & wrapped up. After putting down various sketches & developing a couple of outcomes digitally, we agreed on the more simpler design. Something strong & traditional, with the addition of the three icons to represent the store. Couldn’t be happier with the outcome, good to build it all from the ground up, just like the shop itself at the moment. Go check them out & support your local barbers.
The finished & approved logo for Henniker Clothing & Paintball Co. Forever Ballin.
I’ve been meaning to update my blog for a while now, juggling projects & balancing everything out while making the move to Berlin. Here’s a couple of projects I’ve wrapped up recently, including the logo for Henniker Clothing Co. I can’t post up the jobs I’m currently working on, due to the high profile of some of the clients. But I will be able to make an announcement or two soon. For day to day updates, follow me over on Instragram @js_designuk
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.
