Today I’m very excited to announce my redesigned website. Ever since becoming a freelance web developer my website has been a work in progress; something that I would finish off when I was less busy. I’m sure my old site must have put some clients off and it definitely didn’t reflect me in the way I wanted.
Well, I’m still busy, but I decided that 2011 would be the year I made my website something I was really proud of. It’s been my evening and weekend project for a little while now, and all the effort has finally paid off.
On previous redesign attempts … more
I've been thinking about the logo for my new site. Here are a few of my ideas: What do you think? more
G-Fest was a small garden party with a difference. I enlisted the skills of my various tallented friends to play live music and put on visuals. They did all the difficult stuff leaving me with the more enjoyable task of designing the brand for my mini festival and creating this T-Shirt. About 30 people are lucky enough to own one. I'm very proud of it, and it is by far my favourite T-Shirt. It's even better when I see my friends wearing theirs. It's a great feeling seeing your stuff out there. more
The Faculty was an Internet cafe on Hyde Park corner. It didn't last long, but the few people who did go may have noticed my the information and offer posters that I created. I did several things for this cafe and had a great time doing it. If I was to do things again I'd have staggered my ideas and kept things more consistent. I had so many ideas and I wanted to use them all at once. These posters were created by playing around with the colour and contrast on a photo I took of the outside of the cafe at night. I wanted to create a calm, colourful modern look and I'm pretty pleased with … more
This project didn't quite get finished because The Faculty Internet Cafe closed before they were finished. The idea behind my posters were that generally people at bus stops are quite bored. They've got time on their hands, can read quite a lot and might want to think about stuff. The posters suggested things you could do at a bus stop to pass the time. They also asked you to think of new things and submit them to the website. These were going to be put in later versions of the posters. I also wanted to make each poster unique to the bus stop it was on and include images of the bus stop. … more
I designed this flyer for an Internet Cafe that opened on Hyde Park corner. The cafe didn't even last long enough for my flyer to get handed out. So, it's a shame that not many people got to see it. When I was thinking about the project I thought about how many flyers you get, look at quickly and then throw away. I wanted to make people keep this one for longer. I decided the best way to do that, was to teach them to make something out of it. That's where the origami idea came from. This was to be the first of a series of them and had instructions on how to make an origami box. I think I … more
