Colliers International required branded materials for a presentation about major international districts that have become iconic from the Champs-Élysées in Paris to Madison Avenue in New York.
The brief was to design an individual standalone brand that showcased the international nature of the cities and districts being discussed and then develop the materials for print, powerpoint and web.
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PROSPECTUS
This piece of work was undertaken for Isle of Wight Council to help promote business across the island, predominantly in the tourism and leisure fields.
The prospectus comprised a variety of information from demographics to planning advice and it needed to be presented in a way that would reflect some of the passion and enthusiasm of the island whilst still making sure that the data was easily understood.
LOCUM DESTINATION REVIEW
The Locum Destination Review is a journal for the Destination industry looking at tourism, leisure, culture and retail projects around the world.
I was employed to design and publish the quarterly magazine. Every issue had a new editor which meant working with a variety of different people, skills and experience.
As the only person within the company who worked on every issue of the magazine my job inevitably took on more and more responsibility for getting it published. This meant managing budgets, sourcing imagery and organising production schedules to make sure that the magazine would be printed on time and be ready for distribution.
Place Matters is a Management Consultancy that advises on Retail and Destination business of all kinds. As such, I took my lead from the modern retail world and then leaned it towards a more corporate influence.
The client originally wanted a logo that would incorporate both the Place Matters wording and some kind of a badge, but as we developed the identity it became clear that a badge of any kind would detract from the Place Matters identity itself. The final design is a simple and understated use of colour and type that is versatile enough to work in almost any situation.
Kennedy Hygiene produce washroom products for the service industry.
I was asked to produce a range of design options to show the ease of use and versatility of the new 'ellipse' range of soap dispensers and hand towels.
It was felt that the existing materials the company had been using did not exemplify the clean and simple ethos of the product range, so I stripped the design back to the bare minimum and started to add only what was deemed absolutely necessary.
The main body of the design came together fairly quickly with the only problems coming from the multitude of different finishes and alternatives that I wanted to show without resorting to tables and lists.
Fontier Pitts is a security firm that builds perimeter security gates, bollards and barriers.
My main contribution to the job was not so much the quality of the design, but a fresh perspective on an old problem.
The company had been used to producing their collaterals for print, but over the years they had found themselves using less printed material and more e-documents. As such my advice to try a landscape design to better fit the format of computer monitors and tablets was a simple starting point.
Navigator Partnership is a counselling partnership that helps people in a variety of situations from marital and relationship problems to stress and anxiety in the workplace.
Wembley Council asked us to produce branding ideas to differentiate the distinct areas of Wembley as a whole, beyond it's identity as a venue for sports and events.
Alongside the logo ideas we also produced concepts for possible applications of the branding for different areas around Central Wembley.
Southport Council wanted to refresh the identity of the town centre as part of a broader regeneration throughout the area.
Taking iconic imagery from Southport’s heyday in the 1920’s we provided the client with 3 different options to start the development of the identity and options for how they could be applied.
We also supplied materials for use with the focus groups.
I was brought in to design and produce a bid document for a piece of work being tendered by English Heritage.
The bid itself was to produce ideas for existing heritage buildings that would make them sustainable in the long-term.
The bid was successful.
The main part of this job was to produce an Investment Brochure to raise funding for an Eco-tourism project in southern Portugal.
The brief required a combination of relaxing holiday imagery relating to the asirations of the project combined with a great deal of hard data to back up the financial arguments.
This small pamphlet was designed for Bord na Móna (Irish Tourist Board) to generate interest in the Sport & Leisure opportunities associated with the Water Supply infrastructure feeding Ireland's cities.
The project has three distinct focuses starting with creating the infrastructure to support Ireland's burgeoning cities. Second is to use the infrastructure in a way that will be able to provide a leisure and entertainment resource for people.
The third focus is to use the areas wildlife and natural resources to draw international and domestic tourism.
