International Cool Climate Wine Symposium

Banner design for ICCWS 2016After undertaking the branding for the International Cool Climate Wine Symposium (set for 2016), I’ve been pleased to do some more work for them, undertaking the design for its Patrons’ Circle – an exclusive members’ club for supporters.

It’s looking pretty swishy with some nice branding to emphasise the Circle’s exclusivity and I think the designs have a clean, classic aesthetic and an air of elegance.

Here I have included images of a pop-up banner stand, the cover to the Patrons’ Circle flyer, and a couple of the draft logo ideas I put together (based on the original ICCWS logo I did). We pondered a gold colour logo but opted for the goldy-green shades, a few shades different to the original logo.

poster for Mind’s world mental health day

Just done quite a sunny and fun design for Mind (Brighton & Hove) for the World Mental Health Day in October.

It’s quite uplifting and sunshiney and as well as adding some custom illustration elements, it ties in some of the their official branding pieces (the squiggly line drawings) which fit in quite nicely with the design.

old fashioned wedding invitations

One of my lovely clients, John Azzopardi from Horatio Jones (Bespoke Costumier) offered me a great project – creating an invitation to his wedding.

He had his heart set on a particular design he had found online (created by a very talented and original designer), and provided a pictorial sample plus the wording. I created an invite that closely followed the feel of the original but with a new design, new layout and illustration elements just for him. I really enjoyed this project as it was a chance to get truly creative with adorning and embellishing in an old fashioned style. I created some matching reply forms.

Am pleased to say the client loved it and I loved making it. It’s going to be printed on textured brown paper to add to the old fashioned feel and I can’t wait to see it in hard copy.
