Selected Recent Projects
As part of the “8 hours overtime for a good cause” event at Skyscanner, I led a small team to develop a new website for the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling 2016.Continue reading
Recent design trends towards clean, minimal website layouts and user interfaces have led to a whole host of bright white or light grey backgrounds illuminating our screens… but if you look at your laptop, tablet or phone a lot in the evening, sometimes you need something a little less “intense.”
This led me to exploring alternative branding and colour palettes for a few different brands, starting with social media app Buffer. Taking the concept a step further, I also created a custom skin for Buffer’s website to switch the whole site into ‘after dark mode.’ Continue reading to see the video time-lapse and website UI changes…
I worked closely with international choreographer Janis Claxton who needed to showcase her award-winning work on a website that would look great on all modern devices. Janis had assembled plenty of great images and reviews, but the content and structure of her previous site had become confusing and difficult to navigate. We began by breaking down what she wanted to achieve, and were then able to design and structure a new site to highlight her work simply and cleanly. A unique design now reflects the energy and personality of her work, so Janis can now more easily showcase her previous work to potential clients, and go on to produce more great work as a result.
After working together, Janis had this to say:
I recently had the pleasure of working with international fashion retailer M&Co. I designed their Autumn/Winter 2015 advertising campaign (which ran in the national press), as well as a one-off 8-page insert for a national newspaper and incorporating photography from their latest catalogue.
12months12books started life as a side-project while creating my 2016 Thank-You cards. After seeing some beautiful letterpressed bookmarks, the idea of producing a bookmark which would encourage year-long reading and the discovery of new books was born!
MBElectrical is a family-owned electrical contractor working across residential, commercial and industrial sectors. They pride themselves on providing the highest quality of workmanship, reliability, value for money and excellent customer service.
Their identity needed to reflect these values and set them apart from other electrical contractors. I have worked with the company’s directors – George and Paul – over the last few years, originally producing their new identity and business stationery, and more recently designing their new responsive website, various marketing materials, van livery, and signage for their new office.
Pulse College provides some of the industry’s leading training courses in audio, music, film, gaming and animation. I recently completed a Sound Engineering Diploma at Pulse, and got to know the Directors — Tony, Aidan and Naomi — who are some of the nicest and most talented people I’ve met 🙂
I worked with them over the course of several months to design a new identity which was applied to a new website (which I also designed for them), their promotional videos, email newsletters, prospectus, and the signage used inside their studios.
